Copenhagen has something for everybody. Here you will find a great mix of world-class gastronomy, beautiful architecture, award-winning design, clean harbour baths, the unique free town Christiania and the world’s oldest monarchy.

Copenhagen is a compact big city, a world-class city loved and ranked very highly by leading travel and lifestyle magazines. It has been named one of the best cities to live in several times, and it was the first city in the world to be named ‘Bike City’ by the International Cycling Union – a title to which the several hundred bike lanes bear witness to. Surrounded by historic buildings, narrow curving streets, pulsating shopping and a happening nightlife it is easy to feel right at home in the Danish capital.
