Copenhagen is an old city with beautiful historic buildings and attractions. The ramparts and walls which surrounded the inner city were taken down in the middle of the 1800s. This has given the city charming architecture with narrow curving streets in the center combined with a pulsating shopping and café scene.
Over the past few years, Copenhagen has supplemented its architectural heritage with new, world-class architecture. Star architects both Danish, such as Bjarke Ingels, and international have built imposing buildings which look to the future. New districts and architecture have sprung up to mix well with the past.
Copenhagen is characterized by its relaxed spirit, and Copenhageners bike to work, relax with their families in parks, jump in the harbor pools in the summer, and actively participate in the many events held in the city.
Visit Carlsberg – The Copenhagen Exbeerience
Visit Carlsberg is a must-see when you are visiting Copenhagen. Visit a legendary landmark where you can use and indulge your senses. Smell the ingredients, see beautiful architecture, taste world-famous Danish beer in many styles, and get a feeling of what Carlsberg is all about. Enjoy your lunch in our “hyggelig” Jacobsen Brewhouse & Bar and visit our new large Brand Store. It is just 20 minutes from the City Hall Square.
This iconic postcard-ready sight is somewhat of an sudden splash of color, and a definite must-visit when in town. Stroll along the harbor and sit down for an evening drink in one of the many enticing establishments, most of which offer heating and blankets to make for a cozy time even at low temperatures.
Located in Vesterbro (Copenhagen's favorite night out area) Mikkeler is a bar and craft brewery that simply can't be missed. Craft beer lovers will have a fabulous time beer tasting, and the cozy atmosphere with lit candles and small tables creates a pleasantly intimate atmosphere.
Good to know
The Copenhagen Metro, which has been ranked the best in the world for several years running, runs between the airport and the city centre - useful for both tourists and locals. It takes just 15 minutes to get from the airport to Kongens Nytorv in the heart of Copenhagen, but you can also get off at Christianshavn or Nørreport. Web: www.m.dk
S-trains - The bright red regional "S" trains connect the suburbs and the surrounding towns with the city. Web: www.dsb.dk
Buses are efficient and use the same ticketing and pricing system as the S trains and the metro. www.moviatrafik.dk
