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.
