Flights to Copenhagen
Visit Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark, the geographical and cultural bridge between continental Europe and Scandinavia. A city that is large enough to be called a metropolis and small enough for you to feel safe in it and find your way around easily.
Copenhagen for city explorers
Have your photo taken by the famous Little Mermaid statue. Visit one of the many castles, such as Rosenborg or Kastellet. Stop at Amalienborg and watch the changing of the royal guard at the stroke of noon. Relax in Tivoli Gardens. Wander round one of the city's excellent museums. In the evening, take a boat trip on the canals or enjoy a drink in the trendy Vesterbro district, where the locals meet over a beer in the many bars and pubs.
Copenhagen for lovers of art and architecture
Wander around the numerous art galleries and museums in the city and surrounding area. Visit the National Gallery of Denmark, the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek, the Arken Museum of Modern Art and the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art. World-famous architects such as Foster, Larsen and Libeskind have left their mark on the city, where modern buildings blend wonderfully with old castles and palaces.
Copenhagen for shopping
Copenhagen is a shopper's paradise. The city centre offers everything from souvenir shops and tiny one-off boutiques, to world-famous fashion and design outlets and department stores. Copenhagen boasts one of the longest pedestrian shopping areas in Europe, Strøget, which as well as the sights of the city offers excellent opportunities for shopping.
Copenhagen for kids
Be sure to visit Tivoli Gardens, where you will find one of the world's oldest amusement parks. The large city zoo is also well worth a visit. In Copenhagen you are never far from beaches and swimming spots. Or you may decide to visit Billund (217 kilometres away), the birthplace of Lego and home of the original Legoland.
