Copenhagen Travel Guide

Copenhagen sits at the easternmost point of Denmark. Separated from Sweden by the Oresund Strait and less than 20 miles from Malmo, this beautiful city is the capital of the Kingdom of Denmark

Set amidst cobblestone streets and picturesque canals, Copenhagen is a timeless combination of fairytale magic and modern day cool.


One of the very best ways to enjoy Copenhagen is the way most locals do – by bike. There are almost 250 miles of bike lanes here and biking is a way of life.

Head to Nyhavn, a 17th century waterfront and canal district that is full of colour, and character with its many bars and cafes. Enjoy a meal at one of the restaurants or grab a drink and watch the boats go by.

Visit the little mermaid, one of Copenhagen’s most recognisable images. Created from a story by one of Denmarks most famous sons, Hans Christian Andersen, she is just a short stroll away from the wharves. This beautiful statue has been staring longingly toward the shore for over 100 years, hoping to catch a glimpse of her beloved prince.

Discover real-life royalty at Amalienborg, the Royal Palace and home to the Danish Royal Family. This is the oldest European monarchy and one of the most popular anywhere in the world.

With its fairytale history, beautiful architecture and unselfconscious passion for small, beautiful moments, Copenhagen may just have discovered the true meaning of life.
