Here at Kiwi.com, we love exploring new places, but we also know that sometimes you want to go back to somewhere you’ve already been. Here’s our guide to the 10 most popular airports that Kiwi.com customers fly in and out of
Airport – Kastrup
City – Copenhagen
If you’ve never been …
… Be prepared to be happy! Denmark is always in and around the top positions of those happiest countries surveys, and in Copenhagen they have a capital that does this reputation no harm at all.
Elegant Hanseatic buildings line the boulevards and canals, while new developments have slipped seamlessly into the gaps to create a city that is both forward-looking and modern but also retains a powerful sense of the maritime history that made it such a rich and prosperous city in the first place.
Go for some elegant entertainment
The Tivoli Gardens are the second-oldest amusement park in Europe, and as well as roller-coasters and other rides, there’s an art gallery, a puppet theatre and wild buildings based on architecture from around the world. Oh, and a pirate ship.
Get on your bike
Copenhagen is a cyclist’s heaven. It’s flat, there are plenty of parks and even if you’re not going through greenery, there is such an extensive network of cycle lanes that bicycles actually outnumber residents. If you’re going to spend your time in the city centre there really is no better way to explore. If it’s your type of thing, there are also cycle tours of Copenhagen’s architectural sites.
Discover something fishy
Copenhagen’s new Blue Planet aquarium, located near Amager beach, may not be the largest in the world, but a) it’s a pretty cool piece of architecture, and b) the sheer variety of sea creatures from all around the globe and the quality of the displays and interactive exhibits means it’s a way to keep kids (and bigger kids!) entertained for a good few hours.
If you’ve already been and feel like going back, what about these?
Get coffee the scientific way
The ultimate expression of hipsterdom? Yes, probably. If you’re into your coffee and absurd ways of having it served – and enjoy being scoffed at for asking for milk – this is the place for you. All the coffee is made and served in equipment that looks like it was taken from a secondary school science classroom, and probably was. If coffee served in a beaker and heated with a Bunsen burner sounds good to you head to Kent Kaffee Laboratorium at Norre Farimagsgade 70.
Try a tricky climb
It costs 25 Krone to climb to the top of the tower of the Church of Our Saviour for great views of the city, but it’s not for the unfit of wary. It consists of a mixture of steps, ladders, tight squeezes and crawl spaces.
Browse the beers
Since 1968, a chap called Leif Sonne has been collecting beers. He now has a collection of over 22,000 unopened beer bottles, which is so many they had to be moved to a special cellar near the Carlsberg brewery where they sit to this day.
