Founded in the 10th century as a Viking fishing village, Copenhagen has morphed into the cultural, political, and economic powerhouse of the country.
Get outdoors at Gammel Strand and Slotsholmen. Attractions like Nyhavn and National Museum of Denmark make great kid-friendly stops. There's much more to do: find something for the whole family at Tivoli Gardens, appreciate the extensive heritage of Christianshavn, take in panoramic vistas at The Round Tower, and examine the collection at Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek.

To find where to stay, ratings, reviews, and other tourist information, read our Copenhagen trip itinerary builder.

If you are flying in from Malta, the closest major airport is Copenhagen Kastrup Airport. Expect a daytime high around 6°C in December, and nighttime lows around 1°C. Finish up your sightseeing early on the 15th (Thu) so you can catch the train to Aarhus.

Located on the sea, Aarhus blends a world city with a small-town feel. Home to a young population, the city has a reputation for producing internationally known pop and rock musicians.
Start off your visit on the 16th (Fri): contemplate the waterfront views at Egaa Engso and then get in on the family fun at Eventhall ApS. On the 17th (Sat), you'll have a packed day of sightseeing: stroll through Strandbaren, then delve into the lush surroundings at Moesgard Forrest, and then look for all kinds of wild species at Aarslev Engso.
