Founded in the 10th century as a Viking fishing village, Copenhagen has morphed into the cultural, political, and economic powerhouse of the country.
You'll explore and learn at Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek and The Hirschsprung Collection (Den Hirschsprungske Samling). Your cultural itinerary includes sights like Nyhavn and Stroeget. Step out of Copenhagen to go to Store Heddinge and see Stevns Klint, which is approximately 56 minutes away. And it doesn't end there: get engrossed in the history at National Museum of Denmark, get impressive views of Van Dijks Adventure, take in the architecture and atmosphere at Frederiks Kirke (Marmorkirken), and take in panoramic vistas at Rundetarn.

For more things to do, maps, and more tourist information, you can read our Copenhagen online trip itinerary builder.

Lagos, Nigeria to Copenhagen is an approximately 16- hour flight. Plan for colder temperatures traveling from Lagos in October, with highs in Copenhagen at 15°C and lows at 9°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 7th (Mon) to allow enough time to drive to Aarhus.

Located on the sea, Aarhus blends a world city with a small-town feel. Home to a young population, the city has a reputation for producing internationally known pop and rock musicians.
Escape the urban bustle at Aarslev Engso and Brabrandstien. Take a break from Aarhus with a short trip to Kyst- og Fjordcentret in Oersted, about 52 minutes away. The adventure continues: tee off at Aarhus Aadal Golf Club, delve into the lush surroundings at Moesgard Forrest, and get outside with Den Permanente.

In October, daily temperatures in Aarhus can reach 15°C, while at night they dip to 8°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 11th (Fri) early enough to travel back home.
