HI

I am new to Denmark and have joined a firm as private cleaning expert in Copenhagen . . . Want to explore historical monuments in my free time but don't have much knowledge. So came to this forum for help and guidance.

Are there any amusement parks nearby. would love to take my kids there.

Hi

I visited Denmark last year and it was one of the best family trip... Do visit Skagen/. It is at, the northernmost tip of Denmark, you can walk out onto The Branch, a sand spit where the waters of the Kattegat and Skagerrak seas meet.

There's loads to see, do and explore in Copenhagen....let alone the rest of Denmark...far too much to list here. So this is just a starter:

Tivoli in the heart of Copenhagen is the obvious 'amusement park'. There's also loads of green space for the kids to enjoy, plus playgrounds etc in the city's parks e.g. Kongens Have. And there's the zoo too......

This page gives info about kid-friendly things to do in Copenhagen:

and this page gives an overview of historical stuff:

Do take the train to Roskilde and visit the Viking Ship Museum:

as well as ancient Roskilde cathedral, where many Danish monarchs are buried:

And it's well worth taking the train over the superb Oresund bridge to Malmo in Sweden. There's a fair bit of history in Malmo, as well as a really lovely green park and the 'Turning Torso' building.

Tivoli Gardens is a good start, if you are willing to travel to Jutland and your kids are into lego there is LegoLand in Billund.

Denmark is a pretty small country and you can see a lot in a short time frame, if you have access to a car you can get out of Copenhagen and see around. If you have kids the beaches around Grenen should appeal and I'm sure they'd have fun at Lokken dunes. In terms of historical monuments there are plenty of great viking sites in Denmark and this is a pretty good list of them:

My personal favourites Lindholm Høje and Frykat Viking Centre though Jelling stones are also quite interesting. You might also want to consider visiting Silkeborg Museum, there they have on display some bog people, which I'm sure kids would find fascinating;)
