Copenhagen is the capital of Denmark and has a population of over one million people. It is the most visited city in Northern Europe, with flights to Copenhagen continuously booked throughout the year. Continually receiving high rankings as one of the best cities in the world in which to live: Copenhagen is well designed and environmentally friendly – no problems with smog here. Its location on the Oresund Strait, a short distance from Sweden, has made it a regional hub and it is a preferred location for company headquarters in the region. A centre of culture, business, media and science, Copenhagen is often chosen to host conventions and exhibitions for various industries.
The city can be enjoyed at any time of the year but the most popular time is in the spring or summer months since daylight hours are much shorter in winter and autumn. In summer the temperatures are around 20 degrees Celsius and in winter can drop to minus 12 degrees Celsius. This will not bother experienced travellers who wrap up well. As Copenhagen is around 600 miles from the UK, it is possible to obtain flights to Copenhagen and arrive in Kastrup Airport in around two hours, and it takes less than 15 minutes to travel by train to downtown Copenhagen from the airport. Many budget carriers offer cheap flights to Copenhagen so there is really no excuse for not visiting this wonderful northern capital.
Copenhagen has a rich history although its exact origins are uncertain. Some believe that Copenhagen has existed since the Late Viking Age, while it is commonly believed that its humble beginnings stem from the 11th century. From the 12th century onwards its harbour ensured a steady growth, becoming ever more important as a centre of commerce as the centuries passed.
