A 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 8 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 harbor channel. 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.
