Denmark has a great biking culture, and most Copenhageners use their bicycles every day as mean of transportation, which means that the city has a great system of cycle-streets. So, if you want to explore Copenhagen on two wheels, scroll down and discover these places worth visiting on a bike.
Kastellet (The Citadel in English) is a pentagon-shaped fortress, and it is considered to be one of the most well-preserved in northern Europe. A ride among the the fortifications, the windmills and the Baroque-style buildings offers a relaxing excursion away from the city’s noise. Plus, it is just a few minutes away from the Langelinie promenade, where The Little Mermaid is located. So, after exploring the historic fortress, visit the famous bronze statue and take a ride at the waterfront. Located at Østerbro, on your way getting there from Nørreport Station, you’ll have the chance to see the Rosenborg castle and the National Gallery of Denmark.
For those who really enjoy cycling and a 9 miles (15 kilometres) ride on their bikes sounds fun, Dragør is the perfect destination. Located on the southeastern coast of Amager island, the scenic village with the colourful houses and the picturesque harbour is an ideal one-day trip. Enjoy a slow ride in the narrow alleys and breathe in the fresh air of the countryside. If the distance seems too long, take the metro to Copenhagen’s airport and get off at the terminal station. From there is only 5 miles (8 kilometres) to reach the old fishing village.
Copenhagen’s city centre is full of green parks that offer some peaceful moments away from cars and traffic lights. One of the best to discover on two wheels is Frederiksberg Garden, one of the largest parks in town. In the summertime, it is full of people training, having picnics or strolling around or cycling. Explore the huge green area and see the water canals, as well as the 17th century Frederiksberg Palace.
