Tivoli Gardens is one of the oldest amusement parks in the world, having opened in 1843. Not only does Tivoli provide fun amusement rides, but also beautiful gardens, restaurants, daily live music performances and fireworks on Saturdays. Be sure to visit in spring or summer as Tivoli is closed during the winter months, bar Halloween and Christmas.
Visit this indoor market to discover new culinary delicacies and delicious fresh produce.

Perfect for a rainy day, pay a visit to the Danish Design Museum in the very centre of Copenhagen. Recommended for anyone with an interest in design, architecture and arts, the museum exhibits the development of Danish design throughout the 20th Century. Avoid the crowds and visit during their late-night opening hours on Wednesday.
The nicest and most memorable way to explore Copenhagen is undoubtedly on a canal tour. Visit in the summer to explore the city by kayak, available as a single or double. Alternatively, hire a self-drive Go Boat where you can kick back with a beer and snacks and drift around Copenhagen harbour at your own pace. Prices start from £48 for an hour.
Although less renowned than the likes of the Design Museum Danmark and Statens Museum for Kunst, this small museum is a Copenhagen insider’s favourite, featuring more than six modern art exhibitions a year as well as films. In the past, the gallery has showcased the work of fashion heavyweights such as Mario Testino, while the ground-level gift shop sells design posters and many art and design tomes.
