Wondering what to eat? You haven't truly experienced Copenhagen until you've tasted smørrebrød, those delectable open-faced sandwiches that are an edible work of art. And the history? It's like stepping back in time, from the regal splendor of Rosenborg Castle to the free-spirited enclave of Christiania.

Copenhagen's museums are world-class too. Lose yourself in the artworks at SMK or dive into Viking lore at the National Museum. And for a touch of whimsy, don't miss the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek — an art gem in the heart of the city.

Summer in Copenhagen? Pure magic. The city comes alive with festivals, food markets, and boat tours. You can even sunbathe on the decks lining the city's harbor, or jump straight in to cool off.

Traveling with the little ones? Tivoli Gardens is a must, a city center wonderland of rides, gardens, and entertainment. The Experimentarium is another winner, making learning a blast.

So, pack your sense of wonder and get ready to discover the Danish capital like never before with this guide to the very best of Copenhagen.
