Copenhagen is an ancient city, full of beautiful historic buildings and many points of interest. The ramparts and walls surrounding the centre of the city were demolished around the middle of the nineteenth century. This allowed the city to assume the peculiar architectural structure characterised by narrow stone streets that lead directly to the city centre and which are the background to numerous shops and bars.
In recent years, Copenhagen's historic architectural heritage has been enriched with modern and contemporary buildings. An example of these are those designed by the Danish and French architects Bjarke Ingels and Jean Nouvel, who gave a new touch to the old-fashioned style of the city. At the same time, many districts have been modernised as well.
Copenhagen is also known for its relaxing atmosphere. Citizens go to work by bike, they like to go out with their families, spend an afternoon in one of the city's many parks in the company of their friends, take a bath in one of the many pools in the harbour during the warmer months and take an active part in the events that animate the city throughout the year.
The legendary landmark known for its world-famous Danish beer is closed for modernisation until 2020. Although the Visitor Centre will not be open to the public until then, the Jacobsen’s brewery will continue to brew Jacobsen beer (Jacobsen Restaurant and Bar will be closed). Carlsberg Brand Store are open Tuesday to Thursday between 11:00 and 15:00. Carlsberg Conference Centre, Carlsberg Museum & Business Centre and New Carlsberg Brewhouse will still be open for events every day of the week during the construction period.

This iconic postcard-ready sight is somewhat of a sudden splash of colour, and a definite must-visit when in town. Stroll along the harbour and sit down for an evening drink in one of the many enticing establishments, most of which offer heating and blankets to make for a cosy time even at low temperatures.
Located in Vesterbro (Copenhagen's favourite night-life area) Mikkeler is a bar and craft brewery that simply can't be missed. Craft beer lovers will have a fabulous time beer tasting, and the cosy atmosphere with lit candles and small tables create a pleasant intimate feel.
Good to know
The Copenhagen Metro, which has been ranked the best in the world for several years, runs between the airport and the city centre - useful for both tourists and locals. It takes just 15 minutes to get from the airport to Kongens Nytorv in the heart of Copenhagen, but you can also get off at Christianshavn or Nørreport.
S-trains - The bright red regional "S" trains connect the suburbs and the surrounding towns with the city.
Buses are efficient and use the same ticketing and pricing system as the S trains and the metro.
