Copenhagen is the Danish capital, located on the eastern coast of the island of Zealand. Copenhagen is reputedly the happiest city in the world, so head to Scandinavia to get a taste of that happiness for yourself.

One of the most popular spots for visitors and locals alike is the Tivoli Gardens: one of the world's oldest and most-visited theme parks. With more than two dozen rides and a pleasure garden, you can easily spend the whole day wandering through this exciting village.

Take a tour through the Nyhavn, or "New Harbor," to discover Copenhagen's history. The brightly-colored houses and old wooden ships moored there are delightfully Danish, and you will even be able to see the places where Denmark's most renowned author, Hans Christian Andersen, once lived. Fans of his work must also visit the Little Mermaid statue by Edvard Erikson, which has now become the unofficial symbol of the city. Is that "Part of Your World" we hear you singing?

Copenhagen is also home to a fantastic shopping culture. Take a walk along Strøget for both high-end and local independent boutiques, as well as some of Copenhagen's most important historical buildings. As one of the largest pedestrian-only shopping streets in Europe, you'll be sure to find all of the fashionable Scandi items you are looking for.

Copenhagen is one of Scandinavia's central travel hubs. The Copenhagen Airport Kastrup welcomes flights from all over the world, while the Öresund Bridge connects the city to Malmö in Sweden across the Kattegat strait. In addition, train service and bus services on carriers such as Nettbuss and FlixBus make it easy to reach Copenhagen from nearby European cities.

Berlin

Berlin is one of the most exciting destinations in Europe for all travelers. One of the most unique landmarks in Berlin is its famous Brandenburg Gate, which was built for King Frederick Wilhelm II. The Gate now represents German unity, and it is perhaps the most photogenic landmark in the capital city. Modern art enthusiasts should visit the Urban Nation Museum for Urban Contemporary Art which is Germany’s first street art museum. Opened in 2017, the museum displays works from various graffiti artists from around the world and it’s located in Schöneberg, one of the city’s edgier areas. If you’re simply looking to enjoy a stroll, the Tiergarten, which spans 519 acres from central Berlin, will offer the relaxing vibes you need.

Berlin has an expansive and vibrant food scene with a good variety. Those looking for traditional German dishes should head over to Zur letzten Instanz, which is the oldest restaurant in Berlin. For a special twist, don’t hesitate to visit the Turkish Market, which offers amazing Turkish delicacies.

The main hub for intercity bus services is the Zentraler Omnibusbahnhof Berlin. For rail services, the Berlin Hauptbahnhof is the main train station. The Berlin Brandenburg Airport, located just outside of the city’s south-eastern border, is the main air travel hub of the city.
