Start your day with visiting the Little Mermaid, which is considered one of Copenhagen’s major sights. The statue is easily accessible along a boardwalk. Buy a snack or a drink from one the shops close by the Little Mermaid and don't forget to take pictures of this famous, fairy-tale statue!
After taking pictures of the Little Mermaid, you can head over to Kastellet, where you will also find a free public restroom, which is accessible by wheelchair. The restroom is located at the Langelinie Park. When you have seen the Little Mermaid and Kastellet, head over to Amalienborg Palace, which is the official residence of the Danish Royal Family. The changing of the Royal Guards is a must-see and takes place in front of Amalienborg Palace every day at 12 noon. Amalienborg Palace is located approx. 1,1 kilometres from the Little Mermaid.
Lunch and afternoon
When you have seen the changing of the Royal Guards at Amalienborg Palace, why not visit the Designmuseum Denmark, which is located approx. 400 meters from Amalienborg Palace. Here, you can experience Danish design classics like Poul Henningsen and Arne Jacobsen. The museum also has a café where you can taste the famous Danish open-faced sandwiches. You can get around the main floor of the museum in a wheelchair, and access exhibits, the café, the shop, and the library. Unfortunately, the museum has no elevator to the first floor, where the conference facilities, assembly hall, and porcelain collection are located.
After visiting the Designmuseum, head to Nyhavn, which is the city’s iconic heritage harbour with quaint townhouses and old schooners.
