Copenhagen with kids

Copenhagen with kids
What to see and do in Copenhagen on a sunny day

The route plan: Strøget, Lego shop, Nyhavn, boat trip, Mermaid Statue, Amalienborg, Vor Frelsers Kirke observation deck, Christiania



If the weather is fine, which is not that obvious in Denmark, we suggest walking down the Strøget, one of the Europe's longest pedestrian areas, towards Nyhavn. Nyhavn, the name meaning "new harbor," is one of the most popular and well-photographed tourist attractions in Copenhagen. It looks truly picturesque especially during the golden hour on a sunny afternoon. If you want bird's eye view of Copenhagen, climb to the top deck of Vor Frelsers Kirke (more details below) Don't forget to take your kids to a Lego flagship store. A stone's throw from Nyhavn, you'll find Amalienborg. We also recommend taking the kids on a boat trip to see the main sights and the Mermaid statue from a different perspective.

Copenhagen Card - your guide to smart sightseeing

Why you might need Copenhagen Card


             Copenhagen Card (CC)
  •   CC entitles you to free public transport (bus, underground, train) within defined boundaries. W used it just in the center of Copenhagen, but it covers a larger area. 
  • Two kids 0 - 10 travel for free on condition you buy a CC for yourself. The kids age hasn’t been verified by any document, however, I had the passport of our 9-year old on me just in case. On the bus you show the driver the CC and here you go!
  • CC can be bought at any Tourist Information Center. With CC you'll get a booklet with a list of free and discounted tourist attractions. Show CC at the ticket office/ entrance and you’ll get in for free. Don’t forget to take a public transport map from the Tourist Information Center.
  • Downloading the Copenhagen Card application (electronic version of the booklet) on your mobile will make your life much easier. 
  • Make sure you plan the sightseeing well, so you’ll be able to make the best use of CC. To activate the card all you have to do is to write with a pen the date and time (full hour only) e.g. 15.00 (not 15.15) you want the card to be active. It’s really comfortable because by buying a 3-day CC you may get 4-day sightseeing if you start let’s say at 13.00 , the CC will be active for 72 hours.
