Originally a Viking fishing village founded in the 10th century, the Danish capital boasts over 850 years of history. You will have an entire day to explore. Walk past the brightly colored houses of Nyhavn, or New Harbor, once the home of Hans Christian Andersen. See the city’s tribute to the author at the Little Mermaid statue and the famed Tivoli Gardens, entertaining children of all ages since 1843. Discover the sumptuously rococo interiors of Amalienborg Palace, the winter residence of the Danish Royal Family. You may also want to consider a trip to the ornate Kronborg Castle, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and the inspirational setting of Shakespeare’s Hamlet. This fairy-tale city provides plenty to explore, including delights for your palate at one of the many Michelin-starred restaurants, where you can indulge in a decadent lunch or an early dinner.
