Copenhagen, Denmark

Vibrant Copenhagen, Denmark's capital, sits on the coastal islands of Zealand and Amager. Originally a Viking fishing village established in the 10th century, Copenhagen today is one the world's most liveable cities. Its open spaces and lively street life, along with city planning favoring cyclists and pedestrians, encourage inhabitants to enjoy a lifestyle with an emphasis on community, culture and cuisine.

 

Copenhagen is a highly cultured city, offering highlights including the National Gallery of Denmark, which holds 240,000 works of art, the Ny Carlsberg Museum with its spectacular collection of ancient sculptures from Egypt, Rome and Greece and Rosenborg Castle, where the Danish Crown Jewels are exhibited.

 

Life in Copenhagen is lived on the seat of a bicycle: everybody rides one. Danes cycle in sun, rain or snow; they bike to work, to school, to bring the kids to kindergarten, to shop for groceries and to social gatherings. Discover one of Europe's true treasures in Copenhagen.
