The Best 5 Day Trips From Copenhagen
Day Trips From Copenhagen | Kronborg Castle
Located a 50-minute train ride north of Copenhagen, this quaint town is bustling with things to do and see. Enjoy a stroll along the old narrow cobbled streets or learn more about maritime history and craft at the award-winning M/S Maritime Museum of Denmark. Finally, no trip to Helsingør is complete without paying a visit to its most famous sight, which is included in the UNESCO World Heritage List – Kronborg Castle, also known as Helsingør Castle in Shakespeare’s Hamlet. Learn more about the castle’s role in Shakespeare’s play and the lavish lifestyle of Danish royals during the renaissance by taking a tour of the castle.
Day Trips From Copenhagen | Roskilde and the Viking Museum
Located only 30 minutes from Copenhagen, right by a picturesque fjord, the former Danish capital is the perfect day trip for history enthusiasts.
Experience what it was like to be a Viking by taking a sailing trip onboard one of the Roskilde Viking Ship Museum ships. Take a journey back through 800 years of history at the Roskilde Cathedral – a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and learn more about the Viking kings and the Cathedral’s gothic architecture. Moreover, if you plan to visit Denmark at the end of June, try to get tickets to the world-famous Roskilde Festival, the largest and one of the oldest festivals in Northern Europe, and spend a day or two enjoying world-class musical performances.
Furthermore, the number of activities and sights in Roskilde can be a bit overwhelming, so why not make your experience stress- and worry-free by booking a private guided tour of Roskilde and its sights on Amitylux?

Day Trips From Copenhagen | Explore the South of Sweden
Why not kill two birds with one stone by visiting two countries during one trip? Take a 38-minute train round across the Øresund bridge to the Swedish city of Malmö from Copenhagen for a day trip full of cultural experiences, architectural marvels, shopping, and good food. We recommend gazing at Scandinavia’s tallest building – The Turning Torso – which is visible from all over Malmö and grabbing a bite to eat at the Malmö Saluhall food market. However, the southern part of Sweden has more to offer, and it is easy to get around the area with public transportation. Read up on the region’s attractions on Visit Sweden’s website.
Day Trips From Copenhagen | Louisiana Museum of Modern Art and ARKEN
No list of day trips from Copenhagen would be complete without mentioning the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art or the ARKEN Museum of Modern Art. Both museums feature stunning permanent modern art collections and temporary exhibitions by world-renowned artists. In addition, we have a whole blog post describing the sights in more detail, which you can find here.
Day Trips From Copenhagen | Cliffs of Møn
Lastly, in our current blog post, one place that takes a bit longer to get to but is worth the trip is Cliffs of Møn, also known as Møns Klint. This UNESCO biosphere reserve includes a series of cliffs towering 128 meters above the Baltic Sea and the surrounding flora and fauna, totalling 450 square kilometres. A day trip to the Cliffs of Møn is the perfect getaway if you want peace surrounded by beautiful, well-preserved nature.
