Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark, is a great place to spend a few days. Considered by many to be the coolest of the Nordic block, it’s not surprising really; far less isolated than its Scandinavian cousins, it sits comfortably atop the European continent, resting just above Germany. It still has easy access to all the trends and tricks of the mainland, while also maintaining its cool, laidback Nordic character. Known for its industrial-chic bars, colourful houses, fashion and the Christiania Freetown, Copenhagen offers an adventure for any willing traveller.
The centre of Copenhagen is a popular place to stay thanks to the abundance of sights and attractions. The grand City Hall Square (main square) is the focal point of the city, a popular location for celebration and events, from which you can walk into the precinct, visit the many Danish designer shops, photograph the Little Mermaid Statue and grab a terrace at the cosy Nyhavn.
Just like with the attractions, the hotel supply in the centre is very good. With a mixture of independent and big name chains, there’s plenty to choose from, whether you’re travelling as a family, couple or solo. Planning to go with your partner to Copenhagen? Take a look at the selection of romantic accommodation or get a spa hotel for a little pampering. There are so many possibilities.
This exclusive part of Copenhagen is made up of theatres, large expensive homes and a wide range of restaurants and cafes – great for those looking for a decadent break. Get to grips with the royals and walk up the famous hill and visit Valby Bakke, a former summer residence of the royal family.
Amager is a small island in the east of Copenhagen. You'll find a number of sites, attractions and transport hubs here, including include airport Kastrup, Field's – one of the largest shopping centers in Scandinavia, and Christianshavn – a neighbourhood inspired by the warehouses and canals of Amsterdam.
The hotel supply on the island is not very large, but does offer a number of fashionable business and spa hotels. Thanks to the Copenhagen Metro system, it’s easy to reach the centre.
