It is famous for being one of the cleanest and greenest cities in Europe, largely using wind and solar power, as well as heating systems which recycle waste materials. Some of its most famous tourist attractions include the Amalienborg Palace, the residence of the Royal family, the Frederiksstaden, an 18th century Rococo district, the Christiansborg Palace, the Tivoli Gardens, the Rosenborg Castle and the Little Mermaid’s small bronze statue, created in 1913, and located by the Langelinie promenade. Copenhagen is also renowned for its large number of museums, including the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek, a fine arts museum where you can admire old Mediterranean sculptures as well as iconic 19th century French and Danish artworks, or the Design Museum, an exhibition space where you can learn everything about the history of Danish and international (industrial) design.
