What to do :
Arrived in the airport at 11 am on Saturday, after I collected the Copenhagen Card at the airport I took the subway for the center and stop at the Kongens Nytorv, where I started my trip of Copenhagen. Firstly, I took the boat tour in Gammel Strand 32.
After the 1 hour tour of the channals, where you can get an overview of the town, I move toward the Nyhavn, the channal with all the pretty colerful houses.
Then I visit the big classic the Amalienborg Palace, the home of the Danish royals’ during winter open till 4pm (price without CHP Card 95 DKK), then I moved to the Frederikskirke (open till 5pm).
Walking toward the Little Marmeid I have done a stop to the amazing Design Museum, where I spent a little more than an hour, there is an amazing japanese collection.
To reach the Little Marmeid you need to pass by the Kastellet, an amazing place where you can find a really cute red wind mill.
Finally around 6 pm I reach the Little Marmeid, really pretty but a couple of selphie and it is almost time for dinner: a really nice restaurant with an amazing vegetarian buffet for (99 DKK) is the RizRaz (Kompagnistraede 20, Copenhagen 1208, Denmark).
To start the day Rosemborg Castle at 10 am ( 110 DKK without the CPH card) where an hour should be enought, then the National Gallary where I spent an hour focusing on Danish Modern and contemporary art.
For lunch I reached the Torvehallerne, passing by the Bothanic garden, where I ate an amazing Smorrebrod with smoked and spiced harrings amazing, followed by a fishcake.
Time for a drink and what place better then Carlsberg, where with the CPH you get an entrance ticket, that include a free beer and a little gift from the shop, moreover you can also do the tour of the neighboorhood with a carriage, really interesting and a definately different experience to the normal walk.
Finishing the day with some classics like the Christianborg Palace, where I higly reccomend a free guided tour, followed by a 360° view from the tour of the Palace. Then I continued my visit of Copenhagen with the Round Tower and the Town Hall.
Then I walked passed Tivoli Garden, that I couldn’t visit because closed, so I entered in the Build-A-Bear Workshop, where I bought the most amazing teddy bear with lavander scent.
The morning after I was back in London ready to work.
P.S. If tivoli garden is open definately visit them during the evening for dinner (moreover are included in the CPH Card). If you have an extra day and the weather is pretty visit the Kronborg or Frederiksborg Castle (transportation and entrance ticket are included in the CPH, that is quite great)
