Copenhagen was the first European city I visited. To my fourteen-year-old self, it was absolutely magical. On subsequent trips, I’ve discovered that my adult self agrees with my initial reaction. Here are three things in Copenhagen that will captivate your kids and make them want to return time and time again.
The Little Mermaid
Over the years, The Little Mermaid (Den lille havfrue in Danish), a bronze statue crafted in honor of Denmark’s own Hans Christian Anderson’s famous story, has become the symbol of Copenhagen. You can find the Little Mermaid perched on a rock and (fittingly) surrounded by water in the Langelinie neighborhood, in the northeastern corner of Frederiksstaden. Plan your visit for a sunny day and take advantage of a great photo opportunity. A fun idea would be to read Anderson’s version of the Little Mermaid with your kids on the plane ride over so they know more about the statue when they visit it.
One of the most visited theme parks in Europe, Tivoli Gardens opened in 1843. Unlike ultra-modern amusement parks (think Euro Disney), Tivoli Gardens has preserved much of its historic charm. Kids will enjoy rides, puppet shows, quaint restaurants serving traditional Danish treats, theaters and dance halls. The entry price is reasonable (around $15 USD), but be prepared to pay extra for rides. Tivoli Gardens hosts events year-round--- check out their website to see what will be happening when you’ll be in town.
Kids of all ages will be enchanted by the impressive Rosenberg Castle (Rosenborg Stot in Danish). Located northwest of Frederiksstaden, this Dutch Renaissance castle was built in the early 1600s by King Christian IV. As if the breathtaking architecture wasn’t enough, here you can also view the Crown Jewels as well as other royal collections. Don’t miss the beautiful and serene King's Garden (Kongens Have in Danish). If you’re feeling a bit peckish, head to Café Traktorstedet (located on the castle grounds) for traditional Danish fare. Rosenberg Castle hosts a variety of concerts and special events throughout the year. Be sure to check their website before your trip to see if there are any events you want to catch during your visit to the historic Rosenberg Castle.
