Denmark - land of 1,000 islands.

The Venice of Denmark - Copenhagen

Translated, the Middle Danish name "Köpmannaehafn" means something like: "Port of the merchants". Copenhagen was first mentioned as a port in 1043.
Today it is the largest city in Denmark with around 1.2 million inhabitants and is also home to the Queen's city residence, Amalienborg Palace. If the royal family is there, the changing of the guards in front of the palace takes place every day at 12 noon.
You can either discover this city on foot - the most important sights are easily accessible on foot, relatively close together in the old town - or you can take a city tour by bus.

There are of course countless museums and churches to discover, three other castles, countless squares and well-known streets.

A canal tour with the Netto boat or with the Copenhagen Water Taxi, the light blue “flying fish”, are original alternatives. A visit to Tivolis with midnight fireworks (Wednesday and Saturday) is certainly an essential part of a visit to Copenhagen for many.

And the “Little Mermaid” based on the example of the fairy tale of the same name by Hans Christian Andersen as one of the smallest landmarks in the world with a height of only 125 cm should definitely also be recorded digitally. Copenhageners love the melancholy mermaid on her stone at the harbor, where she has been sitting since 1913. (Sculptor Edvard Eriksen)

The Latin Quarter with its trendy cafes, small music and clothing stores and shops for extravagant items far away from the mainstream is also worth a visit.

What is not in travel guides, where the best clubs, best insider bars and places are valued by the locals, has recently been found on the city blog “Spottes by Locals” of a travel-loving couple.
