Copenhagen culture, gastronomy and history

98%
Found this guide helpful

This guide gives you three different experiences with culture, gastronomy and history in CPH and North Zealand. Day 1 starts in "Kongens Have", brings you to Rosenborg Castle (with the crown jewels), continues to SMK (art museum with among other some fine modern french paintings) and "Hirschsprungs Collection" (with the Skagen painters) and ends in the Botanical Gardens. A suggestion for lunch is either Orangeriet (in Kongens Have) og Aamanns (close to Hirshsprung) (both serve modernized versions of danish open sandwiches) and a suggestion for dinner is "Kokkeriet" (one star Michelin, close to Kongens Have, reservation is needed). All these places are within rather short walking distances. The second day brings you along the harbour. The last part of the Danish word Køben-havn means harbour and the harbour has been central to the city in all of its history,. Depending on where you stay in CPH, you can start from the part of the suggested route, that is closest. I start this route at Højbro place with the statue of the founder of CPH - Absalon. Walk along the Parliament, Christiansborg Castle, the old stock exchange and to the harbour. The bridge to your left is Knippelsbro and the building to your right is the royal library with the restaurant SørenK and a cafe. If the weather is nice you can have coffee outside. Return to Knippelsbro and continue under it and walk along the harbour. On the opposite side you can watch the new ministry of foreign affairs and several older buildings. After some minutes you reach Nyhavn and on the opposite side of the harbour the restaurant Noma is situated. Walk a bit down Nyhavn to the bridge and continue to the modern building "Skuespilhuset" - part of the Royal Theatre. You can also sit outside here, if the weather permits. Continue further along the harbour, the new Opera house (also parts of the Royal theatre) is on the opposite side. Now you reach Amaliehaven and Amalienborg, the residence of the Queen. Make a detour to the statue in the middle of the square and (if you want) walk further to Marmorkirken, go inside and sense the athmosphere. Return to the harbour and continue to Nordre Toldbod. Again it is possible to sit outside. And from here you can also take the harbour bus (a single trip ticket required) back to your starting point (or investigating other parts of the harbour). At Toldboden it is also possible to visit the gourmet shop Løgismose. If you like, you can buy some food and eat it at one of the benches. Proceed further north along Langelinje with the (very) Little Mermaid. Further out there are several outlets selling Danish design and clothes at very reasonable prices. If you proceed to the end of the pier you can among other see the new UN Buildings. Consider to end the day watching a performance at the Royal Theatre. At the old stage you can watch the Royal Ballet (Bournonvilles famous la Sylphide is on the program for the season 2015/16). Day 3 brings you North of CPH. Buy a day ticket for all zones and take the S-train to Hillerød, visit the impressive Frederiksborg Castle (introduces Danish history and has shields of recipients of the order of the Elephant, among other Nelson Mandela), walk in the very nice garden and proceed from Hillerød station with the local train to Elsinore. Walk to Kronborg Castle and go around it along Øresund (there is not much to be seen inside). An option is to take the ferry to Sweden and have lunch on-board. A return trip will take a little more than one hour. Take the regional train from Elsinore station to Humlebæk station, walk to the museum of modern art Louisiana. If visiting a day with long opening hours you can have the buffet dinner. Return by train from Humlebæk to CPH.

    Gunnar G Says:

    This is one of the most visited churches by tourists and you can get info on the net or in the church about the history of the church. But it is also visited by locals at sunday service and it has an excellent priest and organist. Remember to sit down and sense the athmosphere.

    Gunnar G Says:

    This is the finest museum of modern art in Denmark and it has a unique location close to Øresund. The permanent collection has many interesting paintings, among other a masterpiece by David Hockney. Don't miss Yayoi Kusamas installation "Gleaming Lights of the Souls". You may need to stand in line. Only two persons are permitted at a time. But it is worth waiting. In the 2015/16 season two major special exhibitions show painting by Peter Doig (until august 2015) and in the autumn there is an exhibition by Kusama.
