Copenhagen - art, canals and pubs

From Danish design to a delicacy like smørrebrød...

Blue-blooded. You’ll feel like a king or queen...

...when you take a boat trip down the canals of the Øresund. Celebrities can soon be seen: The Little Mermaid, the symbol of Copenhagen, greets you quietly and kindly from her island of stone. The city’s castles and palaces exude a regal air, and the well-known Tivoli Gardens offer high-quality fun and plenty of room for recreation.

Fashionistas like to take their heels for a walk down Strøget shopping street. Back at the waterside, it’s time to sample the culinary delights of the famous Nyhavn – including seeing and being seen there.

Enjoy the beach in the middle of the city. The Amager Strand is Copenhagen’s newest beach experience, direct on the Øresund. The recreation area includes the beach on Amager Strandvej street, a lagoon, an island and the 10-øren and 5-øren parks.

The island is two kilometres long, the lagoon is 400 metres across at its widest point – which means a total of 4.6 kilometres of bathing beaches and plenty of room for any amount of seaside fun and activities:

Route Name of train Bicycle carriage
