The capital of Denmark is called one of the safest, happiest and friendliest places in the world. Treat your eyes to the beauty of Nyhavn and its brightly colored houses or shop around Copenhagen’s largest shopping area, one of the longest pedestrian-only shopping avenues around the world! Visit Tivoli Gardens amusement park, which is open in summer and served as an inspiration for Disneyland. Copenhagen’s citadel “Kastellet”, constructed in the form of a pentagram with bastions at its corners, was founded by the Danish King Christian IV in 1626. Close by you can find the iconic little Mermaid sculpture – one of Copenhagen’s most famous tourist attraction! The autonomous district Christiania is a green and car-free area in which an alternative society is practiced. Houses are not bought but applied for and given, and they are the homes to many artists, craftsmen, musicians, organic cafés and restaurants.
Ten minutes north of Copenhagen is the world’s oldest amusement park Dyrehavsbakken, or Bakken for short. Another worthy stop close to Copenhagen is Kronborg Castle – a 16th century castle and inspiration for the setting of Shakespeare’s play Hamlet.
