Copenhagen

A Brief Description

A one thousand year history written by ambitious kings, inspirational artists and celebrated designers awaits you in the medieval streets, 17th-Century canals and modernist architecture of Copenhagen.

From its origin as a humble fishing village, to its heyday as the glittering capital of the Danish Empire, to its current position as one of the world’s premier design capitals and Scandinavia’s pre-eminent city, the stories and characters of Copenhagen’s history are there to be discovered in its sumptuous palaces, copper-roofed town houses and atmospheric cobbled squares.

Though Copenhagen never stands still, it always has time to appreciate its past. With a past as rich and fascinating as this, that’s hardly a surprise.
