Copenhagen is full of cultural rich places to visit with your children. Each day, Copenhagen opens its doors to offer a new adventure. You might discover a new museum with climbable art, or visit a royal palace and see the soldiers playing soccer. You might go to a park with bronze statues made 100’s of years ago and see clowns practicing juggling or go swimming in the harbor and see a ship with people swing dancing on the deck. Copenhagen is full of surprises at every turn and even if you have visited a place before, there is a world of new experiences to discover through your child’s eyes.  The most amazing moments happen between the mundane, so go explore some of the regular places in town and see more.
