Best Views of Copenhagen

When you have had enough of the bustling and beautiful Copenhagen on street-level, come and climb these vantage points for the best view from up above in Copenhagen. Copenhagen is a city with quite a few spires, towers and other observation decks. Here are some of our favorite spots to visit while in Copenhagen.
Cityscape of Copenhagen, Denmark

The Round Tower ( Rundetarn)

This is the view from what is probably the most famous tower in Copenhagen. The Round Tower is a classic spot to take in a beautiful sunset over the rooftops of the historic city center.

An epic view of Amalienborg, Copenhagen’s inner harbor and the opera house in one. The tower is open all Saturdays and Sundays at 13.00, and each day between June 15 – August 31.

 The tower of Christiansborg Palace

You’ll feel on top of the world when taking in the view from the tower of the Danish Parliament building. Entrance is free, by the way, and the restaurant is highly recommendable.

Standing at a dizzying 90 metres, and with a spiraling walk to the top, this tower is not for the faint of heart. The view from the top is totally worth it, though.

The iconic ZOO Tower from May 1905 is one of the oldest buildings in Copenhagen ZOO. Once you have climbed the 182 steps to the top in the 50-meter-tall tower, you have a wonderful view of Copenhagen’s towers and rooftops.

Guide To Top 10 Danish Traditional Lunches- Go Sandwich!

 

VisitCopenhagen.com has put together a delicious overview of most mouth-watering traditional Danish lunch. If dark rye bread and herring are not your thing, try a delicious Danish-inspired sandwich called Stjerneskuld ( A Shooting Star in English).

Here are some fabulously witty Danishsandwich.com tips for making your Shooting Star Sandwich no matter where in the world you are hungry for some Danish-style lunch.


Easily Denmark’s craziest concept open-faced sandwich, the Shooting Star is both a treat to the eyes and an extravaganza to the taste buds. How can I describe this famous construction? Well, it’s basically a combination of every known fish and seafood topping you find in the common sandwich toolkit – it’s what the average Dane could potentially make with the leftover smørrebrød toppings from a large family gathering – and in fact, that is why I am making this very treat – loads of leftovers!

The concept is based on the 1st cardinal rule of gastrony: that if one yummy thing tastes good, then therefore it stands to reason that five yummy things must taste five times better!

Buttered Danish Rye Bread (Rugbrød)

 

The essential ingredients are the following:

Fried Plaice (or Sole) Filet
Pickled Herring
Smoked or Cured Salmon
Caviar
North Atlantic Shrimp
Optional green stuff: Dill, Lettuce
Lemon Wedge

 

Basically, you pile it all up on the bread, fitting it all as best as possible, not worrying too much about spill over. Then go to town with fork and knife and beer. Decadent! Scrumptious! Awesome! Words can barely describe…

 

Anyway, you shouldn’t take our word for it. Make it yourself and enjoy. However, if you aren’t able to make this yourself, but you happen to be visiting Denmark, here are a few excellent spots where you can find a professional Danish-chef who will gladly make a Stjerneskuld for you. If undecided, let one of our typically Danish friendly and easy-going tour guide give you their locals tips on where to go for a sandwich when taking a break for coffee & sandwich on one of our Copenhagen Tours.
