Founded in the 10th century as a Viking fishing village, Copenhagen has morphed into the cultural, political, and economic powerhouse of the country.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Copenhagen Free Walking Tours. Step out of the city life by going to Gammel Strand and Peblinge Lake. And it doesn't end there: take in the waterfront at Nyhavn, pause for some photo ops at The Little Mermaid (Den Lille Havfrue), wander the streets of Christiania, and take in panoramic vistas at The Round Tower.

For traveler tips, ratings, photos, and tourist information, read Copenhagen holiday planner.

If you are flying in from Ghana, the closest major airport is Copenhagen Kastrup Airport. In December, plan for daily highs up to 6°C, and evening lows to 1°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 26th (Mon) early enough to take a train to Aarhus.
