Romantic in Copenhagen

Description:

Whether it’s the Little Mermaid or the Snow Queen, stories come alive in the Danish capital. Copenhagen moves along at its own laidback pace, making it the perfect place for a romantic holiday. We recommend couples stay at 71 Nyhavn, an old hotel at the very end of this harbor strip with excellent sea views.

Day 1 - Copenhagen


Bring a picnic basket and dine under the trees in Frederiksberg Have Park, where you can hide out in the Chinese pagoda or try boating on the lake. If the park seems a little crowded, venture into the wilder Søndermarken area and disappear into the atmospheric vaults of Cisternerne’s Museum of Modern Glass Art, where stained glass is certainly not a trend of the past. End the evening in the courtyard of Frederiks Have restaurant, a romantic hideaway just outside the park specializing in Scandinavian cuisine.

Day 2 - Copenhagen


After making reservations for the evening’s dinner cruise with DSB Canal Tours, visit the charming old neighborhood of Christianshavn, with its pretty painted houses perched along the canals. Enjoy a lunch aboard Christianshavns Bådudlejning og café, a café on a canal barge, then continue the maritime theme with a visit to the cute-looking Naval Museum (Orlogsmuseet). Finally, by sure to be waiting at the anchor at the top of Nyhavn at 7pm for the DSB Canal Tours dinner cruise, with food provided by Nyhavn’s Restaurant Gallionen, available on Thursdays only.

Day 3 - Copenhagen


From Nørreport Station, board the no.14 coastal bus which takes around 45 leisurely minutes to travel up the coast to Klampenborg. Take one of the pony and traps that wait along the bridge here for a romantic ride into the forest at Dyrehaven; the lucky ones may catch a glimpse of the deer that run freely through the former royal hunting grounds. Dine in style at the thatched cottage in the woods, Den Gule Cottage (be sure to reserve beforehand).

Day 4 - Copenhagen


From Nørreport Station, take the E-line of the S-train to Hillerød, duration 37 minutes. There are connecting buses (701, 702 or 703) to Frederiksborgs Slot, a spectacularly beautiful castle housing a museum and with a splendid baroque garden that has been compared to France’s Versailles. Enjoy a leisurely lunch in the castle restaurant, Leonora. Returning to Copenhagen, cross Nørreport onto the pedestrian Købmagergade street, to take an evening walk up the Round Tower: there are chamber concerts there at 8.30 throughout the year – check the website for details. For an evening meal, we suggest going Japanese in minimalist sushi restaurant Sakura.
