Charming streets, high fashion and fine dining: Copenhagen holidays offer great escapes

Copenhagen’s colourful townhouses, lively harbour and cobblestone streets have long cast an old-world spell on visitors, but as the seaside metropolis swaps its cashmere cardigans, candlelit cafes and casual cookery for cutting-edge designers, eye-popping palettes and Michelin-starred restaurants, it’s quickly becoming an eclectic city of contrasts. If you’re planning on cosying up to the hygge capital of the world, there’s never been a better time to book a trip to Copenhagen. With ebookers you’ll discover Copenhagen holidays that show you the best of both worlds, whether you’re interested in a luxury hotel in up-and-coming Ørestad or a low-key guesthouse overlooking the quaint streets of Indre By. And by booking Copenhagen flights and hotels together, you can save up to 15%.

Don’t forget the beaches! What to see and do on a holiday to Copenhagen

Copenhagen is packed with things to do, and taking a harbour and canal cruise, a bike tour, or a hop-on, hop-off bus tour is a good way to get a crash course in the city’s lore. If you’re history-minded, think about touring the 17th-century Rosenborg Castle, stopping by the royal palace at Amalienborg or romping around kitschy Tivoli Gardens – one of the oldest amusement parks on the planet. The city has also become a world-class destination for design hounds, and you can check out the fashion-forward furnishings at Hay House and Dansk Møbelkunst. If you’re an art buff, take an amble around the eclectic galleries in hip Vesterbro’s Meatpacking District and on Bredgade in Indre By. Copenhagen also has some wonderful beaches, and Helgoland on Amager beach is one of the oldest sea baths in the city.

When’s the best time to plan a trip to Copenhagen?

Copenhagen is an idyllic summertime destination, as the city really come alive and it’s a pleasure to while away a day kicking back in the open-air cafes, strolling the winding cobblestone streets or setting out a picnic in the sprawling King’s Garden. Unsurprisingly, this is also Copenhagen’s high season, so if you’re planning on visiting between July and September, make sure to book in advance. Winters in Copenhagen are pleasantly inviting, and you’ll find the city’s renowned hospitality on full display in the form of soft lighting, log fires, and intimate restaurants serving hearty smørrebrød sandwiches. It’s a good chance to strap on some ice skates and hit the frozen lakes, take in the lights and live music at The Frost Festival, or tour Hans Christian Andersen’s houses in Nyhavn and see where he was inspired to write “The Snow Queen”. Even if you’re a sun-worshipper, it’s hard to deny that winters in Copenhagen can be fairytale-esque.

Travelling from Copenhagen Airport

Situated above Terminal 3, the metro offers service every 4 to 6 minutes during the day, and every 15 to 20 minutes at night. The journey to the city centre takes about 13 minutes. There are also trains and buses, as well as taxis. Hiring a car makes travelling with luggage easier, and gives you the chance to explore off-the-beaten-path destinations.

Top Copenhagen attractions

Statens Museum for Kunst

The national gallery of Denmark was created in 1824 at Christiansborg Slot as a place for the royal family’s art collection, and is currently the biggest art museum in the country. Admission is free for the museum’s collections and small exhibitions, while the museum’s airy café also comes highly recommended.

Museum Erotica

Understandably one of the city’s most popular museums, this establishment is full of erotic objects, images, and films not intended for the fainthearted.

Fredriksborg Slot

This castle is impressive, spread across a handful of islets on Slotsø Lake. In its glory days, it was a formidable fortress with beautiful interiors—paintings and gilded ceilings. Today it is a national museum where you can look around the 70 rooms open to visitors. Especially interesting is the Coronation Chapel, where Danish royalty accepted their fancy new crowns from 1671 until 1840. The Dutch Renaissance-style castle is open every day.

Jens Olsens Clock

Atop the city hall stands a 105-meter-tall clock tower, whose visitors can climb to the top. The clock is named after its Danish designer and cost one million kroner to construct. Not your average clock, it displays solar time, planet revolutions, sidereal time, and the calendar—it even shows the different holidays.

Vor Frue Kirke

Copenhagen’s cathedral was built in 1191, yet has been reconstructed three times due to fires. The current building, built in the neoclassical style, has stood since 1829. Art buffs will appreciate the exquisite sculptures of Jesus Christ and his 12 disciples, the most famous works by sculptor Bertel Thorvaldsen, which he created in the early 19th century. His statue of Christ has become an international model for countless of other sculptures. In 2004, the cathedral hosted one of Denmark’s most notable weddings when Prince Frederik married Mary Donaldson.

How to move around in Copenhagen

Airport

Copenhagen Airport is in Amager, eight kilometres south of the centre. Taxis and buses are available right at the airport entrance or from the station under Terminal 3. From there, the Copenhagen Metro can connect you to the city centre, as well as all other major cities in Denmark.

Getting Around

Copenhagen’s bus and train network is excellent. Most of your travel will likely take place within two of the zones. Single tickets are good for an hour’s worth of travel and are valid for the metro, buses, and S-train. The metro system travels through the eastern part of the city centre, and the S-train has nearly a dozen lines that pass through Central Station. Ten-ticket cards can also be purchased at a discounted rate. The trains and buses operate from 05:00hrs until 00:30hrs, but buses on a few of the main routes run through the night, although the fare is double. You can obtain free city maps complete with bus routes from the tourist office.

Taxis can be hailed on the street, and if its light-up taxa sign is on, that means the taxi is available. There are also taxi ranks around the city, and taxis even accept most credit cards.

Bicycling is a wonderful means of exploring Copenhagen. There are many bike lanes and you may also board the S-train with your bike, at off-peak hours. Bookshops sell cycling maps.

Getting around Copenhagen by car is fairly easy and traffic is not bad, except during rush hours. Car hire in Copenhagen is therefore a convenient option, and gives you the chance to explore further afield.
