Copenhagen Classics

These really are the most-visited attractions in the capital of Denmark. Three of Copenhagen's beloved and most-famous attractions that we all just can't get enough of.

A 1000-year-old Viking Kingdom

Royal families don't get much older than this. Queen Margrethe II is descended from Viking kings, who ruled Denmark a thousand years ago. When you're here, you can explore everything the Vikings left behind and maybe even bump into our current royal family.

Everyone's welcome!

Denmark was the first country in the world to legally recognise same-sex couples, and we're proud of our traditions of tolerance, equality and respect. 

Our biggest natural wonders

Size matters. So we've picked Denmark's three biggest and most-dramatic natural attractions to start with. Giant disappearing lighthouses. Rugged white cliffs. And, you might be surprised to hear, some of the biggest beaches in Europe!

How Denmark invented fun

OK, we didn't actually invent fun. But now you're reading this... we are responsible for some enormous contributions to the world of play and make-believe. Can you guess what they are?

Destination Spotlight: Zealand and the Danish Riviera

With names like The Danish Riviera and The Cold Caribbean, you can probably guess that Zealand is the kind of island where Danes go to relax and unwind. And the good news? Copenhagen is actually on it anyway!

We'll just squeeze a few more famous sights before you go...
