One day in Copenhagen isn’t so much. So we had to choose which places of interest in Copenhagen we wanted to see and choose the most famous places of Copenhagen. We could park the motorhome next to Tivoli and from there walked into the city centre.
We walked from the City Hall through the shopping street Strøget to Nyhavn. After the Little Mermaid the colorful townhouses of Nyhavn probably are the most famous spot in Copenhagen. From Nyhavn we walked along the water to Amalienborg and the Little Mermaid. Interesting is that the Little Mermaid only is a small statue on a rock, but despite that and that it is located out of the city centre, it still is crowded.
On our way back to Nyhavn we shortly visited Frederik’s Church, also known as The Marble Church. From Nyhavn we made a canal tour with DFDS. If you only have one day in Copenhagen or your time is limited then this tour is great, because in less than an hour you see the main places of interest of Copenhagen. Furthermore the view from the water nice, certainly with the great weather we had.
The canal tour also goes through Christiania, the east side of Copenhagen. Most tourists don’t visit this part of the city, but it is an interesting district of Copenhagen. Freetown Christiania was founded by hippies and had a mix of workshops, galleries and eateries. There also is an interesting mix of modern architecture and historical buildings. Next to that many yachts in the canals and the Church of Our Saviour with the famous spiral tower.
Unfortunately a day wasn’t enough for sightseeing in Copenhagen. We saw most of the historical buildings, but time was too limited to visit Tivoli, National Museum and the Round Tower. So I definitely will visit Copenhagen again!
