CULTURE, CITY LIFE AND CHARMING
QUARTERS – COPENHAGEN HAS IT ALL
Take a dive into the clean city harbor baths
in the summer, and enjoy the beautiful
lights and cozy atmosphere in the winter.
Copenhagen is marvelous, unique, and offers
a wide range of adventures for everyone
who comes to visit the Danish Capital.
A visit to Copenhagen must include a stroll
on the harbor pier that hosts a variety of
the significant Copenhagen sights. From
our famous national symbol – The Little
Mermaid – who annually attracts tourists
from all over the world to the beautiful
Amalienborg Palace. Denmark has the
oldest monarchy in the world and the Palace
is our popular monarch, Her Majesty,
Queen Margrethe II’s residence.
Copenhagen has large number of impressive
ancient buildings but the city also has
a great tradition for modern architecture.
One of our landmark buildings is Henning
Larsen’s Masterpiece, the Danish Opera
house, is situated just across the inner
harbor facing Amalienborg. Copenhagen
is indeed the city where the past and the
future sparkingly meet.
To any foodie, Copenhagen is also the
ideal place to visit. The city is Scandinavia’s
gastronomic capital with vast amount of
different culinary opportunities. Our town
has everything from fine dining restaurants
like the world known Michelin starred
restaurant Noma over modern hipster
style cafes to old fashion taverns and pubs
serving cold beers and traditional Danish
“smørrebrød”. One of the essential places
to experience a genuine Danish “smørrebrød”
lunch is in Nyhavn – the 17th century
Visitors will also find that Copenhagen offers
exciting art exhibitions, a lively and
diverse music scene and a vibrant night
life, for example in The Meat Packing District
– an old industrial area transformed
into a cultural melting pot of innovative
galleries, modern restaurant and vivacious
night clubs. When you need a break from
the city pulse, visit one of the numerous
historical churches that are located all over
the nation’s capital or stop by a cultural exhibition
in one of our numerous museums
or public libraries.
If you are visiting Copenhagen with your
family, you have come to the ideal place.
A popular attraction to both younger and
elder visitors is the old and stunning amusement
park, Tivoli, with is breathtaking
garden, small delightful stalls and a great
number of entertaining rides.
As the Mayor of Culture and Leisure in Copenhagen
I am very proud to welcome tourists
and visitors to the capital and I hope
that the city’s lovely sights and unique surroundings
will make your visit memorable.
I wish you all a warm and sincere welcome
to Copenhagen, I hope you will enjoy your
stay – and hopefully be back again soon.
Carl Christian Ebbesen
Mayor of Culture and Leisure, Copenhagen
