Rådhuset, the beautiful 18th century city hall is what you will probably first run into as it is found right by the square where the famous pedestrian shopping street Ströget starts. Ströget is littered with nice little shops, from the high-end brands to small Danish boutiques.

Denmark and Copenhagen is famous for chocolates and Danish pastries and along this street you will be sure to find pastry shops and chocolate stores as well as brew pubs, as the Danes are also famous for their love of beer!

When in Copenhagen try something new; at Experimentarium you can challenge your knowledge of physics and every day technology as well as experiment with apparatus you have never come across before. For the more traditional traveler a visit to Tivoli, Copenhagen’s 100-year-old amusement park is a must, to bring out the child within.

If you happen to be in Copenhagen around Christmas, check out the Christmas market at Tivoli, complete with Santa Land and all! Don’t miss Copenhagen’s alternative hippie village Christiania, with most of the houses built by the artistic inhabitants of this cooperative.
