Copenhagen, Denmark, is a city with historical charm and a contemporary style that feels effortless. Copenhagen is an old merchants' town overlooking the entrance to the Baltic Sea; a socially progressive and tolerant city; a metropolis that manages to run efficiently yet feel relaxed; and a city with so many architectural treasures that it's known as the "City of Beautiful Spires." And given the Danes' highly tuned environmental awareness, Copenhagen can be enjoyed on foot or on a bicycle.  Click here to see the full Copenhagen travel guide on Travel42 »

Founded in the 11th century as a fishing village in what was then a remote corner of Denmark, Copenhagen gradually became the country's uncontested political, economic and cultural center. Bishop Absalon was the first to recognize the importance of its location on the Baltic Sea. In the 12th century, the Viking warrior-cleric built the first fortress to defend the area against pirates and planned a compact city behind its ramparts. By the time of his death, the city was a vital military post and a thriving trade center.   Click here to see the full Copenhagen travel guide on Travel42 »

If it weren't for the unstable weather, Copenhagen would be the perfect European capital. It has beautiful parks, a picturesque harbor area and canals through the old town. We prefer to stroll around town, allowing plenty of time to admire the architecture (both old and ultramodern) and to chat with people in shops and small restaurants.  Click here to see the full Copenhagen travel guide on Travel42 »

Copenhagen is a late-night city where jazz clubs, nightclubs, dance halls, discos and taverns proliferate. The usual boundaries between bars, cafes and clubs have begun to blur, and many quiet cafes turn into happening bars at night; even traditional taverns and restaurants sometimes double as trendy DJ bars.   Click here to see the full Copenhagen travel guide on Travel42 »
