Founded in the 10th century as a Viking fishing village, Copenhagen has morphed into the cultural, political, and economic powerhouse of the country.
National Museum of Denmark and Nyhavn are good opportunities to explore the local culture. Escape the urban bustle at Copenhagen Zoo and Kalvebod Fælled. When in Copenhagen, make a side trip to see Kronborg Castle in Helsingoer, approximately 48 minutes away. There's still lots to do: examine the collection at Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek, step into the grandiose world of Rosenborg Castle, sample the tasty concoctions at Visit Carlsberg, and steep yourself in history at Christiansborg Palace.
