Get a little steamy
To really warm things up, head to the glorious winter garden inside the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek. In this steamy glasshouse you can admire huge palm trees reaching up to the domed glass ceiling and spreading out accross scultpures and water features. This splendid museum houses both international and Danish collections of art and antiquity.

Gaze at the stars
There are no love seats at the Planetarium but nevertheless, this is the place to sit and stare at the heavens. Even on a cloudy day, you can look at the awesome domed screen and be mesmerised by the never-ending movements of the Universe.
Seal your fate in Copenhagen
