Copenhagen is a small and welcoming capital city, home to vibrant arts and music scene and a lively, friendly cafe culture. Flights into Copenhagen Airport (CPH) land just a few miles from the city center near the town of Kastrup - from here, it's just a 12 minute journey into Copenhagen by train of via the Copenhagen Metro.
Get your bearings by exploring Copenhagen from the observation deck of the iconic Round Tower, one of the city's most recognizable buildings. Here in the middle of Indre By, the historic city center, you're surrounded by excellent shops, medieval buildings and quaint churches.
Christiansborg, a royal palace which also houses the parliament, is well worth a visit, as is the National Museum which hosts very interesting displays on all aspects of Danish history.
Art lovers won't want to miss the Danish National Gallery, while the Danish Design Centre in Indre By pays homage to Denmark's reputation as a leader in design.
Hints and Tips
Don't miss the bohemian enclave of Christiania, on the artificial island of Christianshavn. Infamous for its liberal lifestyle, there are hundreds of idiosyncratic buildings and beautiful murals here, and regular walking tours will show you the main sights.
If you have time to spare, why not cross into Sweden The Swedish city of Malmo lies just 15 miles away across the stunning Oresund bridge.
