Copenhagen's Most Beautiful Area

Expert Pick Family Time Off The Beaten Path Must See

Copenhagen, 2100


This area could be described as the most beautiful in Copenhagen, and stretches from Esplanaden to Lystbådehavnen, the pier of Langelinie and Frihavnen. If you walk along the outer harbour of Copenhagen, you will be able to enjoy a breath of fresh air from Øresund. You will also pass Churchillparken with its English church, Frihedsmuseet (a landmark to World War II), the Gefion Fountain, the statues of Frederik IX and Princess Marie, Langeliniepavillionen restaurant, the Little Mermaid, and the Mylius-Erichsen Monument (to the people who died during the Greenland expedition 1906-07). Last but not least, is Frihavnen, with its warships and huge cruise liners, and recently a new housing and business district. From Langelinie you can see over to Holmen, where the yacht of the Royal Danish family, Dannebrog, usually lies anchored.
