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.

COPENHAGEN TRAVEL GUIDE
Danish, although most of the population is English speaking.
WHAT TO EAT
Smørrebrød (an open-faced sandwich with fish or meat), fiskefrikadeller (fish cakes), or hot dogs from a Pølsevogn (sausage truck). You could also try some dishes from the New Nordic Wave culinary movement at restaurants like Noma or Kadeau (if you’re willing to splurge).
WHAT TO BRING BACK
conic turtle-shaped chocolates from Skildpadder, Lego bricks (Denmark is its birthplace!), books by Hans Christian Andersen (author of The Little Mermaid), or some hand-painted Royal Copenhagen porcelain.
Copenhagen is home to two of the world’s oldest amusement parks! The second oldest park, Tivoli Gardens, is in the centre of the city and was the inspiration for Walt Disney to create his own.
