There are so many reasons why people love to take their families to Denmark’s capital city, Copenhagen. It’s a city full of activities and attractions that offers a bit extra to children, compared to other major cities. From the pools at national parks, to the treasure hunts at the Rosenborg Castle, you’ll never run out of fun things to do with the family in this Nordic wonderland.
Copenhagen is known to be one of the most family-friendly cities in the world. According to democratic tradition, children are catered to as much as adults, thus city planners are dedicated to creating opportunities for entertainment for both kids and adults.
Despite the city being so accessible to families, Denmark is still a foreign country with unfamiliar routes that may not be easy to follow for first-time visitors. Before traveling to Copenhagen, it’s highly recommended that you download several city-specific apps beforehand. As the operators of online slots portal SpinGenie recently documented in a blog post, “mobile internet is the strongest trend in the internet landscape,” and has completely restructured our lifestyles, making it easier for parents to take their kids around a foreign city without the pains of language barriers and ambiguous maps. Armed with various apps, families can now get the most from their city vacations by sourcing information directly from their smartphones or tablets.
Here are a few suggested apps:

If you and your family are planning to do a lot of sightseeing, you’ll need to utilize the city’s public transportation and not just take cabs.
