Whether you're looking for a candlelit dinner or exhilarating outdoor activities, here are the most romantic things to do in Copenhagen for couples
1. Visit the Tycho Brahe Planetarium
Looking for creative dates in Copenhagen? Spend a day or night gazing up at the stars at Tycho Brahe Planetarium.
Take a look at the realistic, changing night sky. You and your partner can learn about what you're looking at in the sky, from constellations to planets. Take in the peace and quiet of the universe while relaxing together under the stars.
Afterwards, you can take a break from the night sky and watch informative movies with reoccurring showtimes. You can learn about the journey to space or Earth's history. There are also interactive exhibits featuring a range of space-related topics.
2. Eat on Top of the World
One of the most romantic dinners in Copenhagen takes place on top of the world — or at least 106 meters in the air.
Christiansborg Palace Tower is the highest tower in Copenhagen. You and your loved one can get a bird's eye view of the city. And on a clear day, it's said you can see all the way to Sweden!
After taking in the sites, sit down for a romantic meal at Christiansborg Tarnet, located at the top of the tower. The restaurant features classic Denmark cuisine with an unbeatable view. Talk about romantic!
3. Go for a Stroll in Superkilen Park
Superkilen Park is one of the great hidden spots in Copenhagen. The area is divided into three different parks, so plan to visit each one and decide on a favourite as a couple.
The Red Square is a gathering place for musicians and sport-enthusiasts, complete with a cafe. The Black Market is a more traditional area with fountains and benches for relaxing. The Green Park is pet-friendly and the perfect location for a picnic.
Each area has distinct artistic elements that make them a great spot to take a few photos of you and your significant other.
4. Get Physical at Norrebrohallen
Looking for something a little more physical than a leisurely stroll? Head over to Norrebrohallen.
This sports facility has activities for every couple to enjoy together. Try your hand at basketball, boxing, and even table tennis. There's also a climbing wall for the more adventurous couple.
But the excitement doesn't stop at sports. The complex offers a large variety of events and cultural activities. Check out their full schedule of events online.
5. Cruise in a Swan Boat
Another one of the fun things to do in Copenhagen as a couple is to cruise in a swan boat.
While there are plenty of river and boat tours in the area, a swan boat tour will create a long-lasting memory. Head over to Peblinge So Lake and rent a swan boat, you can pay for half-hour increments.
The paddle boats fit two people, making it a cosy and romantic ride. Take your time paddling up and down the shores and enjoying the sights around you.
6. Live Like Royalty at Kronborg Castle
It's time to treat your loved one like they royalty they are with a trip to a real-life castle.
Kronborg Castle, also known as Hamlet's Castle, offers guided tours or you can explore on your own. Experience the magic of this castle as you learn about the history of each room.
You can even rent out the castle for events. Can anyone else hear wedding bells?
7. Admire the Art at Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek
Another unique date idea is to admire art together. Spend a day at NY Carlsberg Glyptotek, which has over 10,000 works of art and archaeological objects from a span of 6,000 years.
The collection is based on Carl Jacobsen's personal collection, whose father was the founder of Carlsberg Breweries. The most impressive collection in the gallery is the many portrait sculptures.
If sculptures aren't your thing, there are many other exhibits. Even if you aren't an art history expert, you'll recognize some of the artists featured like Renoir, Van Gogh, and Degas.
8. Create a Love Lock
If you still are wondering how to have a date in Copenhagen, visit the iconic Love Lock Bryggebroen bridge.
The idea is to visit the bridge as a couple, bringing a padlock. Write a message about your love or just your initials on the lock. Then, lock the padlock onto the bridge, symbolizing your everlasting love for each other.
You can revisit your love lock on each future trip to Copenhagen and remember that date forever. Just remember to keep your locks to Bryggebroen Bridge, as locks on other bridges in Denmark get removed.
