Copenhagen is one of Europe’s most enjoyable and liveable cities. Situated on the Oresund (Danish: Øresund) strait, with Sweden (Malmo) just minutes away by train, it is a link between mainland Europe and Scandinavia, and has a wealth of cultural and entertaining things to see and do. The city has a reputation for tolerance, the fascinating ‘free city’ of Christiania, a community of people who have tried to create an equal and just consensus-governed democracy for its people.
There is more to Copenhagen than Carlsberg and The Little Mermaid, and a trip to the wonderful Tivoli Gardens will leave the visitor in no doubt that this is a very special city. The Danish capital is also home to the world’s longest pedestrianised shopping street.
Norwegian flies to Copenhagen from Gatwick and Edinburgh.
easyJet flies to Copenhagen from Stansted, Gatwick and Manchester.
British airways flies daily from Heathrow.
KLM can fly you to Copenhagen, via Amsterdam from 15 UK airports.
Tip : Consider staying at a hotel in Malmö instead. You can sometimes make significant savings by staying in Malmö instead of Copenhagen and taking the train across the Oresund bridge. Malmö is a pleasant city in it’s own right and well worth a visit wherever you stay.
