Copenhagen, Denmark

Copenhagen draws visitors to Denmark with its brightly-coloured cafes and bars — with Nyhavn’s waterfront attractions always on the agenda for those fortunate enough to spend time here.

The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly, the food exquisite and the welcome warm. Yet for those keen to see the sights, Copenhagen has a great deal more to offer. There’s the Little Mermaid, for one thing, the famous bronze statue that demands to be photographed. Grab a snap before heading to Indre By, Copenhagen’s historic centre, where there’s always something to see, and attractions that appeal to all.

Set aside some time to explore Frederiksstaden, the 18th-century Rococo district that is home to, amongst other things, the Amalienborg Palace, the Danish Royal Family’s official residence here. There’s so much to see in Copenhagen — but more often than not you’ll be drawn back to Nyhavn, where the waterfront awaits and the drinks are always flowing.
