• History, shopping combine in Copenhagen

    2013-05-02

    Copenhagen may not be one of the biggest cities in Europe, but the Danish capital has plenty to offer. There is something for everyone, whether you want to explore renowned shopping opportunities or would prefer to walk through beautiful gardens and iconic waterways. Regardless of what your specific travel style entails, there are a few highlights of Copenhagen that you can't miss during your time there.

    Rosenborg Castle
    This stately structure dates back to the early 1600s and was largely used as a royal residence during its first century. In the years since, however, it has developed into a popular tourist draw for a number of reasons. Aside from its impressive stature, the castle houses a wide variety of royal artifacts that make it one of the city's must-see attractions. Among its most memorable features is the Mirror Room, which is well known for having completely reflective walls, floor and ceiling. The grounds surrounding the castle are worth a visit as well. its lush gardens are particularly impressive in their own right, and the property also houses several other buildings, including the Rosenborg Barracks.

    Tivoli Gardens
    Not your typical amusement park, Tivoli Gardens will leave a long lasting impression well after you've headed home from Denmark. Since it opened more than 160 years ago, this large tourist draw has been attracting streams of visitors ever since. Aside from a long list of exciting rides - including a roller coaster that dates back to the early 20th century - Tivoli Garden has a thriving performing arts scene.

    Strøget
    Copenhagen's shopping is among the best in Europe, and nowhere is that more true than at Strøget - Europe's longest pedestrian shopping center. A walk through Strøget will bring you to all the world's biggest designers and department stores. Not only that, you can also make your way through many of the smaller boutiques and shops to get a clearer picture of the shopping scene in Copenhagen. There are several areas in particular that stand out from the rest, including Gammeltorv?, the oldest square in the entire city. A hub of activity since the 1600s, the square offers nearly everything you're looking for in this iconic stretch of roadway.
