Things to do in Copenhagen with kids

Copenhagen for kids

Copenhagen is a great city to explore with children. It’s not too big, it’s relaxed and many attractions and services offer that little bit extra for kids. Here are some tips and inspiration to help you plan a family break to the fun-filled Danish capital.

Canal boat

Get to know the city

If this is your first time to Copenhagen, a bus tour is a great way to get to know its streets and sights and kids love seeing the city from the top of a big double-decker. Or why not head down to the canal for a boat tour of the inner city, its canals and harbour?

Harbour bus

Create your own Copenhagen tour

It’s also possible to create your own sightseeing tour which fits your family by combining a 24-hour public transport ticket, valid on bus, train and metro throughout the city, with a harbour ferry ticket. Remember too that a paying adult can take two children under 12 years of age with them for free.
