Copenhagen is the capital of Denmark. This city is big enough to be a metropolis with shopping districts, a big cultural offer and nightlife and yet, it is small enough to be intimate, safe and easy to navigate. Overlooking the Øresund strait with Sweden just minutes away, it is a cultural and geographic link between mainland Europe and Scandinavia.
Here is where old fairy tales blend with flashy new architecture and world-class design; where warm jazz mixes with cold electronica from Copenhagen's basements.
Life science, information technology and transport are important sectors and research & development plays a major role in the city's economy. Its strategic location and excellent infrastructure with the largest airport in Scandinavia located 14 minutes by train from the city centre, has made it a regional hub and a popular location for events and conventions.
Copenhagen has repeatedly been recognized as one of the cities with the best quality of life. It is also considered one of the world's most environmentally friendly cities. The water in the inner harbour is so clean that people can swim in and 36% of all citizens go to work by bicycle.
When visiting the mermaid, make sure you have lunch at the nearby restaurant Toldboden (Nordre Toldbod 24). Very nice.
Danish people are nice. Copenhagen is fun. Not on my top 5, but it is for sure nice.
