48 sunshine hours in Copenhagen

|

 

Copenhagen is an unbelievable treasure when the sun is shining so why not make the most of the good weather. Here is our 48-hour guide to some of Copenhagen’s outdoor attractions.

Day 1

Copenhagen is criss-crossed by a network of canals and waterways and one of the best – and most relaxing – ways to see the city is from the water. GoBoat rents boats out which makes it possible for you sail around in Copenhagen’s harbour and enjoy the city from the water – what better way to start a sunshine day!

At Refshaleøen, you will find “Halvandet” – a beach club where you can play petanque, kayak polo and beach volleyball during the summer (sunshine) season – or just grab a deck chair and enjoy a Sundowner.

When the sun shines in Copenhagen, the perfect transport is a bicycle. Rent a bicycle from the reception desk and enjoy an evening ride to Kastellet (The Citadel), past the Østerport Station and then head for Fælledparken (Copenhagen’s largest park) before continuing past the University Hospital, and then the next landmark is Kongens Have before you reach the hotel.

Day 2

In the Carlsberg Town (what used to be the Carlsberg Brewery), you will find another of Copenhagen’s hidden gems – J.C. Jacobsen’s Garden. J.C. Jacobsen was the founder of Carlsberg and the garden is the perfect spot for quietude and reflection. After enjoying the garden, do not miss the interesting new architecture that has replaced the industrial buildings of the old brewery.

Nammagorium offers unique and specialist guided tours to the gallery life of Frederiksberg. Each tour starts from the rear of Frederiksberg City Hall and takes in six galleries, each with their own focus. The tours also end in Frederiksberg but, as the content of the tour changes with new openings, there is no fixed final point.

Two of the main streets of Frederiksberg are Frederiksberg Allé and Falkoner Allé. Frederiksberg Allé is a broad boulevard running from the Vesterbro district to Frederiksberg and has a lot of interesting, specialist shops. Falkoner Allé, on the other hand, is Frederiksberg’s main shopping thoroughfare with shops and stores of every description.
