Destinations / City Breaks / Copenhagen
Capital of Denmark, Copenhagen is a truly gorgeous city - small enough to be intimate and accessible on foot, yet large enough to be hugely interesting with excellent infrastructure.
Weekend City Breaks to Copenhagen are alive and vibrant and the city claims to be one of the world's cities boasting the best quality of life. Very environmentally friendly, almost half the population cycles to work and the waters in the inner harbour are clean enough for safe swimming.
A city break in Copenhagen offers diverse pleasures ranging from the amazing Tivoli amusement park right in the city centre to some of Europe's top Art Museums. Naturally, a visit to Copenhagen would not be complete without a visit to Gefion Fountain to see the iconic statue of the "Little Mermaid" or indeed enjoy a guided tour of the Carlsberg Brewery!
With stunning world class design and architecture, Copenhagen is delightful for strolling around to admire the beautiful buildings, the atmospheric medieval heart or state of the art Stroget, one of the largest pedestrianised malls in the world. Wander round the very pretty Nyhavn district with its colourful house facades silhouetted on the water's edge or opt for the ultimate treat - a meal in "Noma", voted best restaurant in the world! Copenhagen also has the oldest Monarchy in the world, so there are plenty of world record boasts here!
The city of Copenhagen is a major centre for business, science, culture and media in Denmark and even has the largest airport in all Scandinavia. Located only 30 minutes by train from Malmo in Sweden as well, why not enjoy a two centre break by popping over to another country for the afternoon!
Served by direct Aer Lingus flights from Dublin, Copenhagen is now easily accessible from Ireland and is for delightful weekend city breaks..
