About Copenhagen


This is Copenhagen - A City for Life

Danes are said to be the happiest people in the world, and Copenhagen the world’s most liveable city. Why? Because every bit of Copenhagen is designed for life, from the buildings and architecture, the food and the water, the many bikes and the intelligent infrastructure to free education, free health care, and a society firmly focused on the life balance between work and play.


Copenhagen is a pocket-sized fairy tale and at the same time, a buzzing and innovative hub of ideas. Copenhagen is a city large enough for every kind of life philosophy, but small enough to bicycle from one end to the other in twenty minutes. It is all there, the urban pulse in the cobbled streets, the castles and bell towers, the artists, makers and the green grass, the mothers, babies and their strollers, the hipsters and their dreams, the prince and the queen.


The Copenhageners excel in combining simple and sustainable solutions with a casually sophisticated lifestyle. A lifestyle based on tradition, history and culture, yet constantly moving forward, giving Copenhagen a unique blend between the harmonies of old world charm and the progressive beat of a truly cosmopolitan city.
