Top 10 Family Attractions in Copenhagen

1. National Museum of Science and Technology


Get the answers to all your questions about electricity, cars, airplanes, old crafts, patents, computers and lots more! Discover the direction technology is leading our society. The National Museum of Science and Technology occupies some 8,000 square metres in the southern part of Helsingør (Elsinore) together with Denmark's Flight Museum and Traffic Museum. It is a family experience at full speed. See for example Denmark's first computer DASK, try a flight simulator, play pilot in a Starfighter jet fighter and see Dane Ellehammer's famous airplane from 1906 - the DC 3 which was the first engine operated airplane that could actually fly.

The Zoological Museum, where you can touch a seal, fox, badger, hare, squirrel and many more. But watch your fingers when you touch the hedgehog! Normally you are not allowed to touch the animals at the Zoological Museum, but the museum has set out some stuffed animals for the kids to get into close encounter with. Remember to use the assignments to go animal hunting around the museum, and get answers to your questions from the museum officials.


2. Experimentarium


Experimentarium is the place where science and technology is tangible. Kids are not only permitted, but expected, to touch and use the exhibitions. Hours of playing, experimenting, learning and experiencing are waiting ahead. The Children's Puddle tells stories of water, ships, pumps and locks, and focus is on playing. The kids can sail a ship up the stream through the locks, pump up the water like granddad did back home on the farm and build a bridge. In the Children's Pavilion the three - six year-olds can dance out lights and sounds in the fairytale room the Poppy Forest, use a big crane to build a house and see themselves stand on the head in a mirror.

3. The Tycho Brahe Planetarium's


The Tycho Brahe Planetarium's permanent exhibition about astronomy and space travel is for everyone in the family who wants to learn about moonwalks, the solar system and space research. You can also experience the Planetarium's IMAX Theatre with 240 seats. The 1,000 square metre dome-shaped screen surrounds the audience so you and the kids get a feeling of being part of the on-screen action. Lean back and travel below the sea, out in space or on dangerous expeditions into the jungle.

4. Tivoli


Georg Carstensen's old garden is hard to ignore when kids are involved. Take them on the new children's ride Nautilus, the Bumper Cars and the Vintage Cars. For the brave kids the Demon, the Golden Tower, the Star Flyer and the Roller Coaster are popular thrills. The good Tivoli atmosphere - with a little assistance from the Pantomime Theatre and the Tivoli Boys Guard - will never disappoint you. Tivoli is open from April to September, for Halloween in Oct. and for Christmas.

5. Bakken


"Pierrot, Pierrot, come on out", the kids are shouting in front of the little green house. Throughout the summer season you can watch the traditional pantomime figure Pierrot (originating from the Italian Commedia dell'arte) working his magic and telling funny stories in front of his house in the world's oldest amusement park in Dyrehaven in Klampenborg, north of Copenhagen. Apart from Pierrot, there are the many rides, like the Mine Train Wolf, the Octopus, the Hullabaloo and the Ladybird. You can even meet Bakken's Mr. Deer, Peter Hedgehog, Robert Fox and Earl Badger when they perform every day on the Open Air Stage. Take the kids to the forest, have a picnic and enjoy Danish folksiness at its very best.

6. Fælledparken


Fælledparken is best known for its May 1st meetings and speeches. But there is more to it, like a paddling pool, lots of room for picnics and ball games, a petanque course, a football field, a giant chessboard, a stage, a cafe and a fun traffic playground with real traffic lights and road signs for the kids. There is also the 4,000 square metre Sense Garden behind Trianglens post office with sculptures that you can touch, a fountain and an alphabet labyrinth which all appeal to the kids' imagination.

7. Amalienborg Castle


It is where Queen Margrethe lives most of the year. Every day at noon you can witness the change of the Royal Guard. And when the Queen is at home it is accompanied by music. Check if the flag is up on Christian IX's palace, which is situated to the right when you face Amaliehaven (Amalie Garden). If the flag is flying, the Queen is at home.

8. Christiansborg Palace


Slotsholmen is merely a small island in the heart of Copenhagen which many people do not even realise is an island. On it you will find Christiansborg Palace, which houses the Danish Parliament, the Prime Minister's Office and the Supreme Court. The Royal Reception Rooms in the palace's north wing, the palace church and most of the Riding Ground Complex are available to the Royal Family. If you ask the kids, however, what lies beneath the palace is probably more exciting; the ruins of Bishop Absalon's fortress and Copenhagen Castle.

9. Øresund Aquarium


What goes on at the bottom of Øresund, the sound between Sweden and Denmark? Get the answer to that question by visiting the Øresund Aquarium in Elsinore (Helsingør). Here, it is possible to get an insight into the fantastic - and to most people completely unknown - underwater world which unfolds at the bottom of the seas surrounding us. You can find reconstructions of the bottom of Øresund, and in the children's aquarium you are permitted to touch for example sea anemones, sea urchin, crabs and various fish. During weekdays you can also see the animals get fed.

10. At Denmark's Aquarium in Charlottenlund


At Denmark's Aquarium in Charlottenlund, north of Copenhagen you can meet plenty of underwater life. The 300 colourful fish and odd aquatic animals stems from all over the globe. There are funny fish, teethy sharks, electric eels and eight-armed octopus. Also meet the piranha that will flense anything in less than a second. In the basement of the aquarium kids can touch some of the aquatic animals during weekends and holidays. You can also see the fish get fed every weekend and the daily feeding during the summer holidays.
