Only eight kilometres from the Copenhagen City Hall Square, “Den Blå Planet” (the Blue Planet) is above all, Northern Europe’s largest aquarium. That is to say, with its unique whirlpool-shape, it offers a unique experience for the whole family! Having water on all sides giving the impression to be directly in the sea.

4. National Children’s Museum

Set in the National Museum, there are no “Do no touch” signs in the children’s area. Therefore it offers interactive exhibitions and displays to bring history to life.

For instance, the kids will be able to dress up as 19th-century school children, ride on a Viking ship and defend a medieval castle. If you take them to the rest of the museum, watch out for the “Boredom button”, designed to bring the museum to life.

The museum restaurant, Smör, offers child-friendly food and delicious pastries.
