Wonderful, Wonderful, Copenhagen

Copenhagen, or Kobenhavn to give it its Danish name, was a fishing village until Bishop Absalon secured it in 1167.

In 1443, the city was chosen as the capital of Denmark, and it remains so today.

Although it withstood a siege by the Swedes in 1658-1659, Copenhagen suffered great damage and the Danish navy was destroyed, by the British fleet during the Napoleonic wars, in 1801 and 1807.

Hans Christian Andersen made Copenhagen his home. To honour him, Copenhagen erected a bronze statue of the Little Mermaid at the harbour's entrance, in 1913.

Copenhagen Attractions

The main part of Copenhagen is on the eastern coast of Sjaelland Island.

The main pedestrian street is Stroget, about 1,080 meters long.

The Royal Palace - Amalienborg - is northeast of the main square, Kongen Nytorv, while the government buildings are mainly to the south (at Christiansborg, home of the parliament, and in surrounding buildings of Holmen, which contain most government offices).

Royal Copenhagen is also known for its fine porcelain.

Most visitors to Copenhagen head for the Tivoli Gardens. More than just a large flower garden, there are cafes, restaurants, open-air theatres, and an amusement park.

You will probably want to take a tour of the Carlsberg Brewery, to see how they make the famous Danish beverage.

Why not view the old city from the 300 year-old Round Tower.

Copenhagen Travel Tips

A canal tour, leaving from Nyhavn is a good way to view the city of Copenhagen, and see the famous statue of the Little Mermaid from the water.

A tour of Rosenborg castle (and the surrounding Royal Gardens) explores Royal history and the crown jewels. One can also tour the Amalienborg palace (home of the Royal family) as well as Christiansborg (both for the parliament, the royal reception rooms, and the remnants of Bishop Absalon's original castle, which lay beneath the current structure.

It should also be noted that Roskilde Domkirke (where most Danish kings and queens are buried) and Kronborg (the castle in Helsingor (Elsinore), made famous by Shakepeare's Hamlet) are listed as World Heritage sites by UNESCO.

Copenhagen Museums

The National Museum portrays the history of the Danes.

Fine art museums include the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek, and the Royal Museum of Fine Art.

The Vikingship Museum, and the Cathedral where the Danish Kings and Queens are buried, are half an hour away from Copenhagen, in Roskilde.

Danish Ancestry

My Danish Roots:
When inquiring into family history it is a great help to have a basic knowledge about surnames in Denmark, both meaning and origin, as well as the Danish naming traditions.

Most place names in the historic Denmark are very old, revealing clues to the Old Norse language and to a large group of personal names.

Outside Copenhagen

Legoland is on Jutland.

An hour away from Copenhagen, you can visit the Kronborg, and Frederiksborg Castle.

And of course, Sweden is only a short train ride away from Copenhagen airport.

Destination Bornholm:
This cliff-island in the Baltic has Denmark's two biggest waterfalls and one of the country's highest hills.


Aarhus is Denmark's second biggest city, where everything really is within walking distance. A vibrant mix of youthful energy and a blast from the past makes Aarhus a city with an energetic beat of the pulse.

Visit Aarhus.
