26. The Christianshavn Neighborhood

Like the famous Nyhavn neighborhood, but with less tourists.

27. Christiania

This self-declared autonomous anarchist region (complete with its own flag) will feel like another universe. Explaining Christiania would require a post of its own, but this video does a great job of explaining the commune.

To get to 28-30, take the subway to Frederiksborg Station, which is adorable.

28. Frederiksborg Garden

The perfect place to relax with a picnic lunch. While you’re in the park, be sure to check out the Chinese summerhouse and bridge, the Apis Temple, the Swiss Cottage, the Pheasntry, the Elephant viewpoint, and the Pacifier tree, where children can tie their old pacifiers (or iphones) and leave a sentimental note.


29. Frederiksborg Castle

  • October – March: 10:00 am – 3:00 pm
  • April – September: 10:00 am – 5:00 pm
  • 75DKK Adults/60DKK Students

Don’t be that person who goes to the Frederiksborg Garden, sees the awe-inspiring castle, and thinks “ehh, it’s probably not worth going inside.”

30. The Cisterns

  • Closed December – February
  • 50DKK Adults/40DKK Students

This massive underground former reservoir is like a cave and a cathedral had a baby together.
