The Paris of the North

Copenhagen Introduction Copenhagen Introduction

Scandinavia’s much loved and vibrant city, Copenhagen is home to a world-class harbour, buzzing restaurants, an engaging art and culture scene and the oldest monarchy in the world. Copenhagen is routinely voted as a city with the best quality of life, and one of the most liveable cities in the world. It is also considered one of the most eco-friendly cities in the world on route to being the greenest capital.

Recognized by three distinct recreational lakes, used for cycling, walking, or people watching, Copenhagen successfully balances its green areas with bustling city living.
The harbour, an attraction in itself also provides the perfect setting to take in the ships, the Sound (waterway between Denmark and Sweden) and landmark Little Mermaid statue. In summer try going for a swim (the harbour water is that clean!).

Equally impressive as the harbour is Copenhagen’s world class shopping. Visitors can stroll along the Stroget, the longest pedestrian street in the world. No need to say this shopping haven caters to all budgets and tastes. Travellers can also head to the former red light district Vesterbro, which is now one of the coolest places in Copenhagen with lounge bars, nightclubs, retro-kitsch clothes shops and trendy award winning design.

Travellers will also enjoy the historic centre and first rate museums and galleries including Denmark’s National Museum, and National Gallery which is sure to delight.

Copenhagen’s unique location also means that exploring the best of Denmark (Helsingor, Roskilde and the beach coast) is possible. Although it’s the largest city in Denmark, Copenhagen is a modern city whose fascinating maritime past coexists with a commitment to modern design, architecture and environmental friendly ways. In short Copenhagen is a welcoming “green” city for all visitors.
