Freetown Christiania is only 15 minutes' drive from Crowne Plaza Copenhagen Towers but it's a world away from conventional city life. This commune became a global symbol of counter culture in the 1970s and remains a beacon for artists and intellectuals.
Tivoli Gardens is more than a theme park. Michelin-starred restaurants, epoch-defining architecture and a year-round programme of concerts offer ample alternatives to nerve-shredding rides. Ask about Tivoli packages at Crowne Plaza Copenhagen Towers.
National Aquarium Denmark, Den Blå Planet is Northern Europe’s largest aquarium with more than 20,000 animals and seven million litres of water. In 2013 the aquarium moved to larger surroundings at the waterfront - not far from the hotel, that also offers package-deals.
