Activities at the Hotel

Bespoke walking and running routes
Is the freedom to incorporate nature into your daily exercise high on your list of priorities? Then join us on a walking/running route and explore the hotel’s nature surroundings. We’ve created three different digital running routes and added them to the RunGo app, which uses turn-by-turn navigation to show you which route to run, the remaining distance and which roads or paths you should take. Just like a car’s GPS system.

The shorter three-kilometre route is also recommended as a walk-and-talk route for a healthy break during a meeting or seminar. RunGo is free and available for iOS and Android – for both smartphones and Apple Watch.

Bike rental
Copenhagen is the city of cyclists. So get out into the fresh air and see the capital alongside the Copenhageners. You can rent bikes by the day. Just ask at reception.

Price per bike is DKK 185 for a full day and DKK 95 from 15:00-22:00.

Board games
Board games are more popular than ever nowadays and everyone can take part. We have a varied selection of board games that you are more than welcome to borrow. Just ask at reception. 

Sights and Attractions Near the Hotel

Tivoli Gardens is an amusement park located in the centre of Copenhagen close to Central Station and Strøget. The Park is the world's second oldest of its kind, surpassed only by Bakken. Walt Disney drew a great deal of inspiration from Tivoli, which is almost magical when in full bloom with some of Denmark’s most beautiful perennials, flowers and shrubs. Enjoy a walk in the beautiful garden with historic buildings, cosy nooks and fun-filled squeals.

Christiansborg Palace, or simply Christiansborg, is located on Slotsholmen in central Copenhagen and is the seat of the Danish Parliament (Folketinget). The Danish royal family also continues to use various parts of the palace, including the Royal Reception Rooms, the chapel and the Royal Stables. The current palace is the latest in a series of buildings that have occupied the site since the 12th century, and it has been the centre of power in Denmark since the 15th century. It still houses the most important central institutions of state power and is often referred to as Rigsborgen or simply Borgen. Visit Christiansborg and experience the Royal Reception Rooms with the Great Hall and the Tapestries, the Royal Stables, the Royal Kitchen, Christiansborg Palace Chapel, and the ruins under the castle.

Christiania (also called Fristaden or just Staden) is an area in the city’s Christianshavn district. Approx. 800 people make their home here. Christiania is Copenhagen's fourth largest tourist attraction with half a million visitors each year.

Copenhagen Zoo is one of Europe’s oldest zoos, where you can see more than 4,000 fascinating animals and cross continents in a pull-along wagon. Come and see the iconic pandas and enjoy a meal alongside these bamboo-eating bears in the magnificent Panda House. You can get so close to the polar bears that it will give you chills or see the world from above like a giraffe.

SMK – the National Gallery of Denmark
SMK – the National Gallery of Denmark is the country’s national gallery and its leading museum for the visual arts. It is located on Sølvgade in the city centre, next to Østre Anlæg. The museum houses more than 700 years of art and art history and holds about five special exhibitions annually. Free guided tours are offered every Sunday for both children and adults. 

The Blue Planet
The Blue Planet is Northern Europe's largest aquarium and is filled with exciting and surprising stories about life in the water. The aquarium offers both short bursts of adrenaline and lingering reflections. Learning is made captivating as well as entertaining – the stories take shape through dedicated storytellers, digital platforms, interactive screens and exhibitions, wild feeding and plenty of personal experiences.

Rosenborg Castle
Rosenborg is a castle located in the heart of Copenhagen. It was originally built as a hermitage by order of King Christian IV 1606-1607 in a newly laid out park, Kongens Have, outside Copenhagen's ramparts. Today, it is a cultural history museum that tells the story of the Danish kings over 300 years and exhibits the Danish crown regalia and crown jewels as well as Denmark's coronation throne.

Nature Experiences Near the Hotel

Nearest places to swim
If you’re looking for a refreshing dip, we recommend the harbour bath at Sandkaj, situated just a stone’s throw from the hotel. Relax, savour life by the water in the middle of Copenhagen or take a stroll along the promenade. Do you like the feel of sand between your toes? Visit Amager Beach with its historic bathing complex, Helgoland. It only takes 15 min. by Metro to get to the beach.

Nearest high street
In the heart of Copenhagen is Strøget, which was once the longest pedestrianised street in the world. Strøget takes you from Kongens Nytorv to City Hall Square which is lined with hundreds of shops, cafés and restaurants. Take a few detours off Strøget and experience old Copenhagen with its charming alleyways and innovative shops. In the Århusgade district close to the hotel, the transformation from the old free port to the modern district is going at full speed. Guests can find a varied array of original speciality shops and eateries, all with the same focus as ours: sustainability and great experiences. The Århusgade district is also known as The Red City.

Nearest green area
Copenhagen is famed for its many green oases. Take a stroll along Copenhagen's ramparts and experience Kastellet (the Citadel). If you love unspoiled nature, we recommend that you take the Metro to Amager Common, a 223-hectare nature reserve. If you prefer a longer hike, you can even head out on the brand-new 21-kilometre-long Amarmino route. For a true forest experience, we recommend a trip to Dyrehaven (Deer Park) north of Copenhagen. Dyrehaven is a large nature park filled with forest areas, small lakes and open plains. As the name suggests, Dyrehaven is famed for its more than 2,000 wild deer, and you will most likely encounter a herd of grazing animals there. The characteristic red gates stand at all entrances. The most used, Klampenborg gate, is located right by Klampenborg Station.
