We got married in Copenhagen, it's one of our other homes and one of our favourite cities. As well as visiting friends and family when we go there, we also like to visit other parts of Seeland, and Copenhagen so the kids stay in touch with their routes; and their viking ;). Here are our top tips.
1. Tivoli - Tivoli is the only theme park I know in the heart of the city. It's amazing and full of rides, experiences, chilling in the gardens and listening to a show. There are several great restaurants. You will not regret going here with the kids.
2. The Blue Planet Aquarium - strangely even open on Danish Christmas which is celebrated on the 24th. So in our house Christmas lasts a longer time 2 days! However, one Christmas we landed and grandad or Far Far needed more time to prepare. We went to the aquarium and the kids loved it, there was so much to see and do.
3. The viking museum. You will need to hire a car but well worth a visit on a good day. There's really cool brunch place near by before you go in, and the museum is full of things to see, do and even dress up. Here you can row a viking boat and make a boat. There's pieces of wood, saws, nails and hammers left there. This becomes a bit of a competition and a great activity with the kids to make your own viking boat that can float.
4. Open sandwiches are a must to try. Eva Davidson is my favourite, which my husband took me to way before we had the kids. I'm not a fan of bread, but Danish bread is just awesome and her sandwiches are like a work of art!
5. There are so many great restaurants, and not just Noma. Tonys is where we had our pre wedding party. We love cheap and cheerful placed too like Sticks and Sushi with the kids, and Lagkagehuset as my husband misses Danish pastries, so much so that he taught himself to make them!
6. With kids I would do the bus tour, as in reality the little mermaid is small. There are so many great places to see: the navy quarters, the queens palace and all the great danish architecture.
7. Time is also worth being spent just chilling out at Nyhavn.
