Copenhagen - Orlando / Florida Guide
Florida Guide > Travelling
A cosmopolitan city teeming with café culture, world-class restaurants and history, Copenhagen is also one of the most eco-friendly cities in the world. Design, fashion and architecture are evident in on every street corner and culinary delights ensure the city’s restaurants are abuzz with activities each night.
Considered one of the five most liveable cities in the world, Copenhagen has a tantalising blend of modern and old, which keeps visitors coming back for more. Go between May and August when the long, sunny days are perfect for exploring.
The best way to see Copenhagen is on foot, and most major attractions are within walking distance. One of city’s most endearing landmarks is a sculpture of The Little Mermaid. Inspired by Hans Christian Andersen’s fairy tale, Edvard Eriksen’s sculpture can be seen at Copenhagen Harbour.
Copenhagen’s rich history is exemplified in structures such as Kronborg Castle, just north of the city, which is a must see. Built in the late 1500s, the castle gained fame as the home of Shakespeare’s tragic prince, Hamlet. In the summer months, the castle’s grounds are host to open-air performances of the play.
Tivoli gardens, close to the City Hall, is a popular spot for families. Take a ride on the 100-year-old roller coaster, or enjoy open-air film screenings in the summer, as well as live music every day. On Saturdays a fireworks display is held in the gardens. The fountains, lakes and picnic spots offer idyllic spots to relax.
With so many hot dogs stand all over Copenhagen, it’s not hard to notice locals’ love for sausages. Not only they are super tasty but also a cheap solution to fill hunger while roaming around the city. The most renowned sausage in Denmark is the rød pølse (red sausage) and is usually served inside a fresh bun with ketchup and mustard on top. Aside from the classic hot-dog recipe, stands around Copenhagen now serve many types of sausages, buns, and plenty of ingredients that customers can combine in order to create their own hot dog.
What initially was a Danish farmers’ lunch is now Denmark’s traditional dish, a local favourite delicacy, and served in high-end restaurants. The open-face sandwich consists of a slice of rye bread, fish or meat, vegetables, and sauce on top. Almost every restaurant in Copenhagen serves a variety of Danes’ beloved meal throughout the day.
