Hotel arrival and free time to explore The Bike Capital of the World. Visit to Nyhavn, the Royal Castle, Christiania or the amusement park Tivoli. Overnight stay in the centre of Copenhagen
Cycling through Copenhagen on your bike is a fantastic way to get started. You will pass some of the famous sights such as the Little Mermaid and the famous Bellevue beach. In Dyrehaven, the Royal hunting grounds, you will be cycling on peaceful paths surrounded by century old trees and curious deer. You can make a refreshment stop at “Bakken” , the oldest amusement park in the world, before reaching your hotel in the Hørsholm area on the coast of Øresund.
Today you will be cycling along the coastline passing two of the finest museums in Denmark. In Rungsted you can visit Rungstedlund, the home of the Danish author Karen Blixen (world famous for “Out of Africa”), and in Humlebæk you can visit the Museum of Modern Art “Louisiana, famous not only for its exhibitions, but as well for its beautiful architecture and location. You will end up in Snekkersten, a former fishing village. Snekkersten is only 2 km from the centre of Helsingør, so after an easy day on the bike you might wish to spend the afternoon visiting the old borough with the impressive Kronborg Castle (the castle from Shakespeare´s play “Hamlet”).
If you missed Kronborg yesterday you will have the chance today. The highlights of the day might be the Danish Maritime Museum listed among “52 places to go in 2014” by New York Times. If you still have time, you can take the ferry (every 15 minutes, price 8 Euro for a roundtrip) to Helsingborg. From here you can take a round trip of approx. 35 kilometres along the coast to the beaches and small fishing villages and back through the Swedish forests and fields.
The route North out of Helsingør is unique with its views to the Swedish coast only 4 kms away. The large ships sail close to the coast, as you cycle along the coast towards Hornbæk. After a good lunch you continue along the coast on narrow lanes passing a couple of lighthouses with the beach far below you. Gilleleje, a lively fishing and yacht village, is the northernmost town on Zealand as well as the most important harbor and holiday resort on the coast of northern Zealand. Here you will find a lovely beach and a nice harbor where you can find great restaurants. You will stay at the lovely Gilleleje Beach Hotel on the outskirts of the village. It is a very beautiful and classical Danish beach hotel overlooking the sea and the food is of high standard.
Heading south towards Copenhagen you pass idyllic sceneries, lovely forests and wetlands with a rich birdlife. You will be impressed by the rich nature in a densely populated area close to the capital. You will be amazed how easy it is by bike to cycle from the green northern Zealand to the capital of Denmark. While the first 18 kilometres towards Farum are on winding paths and smaller roads, the last 20 kilometres are along the new “supercykelsti” (Super cycle path), that brings all the commuting cyclists to Copenhagen. When you come to Nørrebro, which is one of the most colourful neighbourhoods in Copenhagen, you have to slow down and be aware of all the different cyclists heading towards the city centre. Overnight stay in the centre of Copenhagen.
Check out or use the possibility to extend your stay with a few additional days in Copenhagen.
