Cycling in Copenhagen

Copenhagen is a flat, safe and easy-going city for cyclists, so why not explore it on bike with your family? Once you jump on your bike, the city opens up in front of you, and everything becomes even more accessible than it already was. Rent a bike from the town centre, or visit the Bicycle Innovation Lab and borrow one of their interesting contraptions for a guided tour.

Tivoli Gardens

Located just outside of Copenhagen, Tivoli Gardens is the world’s second-oldest amusement park and has been one of Copenhagen’s biggest family destination for generations. This year, the old wooden rollercoaster turns 100 years old and to celebrate, it is being re-decorated and restyled, with a 20-metre waterfall on the side to give you the impression of travelling in the mountains. Look out for open-air film screenings too, an ideal way to spend a Sunday together as a family.

Roskilde Fjord and Viking Boats

Head to Roskilde Fjord and not only can you enjoy some beautiful countryside views, but you can also check out the Viking Boat Museum and learn more about the seafaring ways of the ancient residents of Scandinavia. Join the War Expedition and you and your family can participate in Sweyn Forkbeard’s conquest of England. Learn how to take control of the warship, how to fight like Vikings and how to work together as a team in order to lead a successful expedition, kids will love it.

Blue Planet Aquarium

Wander through the water-filled rooms of the Blue Planet Aquarium and you will feel as if you are submerged under water, giving you a better view of the way fish and marine wildlife, including hammerhead sharks, rays and more, behave than ever before. There are also aquariums that you can see from above, and an Amazon area, which has a hot and humid atmosphere with butterflies and birds flying around guests freely.

We are finding that many of our customers are now using alternative routes - either Newcastle-Amsterdam or Dover-Dunkirk. Depending on where your family are based in the UK will depend on which route is best for you.

Centrally located on Jutland, Denmark's western island, the region of Billund has worked hard to develop a wonderful place for Danish families to settle and live. Their focus has been to create an environment where families spend time together, whether that me learning, playing, eating or simply relaxing.
