MummyTravels’ guide to Copenhagen with kids
When you’re planning a family-friendly city break, Copenhagen might not be the first place you think of. But Scandinavia is perfect for travel with children.
Expect well-organised attractions, buggy-friendly entrances, decent changing facilities and an egalitarian attitude which means kids are usually as welcome as adults in this child-friendly city.
Most of my tips and experiences are aimed at travel with a toddler or young child, but do add your own suggestions for older kids in the comments.
