About Copenhagen

Copenhagen is an ancient city, full of beautiful historic buildings and many points of interest. The ramparts and walls surrounding the centre of the city were demolished around the middle of the nineteenth century. This allowed the city to assume the peculiar architectural structure characterised by narrow stone streets that lead directly to the city centre and which are the background to numerous shops and bars.

In recent years, Copenhagen's historic architectural heritage has been enriched with modern and contemporary buildings. An example of these are those designed by the Danish and French architects Bjarke Ingels and Jean Nouvel, who gave a new touch to the old-fashioned style of the city. At the same time, many districts have been modernised as well.

Copenhagen is also known for its relaxing atmosphere. Citizens go to work by bike, they like to go out with their families, spend an afternoon in one of the city's many parks in the company of their friends, take a bath in one of the many pools in the harbour during the warmer months and take an active part in the events that animate the city throughout the year.

The Copenhagen Metro, which has been ranked the best in the world for several years, 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.
