Copenhagen is a compact big city packed with historic buildings lining its narrow cobbled streets. Here you will find a great mix of world-class gastronomy, beautiful architecture, award-winning design, clean harbor baths, the unique, free town of Christiania, and the seat of world’s oldest monarchy. 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 the ‘Bike City’ by the International Cycling Union – a title to which the several hundred bike lanes bear witness.

Do and see
Copenhagen is an old city with historic buildings, royal castles, beautiful parks and harbours, and plenty of attractions and activities to keep even the most eager tourist busy. The city centre is characterized by charming architecture and narrow curving streets. But within recent years Copenhagen has supplemented its architectural heritage with new, world-class architecture. It is easy to explore the city and get around, and many sights are within walking distance from one another. You can always catch a bus, metro to get around or rent a bike - and travel the Danish way.
Baths and beaches
In Copenhagen you are never far from a beach and during summer you can go for a swim in the many centrally located harbor baths. Amager Strandpark offers 4.6 kilometers of white sand beach, Islands Brygge Harbour Bath has five basins and Urban Beach offers sand, sweaty beats and drinks.
Visit Carlsberg – The Copenhagen Exbeerience
Visit Carlsberg is a must see when you are visiting Copenhagen. At Visit Carlsberg you can explore highlights such as the iconic Elephant Gate, marvelous draft horses, the world’s largest collection of unopened bottles and so much more. You might also like a beer tasting or a guided tour of the Carlsberg grounds. And why not end a day of fun in Jacobsen Brewhouse & Bar with a tasty bite along with a refreshing crafts brew? Once you have bought the entrance ticket, you get two free beers or soft drinks. In the summer time, the Brewer’s Courtyard is buzzing of beer, food and good vibes.
Nyhavn
This iconic postcard-ready sight is somewhat of an sudden splash of color, and a definite must-visit when in town. Stroll along the harbor and sit down for an evening drink in one of the many enticing establishments, most of which offer heating and blankets to make for a cozy time even at low temperatures.
Strøget
Start getting to know the Danish capital strolling down Stroeget - Europe's longest pedestrian street lined with stores, cafes and nightlife venues. Grab a bite from one of the food trucks you come across, and make sure to venture out onto the side streets to really feel the old city vibe.
Tivoli Gardens
Tivoli Gardens combines the best of both worlds: home to multiple roller coaster rides that will easily keep adventure-seekers occupied for at least a day, it is simultaneously a great location for a relaxing stroll among the beautiful gardens and public spaces. Christmas and Halloween are great times to visit - Tivoli goes all out on the decor, which will surely help you catch the holiday spirit.
Christiania
This city within a city is a self-proclaimed autonomous community, home to about 800 permanent residents who took over this abandoned military complex in 1971. The “freetown” they created was controversial at first, but with its heavy emphasis on tolerance, community and ecology it eventually gained recognition from the government and has since endured as a “social experiment.” The infamous “Pusher Street” can be a little intimidating, but beyond it lie the homes and gardens of the alternative and free-thinking residents.
The Little Mermaid (Den Lille Havfrue)
The Little Mermaid has become Copenhagen's most recognizable symbol, and visiting to snap a quick shot is certainly worth the detour from the city's core. This commemoration of Andersen's genius is conveniently located right next to the historic fortress of Kastellet, so make sure to walk through the green star-shaped area on your way back.
Danish Architecture Centre
Danish Architecture Centre (DAC) is Denmark’s leading exhibition venue for new architecture and urban development located in an old warehouse by the waterfront. DAC is offering changing exhibitions, talks, debates and cultural events. Enjoy lunch in the café and visit the bookshop with the finest selection of books on architecture and design.
Information
Airport
Copenhagen has the shortest distance from airport to city in Europe. It only takes 15 minutes by metro from the airport to Kongens Nytorv and 12 minutes by train to the Central Station in the city centre next to Tivoli. The train station is located in Terminal 3, and the metro station is right above it. Tickets may be purchased directly in Terminal 3 from self-service machines of a DSB ticket sales counter.
Public Transport
The Copenhagen Metro, which has been ranked the best in the world for several years running, runs between the airport and the city centre - useful for both tourists and locals. It takes just 15 minutes to get from the airport to Kongens Nytorv in the heart of Copenhagen, but you can also get off at Christianshavn or Nørreport. Web: www.m.dk S-trains - The bright red regional "S" trains connect the suburbs and the surrounding towns with the city. Web: www.dsb.dk Buses are efficient and use the same ticketing and pricing system as the S trains and the metro. www.moviatrafik.dk To make itineraries www.rejseplanen.dk is very helpful.
