Play on top of the iconic towers of Copenhagen
If you head to Fælledparken, a large park in central Copenhagen, you can mix a bit of (alternative) sightseeing with a lot of fun. Let your kids climb five of the most notable towers of Copenhagen, or take part in some of the towers' interactive plays. In the meantime you can enjoy a cup of coffee (aka. the liquid gold of parenthood) from one of the small coffee carts.
