The Latin Quarter is a neighbourhood in central Copenhagen. The name refers to the Latin language, which was once widely spoken in and around the University, whose historic home is situated on the other side of Nørregade. Most of the student life has now been relocated to four new campuses but the area is still known for its lively atmosphere with an abundance of boutiques, cafés and night clubs.

Rosenborg Castle is a renaissance castle located in Copenhagen. The castle was originally built as a country summerhouse in 1606 and is an example of Christian IV's many architectural projects. It was built in the Dutch Renaissance style, typical of Danish buildings during this period, and has been expanded several times, finally evolving into its present condition by the year 1624.
2. Tivoli Gardens
Tivoli Gardens (or simply Tivoli) is a famous amusement park and pleasure garden in Copenhagen. The park opened on 15 August 1843 and is the second oldest amusement park in the world, after Dyrehavsbakken in nearby Klampenborg. Tivoli is the second most popular seasonal theme park in the world, the most visited theme park in Scandinavia and the fourth most visited in Europe, only behind Disneyland Paris, Europa-Park Rust and the Efteling.
1. Harbour Sights
The best way to soak in the city's plentiful and beautiful harbour sights is to take a harbour trip, from Nyhavn through the Inner Harbour, along the canals of Slotsholmen and Christianshavn. It is also a fantastic way to understand Copenhagen's development over the years.
Bakken - World´s Oldest Amusement Park - Dyrehavsbakken - Copenhagen Attractions - Travel Video
Copenhagen Travel Video - This is Bakken, the World´s Oldest, still active, Amusement Park. We are at Dyrehavsbakken (known to most as Bakken) located in Klampenborg a very short train ride outside of the City of Copenhagen, Denmark. The origins of Dyrehavsbakken have been traced back to 1583, making it the oldest amusement park. The second oldest amusement park in the World just so happens to also be located in Denmark, more specifically in the City of Copenhagen and is called Tivoli. Tivoli is one of the Top Copenhagen attractions to visit for any traveler visiting Denmark and Copenhagen.
Bakken although located a very short train ride outside of Copenhagen City is apparently not so well known to tourists despite it being the World´s oldest amusement Park. Traveller Channel highly recommends that visitors to Copenhagen add this beautiful, charming and very unique amusement park to their top attractions to visit list when in Copenhagen. We at Traveller Channel (Maxi & Maro) enjoy visiting this park as it offers a beautiful walk through the forest where you often spot herds of Deer walking freely through the forests, and above all the park offers a huge variety of restaurants offering everything from Traditional Danish Foods to all you can eat Burgers and Steaks. This NO COMMENT tour begins where we arrive at Klampenborg Station on the DSB S-Train. The footage then follows our route from the station, to the entrance, through the forest and into and around the Bakken Amusement Park, where we have also included footage of the very new attraction the Town of Korsbæk based on the fictional Danish TV serial Matador (this attraction probably has most meaning to Danes or people who are familiar with the television serial). While filming this footage Bakken was hosting the annual Santa Claus Congress which takes place at Bakken every Year. This is the reason you will notice Christmas Trees, decorations and Santa´s appearing in and around our tour of the Bakken Amusement Park. If you wish to see more 4K filmed Santa Claus Congress footage click on this link ( This link will also appear in the video footage as we briefly visit the Santa Claus Congress. We hope that you will enjoy this NO COMMENT tour of the famous Dyrehavsparken, if you have any questions please feel very welcome to ask in the comments section below.
Wiki writes about Dyrehavsbakken (Bakke), Dyrehavsbakken (The Deer Park's Hill), commonly referred to as Bakken (The Hill), is an amusement park near Klampenborg (Gentofte municipality), but which belongs under Lyngby-Taarbæk Kommune, Denmark, about 10 km north of Copenhagen...It opened in 1583 and is the world's oldest operating amusement park...The origins of Dyrehavsbakken can be traced back to 1583 when Kirsten Piil discovered a natural spring in what is now known as Jægersborg Dyrehave or Dyrehaven, a large forest park north of Copenhagen. Residents of Copenhagen were attracted to the spring due to the poor water quality in central Copenhagen during this period. Many believed the natural spring water to have curative properties, and therefore Piil's discovery drew large crowds, especially in the springtime. These large crowds attracted entertainers and hawkers, whose presence began the origins of amusement parks as are presently known.

The Round Tower (Rundetårn) on Købmagergade - A Copenhagen viewpoint & a top attraction Copenhagen
We are at The Round Tower (Rundetårn) located on the Købmagergade walking street in the Old Town part of Copenhagen in Denmark. Rundetårn (or The Round Tower as it is called in English) is one of Copenhagen´s top tourist attractions and one of the best places to get a breathtaking 360 degree view of the City of Copenhagen (one of Copenhagen´s best, if not the best viewpoint of the city). If you continue walking down Købmagergade you will eventually reach Copenhagen´s most famous walking Street , Strøget (Stroget).
Wiki write about Rundetårn, The Rundetårn (English: Round Tower) is a 17th-century tower located in central Copenhagen, Denmark.

The tower is part of the Trinitatis Complex which also provided the scholars of the time with a university chapel, the Trinitatis Church, and an academic library which was the first purpose-built facilities of the Copenhagen University Library which had been founded in 1482.
The Spiral walk leading to the top of the Round Tower is a unique piece of European architecture. This 209 meter long spiral walk winds 7 1/2 times around Rundtårns hollow core right up to the final stone stairs that lead the visitor ono the 360 degree viewing platform. This spiral walk is the buildings only connection between the tower and the library room (exhibition hall nowadays) ringer ceiling, tower and church.
About halfway up the tower you will arrive at the Library room. The Library room is a huge 900 square meter hall which nowadays is used for exhibitions and other cultural events throughout the year. This is also where Rundetårn´s shop and café are located. Your admission ticket to the Round Tower also gives you (the visitor) access to the exhibition hall.
The Ringer Ceiling or Bell Loft is located toward the top of The Round Tower.
The impressive original timber structure is still intact and visible on Ringer Ceiling of the Library Hall, where among other things you can see the big clock from 1731, and other things from the tower and church history.

you can among other things look out over the old Latin Quarter and spot the city's most famous buildings.
