How to see the best pieces of architecture in Copenhagen?
The best way to have the overview throughout the new and old build, is to take a bus-boat along the canal in central Copenhagen. Trips are included in all kind of the tickets, which are valid for zone 1 & 2. When you arrive to Copenhagen for a weekend or max. of 5 days, it is good to by Copenhagen Card – in the price there are included: transportation for unlimited number of trips in the area of the Greater Copenhagen (you can visit Roskilde, Hundested, Gilleleje, Hillerød, Helsingør and other towns on the island), entrances to the best and most recommended museums (once for every 24 hours) and discounts for restaurants and entertainment.
Best stop to begin the trip is Nordre Toldbod, you can get there on foot from Østerport station, by going through the park to the left. I recommend to take a boat, when the sun is shining or there isn’t much wind. A round trip takes more than an hour.
