Copenhagen - Must see places and time required in city!!

Hello Fellow travelers,

I am visiting Copenhagen for a training in second week of Aug 2014. Will arrive in Copenhagen on Sunday afternoon and then I will have evenings (after 5 PM) on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday at my disposal to explore city. I guess the sun will set down late similar to other European cities.

Would the time above is sufficient or shall I spare one full day (Thursday) for the city? What are the Must See places and MUST DO THINGS in Copenhagen. I am not much an art lover, so muesums are last on my list.

Cheers
Abhi

Where in Copenhagen is your training taking place?

If the weather is nice (so far it has been spectacular this summer), an evening around the Tivoli Gardens will be delightful, you can have a typical Danish meal at Grøften for instance.
An evening in Nyhavn will also be very nice, lots of colourful buildings, lots of pubs, restaurants. It is easy to walk around central Copenhagen, nice old squares eg Gråbrødretorv. You can take the train to some beautiful suburbs eg Charlottenlund & then see Bakken or further north on the coast or even have an evening in Malmö, Sweden. Copenhagen has some old city fortifications (google Charlottenlundfort) which make for a pleasant evening excursion followed by a nice meal at a local restaurant.

Copenhagen has several royal palaces that are well worth seeing as well as a number of art museums and a Danish history/culture museum. I have no idea how late in the evening these are open and that's something you might want to know. Also a day trip to Roskilde - a wonderful Viking shop museum and fascinating cathedral. There are also several castles in the area north of the city on/near the cost.

So no, I don;t think a few evenings are enough to really see much of Copenhagen.

But what about all of those other places - never mind visiting Tivoli, Nyhaven and the other cute neighborhoods, castles, etc

The Training is in City Centre (Radisson Blu Hotel.

It seems I need to have one extra day to cover day activities and day trip.

I had my picture made with The Little Mermaid, but might qualify as art to you.

You can take a train from Central Station for daytrips north of Copenhagen.

Rosenborg Castle in Copenhagen.

Take a horse & carriage around Dyrehavsbakken (Deer Park at Bakken), pricey though.

Peter Liep's Hus just outside Bakken for a typical Danish meal.

Go to the beach. Dronningmølle beach is particularly lovely. Eat smoked fish or fish frikadeller at Gilleleje.

Even if you are not an art lover, it would be a pity not to see the Glyptotek.
