Where to stay in Copenhagen
From the canals of Nyhavn to the spires of steeples rising from old churches, Copenhagen has a kind of fairytale quality. Indeed, the Danish capital was once home to one of the greatest fairytale writers of all time, Hans Christian Andersen, who is known for such famous works as 'Thumbelina' and 'The Ugly Duckling'. His story 'The Little Mermaid' inspired a whimsical sculpture that now sits in the harbour and has come to symbolise the city.
Copenhagen offers more than just myth, however - it is a thriving, contemporary city. Things to do in Copenhagen range from the rides of Tivoli Gardens to a tour of the modern Danish Design Centre. Booking a hotel room in Copenhagen could place you near the Amalienborg Palace where the Danish Royal Family winter, or at the waterside, where outdoor cafes beckon in the summer. You don't need to worry about the cold either, as Copenhagen enjoys relatively moderate temperatures for such a northern locale.

Sightseeing in Copenhagen
Take a Copenhagen city break and explore this inspiring Scandinavian capital. By day, the Danish first city offers cutting-edge design, culture and urban relaxation, while by evening Copenhagen buzzes excellent modern restaurants and nightspots.
Copenhagen is made for exploring on foot or two wheels. Bike paths and cobbled, no-vehicle walkways stretch from trendy Vesterbro in the west across a series of canals to the upscale Christianshavn district (and its alternative-lifestyle enclave of Christiania). In between is Strøget, Europe’s longest pedestrian shopping area whose shops and museums form the heart of the City Centre, leading all the way to the inlet of Inderhavnen (Inner Harbour). Up-and-coming Nørrebro, just north of Strøget and along a canal, and the leafy district of Frederiksberg to the west are perfect for an afternoon stroll.
Copenhagen’s chefs are redefining Scandinavian cooking, sourcing exclusively local products, going organic and returning Nordic cooking to its roots by sifting though their grandmothers' cookbooks. Restaurants cluster in the centre off the streets of Frederiksberggade and Købmagergade. Up-and-coming neighbourhoods for eating include Kødbyen, the meatpacking district in Vesterbro. Don’t forget to try one of Copenhagen’s 14 Michelin-starred restaurants – the highest number in Scandinavia – including Noma, hailed by Restaurant magazine as the third best restaurant in the world.
