Wonderful, wonderful Copenhagen
Copenhagen is a vibrant, youthful city with a long and distinguished history, which has something for everyone. Home to almost a quarter of Denmark’s 5,5 million inhabitants, it is a city characterised by stunning architecture, exhilarating nightlife and world class cuisine. Amongst the city’s historical buildings, meandering side streets and beautiful gardens, there is a modern world of design and shopping waiting to be discovered.
During the 1950s, furniture designers like Arne Jacobsen, Hans Wegner, and Børge Mogensen unveiled a world of thrilling Danish design. Today, Danish design is recognised and respected the world over, and its influence can be felt in the city’s prestigious boutiques, hotels and museums. For the fashion obsessed, Copenhagen is home to world-famous clothes designers whose flagship stores can be found on Strøget (one of Europe’s longest shopping streets) as well as plenty of exciting new local design talent, who are just waiting to be discovered in the Vesterbro and Nørrebro districts of the city. Nørrebro is also home to several cosy cafés where you can relax and regain your energy before getting back on your bike and heading over to visit the superb Danish Museum of Art and Design located on Kongens Nytorv.
