Check the weather forecast for appropriate dress and outerwear, such as a light rain jacket. Wear comfortable shoes.
In Copenhagen, bicycles outnumber cars, and the Danish people are fast cyclists. Be aware of bicycle traffic at all times and always look in all directions before crossing the street.
Check opening times for Tivoli Gardens online. They aren't open year-round.
Take advantage of the convenience of Copenhagen's many 7-Eleven stores - and Denmark’s relaxed views on open containers - by grabbing necessities for an impromptu picnic in the park or by the waterfront.
Sometimes, kids need a “day off” from “Mom’s museum itineraries.” In Copenhagen, Nyhavn pirate ships will captivate children, as will other city attractions. Start at the Strøget shopping district, where children can discover the Lego flagship store. Branch out to neighboring Strædet and the Latin Quarter, with their antiques and beautiful architecture. After a roam around the nearby canals, head to Nyhavn to ogle pirate ships. Then, head to the Rosenborg Garden, enjoying its green spaces and beauty. Your kids will love the mazes at Hercules Garden. Finally, the piece de resistance: Fun times at Tivoli Gardens, the world’s most popular seasonal amusement park. Kids will enjoy the many rides while parents will appreciate the Tivoli Beer garden. This is the ultimate itinerary for a family trip to Copenhagen.
