Why Visit Denmark's Copenhagen

Those wondering what is the capital of Denmark all about, in simple terms, it is a cultural and geographic link between mainland Europe and Scandinavia. This city seems to have it all, and it's no surprise Copenhagen is called one of Europe's most enjoyable and livable cities. With shopping, culture, and nightlife beyond excellence, it has still kept the charm of a cozy small city with an intimate and friendly atmosphere.

Cycling is one of the best ways to explore the city and you surely will never feel like a second class citizen riding a bicycle in the world's most bike-friendly city.

The coastline of Copenhagen, Denmark is over 7,000 km (4,350 mi), thus you can never be far away from a beautiful white beach. No wonder Denmark is a country with the happiest people!

Copenhagen is definitely the place to be for a dining experience. Here you can find anything from pastry, open-faced sandwiches to Michelin-starred restaurants to highlight your day. If you are up to cultural and historical education we recommend a few 'must visit' museums: The National Gallery of Denmark, the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, The Open Air Museum, and the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek.

The city is also known to be the historical and spiritual home of the Vikings. In Copenhagen, you can even be a Viking for a day and experience a blend of modern architecture and history with Viking spirit!

One more thing you must know before going on Copenhagen sightseeing, it is probably greener than you! Being The European Green Capital of 2014 it is a highly successful role model for green economy.
