Castles and Palaces
There are plenty of castles and interesting buildings to discover in Copenhagen, and with your bike, it is easy to hop between them alongside the canals.
Rundetaarn, a 17th-century tower, the royal Christiansborg Palace and Rosenberg Castle are all worth a visit but with only one day in Copenhagen, research and pick which ones you would most like to spend your time exploring. Keep an eye out on the rooftops and spires throughout the city, they are pretty unique, and I quite enjoyed spotting them while cycling around.

Local Food and Drink
Expenses can quickly add up in Copenhagen but get the local flavours by having lunch in the city rather than back on the cruise ship.
Try some of the local delicacies which include Smørrebrød, the Danish word for an open sandwhich, topped with local produce and mainly with fish such as shrimp or smoked salmon. If you are after a lighter snack, then grab a boiled red hot-dog which you can easily find at stalls in the city as well. If you are a fan of beer, then the Heineken experience might be worth checking out.
