Your Guide to Modern Copenhagen

Copenhagen is your gateway to some of the best Scandinavia has to offer. Whether it be first-class restaurants serving up that popular New Nordic Cuisine, shopping for some of the best design pieces out there or simply getting swept away by stunning architecture, Copenhagen is your ideal city break destination.

Within a 30 minute-radius of Copenhagen, you will find world-renowned Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, the majestic renaissance castle Frederiksborg Slot, and Hamlet's Kronborg Castle in Elsinore.

Further, Copenhagen is home to popular attractions Tivoli Gardens, The Little Mermaid and colourful Nyhavn.

We recommend starting your Copenhagen city break with a canal tour to give you the best start to your trip. For your choice of accommodation, Copenhagen boasts 4-star hotels with a view and intimate boutique hotels. All centrally located. And that's another great thing with Copenhagen: it is easy to get around by foot!

"Bicycles throng the streets, whether briefly parked or being boarded by countless legs swinging over saddles. Everywhere you look are Scandinavian beauties nonchalantly pedaling their way around" Flora Baker, floratheexplorer.com
