How to spend top weekend in Copenhagen - ideas on extraordinary attractions and sites

Night at Tivoli There are interesting hidden places, creative monuments and architectural landmarks in Copenhagen, which are usually not shown to travelers during standard excursions. The best way to fix such an injustice is to explore the little-known places of interest in the city oneself. The best way to start is to visit the tower of Tuborg . This tower is nothing but a giant model of a Tuborg beer bottle, which is well-known to all fans of this internationally famous beverage. The unusual monument is not new and was installed yet in 1888. The height of the bottle is 26 meters. In the end of the 19th century, the tower was located in the center of the city, and nowadays it can be found in the Hellerup neighborhood. The unusual monument has its own secret – there is a wonderful observation deck on top of the tower, from which visitors can enjoy magnificent panoramic views of the city.
