Copenhagen is the modern metropolis that never forgot its history. It's a captivating, friendly city where your senses can roam and where there's always something wonderful around the next corner.
And then there are the royal castles, the parks, the squares and the plazas. Not to mention our precious pearl, Nyhavn, the New Harbor. The actual founding of the city, though, dates to 1167 A.D., when Bishop Absalon built a fortress on Slotsholmen
The arts are thriving and waiting to be enjoyed at Copenhagen's many museums, galleries, and theaters. At the Tycho Brahe Planetarium, you can experience breathtaking natural phenomena. A fairy-tale universe unfolds for you at Tivoli Gardens, where amusements, concert performances, and a profusion of flowers await.
Year round, there's always something going on in Copenhagen, and all within easy walking distance. Enjoy the many little ornaments and curlicues of its architecture, and the old-fashioned signs that hang from storefronts telling you from far away what's being sold inside. Take time to get into the details.
