Copenhagen, one of the most cycle-friendly cities I have ever visited, impressed me almost instantly. Relaxing and cool vibes of the city make it easy to feel like home. Discover the wide range of fantastic things and activities to do in the city, where to eat , what to do and which places to visit, from local attractions to food and entertainment.
TOP THINGS TO DO
Nyhavn‘s colourful houses caught my eye. Nyhavn, Copenhagen‘s historical harbour, one of the most picturesque areas, is a must see when in the city.
Visited Christiansborg Palace (95 DKK). Free access to the tower, from where you can admire Copenhagen’s overwhelming beauty.
