SEE Royal life of the past and present at the Amalienborg Museum. It is considered one of the greatest works of Danish Rococo architecture. Catch the changing of the guard, where they march from their barracks to Amalienborg. Other castles of interest include Rosenborg Castle, which houses royal art treasures, the Crown Jewels and Royal Regalia; and Kronborg Castle, one of northern Europe’s finest Renaissance castles, famous worldwide from Shakespeare’s Hamlet.

DO Just a short distance from Copenhagen Central Station, a visit to the famous Tivoli Gardens is a must! With its lush gardens and rides to match the exotic architecture, this amusement park is for both young and old. Hop on a train to Frederikssund for the opportunity to experience the life of a viking at the Viking Village. The settlement consists of five pit houses that are historically accurate along with a 25 meter longhouse that served as permanent housing for the Vikings.

SHOP When you think Copenhagen, you think Danish designs. Minimalist approach, functional, inspired by nature and the northern climate. What’s there not to love? Izabel Camille makes beautiful jewellery that really captures the Nordic essence. Or get yourself to Stroget shopping street to brand browse the likes of Sand Copenhagen and Mads Nørgaard.

STAY Antiques, linen from Geismar, B&O BeoVision 10 TV, BeoSound 8 iPod docking station and BeoCom 5 telephone are some of the delicious offerings that make Nimb Hotel the choice stay in the city. All the rooms (except three) have open fireplaces with birch wood while some overlooking the charming Tivoli Gardens. With just 17 uniquely decorated suites, it’s best to book early especially during high season.
