Nature, sea and beach – you’ll find all of this in Denmark. The best time to travel, if you want the weather to be warm and the days bright, is July to September. The water in the North Sea and Baltic Sea will be warmer then too.
Denmark’s capital of Copenhagen is a children’s paradise. There are petting zoos, many parks and playgrounds, swimming pools and beaches and the famous Christiania bikes where children can ride in the trailer while their parents cycle. You can explore Copenhagen easily by bicycle: this is what most people around here do. Get on and off you go!
The first stage will take you to Amalienborg Castle. This is where the Danish royal family lives. Every lunchtime at 11:30 a.m., the Royal Guard of Rosenborg Castle marches through the city to Amalienborg Castle, where the changing of the guard takes place at 12 noon on the dot provided Queen Margrethe II is at home. If you feel like it, why don’t you accompany the guards on their march through the city? Or you can continue from the Royal Castle to Nyhavn, where historic ships adorn the harbor. Then along the Öresund to the harbor to see “Lille Havfrue”, in English “The Little Mermaid”, the landmark of Copenhagen and almost certainly known to you from the fairy tale of the same name by Hans Christian Andersen.
The Tivoli, the second oldest amusement park in the world, is located right in the heart of Copenhagen. This is the place to be if you like Ferris wheels, rollercoasters, fairytale worlds, dragon boats and many other attractions. Even the largest safari park in Northern Europe is only 1.5 hours from Copenhagen. If Africa is too far away for you, you will find animals from all continents at the Knuthenborg Safari Park. After you’ve experienced the animals, end the day at Småland’s new water playground, Geysire, which are springs that throw water up into the air. It also has water cannons that make for a lot of fun!
By the way: The Barbie Museum in Copenhagen should be an absolute dream for all girls.
