About Copenhagen

Copenhagen is an old city with beautiful historic buildings and attractions. The ramparts and walls which surrounded the inner city were taken down in the middle of the 1800s. This has given the city charming architecture with narrow curving streets in the center combined with a pulsating shopping and café scene.

Over the past few years, Copenhagen has supplemented its architectural heritage with new, world-class architecture. Star architects both Danish, such as Bjarke Ingels, and international have built imposing buildings which look to the future. New districts and architecture have sprung up to mix well with the past.

Copenhagen is characterized by its relaxed spirit, and Copenhageners bike to work, relax with their families in parks, jump in the harbor pools in the summer, and actively participate in the many events held in the city.
