Let Copenhagen Welcome You

Copenhagen is a metropolis with a small-town feel. It is compact, safe, ecofriendly and efficient, and with its extensive green areas, a harbour so clean that you can swim in it, and a world-famous bike culture, it is a city for life. It is not a coincidence that Copenhagen has been named World’s Most Livable City and the Danes have been ranked World’s Happiest People numerous times.

The Danish capital is built on respect for the past, but focused on the future and offers a wide selection of modern meeting facilities, state-of-the-art hotels, shopping, culture, sights and activities. Get inspired by award-winning New Nordic cuisine, an abundance of attractions and the impressive mixture of historic and modern Danish design and architecture.

The city is comprised of different neighborhoods, each with their own distinct qualities. Explore Copenhagen by city area – take the bike or hop on a canal boat - and visit Copenhagen’s city center, hipster Vesterbro, the trendy Meatpacking District, multicultural Nørrebro, family-friendly Østerbro, the posh Frederiksberg, the maritime Christianshavn & Holmen or the alternative Freetown Christiania. Copenhagen is part of the Greater Copenhagen area – the largest city region in Scandinavia with a total population of 3.8 million. In the Greater Copenhagen area, you will find tranquil countryside settings, small quaint villages and a breathtaking coastline, forming a sharp contrast to the city center’s bustling core.
