I’ve been here fleetingly and would love to go back, having fallen in love with Nyhavn,
Copenhagen’s charming entertainment district on the water. Between the wooden ships on the water, the historical mansions along the canal, and the 17th century colourful rows of bars, restaurants, and cafés, Nyhavn is the perfect place to people watch and take in the Danish culture.
There are also palaces, castles, a botanical garden, and one of the world’s largest open-air museums. The best way to visit the city is to rent and get around on a bike — Copenhagen prides itself on being cyclist-friendly with roughly 400 kilometres of biking paths.
DID YOU KNOW?
Denmark currently ranks as the second-safest country on the Global Peace Index.
