Attractions in CopenhagenAs well as being the capital city, Copenhagen is the largest city in Denmark, so there is a lot to do here. You can visit the stock market, one of the oldest buildings in Copenhagen, which is now considered the core of Danish industry. You can also visit the famous Hotel d'Angleterre, Charlottenborg, Kings Garden or the National Museum.
You’ll find a magnificent marble church in the hub of this capital city. The building’s architectural style was inspired by St. Peter's Basilica in Rome. Plus, on weekends you can enjoy a full view of the city from the top of the church.
From the marble church, you can easily make your way to other attractions in the city such as Stroget (the longest pedestrian street in the world) the Town Hall (Radhuspladsen), which itself then leads up to the spectacular Kongens Nytorv (King’s New Square) - where you can shop at the magnificent array of stores. Plus you can experience many different examples of Danish culture, from the popular pier, to the most famous monument in Copenhagen.
Along the quay there are many outlet stores, and large cruise ships dock into the harbour – with lots of parking spaces for your Avis hire car. Make sure to take in a dose of culture at the National Theatre Könglichen (founded in 1748) where you can experience a wealth of great plays, ballets and operas.
You can also visit the Statens Museum for ‘Kunst’ (art in Danish) - located in Denmark's National Gallery. It holds a large collection of paintings by Danish and international artists from the 14th century to the modern day.
The Botanical Garden in Copenhagen, which actually belongs to Copenhagen University, is also a beautiful attraction where you can discover a wide variety of plants and botanical delights.
