Copenhagen is a huge cultural center of the world, and by "giant" we do not mean its size, but the immense influence it has on culture. Here you can see the best works of art and design from all periods. The Danes managed to collect the best pieces of art and design over time, but they did not keep them only for decoration, but they were inspired and passed them through their own vision, to perfect them. A lot of fashion, art and product design trends start in Copenhagen.

There are countless places to see and sights to visit in this city. You can start exploring Rosenborg Slot, a beautiful medieval castle set right in the city center. Within walking distance, you will find Nyhavn, a small canal surrounded by old houses, painted in bright colors, which over time have attracted and inspired great artists, including Hans Christian Andersen, who lived right here. Another great place to relax is Frederiksberg Have, the most beautiful and romantic park in town. If you want to have fun during the day, go to Tivoli Gardens, an amusement park where you will find roller coasters, carnival games, shows and fireworks. Copenhagen has some very valuable and impressive museums, so we advise you to visit as many as possible.

Although Danish food is not the most popular in the world, in Copenhagen we find a very impressive selection of Michelin-starred restaurants, which serve extremely tasty international dishes, but where the price is high. The good news is that you can eat almost any international dish you want, the food being very good in any restaurant. For a quick snack, don't hesitate to try one of the many hot dog caravans, a recipe that the Danes have perfected over time, adding new toppings that you wouldn't expect.

When to visit Billund

The weather in Denmark is not the friendliest, but fortunately you have a lot to see here even in the cold season. Of course, the best time to visit Denmark is late spring and summer, between May and August, when temperatures rise and the streets are filled with people looking for fun. Also then is the season of outdoor events, with great chances to find many concerts and street performances. But summer also comes with higher rates for flights and accommodation, so if you want to spend as little as possible you can plan your vacation between March and May, when the temperatures are good for walks. Starting with October, the city goes into hibernation, except for the winter holidays, when everything comes to life for a few weeks.
