Where Is Copenhagen?

Denmark’s capital of Copenhagen sits pretty on the eastern shore of Zealand, partly on the island of Amager, and on several islets that link the two coastal islands. Part of the Øresund Region, Copenhagen faces the eponymous strait of water that separates Denmark from Sweden, and connects the North Sea with the Baltic Sea. Surrounding cities around Copenhagen include Malmö, Næestved, Odense, Esbjerg and Aarhus.

What Is Copenhagen Known for?

The city of Copenhagen is often touted as an amalgamation of both old and new, expressing medieval fairytale and cosmopolitan coolness. As the capital of Denmark, it is also known as the most populous city in the country, filled with all the best features that every metropolitan city requires; Michelin-star eateries, a dynamic nightlife scene and stunning panoramic views of the glittering city skyline. Often known as a city of contradictions, the so-called “City of Spires” does not only boast modern urban features, but also awe-inspiringly gorgeous historical details, including ornately designed bridges buzzing with lycra-clad cyclists and pristine waterways. An effortlessly cool cultural and commercial hub, Copenhagen was ranked first among Lonely Planet’s top ten cities to visit in 2019 and is one of the fastest growing metropolitan destinations in Europe.

A Quick Guide to Copenhagen

  • Tivoli Gardens: No matter how old you are, there is always a chance to unleash your inner child when you visit Tivoli Gardens. An amusement park that looks like it came straight out of a fairytale, Tivoli Gardens is so intricately and beautifully designed, that one of its veteran visitors, Mr. Walt Disney, found his inspiration to create Disney World. Plentiful with ornately designed architecture, lushly green and manicured gardens and historic buildings, there is plenty to soak in when you amble around the gardens, at your pleasurable leisure. Whether you simply walk around, ride on the hair-raising rollercoasters, or soak in the beauty of the open-air stage shows, there is plenty to do and much to see. For a more dream-like experience, take a trip at night, when the dreamy whirl of century-old amusement rides and thousands of colored lights creates a magnificent display.
  • The Little Mermaid: Step into the storybooks when you visit the famous fairytale statue of The Little Mermaid. One of the most renowned statues in the world, the famous erected bronze sculpture stands proud, displayed on a rock by the waterfront of the Langelinie promenade. Based on the eponymous fairytale by Danish icon, Hans Christian Andersen, the comparatively small and unassuming statue is of great importance and deemed a national treasure, with millions of tourists wishing to witness fairytale magic, right in front of their eyes.
  • Amalienborg Palace: Forget Buckingham Palace, Amalienborg Palace is where the royal party is at. A must-see for any royal history buff, Amalienborg Palace is the home of the Danish monarchy and emotes rich magnificent royal history from every corner. Watch the spectacular show of the Den Kongelige Livgarde (Changing of the Royal Guard) in the beautiful palace square, or take a journey through time as you soak in the regal beauty of the palace corridors. Unlike many other royal palaces, the Amalienborg Museum presents a spectacular insight into the private sectors of the most recent regents, as well as a comprehensive exhibit detailing the intricate history of the monarchy and all its traditions.

Popular Destinations Near Copenhagen

  • Dragør: Praised as one of the prettiest villages in Denmark, the fishing town of Dragør is only a mere 15 to 20 minute drive southeast of Copenhagen. Boasting all the modern amenities of a cosmopolitan city, Dragør also offers a slice of quaint and historic Danish life. Take a relaxing stroll on the cobbled streets and soak in the picturesque beauty of a village that looks like it was lifted from the pages of a storybook. Small thatched collages line the streets, as well as several pleasantly old-fashioned cafes and restaurants that overlook the harbor. Whether you experience the several summer art and music festivals or discover handmade crafts in the open-air markets, a trip to Dragør is an absolute must.
  • Malmö: Cross the Swedish-Danish border via the Øresund Bridge and visit the famously beautiful city of Malmö, that is so close in distance but another world beyond Copenhagen. Learn about the fascinating history of this city via a scenic canal cruise, browse the boutiques or consume copious amounts of “fika” in the many outdoor cafes that are dotted about on the stony streets. Whether you’re looking for a regal sight, like the famous Malmöhus Castle – Scandinavia’s oldest preserved Renaissance castle – or something a little bit more contemporary, such as the Moderna Museet Malmö, there is something for everyone in Malmö.

Best Neighborhoods in Copenhagen

  • Latin Quarter: Weave through the ribbons of shops, boutiques, bars, and restaurants that meander throughout the atmospheric streets of the Latin Quarter. Home of the city’s university, the Latin Quarter is buzzing with a youthful energy, that reflects its native student clientele. Whilst boasting several modern amenities, including hip nightclubs and trendy bars, the Latin Quarter is also home to several magnificent sights, such as Copenhagen’s sculpture-graced cathedral and King Christian IV’s 17th-century Round Tower. For a mix of modern and medieval, the Latin Quarter is an absolute must-see.
  • Vesterbro: Out-of-the-way, gritty, and super cool, Vesterbro is one of the most intriguing neighborhoods to be found in Copenhagen. Once a seedy quarter, Vesterbro is the very face of the sophisticated and laid-back living vibe, that permeates throughout the whole of the Danish capital city. With edgy student dives and laid-back tattoo artists, interspersed with charmingly quaint courtyard bars and restaurants, Vesterbro is an amalgamation of cool cosmopolitan and old-school elegance.
