Think Hans Christian Andersen’s storyland meets modern-day technology and design, and you’ve got a grasp of Copenhagen’s culture. Denmark’s capital stays true to its traditional roots while throwing a bit of contemporary motif in the mix. Whatever the reason for booking flights to Copenhagen – quiet resorts or eclectic nightlife, the opera or the cinema, castles or sidewalk cafes – you can find it here.
Copenhagen is flanked with narrow streets and little houses under a skyline of tall modern buildings. Between the contemporary architecture and the 17th-century buildings lies the greenest city in Europe. It’s not likely you’ll fly to Copenhagen on a hybrid jetliner, but once you’re in the city air-pollution laws take flight. Copenhagen enforces strict commuter rules – bikes outnumber cars and the Tivoli (one of the world famous “green spaces”) is a central attraction to Copenhagen travelers. Take a deep breath after your Copenhagen flight at one of the city’s open-air restaurants and cafes.
