Copenhagen with kids
Older kids adore the Tycho Brahe Planetarium, Europe’s most high-tech exposition on the night sky. The Planetarium also projects amazing 3D films on the 1,000sqm dome-shaped screen, including voyages to the planets and creatures of the deep seas. It is so big and so real you truly feel like you are part of the action.
Near to nature
Copenhagen’s Zoo has to be one of the world’s most kid-friendly zoos. In addition to 260 species of animals from across the globe – including eye-popping exhibitions of polar bears and elephants – there is the delightful Children's Zoo where kids can meet and pat tame animals like rabbits, pygmy goats and even slithering snakes.
At Charlottenlund, just north of the capital, the amazing Denmark’s Aquarium takes visitors around the world via sea creatures, where exhibitions range from crocodiles to giant octopus, to a get-wet touch pool. A new aquarium named The Blue Planet, set to be the biggest in northern Europe, is due to open in 2013 on the shores of Øresund, north of the capital. In true Danish style it is set to do things just a few notches better than most – with the littlest members of society firmly in mind.
