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 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.

Tivoli is the No. 1 attraction in Denmark. Tivoli has been a favorite Copenhagen destination since 1843. Tivoli has beautiful gardens, an old-fashioned midway and dozens of restaurants.

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.
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.
