With its narrow lanes, classic architecture and elegant surroundings, Denmark’s capital city of Copehnhagen offers an enticing blend of old and new in abundance to impress even the most discerning of travellers.

A holiday to Copenhagen has something for everyone, whether you are marvelling at the 12th century houses transformed into hip boutiques and shops, sampling the culinary delights of a city bursting with world-famous gastronomic hotspots, or getting lost wending your way through the city alongside the lazy canal and through The King’s Garden.

For those visiting with younger travellers, the historic inner city Tivoli Park is an enjoyable relic of a bygone theme park era, or perhaps you’re keen to follow trends with a visit to the effortlessly cool Vesterbro district… whatever you do, Copenhagen will refresh and inspire.
