Families with small children will find a lot of exciting playgrounds in local neighbourhoods and in city parks. Ask you guide about the Towers Playground. It’s a hit with children because they can try and recognise some of the city’s towers.

One of the towers is the Round Tower. The old observatory in Copenhagen city is obvious to visit with children, all children adore the Round Tower.
