Copenhagen is both a land of sleepy canals, cobblestone streets, and colorful townhouses, and a cosmopolitan hub of design and dining. Lose yourself in an industrial-chic nightclub in Vesterbro’s Meatpacking District. Shop for vintage duds on bustling Jægersborggade. Bike through Amager’s sweeping forests. Whatever you’re looking for, you can find it Copenhagen.

Copenhagen has more bicycles than people, and offers plenty of opportunities to relax in parks and cozy cafes after an afternoon’s pedaling. The metro provides good transport links, and the Kastrup airport is easily reachable from the center of this hip, vibrant, and breathtakingly modern city.
