Motorhoming in Copenhagen
As the song goes “Wonderful, wonderful Copenhagen, friendly old girl of a town”. Copenhagen is an extremely friendly place to visit; the line ‘let us clink and drink one down’ is also still also true, as this is a place where the Danes really enjoy themselves. So, what has Copenhagen got to offer visitors on a motorhome rental or campervan hire holiday?
Services for campervan hire and motorhome rental vehicles.
The nearest campsite to the centre of Copenhagen is Absalon Copenhagen Camp at Rødovre, just 15 minutes from the city. This site may be near the city, but you would never know it. It’s a large flat site surrounded by trees and countryside, with every type of facility for morothomes and campervans; and lots more besides.
Top things to see and do
New Carlsburg Glyptotek. Not what you boys are thinking! This is probably the best museum to visit if you don’t like museums. It has everything from Egyptian relics to works of art by the French impressionists, so there’s lots of choice.
The Royal Stables or Kongelige Stadle og Karter. There are some historic and extremely beautiful carriages on display here, as well as the horses of the Royal family.
Tivoli Gardens. Come here in the early evening when the sun is just going down for the best experience. There’s music and places to eat, as well as the folral gardens and rides. The gardens are especially good during the day for visitors travelling with small families, the majority of the rides are not the hair-raising ones of some of the larger parks.
One for the girls. Visit Rosenborg Castle, this Renaissance castle is jam packed with ‘bling’. Tonnes of gold, diamonds and other treasures, including the Crown Jewels. The rooms are just as well decorated, especially the Throne Room, and unlike the Tower of London, you won’t have to queue for ages to see anything. The gardens at the castle are also very beautiful so take a little time to explore outside too.
One for the boys. Not just for the boys, but for anyone who enjoys keeping fit, join one of the Running tours of Copenhagen. Take a guided tour of the city stopping at all the points of interest. The guides run at whatever speed you are comfortable at, so there’s no need to worry about being left behind.
Just for fun… Take a canal tour. The canal tours last about an hour and a half, and take you past all the major sites (that can be from the water, of course). This is a great opportunity to view some of Copenhagen’s architecture, and it’s an especially good way of seeing the ‘Little Mermaid’ statue.
Copenhagen is one of the must do stops on any tour of Denmark, and unlike visitors staying in the city hotels, visitors with motorhome rental or campervan hire will be able to save on their accommodation costs!
