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 visit kid-friendly attractions like Tivoli Gardens and The Little Mermaid (Den Lille Havfrue). There's much more to do: appreciate the extensive heritage of Nyhavn, walk around Kongens Have, snap pictures at Cirkelbroen, and step into the grandiose world of Kastellet.

Calgary, Canada to Copenhagen is an approximately 14.5-hour flight. You can also do a combination of flight and train. You'll lose 8 hours traveling from Calgary to Copenhagen due to the time zone difference. Traveling from Calgary in September, expect somewhat warmer with lows of 12°C in Copenhagen. Cap off your sightseeing on the 24th (Tue) early enough to catch the train to Odense.
