6. Discover the "Little Amsterdam" of Copenhagen : The district of Cristianshavn, which is referred to as the "Little Amsterdam" because of its many canals, it was actually built in the 17th century based on a complex plan inspired by Amsterdam's grid of canals. It was constructed to protect the city from attack and ease overcrowding within city walls. The peaceful and not touristy neighbourhood is characterized by its charming houses and courtyards. The centre of the area is the Vor Frelsers Kirke (Church of Our Savior), whose 90-metre-high spire could be seen from most parts of the city. Spend an afternoon wandering around the canals, sit at a canalside cafe and watch the real life of the city unfolding in front of your eyes.

8. Amuse yourself like a Dane in Tivoli : In many ways a visit to Tivoli is the absolute Danish experience. It is a characteristic expression of "hygge", the unique type of cosiness that Danes try to create in all aspects of their life. They consider it as one of their national treasures. Like most of Copenhagen's landmarks, Tivoli has royal roots. In 1841 the King commissioned the building of the park as a distraction, a place where people could amuse themselves and forget politics. Situated in the heart of the city, this large park is planted with almost 1.000 trees and over 400.000 flowers. In the park you could find thrill rides, hot dogs, candy floss, ice cream and beers, and everything related to family entertainment. The highlights of the garden include the spectacular Moorish Restaurant Nimb, the Chinese style Peacock Theatre and a pastel-coloured indoor concert hall. Tivoli's mix of escapism, joy and traditionalism will surely win you over and make you feel part of the Danish way of living.
Copenhagen is really the Beauty of the North and a visit there is an unforgettable and colourful experience.
