Captivating and charismatic, Copenhagen charms with Nordic character. Castles and canals complete the coastal views of this 11th century city, while bohemian neighbourhoods and environment-first urban design keep you coming back for more, year after year. Take a dip in Copenhagen’s harbour (one of the few in the world clean enough for a swim!) before settling in for a sumptuous seafood supper.
