Copenhagen

Copenhagen is the capital and most populous city of Denmark. The City of Copenhagen has a population of app. 800,000, the larger urban area has a population of 1,300,000, while the Copenhagen metropolitan area has just over 2 million inhabitants. The city is situated on the eastern coast of the island of Zealand. The city is the cultural, economic and governmental centre of Denmark. Copenhagen's economy has seen rapid developments in the service sector, especially through initiatives in information technology, pharmaceuticals and clean technology.  Copenhagen's landmarks such as Tivoli Gardens, the Little Mermaid Statue, the Amalienborg and Christiansborg palaces, Rosenborg Castle Gardens, Frederik's Church, and many museums, restaurants and nightclubs are significant tourist attractions. With a number of bridges connecting the various districts, the cityscape is characterized by parks, promenades and waterfronts.

Transportation: It is easy to get around in Copenhagen, which is one of the most bicycle-friendly cities in the world; in addition busses run frequently, the Copenhagen Metro serves central Copenhagen, and the Copenhagen S-train network connects central Copenhagen to its outlying boroughs.

Serving roughly 2 million passengers a month, Copenhagen Airport, Kastrup, is the largest airport in the Nordic countries. From the airport the city center can easily be reached by train. The train ride from Copenhagen Airport to Copenhagen Central Station takes less than 15 minutes.
