Well, since I am a travel addict and I plan to travel the world, you’re gonna hear this sentence a lot hahaha, no seriously, Denmark was one of the most places I wanted to visit.
In 2019 I was in a class and there was a paragraph about Denmark and how it tops the rankings as the country with the best quality of life in the world.
I spent 4 days there and it was so amazing that I decided to make a travel guide about it.
This city was beyond what I expected! Its people were so kind and so friendly, the street was so so so clean, and I loved every home decor store I visited- because I have a home decor business I wanted to visit as many stores as I can, and I was amazed at how beautiful the stores were!
On our first day, we visited Strøget, located in the center of town and one of the longest pedestrian shopping streets in Europe. We had breakfast in a beautiful restaurant called Europa, the breakfast was so delicious and the staff was super friendly -like everyone in Copenhagen-, there are also plenty of restaurants and cafes to choose from.
After breakfast we explored the area, they have amazing local and international shops, and we had to do some shopping, who can resist shopping from local stores?
We then visited The Round Tower, which offers magnificent views of the old part of Copenhagen, and you can see the city from above.
The tower is known for its spectacular city views, you can also see the bridge that connects Denmark to Sweden. I recommend buying the ticket online before going there to skip the lines
After that, we headed to City Hall Square, one of the most popular and well-known attractions in Copenhagen, which is 5 min away from the tower.
We visited The National Aquarium, considered Northern Europe’s largest aquarium and home to thousands of animals and 7 million liters of water. We experienced thousands of fishes and sea creatures, it was so fun and we were lucky to watch the mermaid show, I think we enjoyed it more than the children haha.
Then we visited a park next to the aquarium called Tiøren, we were planning to sit there but it was raining pretty heavily, so we took some photos, and had a quick walk, then we thought it was time to call it a day.
We headed to a cozy beautiful city in Sweden called Malmö, it’s half an hour away from Copenhagen.
If you are planning to visit Copenhagen you must go to Malmö. It’s an old, beautiful city that has two squares: the Stortorget, known as the largest square in the city, and Lilla Tore, known as the smallest square, both located in the town hall.
We also visited the Turning Torso which is a futuristic building, it’s considered the tallest building in Scandinavia. The area there was so beautiful, located in front of the sea and surrounded by greens.
We reached Malmö in the morning and got back to Copenhagen in the evening on the same day.
On our last day, we visited one of the major tourist attractions in Copenhagen called The Little Mermaid. The sculpture is displayed on a rock by the waterside at the Langelinie promenade. It is based on a fairy tale in which a mermaid emerges from the depths of the sea after falling in love with a prince, she was forced to leave the human world and return to the sea because the prince didn’t reciprocate.
Then we strolled along the waterfront to the beautiful Nyhavn, it’s one of the top sights to visit in Copenhagen, lined with brightly colored houses and shops, it reminded me so much of Amsterdam. We had lunch at one of the restaurants there where we ate seafood in front of the amazing view.
This was our trip to Copenhagen, I can’t describe how amazing this city was in every detail. I hope this post will inspire you to visit this magical country.
