How to Spend 1 Day in Copenhagen

How to Spend 1 Day in Copenhagen

The capital of Denmark, dynamic Copenhagen has everything you’d expect from a Scandinavian city: waterfront scenery, stylish design, friendly locals, and culture aplenty. If you only have one day in town, make the most of your stay by going on a whistle-stop tour of its most popular attractions. Here’s how to maximize your 24 hours in Copenhagen.

Morning: See the Top Sights

Copenhagen is packed with world-class landmarks, and a hop-on hop-off bus tour is an ideal way to see more highlights in less time. Pick from a number of different routes, and look forward to seeing postcard-worthy views of theLittle Mermaid statue, Amalienborg Palace, City Hall Square, Frederiksberg Gardens, the Copenhagen Zoo, and more. If you’re after another way of exploring, some hop-on hop-off tours even take advantage of the city’s many scenic waterways and include sightseeing portions by boat. 

Afternoon: Sample Culinary Highlights

Made famous by chefs like Noma’s René Redzepi, so-called New Nordic cuisine is currently one of the food world’s biggest trends. Don’t miss your chance to sample authentic Scandinavian cooking straight from the source during your Copenhagen stay. Sign up for a leisurely culinary walking tour for a seamless introduction to the city’s top food haunts. Explore the gastronomic bounty at the Torvehallerne indoor food market, order classic Danishsmørrebrød (open-faced sandwiches), and even try Copenhagen-brewed beers—the city’s craft brewing scene is also thriving.

Evening: Have an Adventurous Night Out

End your Copenhagen stay on a high note—quite literally—when you venture to Tivoli Gardens. An amusement park located in the center of town, Tivoli Gardens also has history: the postcard-ready pleasure garden has been operating since 1843. Prebook park admission for skip-the-line privileges, or explore Tivoli with a guided tour. Because Tivoli Gardens doesn’t close its doors until after dark, you’ll have plenty of opportunity to go for repeat rides on its thrilling roller coasters. Should you want a late-night nibble or tipple, take a quick stroll from Tivoli to Copenhagen’s Meatpacking District, Kødbyen, where trendy bars and restaurants line Flæsketorvet Square.
