Things to do in Copenhagen

The capital of Denmark, Copenhagen is both a charming small town and a bustling big city. The city is divided into multiple districts, each with their own vibe and appeal. For a large city, Copenhagen is surprisingly safe. Capital cities can be hard to get around, but this is not the case with Copenhagen. You can take advantage of their extensive public transit system, bike rentals or see the city just by walking. If you do get turned around, a friendly local is sure to help you out. Copenhagen is dense in culture and attractions. Gaze fondly at colorful buildings while strolling along the canal. Take a canal tour and see it all from the water. Visit The Little Mermaid statue, Nyhavn, Tivoli Gardens, Christiania. Check out museums on everything from art to film to design. Copenhagen, while rich in history, is also very current. Trendy even. The clean lines and abstract shapes of the fashion and furniture you'll find while shopping is mirrored in the modern architecture that defines the city. There's really nothing like contemporary Danish design. Danes are some of the happiest people on earth, so it wouldn't be a trip to Copenhagen without trying to gather some happiness for yourself. On a chilly evening, experience what Copenhagen residents call "hygge". It loosely translates to coziness. Warm drinks, thick socks, fireplaces crackling - in short, comfort. Put on your walking shoes, or bike helmet and get out and explore this diverse and beautiful city.
