Information from the Foreign Office about your trip to Denmark:

The smallest Scandinavian country, Denmark, is located in Northern Europe and is predominantly surrounded by water. The country is only connected to the foreign mainland through the southern border with Germany, which is around 70 kilometers long and is also the border with Central Europe. On July 1, 2000, an artificial connection to Malmö in Sweden was opened in eastern Denmark through the 8-kilometer-long Öresund Bridge.

The largest cities in Denmark include Copenhagen, Aarhus, Odense, Esbjerg, Aalborg, Kolding, Randers, Roskilde and Koge.

Of the approximately 5.8 million inhabitants, more than a million live in the greater area of the capital Copenhagen alone. The city is the cultural and economic center of the country and also the residence of the Danish queen. Copenhagen was the European Capital of Culture in 1986 and has the most cultural institutions in the country. The Royal Theater is probably the most famous theater in the city. However, the most famous symbol of the city, Lille Havfrue, is the “Little Mermaid”. You can admire the statue, which is only 1.25 meters tall, sitting on a stone right by the water.

Other attractions in the city include Tivoli, one of the oldest amusement parks in the world, the University of Copenhagen, Christiansborg Palace, Church of the Redeemer, Frederiksberg Slot, Rosenborg Palace, the Royal Danish Library, the Öresund Bridge, Grundtvig Church, Zenzes, the Jewish Museum, Copenhagen City Hall, Amalienborg Palace, Christiansborg Castle Church, Frihedsstotten, Christian IV Statue, City Hall Square, Kastellet, Carlsberg Brewery, St. Aleksander Nevsky Church, Holmen's Church and Frederik's Church.

The most famous tourist magnet for photos and filming is without question Nyhavn. This street with its many colorful gabled houses is also the center of gastronomy. You can try local specialties or various fish dishes in an excellent atmosphere. The local currency is the Danish krone and the conversion rate to the euro is approximately 7 to 1.

Denmark is particularly popular with nature and landscape lovers or with tourists who want to avoid the summer heat.

In recent years I have visited the capital Copenhagen twice, both times for two days each. After walking almost the entire city on my first visit, I took it a little easier the second time and spent the whole day at Nyhavn. This exciting place never gets boring because of the many people walking around and offers several cozy cafes and restaurants.

The second visit to Copenhagen was also the starting point for my five-hour flight to Greenland in September 2013.

For me, Copenhagen is without a doubt one of the most beautiful cities in Europe and is definitely worth a visit at any time of the year.
