With beautiful weather, tons of attractions, delicious dining and heaps of cultural events, it's no wonder that Copenhagen is often described as the happiest city in the world. There's a little something for everyone in this town, which makes it a high-spirited place for both residents and visitors. Copenhagen holiday packages promise travellers endless entertainment with a dash of culture, as well as fun nightlife and some partying to be had on the side.
As the biggest city in Denmark, Copenhagen has no shortage of things to do. When you arrive, consider booking one of Wotif’s Copenhagen car hire options to get around to all of the sights on your list. Need some time away from this super jovial place? Take road trips to Lolland, extend your holiday to Odense or to enjoy a solitary cruise through the beautiful scenery.
Once you arrive in Copenhagen, start your travels with a visit to iconic Nyhavn Canal. This waterway is lined with bright, colourful buildings, delicious restaurants and artists making music. You can sip beer and watch historic wooden boats go by, or take a cruise down the canal. For a truly unique experience, wander over to Freetown Christiania—an "autonomous free town" where the citizens make their own laws and rules. (Leave the camera in your hotel room—they don't allow pictures!) For some history and culture, visit two of the royal homes in town: Christiansborg Palace and Frederiksborg Castle. If you’ve got an interest in fish-people, take a peek at the Little Mermaid statue by Erik Eriksen at the Langelinie Promenade: it's an essential part of all Copenhagen holidays!
Like all world-class big cities, Copenhagen has excellent shopping…especially if you like fashion. Hear that, friends? Bring an extra suitcase to haul back all your finds. Check out the upscale clothing shops that line Stroget or wander through the trendy district of Vesterbro.
Copenhagen has recently been dubbed a culinary capital, which means your diet does not apply here. The city is home to several of the world's best restaurants, many with one or more Michelin stars. Visit the city centre and take your pick of traditional Danish, European or Asian restaurants for some unforgettable haute cuisine. Alternately, the Norrebro district is a great choice for brewpubs, eclectic cafes and local fare. Wherever you dine, look for opportunities to sample smorrebrod—a traditional, open-face sandwich of various toppings on dense rye bread that's ideal for lunch or a snack.
Let’s be blunt—you can’t leave Copenhagen without getting a sample of its nightlife. Have a cocktail or go dancing at one of the posh lounges in Norrebro. There are pubs and restaurants open all night, so if you prefer exploring cities after dark, you'll find no shortage of fun.
The people in Copenhagen always seem so happy—wouldn’t you like to see what’s in their water? Wotif will help you discover your own share of that happiness by offering the most affordable Copenhagen packages, so you can experience the holiday you want without breaking the bank!
