Copenhagen City Guide Introduction

Copenhagen City Guide Introduction - Copenhagen, Denmark

Ahh, Copenhagen. The slogan "Wonderful Copenhagen" may tell part of the story, but the city's appeal can't be reduced to wonder. Many are drawn to Copenhagen for its cozy compactness, its cobblestone-lined pedestrian streets, and its quiet cafes. Others, confronted with the exceedingly well-designed objects on display in countless shops, fall in love with Copenhagen as a style capital.

Copenhagen's appeals are not merely atmospheric, however. The kid-magnet amusement park Tivoli competes with excellent museums (the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek and the Louisiana are especially strong draws) and Christiansborg Palace as top-notch local attractions. Take a stroll, snack on a smørrebrød, and soak in Copenhagen's stylish spirit.
