Today is at leisure to enjoy this beautiful city.
We recommend traveling out to North Sealand to visit Karen Blixen’s home in Rungstedlund and Fredriksborg Castle, built by King Christian IV. Today the castle is the home of the National History Museum and includes an impressive portrait collection –a motley crew of nobility, statesmen and royalty, who between them, ruled and misruled Denmark for centuries.
If you do head to the countryside, another great stop is the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, where the temporary exhibitions usually feature world famous artists such as Miro, Warhol and Hockney.
If you’re interested in Copenhagen’s Jewish heritage, see the Danish Jewish Museum. The small museum casts light on one of the few happy chapters in WWII history; the rescue of 7,000 Danish Jews from Nazi persecution. The most important role of this museum is to document and research Jewish life in Denmark. Designed by Daniel Libeskind, also designer of the Jewish Museum in Berlin, this museum is located in the oldest part of the Royal Library.
If food is your love, don’t miss a visit to Torvehallerne – Copenhagen’s biggest food market. You’ll discover the food, history and architecture of this market dating back to 1889. Taste seasonal produce and locally produced vegetables, fruits and more.
