Districts

Understand

Copenhagen is one of Europe's most enjoyable cities. Situated on the Oresund strait, with Sweden just minutes away by train, it is a link between mainland Europe and Scandinavia, and has a wealth of cultural and entertaining things to see and do. The city has a reputation for tolerance, with a famous red light area and the fascinating 'free city' of Christiania, a community of drop-outs from society. There is more to here than Carlsberg and The Little Mermaid, and a trip to the wonderful Tivoli Gardens will leave the visitor in no doubt that this is a very special city.
