Copenhagen is the ideal city break – with angular 21-century architecture along the waterfront and indie boutiques and bars, there’s something new around every corner.

Tivoli Gardens
A visit to Tivoli Gardens is a must, the second-oldest operating amusement park in the world. It is most magical after dark, sparkling with fairy lights and lanterns.

Probably the most photographed spot in Copenhagen, Nyhavn is the perfect place to end a long day. The beautiful old houses have been renovated and restaurants dominate the old port. It is filled with people enjoying the relaxed atmosphere by the canal, jazz music and great food.

Freetown Christiana is the autonomous anarchist district in Denmark’s capital. Formally a military base, hippies settled there in the seventies, comprising a community that has its own rules and regulations completely independent of the Danish government. From jazz music to restaurants serving various cuisines, this is a place bursting with culture.
