For rich history and abounding culture, Denmark’s charismatic capital of Copenhagen is the place to be. Wander through the city’s historic centre to the 17th century Stock Exchange, Christianborg Palace, cathedral and 19th century Theatre Royal. Around the magnificent Amalienborg Palace is an elegant quarter of 18th century buildings that should not be missed. If you like fairy-tales about kings and queens and spooky ghost stories - a visit to the Danish castle is just for you.
Scandinavians like to make the most of their long summer evenings. Join them in Copenhagen’s Tivoli Gardens for a wonderful and romantic evening, experience a ‘real’ Valhalla dinner, or just watch the sun set over the western sea. Alternatively, make for the 17th century waterfront, canal and entertainment district of Nyhavn, packed with partying people, restaurants, and bars.
Danish Design is famous the world over, and all over the country you will find a wide array of articles by Danish designers. Porcelain, glass, jewellery and hi-fi equipment are some of the items that have helped to put Denmark’s name on the map. Visit Copenhagen’s Strøget, is the longest pedestrian shopping street in Europe and is packed with cool shops, cosy cafes, historic monuments and stylish Scandinavians.
