Copenhagen is an old city with beautiful historic buildings and attractions. The ramparts and walls, which surrounded the city center, 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 vibrant 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 French Jean Nouvel, have built imposing buildings which have been inspired by the future. New districts and architecture have sprung up to emerge with the past.
Copenhagen is known for its relaxing atmosphere, and Copenhageners cycle to work, hang out with their families and friends in one of the many parks, jump in the harbor pools in the summer, and actively participate in the many events held in the city.
