Strøget (shopping street)
Amalienborg is a must for anyone with an interest in Denmark's royal history and the lives of the royals, who today still live in the palace. At the museum you get to know the history of the royal house, and from the beautiful castle square, which is a 5-minute walk from the hotel, you can see the Life Guards' changing of guard at 12pm.

Free Town Christiania
Christiania is a hippie sanctuary in the middle of Copenhagen, and one of Denmark's biggest tourist attractions. The controversial area is loved by many, but has also been the focus of heated debate, due to the residents' liberal attitude to weed & individual lifestyles.
Today, many of the original inhabitants, still live in the collectively governed village, and the area has an unmistakable 70’s aura. About 1000 people live permanently in Christiania, and every year the free town is visited by about half a million guests. The free town is a small 14 minute walk from the hotel.
