A little gem with lots of love, blood and sweat put into it. Do pay a visit if you can. After your visit, if you see the lady with her stall, making nuttela pancakes, stop and enjoy that too. In short, well worth a visit.

This museum is full of story of Copenhagen since the time of city gates and walls. Some interesting stories include the things they found underground while digging for the metro-line, which tell you a lot about the old time. You can also find the story...More

This museum looks at the idea of the identity of the city and what it means to be a "Copenhagener" in the past, present, and looking towards the future. The exhibits are carefully constructed to look at this identity, and although the themes are somewhat...More

Indre By (Inner City)
This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its
blend of charming old buildings and bold new
architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well
as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner
city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which
consists of three buildings, two of which are new and
situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and
venues of the inner city and its surrounding

Stay in Vesterbro or Indre By? (4 Replies)
Hi, We are visiting copenhagen for the first time in a few weeks and staying for 4 nights. We have found few great housing options. I am hoping some of you can help us decide which area might be better for us. The majority of the places we have found are either in Indre By, closer to Rosenborg Castle Garden, or in Vesterbro, closer to the Museum of Copenhagen or Kodbyen. We are both in mid-20s and live in New York City. We would like to see the sites but would more like to enjoy the life...More

advice/feedback regarding attractions (4 Replies)
I did a search here before I posted, but some attractions are apparently not popular (?). As an example, I didn’t get any search results for the zoological museum. So I wanted to ask for advice/feedback. As I have plenty of time (2 weeks), I don’t need to cram in a lot in a few days. Some days are still unplanned. At the moment, I want to see and do following things. Would you recommend all mentioned places and attractions? Should I add something, or delete something from my list? ...More

You should visit Carlsberg area. Not for the sake of beer, but because it is a hidden pearl in Copenhagen. You din't have to visit the brewery, but take a walk around the Elephant port, you can google it and see how amazing it is). I live next to it and I am so happy about it. On the same visit you can take to Sondermarken (maybe visit Cisternerne if open) and from there cross the street towards Frederiksberg Castle and take a walk through the park, then walk through Frederiksberg Allee to...More
