Vacation rentals in Copenhagen
There is hardly a city in Denmark where Danish tradition and cosmopolitan life come together in such a diverse way as in Copenhagen. As a result, you will find a wide variety of holiday accommodations in at least as different neighbourhoods. You love the sea? Then a holiday apartment in the districts of Arhusgadekvarter and Osterbro located directly at the harbour is exactly what you are looking for.
Or should it be a little quieter? How about a Scandinavian-style villa on the shores of Lake Damhusee or in the tranquil Amager Vest district? However, the largest offer of accommodation is in the pulsating centre. Settle down in a holiday apartment or an apartment around the city fortress and the central city park and benefit from the walking distance to sights such as the Tivoli leisure park and the countless museums, restaurants and bars.
Holidays in Copenhagen
Travelers and Activities
No matter whether opera, ballet, amusement parks, museums or historical sights. Copenhagen has something for every taste. Start from your vacation rental and explore the Church of Our Lady, Rosenborg Castle and Christiansborg Castle, now the seat of the Danish Parliament. While lovers of excellent stage performances can also look forward to an unforgettable evening in the Mermaid Theatre, the Copenhagen Concert Hall or the Royal Theatre, young visitors in particular will get their money's worth on the grounds of the Tivoli theme park.
Also for big children's eyes there are trips to the Copenhagen Zoo as well as to Legoland in Billund, which is easily accessible by car from Copenhagen. The family holiday is rounded off by a colourful potpourri of exhibitions and museums. The spectrum ranges from the Danmark Design Museum and the Geological Museum to the National Museum and a guided tour through the Carlsberg Brewery to child-friendly highlights such as the Tycho Brahe Planetarium and the "Eksperimentarium" interactive museum, where you can experience science together with your offspring.
Things to know
The programme of events in Copenhagen is at least as varied as the range and museums. It all starts in spring with the ten-day Natfilm Festival in March and the celebrated birthday of Queen Margarethe II, who waves from the balcony of Amalienburg Castle to celebrate the day. We continue with the Wonderful Copenhagen Marathon and the Pinsekarneval at Whitsun, when colourful parades move through the streets and rock, jazz and blues bands give their best in the parks. Speaking of rock.
At the end of July, the Roskilde Festival will be a top-class event with 200 international rock bands heating up tens of thousands of visitors from all over Europe on four festival days. Also well worth a visit are the Copenhagen Jazz Festival in July, the Golden Days Festival in September and the Culture Night in October, where museums, cinemas and art galleries open their doors to visitors at night.Best travel time
A city as diverse as Copenhagen is certainly worth a visit at any time of the year, especially as the numerous Christmas markets create a very special atmosphere even in deep December. Nevertheless, sightseeing tours in sunshine are the most beautiful. Therefore, the best time to book your vacation rental is between the beginning of May and the end of September. Those who have nothing against one or the other drop from above, can also use the low season in April and October for exploration tours.
The harbour in Copenhagen is so clean that theoretically one could swim in it.
Top 5 travel tips
Of course, the Little Mermaid. The sculpture represents a graceful mermaid sitting on a mighty stone and was inaugurated in 1913 by its sculptor Edvard Eriksen. The lovely bronze figure is based on the main character of the fairy tale of the same name by the most famous Danish poet Hans Christian Andersen and is located directly on the waterfront promenade, not far from Amalienborg Castle. So these two highlights can be wonderfully combined with a promenade walk. Apartments are a clear advantage for city breaks: You can reach almost all the sights on foot and experience the urban life of Denmark.2nd promenade at Nyhaven
The new harbour is not only an important mooring for the city, but also an exciting promenade. The brightly coloured gabled houses surrounding the harbour are home to a variety of cafés, restaurants, pubs and dance halls. Larded with sailing ships, boats and seagulls, a maritime flair is guaranteed to come up at this location. Hans Christian Andersen was once one of the inhabitants of Nyhaven. No wonder, because due to the good location you can reach all important points of the city from here. You too can trouble Holidu's offer and find your perfect vacation rental in Copenhagen or your perfect holiday home.3. The Tivoli amusement park
The amusement park with its roller coasters and rides is located in the centre of Copenhagen. The 8-hectare site also houses restaurants, flower gardens, a lake, a concert hall and many other highlights. Interesting events such as concerts, parades, fireworks or exhibitions take place there regularly. The entrance area alone is already worth seeing because the brick buildings with their large gate and dome give the impression of being in the 19th century.4. Surroundings of Copenhagen
The Swedish town of Malmö is just a stone's throw away. Sweden can be reached in less than an hour via the Öresund Bridge (also a tourist attraction). Public transport offers hourly bus connections, so you can take a day trip to the southern Swedish town in Skåne province. Malmö not only scores with its castle and gardens, but also with its landmark, the curved Wolkenkrazer Turning Torso.5. The locks
Anyone planning a city trip to Copenhagen should not miss the castles. Christiansborg is not only the seat of the three Danish authorities, but is also centrally located in the old town. The above mentioned Amalienborg offers a real spectacle at noon with the daily changing of the guard. Rosenborg Castle is located in the Königsgarten and offers a beautiful and well-kept castle park.
