Copenhagen really lives up to the lyrics of the famous song “Wonderful, Wonderful Copenhagen”. The colourful houses, patio restaurants and sailboats of the Nyhavn harbour, the famous roller coaster and gardens of Tivoli and the Little Mermaid statue sitting on a rock by the sea are sure to capture a traveller's heart. Strøget, which is over one kilometre long and Europe's longest car-free street, is a shopper's paradise.
One of the oldest capitals in Europe, Copenhagen is also a dynamic hub of modern art, architecture and design, with the collections of the Arken and Louisiana museums ranking at the top internationally. Royal splendour can be found at the Amalienborg castle and the Renaissance-era Kronborg Castle, also immortalised in Hamlet. The best venues for a night out can be found in the trendy area of Vesterbro and the multicultural Nørrebro.
