Vacation, business or Erasmus?
Whatever the reason, the capital of Denmark is always an excellent destination!
If you’re going on holiday, be sure to visit the Little Mermaid Statue, one of the city’s most famous attractions. We also recommend a visit to the Tivoli Park and the port of Nyhavn (one of the most photographed docks in Europe), where you can choose various boat trips: the so-called Canal Tours. Rosenborg Castle and Amalienborg Palace are also obligatory visits. Your itinerary should also include the Museum of Denmark, Rosenborg Castle and, of course, the Palace of Christiansborg, the seat of the executive, legislative and judicial powers of Denmark, and the venue used by the royal family at official events.
Feel like shopping? Spend a few hours at Strøget Street, where you’ll find all sorts of shops. From the big luxury brands to inspiring souvenir shops. Strøget Street is considered one of the oldest pedestrian streets in Europe.
If you are on business, remember that Copenhagen is a major economic hub for many companies and international bodies. Most Danes speak fluid English, which is perhaps one of the reasons for the presence of so many multinational companies. In 2008, Copenhagen was considered the 4thEuropean City of the Future (in the top 50) by the magazine fDi Magazine. This is not surprising given the innovations that local government is developing with regard to the Internet of Things / Smart Cities. Copenhagen also ranks 36thon the Foreign Policy magazine and A.T. Kearney consultancy Global Cities Index. The capital of Denmark plays an important role in the areas of information technology and the import and export of products.
If you are in Copenhagen to study, we remind you that the city has dozens of renowned institutions including the University of Copenhagen, the IT University of Copenhagen and Metropolitan University College. In addition, Copenhagen is known for its bars, pubs and nightclubs offering of leisure and fun for students.
Copenhagen also has a modern and efficient public transport system. It has the largest airport in Scandinavia, which is only 15 minutes by train from the city centre. Our proposal? Whatever the reason, schedule your winter trip to Copenhagen and get to know this amazing Scandinavian city up close! It’s just one direct flight away from Faro.
