Added Feb 21, 2012 by GIBSON KOFI HENDERSONFounded in 1971, Christiania is an anarchic part of Denmark. It was set up as a direct result of the student uprisings of the 1960s. Today, Christiania is home to some 750 outsiders and is a free city, which means that it is not part of the city, the country, or the European Union. It is a lively place and there are always lots of activities happening. One of the original ideas was to have a car-free town, but nowadays the inhabitants have trouble finding parking spaces outside the district because of the multitude of tourist buses. Visitors should be aware that the sale of drugs is legal here, and that dogs run around the streets freely. Guided tours can be arranged.

Added Feb 21, 2012 by GIBSON KOFI HENDERSONBuilt by Frederik V to celebrate the 300th anniversary of the House of Oldenborg, Amalienborg consists of four palaces built around a square. These are Moltkes Palace (Christian VII's palace), Schackske Palace (Christians IX's palace and residence of Queen Margrethe and Prince Henrik), Levetzaus Palace (Christian VIII's palace and residence of Crown Prince Frederik) and Brockdorfske Palace (Frederik VIII's palace). Architect Niels Eigtved was heavily influenced by the rococo style. Of the four palaces, Moltkes Palace is considered the most outstanding. When Christiansborg burned down in 1794, the royal family moved to Amalienborg, since then it has been their official residence. The square is dominated by Saly's equestrian statue of Frederik V (1723-1766) which, together with the palace buildings, forms a breathtaking architectural ensemble. Lovers of the royal family flock to the square once a year to celebrate Queen Margrethe's birthday.

Added Feb 21, 2012 by GIBSON KOFI HENDERSONNyhavn docks were constructed in 1670 as an encouragement to trade and shipping, with a new canal going from the harbor of Copenhagen to Kongens Nytorv. Along the quays, houses have been built on the two different sides - one side contains Charlottenborg castle and blocks of flats, which belong to the bourgeoisie; and on the other side, there are houses built of timber, and picturesque buildings. Today, this side of Nyhavn has become fashionable. The quay has been turned into a pedestrian street and the harbor basin has been opened for old sailing ships. Excellent restaurants and cafés have opened; and especially in the summer, the quay is crowded with people having a good time. One of the most famous residents of Nyhavn was the fairy-tale writer Hans Christian Andersen. You can take tours departing from Nyhavn on the Kanalrundfarten or Havnebussen to see many of the important sights around here, including Holmen.

Copenhagen is the capital of Denmark, on the island of Zealand. It is one of Europe's most enjoyable cities. Situated on the Oresund Strait, with Sweden just minutes away by train, and is a link between mainland Europe and Scandinavia. Copenhagen has a wealth of culture and entertainment and a reputation for tolerance. The fascinating 'free city' of Christiania, is a community of people who have tried to create an equal and just consensus-governed democracy.
Families with children (and the young at heart) may enjoy Tivoli, the world famous theme park in central Copenhagen. Tivoli is especially beautiful at night when its colored lamps are lit. There are also pop/rock concerts every Friday night, sometimes with internationally known names.
Slotsholmen is a small cluster of museums and sights, such as Christiansborg Palace and the ruins underneath dating back to the 12th century, The Danish Jewish Museum, The Theatre Museum, Thorvaldsens Museum , The Royal Danish Arsenal Museum and finally The Black Diamond, the Museum of Danish Cartoon Art and the National Museum of Photography. Christiansborg Palace also houses the Danish parliament, where you can get a free guided tour. Tours in English are usually around 2 pm.
