Copenhagen

With a population of nearly 1.5 million, Copenhagen is Scandinavia’s largest and liveliest city. It’s an appealing and largely low-rise city comprised of block after block of period six storey buildings. Church steeples punctuate the skyline, with only a couple of modern hotels shooting up to  mar view.


The city’s foremost historical and cultural sites remain concentrated in a relatively small area, while parks, gardens, water fountains and squares are scattered all over the city. A cosmopolitan city, Copenhagen abounds with sightseeing and entertainment possibilities. For music lovers and other revelers there’s an active night scene which rolls into the early  hours of the morning.

The central railway station is flanked on the west by the main hotel zone and on the east by Tivoli amusement park. Opposite the northern corner of Tivoli is Radhuspladsen, the city’s central square and main bus transit point. Buses connect the airport, 9 km south of the center, with Central station and Radhuspladsen. Stroget, the world’s longest pedestrian mall runs through the city center between Radhuspladsen and Kongens Nytorv, the square at the head of the colorful Nyhavn canal area.

Lego land, a km north of the small Jutland town of Billund, is a 10 hectare theme park built from plastic Lego blocks, and is not recommended to anyone who fears having their childhood writ both large and Liliputian in 42 million pieces. Despite being Denmark’s most visited attraction outside of Copenhagen, Legoland is Bleckobland unless you’ve got a preteen entourage or have always wanted to resolve the structural problems of building the Statue of Liberty out of plastic. The most elaborate reconstruction here is the three million block Port of Copenhagen exhibit, which features electronically controlled ships, trains and cranes. Legoland’s popularity is partially responsible for turning Billund into Denmark’s second busiest airport.                                  Find more on Copenhagen at …
