Look forward to the Danish capital, one of the most important cities in Northern Europe. It is a popular destination and attractive harbor city.

With a history dating back to 1043, you will discover historic landmarks and important buildings at every step. Definitely you should plan a visit to the Amalienborg Palace, where the royal family lives, as well as a stroll through the lively shopping street of Strøget, one of the longest pedestrian zones in Europe. You will be thrilled by the unique cycling route of the city. Every day 1.3 million kilometers are covered by bicycle in Copenhagen! Copenhagen has been one of the most bicycle-friendly cities in the world for years. The medieval town of Køge is situated on beautiful paths, mostly along the bay. In Kirkestraede you can admire the oldest timbered house in Denmark (1527). You will be cycling through the former hunting grounds of the Danish kings, where idyllic landscapes and forests will enchant you. Along the coast with beautiful beaches you cycle to Elsinore with Kronborg Castle. On fully car-free cycle paths, you reach Roskilde, whose cathedral has been a UNESCO World Cultural Heritage since 1995. In the evening you can either return by train or you cycle on the regional fast bicycle track. There are plenty of interesting places to spend the evening in Nyhavn. Nyhavn was originally a bustling trading port, where ships from all over the world started out. Today, the beautiful old houses are all renovated and fine restaurants dominate the old harbor.

Copenhagen has already received several awards as the "most livable city in the world".

With its gabled houses, narrow streets and elegant little towers, Copenhagen has preserved a lovley small town atmosphere. The pretty and kempt Copenhagen is one of the greenest European capitals: a large part of the city center consists of pedestrian zones, there are strict guidelines against pollution and often more bicycles than cars on the streets. Green spaces - among them the world famous Tivoli - are in abundance, and in the summer time, street cafés and restaurants are in high demand.
