Copenhagen's Nyhaven, or "New Harbor," is actually steeped in a long heritage. Colorful buildings line the canal and hint at a history of small-vessel traffic. Like many ports, this strip has a salty history, rich with sailors, drinking and Literary exploits. Danish author Hans Christian Andersen made his home in Nyhavn as well. It's cleaned up now and is a lovely place for a stroll.
The houses painted in their different colours were gorgeous. We took a biat trip and saw them from the water which does give you a wonderful view. What did surprise us was how small the street itself was. Most of the houses had some form of advertising on them and right in the middle there was an elaborate "gentleman's club" with photo's of women on the outside. They weren't rude photo's but seemed to help towards spoiling your impression of Nyhavn. Of all the places we visited on Copenhagen this proved to be our least favourite due to it being overcrowded & full of cafe's & restaurant's spoiling the view & atmosphere of the place. There was so much litter in the harbour too - no doubt from us tourists. Glad we saw it but wouldn't rush back.

This historic castle was constructed on three Islands and is surrounded by lake and beautiful Gardens. Frederiksborg Castle has housed The Museum of National History since 1878. A tour through the museum's many beautiful rooms is an encounter with kings, queens, nobles, the bourgeois, events, and epochs, which have all shaped the country's history and development from the Middle Ages to the 21st century. The museum was founded by brewer J.C. Jacobsen, the founder of Carlsberg.
If you are visiting in winter, the castle closes at 3pm. This is due to the lack of daylight. Rooms 1-36 are the best (beginning with the Chapel and ending with the Great Hall. The rooms are lavishly decorated. The castle grounds are impressive and beautiful. Allow an hour to tour the castle. We were rushed through in only 30 minutes because of the early closing time. See the castle first and then tour the grounds. The grounds stay open later. IMPORTANT: You must pay to park here. The parking sign and payment kiosk are not at all obvious. We did not see them upon our arrival and returned to find a 650K/$100 USD ticket on our windshield! The ticket agent sits in the parking lot waiting for tourists not to notice that they have to pay. Don’t forget. It is 20k for 2 hours. Castle Ticket is included on your Copenhagen Card.

The Louisiana Museum of Modern Art collection focuses on contemporary works from 1945 to the present. Works by Pablo Picasso, Jean Dubuffet and Louise Bourgeois are part of the permanent exhibition at this white villa named Louise, after the first (and second and third) wife of the man who commissioned the building.
Although it isn't cheap to get into this museum, it is well worth the expenditure! A great gift shop, amazing views of the ocean both from the Gardens and from inside the museum, amazing special Exhibitions and permanent collections ... I was blissed out the entire time we were there. Only downside: the crowds! They're open late on the weekdays, and you might think of coming around four o'clock one day that they're open then. We're fairly used to the crowds at tourist sights, but it was indeed packed!

This place is apparently very popular amongst locals. We visited it because it's inscribed as a UNESCO world heritage site "Royal par force hunting grounds". This one includes a small castle, a golf course and deer heard roaming around freely. It was a lovely sunny afternoon and it made for a beautiful walk. Wonderful place, we really enjoyed it. Arrived by car, had no problems parking.

The royal burial church of Denmark and a UNESCO world heritage site. Experience a magnificent church and an architectural masterpiece. 1000 Years of Danish history are gathered here under beautifully decorated vaults and in dark crypts. Here 39 kings and queens of Dnemark lie buried. Roskilde Cathedral is just 20 minutes away by train from Copenhagen central station.
Unfortunately I arrived pretty late and had to rush through the Cathedral. Plan enough time to visit, it's huge. Here are many informative panels (English and Danish) which give you an insight of the cathedral's and Denmark's history. A souvenir guide is included in the entry fee.

We loved the advertising about 'free roaming monkeys' (actually lemurs) but from the get go this rather peculiar place grabs you. At the ticket office you are faced with a very busy line of leaf cutter ants marching across a pool of water centimetres from you. As you move from room to room through heavy plastic curtains, you are met by Lemurs, toucans, skin nibbling fish (stick your hands in the tank! Go on I dare you!). And guess what the ants are patiently following you up through the floors... In the night-time zone you are in the same space as the night dwelling animals, just stand a while and you start to see them moving around you, and often very close indeed. From our four year old, 10 year old and 16 year old, up to grumpy old me, we all found something to wonder at. It is in a slightly strange location, but ignore that and let your inner curiosity take over. It is a great place to visit on a rainy day, but better than that it seems to do a better job that many zoos in bringing you closer to animals and bugs in a way that surely represents the wonderful interests of whoever curates it. It is not 'polished', but you hardly notice it. It certainly awakes the 'inner child' in adults, and excites the young rather well. They could have worked on the 'gift shop' as well as they did the exhibits (wormery anyone?) but that is to be a little harsh. Go back again? I rather think we will.

This was the first castle we visited with the children and it was very cool. Even though the day was quite bleak, the visit was well worth the trip and as it was kind of an unplanned visit, once we arrived we were very impressed.
Highlights- the Great Hall, the artwork, the spectacular chapel and for me, the organ in the chapel (that consequently celebrated its 400th year in the chapel this year).

A good place to stave off the cold. The cafe serves delicious hot Danish lunches. With free coffee and salad. How decent!
The library is stunning. There are also two fantastic children Libraries for under 7 and over 7. How clever to split the ages. There's more than just books but hide out areas to read in and dressing up and a music room for the kids.

Kronborg Castle towers above a very narrow promontory between the coasts of Denmark and Sweden. The renaissance castle stands majestically with its spires, towers, columns, sandstone and copper roofs. Kronborg Castle is a magnificent renaissance castle and a designated UNESCO World Heritage Site. This year marks the 400th anniversary of the death of William Shakespeare. Kronborg Castle is marking this occasion by celebrating Shakespeare's immortal play Hamlet with a cocktail of theatrical adventure, drama and festivities in the magnificent halls of the castle.
I know the subject it’s not about the castle itself, but it was really helpful knowing that there were some lockers available for free (small and also for luggages) for those who are just passing by Helsingør and will keep the journey. I asked for lockers at the station and they recommended me to leave the luggage at the 7 eleven on the first floor, but they charge 50 krones per piece and there isn’t even a locker, they just keep it inside a room. I’m glad I didn’t pay for it!!
About the castle, it’s definitely worth it, specially the guided tour through the casemates. Put on a jacket and have fun with the legends of the castle :)
