Dronning Louises Bro

This is the world’s busiest bicycle street! The bridge connects the city centre with the buzzing Nørrebro area, and is also a popular hangout spot, especially on sunny days.


Maersk Tower

An amazing work of architecture with its zig-zagging park path on ground level and iconic shape raising above the neighbourhood. The tower is open to the public with unparalleled views of Copenhagen.


The Gefion Fountain by The Citadel

Since 1626 The Citadel has housed military barracks and offices, but today the area is open to the public and a favourite green lung for a brisk walk or jog on the ramparts and the beautiful Gefion fountain.


Amalienborg Palace

Amalienborg Palace is of course a must for anyone with a taste for royal history and the life of Denmark’s royal family who still resides inside the palace.


The Marble Church

The awe-inspiring Marble Church with the characteristic copper green dome has to be one of the most impressive churches of the city - and is definitely home to one of the best views in town.


King's New Square

Kongens Nytorv is a central and historic square and home to prominent institutions such as the Royal Theatre, Hotel D'Angleterre and the Kunsthal Charlottenborg.


The old stock exchange (Børsen)

The Old Stock Exchange dates back to 1625 and is one of the oldest buildings in Copenhagen, located by the picturesque Holmens Canal in the historic city centre.  


The Royal Danish Library - The Black Diamond

The Black Diamond in Copenhagen was finished in 1999 and is an extension to the Royal Library. The building's shiny, black facede has become an architectural icon, and the interior will leave you in awe. 


Tivoli Gardens

The historic city centre amusement park dates all the way back to 1843 and has enchanted Copenhageners and visitors ever since. Including Hans Christian Andersen and Walt Disney.


City Hall Square

The main square is where Copenhageners gather for public celebrations, demonstrations, concerts … and to watch the riders cross the finish line.
