What to see and What to eat
I feel so privileged to call this modern, relaxed city my home town. With over 1000 years of history as a commercial center, filled with entrepreneurial spirit and beautiful modern design, I’m inspired each time I come into the city.
I love the water and harbor and highly recommend all my friends to start their visit with a cruise of the canals. I find it’s a good way to get quick view of the city, its history and architecture while sitting down. In an hours cruise you see plenty, the little Mermaid, Opera house, Nyhavn, Christianshavn, The Black Diamond and Christiansborg castle.
If there is one museum I recommend, it would be the Carlsberg Experience. History of how the beer industry developed around the town and how the town developed around the beer industry is packed into a compact, entertaining package and at the end waits the reward, a few beers to end the tour. The area is under a lot of construction and is being build to accommodate the modern, urban citizens in old historical surroundings.
If your hungry after the tour I would recommend lunch in one of the traditional danish Family gardens where you can eat the local open sandwiches. I usually take my mom to Hansens Gamle Familiehave and she loves it.
On a clear day, you can see all the way to Sweden. Besides a beautiful building, you get a great view of the city with tons of cool steeples and spires.
