Great place for a photo with the pastel structures and ships. It also has a lot of restaurant options as well, though it can be a bit pricey.

Stupendous walk through the canal, which takes you to open harbor view of Royal Danish Opera House and many other boat tours. The boat tour is an incredible way to see Copenhagen!

A must-see in Copenhagen! Very beautiful place with lots of colourful houses, boats, restaurants and cafes. A lot of tourists everywhere so quite crowded. A short walking distance from the main street Strøget.

This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its
blend of charming old buildings and bold new
architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well
as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner
city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which
consists of three buildings, two of which are new and
situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and
venues of the inner city and its surrounding

I picked mine up at the Centralstation. Mine was specifically for public transportation and spanned only 48hrs. That includes the bus, subway, and ferry. A ferry ride at night is a lot of fun :)
