The most popular city in Denmark for international tourists is Copenhagen. In 2019 it reached the 73rd place of the world most popular cities with 3.19 m tourists as you can see in Copenhagen tourist map. Copenhagen has tried to face the challenge of overtourism by introducing new strategies to better manage the influx of visitors but according to some experts, it is not enough. The Danish capital saw a 74% increase in tourists over the past decade and received 8.8 million guests (not including the 1.9 million Airbnb users) in 2018 alone, a figure that is expected to double by 2030, according to Wonderful Copenhagen.
Denmark capital is an easy sell at any time of year. In summer, locals and tourists swim in urban harbours like Islands Brygge, soak up the sun in King Garden or flock to the open-air street food market Reffen as its shown in Copenhagen tourist map. In winter, there is a warmth and cosiness - or hygge - from candles in cafe windows, the fairy-light beams from the Frederiksberg Gardens skating rink and the glow of bicycle lights as people course through the city of Copenhagen on two wheels. It is also consistently rated as one of the most liveable and happiest cities in the world.
Most Copenhagen tourists - around 87% as its mentioned in Copenhagen tourist map - tend to stay in and around the inner-city, especially the 17th-century canal district Nyhavn with its colourful merchant houses. And herein lies one of the biggest problems. The concentrated inflow of tourists clogging the heart of the city is starting to put a strain on urban life with increased waste, noise and traffic levels. In response to the issue, Wonderful Copenhagen - a tourism agency that was established to lure more tourists to Copenhagen - has said it will stop marketing Nyhavn as a tourist destination and try to encourage people to visit areas outside the city centre.

Copenhagen is a green city with many big and small parks. King Garden, the garden of Rosenborg Castle as you can see in Copenhagen attractions map, is the oldest and most visited park in Copenhagen. Its landscaping was commenced by Christian IV in 1606. Every year it sees more than 2.5 million visitors and in the summer months it is packed with sunbathers, picnickers and ballplayers. It serves as a sculpture garden with a permanent display of sculptures as well as temporary exhibits during summer. Also located in Copenhagen city centre are the Botanical Gardens particularly noted for their large complex of 19th century greenhouses donated by Carlsberg founder J. C. Jacobsen. Fælledparken is at 58 hectares the largest park in Copenhagen. It is popular for sports and hosts several annual events such as a free opera concert at the opening of the opera season, other open-air concerts, carnival, Labour Day celebrations and Copenhagen Historic Grand Prix, which is a race for antique cars.
Copenhagen and the surrounding areas have 3 beaches with a total of approx. 8 km of sandy beaches within 30 minutes cycling from the city centre as its shown in Copenhagen attractions map. This includes Amager Strandpark, which opened in 2005 and includes a 2 km long artificial island and a total of 4.6 km of beaches, located just 15 minutes by bicycle or a few minutes by metro from the city centre. On the tiny island of Slotsholmen is the Danish seat of government and an attraction that should top any visitor agenda. Christiansborg boasts more than 800 years of history and today, the palace is home to the Parliament, the Prime Minister Office, and the Supreme Court. An easy 10-minute walk from Tivoli along Vestergade brings you to the National Museum (Nationalmuseet), a must-see attraction for anyone with an interest in Danish history and culture.
The National Gallery of Denmark displays the largest collection of Danish art from the 1700s to the present day, as well as impressive works from around the world. Attractions include the Danish and Nordic art exhibition, which spans 150 years, as well as paintings by the Dutch Masters, Edvard Munch, and Picasso among others. On Købmagergade is the Round Tower (Rundetårn), a 36-meter-high structure built as an observatory in 1642 as its mentioned in Copenhagen attractions map. It now also houses a small collection connected with the famous Danish astronomer Tycho Brahe. Less than one and a half kilometers from Rosenborg in the Frederiksstaden quarter, you will find Rosenborg sister palace, Amalienborg, along with its serene waterfront gardens. The Copenhagen four palaces facing onto the square were originally built as homes for the nobility, but were taken over by the Royal Family after a fire at Christiansborg in 1794. The palace takes its name from Queen Sophie Amalie who had a sumptuous summer retreat on the site, which also burned down in 1689.

Copenhagen Zoo ( Danish : København Zoo) is a zoological garden in Copenhagen, Denmark. Founded in 1859, it is one of the oldest zoos in Europe . It included 11 hectares (27 acres) and is located in the municipality of Frederiksberg, sandwiched between the parks of Frederiksberg Park and Søndermarken as you can see in Copenhagen zoo map. With 1,161,388 visitors in 2008 it is the most visited zoo and 4th most visited attraction in Denmark. The zoo is noted for its new Elephant House designed by the world-famous British architect Sir Norman Foster. The zoo maintains and promotes a number of European breeding programs and is active in the safeguarding several endangered species.
A notable and highly-visible feature of the Copenhagen zoo is the 43.5 meter tall wooden observation tower. The tower was built in 1905 and is one of the tallest observation towers built of wood in the world. Its base is similar to that of Eiffel Tower. The new Elephant House, opened in June 2008, is designed by Norman Foster in cooperation with the Danish landscape architect Stig L Andersson . It contains two glass-domed enclosures. One is for six cows and calves and measures 45 by 23 meters (148 by 75 ft). The other is 30 by 15 meters (98 by 49 ft) and is for two bulls as its shown in Copenhagen zoo map, kept in separate pens during the mating season for fear of fights. The building also contain an exhibit space and a small lecture hall. The enclosures open out through mighty rusted steel doors into am almost 1 hectare big landscaped paddock with a pool 3 meters (9.8 ft) deep and 60 meters (200 ft) long.
During the last 25 years, Copenhagen Zoo has been undergoing a renovation project aimed at replacing cages with enclosures which recreate animals' natural environments, giving a better lifestyle to the animals, and a more realistic experience to visitors. The Elephant House and 1.5-hectare (3.7-acre) Savanna are results of these efforts as its mentioned in Copenhagen zoo map. The Savanna includes a Hippopotamus House where the hippos can be watched underwater. The zoo has preserved many of its historical buildings. The oldest building still in use, a stable for yaks , was erected in 1872, and now houses the camels . A Herbivore House built in 1875 herbivorous still houses, namely tapirs . An owl tower from 1885 is today left as a memorial commemorating how zoo animals were once kept. Another characteristic building is the Zoo Tower from 1905, an observation tower built entirely out of wood. 43.5 meters (143 ft) high, it offers views of the surrounding parklands and city.
