Wonderful Copenhagen | Private jet charter
Copenhagen, Denmark’s beautiful capital, is located on its two coastal islands of Zealand and Amager. As well as its surrounding canal and coastal landscapes, the city has a vibrant café culture, and a beautiful historic centre to explore. Here are 5 reasons to hire a private jet to Copenhagen:
The second-oldest amusement park in the world, Copenhagen’s Tivoli Gardens are located in the city centre, near City Hall. Dating from 1843, Tivoli’s pleasure gardens now include a digital virtual reality experience known as The Demon, where rollercoaster passengers are taken through a Chinese fire-dragon universe. Tivoli has beautiful gardens for strolling and picnics and a great selection of restaurants. You’ll find everything from traditional Danish cuisine to French bistro or Asian food. During the festive season, Tivoli Lake is transformed into a sound and light show and there are spectacular fireworks here on New Year’s Eve.
Possibly Copenhagen’s most famous attraction, the bronze and granite sculpture of the little mermaid was a gift from Danish brewer Carl Jacobsen to the City of Copenhagen. Created by sculptor Edvard Eriksen, you’ll find her on a rock by the waterside at Langelinje Pier, where she’s been looking out to sea since 1913. Apparently, the artist was inspired by Hans Christian Anderson’s fairy tale about a mermaid who gives up her life in the sea so she can be with her prince on land. The model for the sculpture was the sculptor’s wife, Eline Eriksen.
Nyhavn is a beautiful 17th-century waterfront, canal and entertainment district. Lying between Kongens Nytorv and the harbour front south of the Royal Playhouse, this once-thriving commercial port is now a popular tourist destination, renowned for its restored 18th-century townhouses (many of which were home to well-known artists), live music and eclectic cafes, shops, bars and restaurants. You’ll also see historical wooden ships in the canal. Danish author Hans Christian Anderson once lived in the area, and during the festive season there are market stalls along the cobbled quay.
Formerly the home of the Danish royal family (they moved to Amalien Palace in the 1800s), Christiansborg is located on the island of Slotsholmen. Known as the Borgen, the Palace is now home to the Danish Parliament, while parts of the Palace are used for state events. Built in 1773, this Baroque palace is stunning: head for the Tower Room, the Oval Throne Room, the Velvet Room and the Great Hall with its unique tapestries. Then stop for lunch or a coffee in the Tower restaurant, just below the viewing deck. At 106m it’s the highest tower in Copenhagen and has superb views over the city and canals.
A visit to the Carlsberg Museum is a must for beer lovers. The former Carlsberg Brewery is now a living homage to the art of Danish brewing with daily guided tours from beer experts who share the ingredients and processes that create such a world-renowned lager. It’s not all history and great architecture though, visitors are also encouraged to join the daily beer tasting sessions. The brewery founder, JC Jacobsen lived next to the brewery and gave workers their own generous daily beer allowance. You can also take a self-guided tour and there’s a Carlsberg merchandise store.
