Main attractions

  • Climb the Rundetårn (The Round tower) in the Købmagergade for a splendid view of the city of Copenhagen.
  • The Latinerkvarteret (Latin Quartier) is a great area for shopping, especially for designer stores and fashion boutiques.
  • A Danish specialty is the flødeboller, a chocolate covered marshmallow treat. You can find them in any supermarket, but they are mouth-watering in the Summerbird Chocolaterie in the Kronsprinsengade.
  • Smørrebrød is the traditional Scandinavian open-face sandwich. Nevertheless, is it much more than a simple sandwich with traditional ingredients like herring, eel, beef, eggs, etc. This makes it one of the best daytime meals.
  • The Botanical Garden in the Øster Farimagsgade has a large collection of plants including a collection of orchids. There is a huge greenhouse with tropical trees and a skywalk.
