Founded in the 10th century as a Viking fishing village, Copenhagen has morphed into the cultural, political, and economic powerhouse of the country.
Step out of Copenhagen to go to Helsingoer and see Kronborg, which is approximately 48 minutes away. Pack the 18th (Wed) with family-friendly diversions at Tivoli Gardens. There's still lots to do: enjoy breathtaking views from Rundetarn, take a leisurely stroll along Nyhavn, appreciate the history behind The Little Mermaid, and see the interesting displays at Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek.

For where to stay, ratings, and tourist information, refer to the Copenhagen trip planning app .
