Founded in the 10th century as a Viking fishing village, Copenhagen has morphed into the cultural, political, and economic powerhouse of the country.
Get in touch with nature at Stevns Klint and Van Dijks Adventure. Do some cultural sightseeing at Nyhavn and Rosenborg Castle. Step out of Copenhagen to go to Hillerod and see Frederiksborg Castle, which is approximately 38 minutes away. There's still lots to do: examine the collection at National Museum of Denmark, take a stroll through Stroeget, explore the galleries of Amalienborg, and identify plant and animal life at Kalvebod Fælled.

Plan my day in Copenhagen using traveler tips and tourist information provided by Inspirock.

If you are flying in from Portugal, the closest major airport is Copenhagen Kastrup Airport. In August, daytime highs in Copenhagen are 25°C, while nighttime lows are 14°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 24th (Sat) to allow time to take a train 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.
Let the collections at Den Gamle By and Moesgaard Museum capture your imagination. Get outdoors at Aarslev Engso and Pergolaen ved at the Town Hall. And it doesn't end there: hike along Brabrandstien, steep yourself in history at Vor Frue Kirke, take a stroll through Mathilde Fibigers Have, and make a trip to Stroeget.
