Copenhagen Travel Guide

If you visit in the winter months, the best way to experience Copenhagen is simply to bundle up and walk the streets—starting in Nyhavn, where colorful row houses line the canal, and venturing to hipster enclaves like Vesterbro. In the summer, however, Copenhagen is all about getting out on the canals and soaking in the 17 hours of sunlight.

Whether it's your first time to Copenhagen and you're looking for a classic experience—staying downtown overlooking Kongens Nytorv (New King's Square), dining at Noma, strolling the Tivoli Gardens—or you're looking for a more eclectic do-as-the-locals-do vacation, this Scandi city can satisfy any travel palette. From the Hans Christian Andersen statue at Rosenborg Castle Gardens to the foodie spots (think: a bakery founded by talent from San Francisco's Tartine) to the low-down on high-class neighborhoods like Frederiksberg, consider this your essential Copenhagen guide.
