Explore Copenhagen By Day...

For a day spent ashore, these are the places to be pampered, the sights to see, the shopping districts to delve into, and the gourmet treats to discover.

Arndal Spa and Fitness Centre
Copenhagen’s most prestigious hotel, Hotel D’Angleterre, is home to the exquisite Arndal Spa and Fitness Centre; an exclusive wellness centre where tranquillity and luxury are the only focus. From the aromatic spa and relaxing sauna to the extensive range of personalised massage and holistic treatments, guests can rest-assured there is something to suit every lifestyle need. For a session with a difference try Saunagus, a method of detox based on alternating high and low temperatures in combinations with specially chosen essential oils.

Den Lille Havfrue
A lovely sight for young and old alike is the slightly smaller than life-size bronze statue of Den Lille Havfrue (The Little Mermaid). Inspired by Hans Christian Anderson’s famous fairy tale, it sits on rocks near the seagoing entrance to the harbour, close to Castellet and the Langelinie cruise piers. To reach her, it’s a lovely walk along the waterfront, passing the royal palace in Amalienborg Plads.

Tivoli Gardens
The Tivoli Gardens have been in existence since 1843; 20 acres of pleasure park and flower garden in the heart of Copenhagen that are somewhat of a Danish symbol. Endowed with a merry, frivolous spirit, the gardens truly shine after dark when over 100,000 softly-glowing fairy lights are switched on, lighting up the thousands of flowers, games, and classic rides which fill its glittering space. You will also find over 20 lovely restaurants, a swan-filled lake and wonderful Chinese-style Pantomime Theatre situated within the grounds.

Copenhagen is the perfect place for boutique-hopping, with a day’s shopping sure to produce a treasure trove of individual fashion pieces and glamorous accessories. The main shopping area is the pedestrianised Strøget which houses all the main brands and the large Illums Bolighus department store which is filled with Danish design classics.

Munthe plus Simonsen
For fabulous shoes, clothing and accessories, the areas of Grønnegade and Ny Adelgade at the far end of Strøget are the best places to explore. Particularly worth a visit is Munthe plus Simonsen, the award winning design-company where Helena Christensen and Crown Princess Mary are said to shop.

Look out for some of Denmark’s leading fashion labels in Day Birger et Mikkleson and Acne Jeans, or for something a little different to take home, discover Cykelmageren, a remarkable store selling exceptional hand-made bikes.

Birger Christensen

Østergade is where you will find one of Copenhagen’s most luxe offerings in the gorgeous Birger Christensen. Featuring collections by all the local and international big-name designers, the store also displays rare clothing items including seal and sable furs from Northern Europe that make it one of Scandinavia’s leading fur stores.

Café Lumskebugten
Café Lumskebugten is brimming with a Danish charm that has been attracting hungry lunchers to its nautically-inspired tavern since 1854. Enjoy a table on the outdoor terrace during summer as you are treated to a slice of traditional Danish fare.
