Slotsholmen For All Senses
All journeys begin somewhere - and they always add something to your experience. A visit to Slotsholmen is a historical journey in time, space and genre - a cultural journey of almost 1,000 years of Denmark's and Copenhagen's history.
On Slotsholmen, there are historical buildings and museums side by side, and the paths, nooks and corners of the journey are endless. At the same time, the area is a green oasis in the heart of Copenhagen with water, gardens and shadowy archways - for picnics, strolls and play. Last updated:: Wednesday, February 27, 2013
