Family friendly travelling in Copenhagen

Most popular areas in Copenhagen for family-friendly hotels

With its historic theme park slap-bang in the center of the city, as well as the colorful townhouses and winding canals, Copenhagen has almost been tailor-made to delight children and adults alike. There are certainly plenty of family-friendly hotels on offer, whether you want to stay in the very center, close to Tivoli Gardens, or would prefer to be amid the pastel shades of historic Nyhavn – once home to Hans Christian Andersen – or up-market Frederiksberg, which offers a genteel, village-like atmosphere of its own.

Top family-friendly hotels in Copenhagen

Many families will make a beeline for Tivoli Gardens when in Copenhagen, and the Tivoli Hotel is the perfect base for exploring this sprawling green oasis. The guestrooms have also been designed with younger visitors in mind, featuring quirky, colorful decor. Meanwhile, Skt. Petri is a sleek, deluxe pad offering views across the city and 2 on-site restaurants, which is rather convenient if you want to eat with your clan and not have to worry about trudging home after. Speaking of food, the Imperial Hotel is another family-friendly favorite with a tempting on-site Italian eatery.

Where to find the best restaurants in Copenhagen

Whether you want to go somewhere fancy for an evening, or just want to grab a bite on the go, Copenhagen has you covered. The city center and Christianshavn are noted for elegant eateries serving New Nordic cuisine – think foraged herbs and local meats, artfully arranged on the plate. But there’s also the casual grub of the Norrebro district to tempt you, ranging from succulent shawarma wraps to juicy burgers. Kids will also love the sights and smells of the food stalls on Paper Island.

The most popular things to do in Copenhagen

Perhaps the most iconic landmark in Copenhagen is the Little Mermaid statue, and it’s a must-see, especially if you have kids in tow. The bronze sculpture is elegantly draped on a rock on the Langelinie Promenade. Almost as famous is Tivoli Gardens, which makes up a vast swathe of Copenhagen’s core, and is home to one of the oldest theme parks in the world. Here, you can enjoy exhilarating rollercoasters and other thrill rides, before taking a relaxing amble amid the lush greenery. Speaking of the outdoors, be sure to head over to Amager Beach Park, especially if the sun is beating down. Here, there’s a languid lagoon, sandy shorelines, and pools for kids to splash around in. Copenhagen Zoo is another top family attraction, being home to basking hippos, cunning crocodiles, and majestic elephants.

Best ways to get around Copenhagen

This is a city that should be explored on foot as much as possible. In fact, it’s entirely possible to enjoy your whole stay here without once setting foot on public transport. That said, sometimes it can come in handy, especially if little legs get tired. So just hop on board one of the buses, or – for a really speedy service – try the metro trains, which run all day and all night, and come every few minutes. Harbor buses also make for an enjoyable way to see the canals.
