The One Thing You Don't Want to Miss
Take a stroll down Langelinie Promenade to see the heart of Copenhagen. It runs along the water from the port, skirting the 300-year-old, moated citadel near the celebrated statue of Hans Christian Andersen's Little Mermaid. The surrounding park is home to the Gefion Fountain, Copenhagen's most spectacular fountain.
Other Fun Things to Do
- Visit two of Copenhagen's most famous castles - the Rosenborg, home to the Danish crown jewels, and the Christianborg, the house of Denmark's three supreme powers.
- See the symbol of Copenhagen, the famous bronze sculpture of the Little Mermaid.
- Visit the Canals of Gammel Strand and the water fountain of Gefion.
- Pay your respects at the Resistance Museum, featuring relics of the Resistance Movement during the German occupation of World War II.
Get a Taste of Local Flavor
The Danes are probably best known for their open-face sandwiches (smorrebrod) of which there are many tempting varieties. Typical of Scandinavia, the "cold table" buffet-style lunch is also very popular, consisting of many types of fish and seafood, particularly herring, which may be pickled, marinated, or fried; a range of cold meats and pâtés; and even the odd hot dish such as meatballs. World-renowned Danish pasty is very common and oddly enough referred to as wienerbrod, or Viennese pastry.
The unit of currency in Denmark is the Krone (DKK). U.S. dollars are accepted in some of the more touristic stores and major credit cards are also widely accepted.
