Copenhagen is one of the oldest capitals in Europe, while the Danish monarchy is the oldest in the world. It's been referred to as "the coolest" Nordic city, ranked as the world's happiest city for many years. All main attractions are at walking distance, so you will enjoy wandering around the cobbled streets.
Top attractions to visit in Copenhagen
The Danish capital has a long history that dates back to the 11th century, so it's full of fascinating historic sites, museums and architecture. There are three attractions you must visit in Copenhagen: Tivoli Gardens, the statue of The Little Mermaid, and the free town of Christiania. Other attractions you should add to your itinerary include the Kronborg Castle (known for Shakespeare's Hamlet), Christiansborg Palace, Amalienborg Palace, the National Museum and The National Gallery of Denmark.
The public transport in Copenhagen is integrated and includes the bus, metro and train network. It's an efficient way to get around the city as it operates 24/7.
The metro has two lines, M1 and M2, which connect the Nørreport Station with Christianshavn and Kongens Nytorv. The M2 line runs to Copenhagen airport. The S-train is the suburban railway network which includes seven lines.
There are three types of buses in Copenhagen, and they have labels with letters plus the route number. The A-buses are more frequent and make multiple stops around central Copenhagen. The S-buses are faster, make fewer stops and are the most used. The N-buses serve during night hours.
Using a Copenhagen taxi to get around the city is more expensive than public transport but convenient when you're not sure where to go. You can hail one on the street or call a local taxi company. Make sure the taxi charge by the meter.
