Sights to see for a week in Denmark & Sweden?

I'm landing in Copenhagen July 26th, and flying out of Stockholm August 1. In those 6 days, what must I not miss? It will be my first time in the region.
I'm an American traveling to these two countries for the first time as the end of a longer trip. I have a decent budget, and don't aim to go too low (staying in hotels not hostels) but not too high either (no Michelin starred restaurants for me). I haven't planned much beyond finding a hotel in Copenhagen, and checking the rail system to get me to Stockholm.
As a traveler, I like scenic views and natural areas to photograph, bustling markets and thriving neighborhoods, street art, and day trips to unique and off-the-beaten path towns & sights. I'm also an adventurous foodie and would love to try as much local cuisine as possible. For example, highlights from my favorite trips abroad include paragliding over the Sacred Valley in Peru, searching for tarantulas in the Costa Rican rain forest, tasting the sacre torte in Vienna, the Anne Frank House in Amsterdam, and going to a locals' speakeasy in Berlin.
So during this week, what can I not miss in Denmark and on the way to Stockholm? Thank you.
(Side note, I'm already aware that things tend to shut down in the summer in Europe, so recommendations to places that for sure are going to be open are very much appreciated.)
