Here you can browse among cool Danish design shops, international brands and small specialty shops whilst passing many historic monuments on the way. Start your walk at the Town Hall Square (Rådhuspladsen) and don’t stop until you reach The King’s New Square (Kongens Nytorv) and New Harbour (Nyhavn).
The Residence of the Danish Royal Family (Amalienborg)
Get a glimpse of the Queen or take pictures of the Royal Guard with their gaudy uniforms and black bearskins hats.

The little Mermaid (Den lille havfrue)
The Little Mermaid, which stems from a fairytale by the Danish poet H.C. Andersen, is Denmark's most famous tourist attraction. It was donated to the city of Copenhagen by Carl Jacobsen and created by Edvard Eriksen, who used his wife, Eline, as a model.
The City Lakes (Søerne)
Did you bring your running shoes? When in Denmark, do as the Danes do, and go for that daily morning run along the City Lakes. If you run all the way around you will do 6.35 kilometres.
The King’s Garden (Kongens Have)
In this popular park in the middle of Copenhagen locals swarm together on a hot summer’s day with their blankets and picnic baskets. From here you can see Rosenborg Castle, where the crown jewels are exhibited.
New Harbour (Nyhavn)
Nyhavn is definitely a must-see when you visit Copenhagen. Particularly in the summer months when the postcard-pretty canal are blooming with life and people having lunch and a beer in the sun at one of the many sidewalk cafés. Enjoy the view of the old colourful houses, which are more than 300 years old, and of course the characteristic canal, which was originally excavated by Swedish war prisoners.
The King’s New Square (Kongens Nytorv)
The beautiful circular town square houses the Royal Danish Theatre (Det Kongelige Teater) and the impressive shopping centre, Magasin. The square is currently under construction due to the upcoming Metro, which is expected to finish in 2018.
