Our favorite attractions for Copenhagen travel:
Nyhavn Canal -- the photo in our website

This will be one of your most memorable sights when you travel to
Little Mermaid Statue -- located in the
same area as the cruise ship docks, the mermaid welcomes travel visitors to
Copenhagen and has become a symbol of the city's friendliness. It
was commissioned in honor of Hans Christian Andersen.
Tivoli Gardens -- supposedly Walt Disney's

that sold mouth watering pastry.
Take some time to shop in the pedestrian
mall that is just off of the main square.
said -- great city, fascinating architecture, and the visit to Tivoli
Gardens was memorable.
said -- my favorite port! The Nyhavn Canal is a knockout, and
Tivoli Gardens was nice and very well maintained. We saw a mime
show and a concert as we wandered through the park, and we also saw Sean
Connery walking through the park.
