3 must-see hop-off attractions
Whether you’re short on time or just don’t know what you should see in Copenhagen, we’ve got you covered. Read on to discover our 3 must-see attractions in the Danish capital. Nyhavn, or New Harbour in English, is actually quite an old part of town. Flanked by colourful 17th century buildings, it’s a great place to have a drink and watch the old wooden boats bobbing up and down in the picturesque harbour. Famous Danish author Hans Christian Anderson lived in the area at different times, and the houses where he lived are all marked with plaques. Hop off the bus to discover perhaps Copenhagen’s most famous landmark – the Little Mermaid Statue. Inspired by Anderson’s famous fairytale, she sits perched on a rock in the harbour and should not be missed. Finally, hop off and explore the alternative Christiania district. Established by squatters on the site of an abandoned military base in 1971, residents have created their own alternative community. Filled with restaurants, bars, workshops and music venues, it’s worth a visit, but be aware that marijuana use is prominent in the “Green Light District”.
