THINGS TO DO IN COPENHAGEN
As a benchmark of sustainability and quality of life, Copenhagen boasts many virtues but without being overly showy, and as you stroll the city streets you'll feel completely at home.
There's a word in Danish which is quite difficult to translate into English. Hygge, pronounced "hoo-ga", refers to a state of simple, modest happiness, the joy obtained from the small things in life. It's a useful word to define Copenhagen: a peaceful, quiet city that enjoys every aspect of ordinary life. As visitors we feel it as well. Every time we go there we just feel really good.
Copenhagen has received numerous awards and distinctions for the spaces it sets aside for cyclists. Thanks to its vast network of bike lanes, you can cross the city from one end to another on two wheels. Whether you want to visit castles, coastal areas or art galleries, you can get there by bike.
The great hippy centre of Northern Europe is Christiania, an alternative commune that proclaimed its independence from Denmark and the European Union and has become an icon of the anti-Establishment movement. Founded more than four decades ago, today it is home to more than 1,000 people. It has its own rules and laws based on mutual respect and cooperation.
Something else that Copenhagen is famous for is craft beer. In the capital of Denmark you'll find bars where you can sample all kinds of beers. They say here that the craft ones are a type of religion, and no doubt you'll find it hard to choose between them. Try districts like trendy Nørrebro or the Latin Quarter, very popular with young Danes.
Strange as it might sound, one of our recommendations for a few days in Copenhagen is to leave the city and cross over to Malmö. You can kill two birds with one stone and visit two different countries when you take a mini-break to Denmark. The Swedish city of Malmö is very close to Copenhagen and you can reach it by crossing the Øresund Bridge, another local landmark. In Malmö you can spend a great day strolling along the banks of the different canals and then go back to Copenhagen when night falls to continue enjoying Danish hygge.
