Top Places worth visiting in Copenhagen:
Church of Our Saviour
At Christianshavn you will find Vor Frelsers Kirke. The Church is characterized by its spire with an exterior winding staircase which leads up to a golden globe with a statue of the victorious Christ on top. You need to climb 400 steps to reach the top but it’s worth the view.
The Little Mermaid : The statue is situated on the waterfront on Langelinie Pier in Copenhagen Harbour and is a national landmark and synonymous with Copenhagen.It is also one of the most photographed statues in the world.
The Marble Church (Marmorkirken) and surroundings : Built by Frederik V, the impressive Marmorkirke is northern Europe’s answer to St Peter’s in Rome. Only a short walk from the church is Amalienborg Palace – the royal castle and the winter residence of the Queen.Between the castle and the waterfront lies Copenhagen’s newest park –Amaliehaven. The new Opera House can be viewed from the park.
Tivoli Gardens: The city’s beloved pleasure park has the perfect mix of traditional and modern fair ground attractions, beautiful gardens, great eating spots and lots of live music.
National Gallery : Museum for Kunst is the only place in Denmark, which features 700 years of Western art and cultural history under one roof.
