Very touristy, but well worth a visit. We enjoyed the hop on hop off Stromma ferries that take you all around the harbours and canals

Thoroughly enjoyed our short visit soaking in the atmosphere and admiring the architecture of days gone by. Went there by the Hop on Hop Off bus. Very convenient mode of transport in Copenhagen to visit all the places of attraction.
