Location: Indre By, Copenhagen, Denmark


Nyhavn, a 17th-century harbor, is easily the most iconic landmark in Copenhagen.

Stop for a coffee and pastry at 108 before exploring one of the oldest parts of the city.


Tivoli Gardens

Address: Vesterbrogade 3, 1630 København V, Denmark


The Tivoli is the second oldest amusement park in the world. It is located in the center of the capital, opposite the railway station. The total area is eight hectares. The park attracts about 4.5 million visitors annually.  The area features restaurants, cafés and amusement rides for all ages. The park also serves as a place for several comedy theatre shows and concerts. The music has been an essential part of the Tivoli from the beginning, and the first musical director was a composer and conductor called Hans Christian Lumbye. His career lasted 30 years, and the Champagne Galop composed by him is still the starting melody of the annual opening ceremony of the park.


The Tivoli is open in summer from the beginning of May until the middle of September and during the Christmas Carnival in November and December. Especially during Halloween the Tivoli fascinates with its evening lights and decorations.
