See & Do

Town Hall Square

All the city's main museums, attractions and shopping are either right off the Town Hall Square or a short walk from it. It's not the prettiest place in Copenhagen, but what it lacks in beauty, it more than makes up for in purpose.

Nyhavn

Nyhavn means new harbor, and today, it's a very touristy area with small restaurants and bars facing the canal. But it wasn't always this family-friendly. It used to be a red light district catering to sailors from abroad.

Christianshavn

The neighborhood of Christianshavn is a 10-minute ride from Town Hall Square. If you're looking for Danish pastry, or wienerbrød, you can't go wrong in Christianshavn. Translated, wienerbrød means Viennese bread.

Shopping

Right off Town Hall Square is Copenhagen's main shopping street, which is actually 5 streets pieced together into a long, pedestrian-only thoroughfare for a major shopping experience.

The Square Hotel

The Square Hotel is located right off Town Hall Square. It is one of the few hotels in Copenhagen that has a strong Danish design aesthetic. The Square is a big hotel, which is surprising because it has such an intimate, boutique feel.

Hot Dog Stands

About every 20 feet in Copenhagen is a hot dog stand. Order it with or without the bun. The typical toppings are ketchup, mustard and cucumber salad. The Danes traditionally wash down their dogs with chocolate milk.
