The most popular things to do with kids in Copenhagen
Copenhagen has a treasure trove of experiences for children! We'll guide you to the best of them to make sure you'll be awarded 'parent of the year' by your kids. And the best part of it all is that you might actually have time to relax in the meantime (here's hoping anyways...).
Get up-close with our ancestors
Denmark's National Museum in Copenhagen has exhibitions from the Stone Age, the Viking Age, the Middle Ages, the Renaissance and Modern Danish History. One section, dedicated especially to the very young museum visitor, is The Children’s Museum where you'll be able to try a trip on a Viking ship and much more.
Play on top of the iconic towers of Copenhagen
If you head to Fælledparken, a large park in central Copenhagen, you can mix a bit of (alternative) sightseeing with a lot of fun. Let your kids climb five of the most notable towers of Copenhagen, or take part in some of the towers' interactive plays. In the meantime you can enjoy a cup of coffee (aka. the liquid gold of parenthood) from one of the small coffee carts.
Bring science to life through hands-on exploration
The Experimentarium is a world-class science center in Hellerup, just 6 km north of Central Copenhagen. The science center truly is a celebration of curiosity, dedicated to playful science and offering hours of fun for the entire familiy.
