To Copenhagen by train/ bus/ flight - travel tips

Efficiency matters in Copenhagen and this translates to all aspects of life. The local transport system is extremely good, the cycle networks are some of the best in the world, the tourism facilities are very well organised and much of the city centre is pedestrianised or well suited to walking. Like London, it's a city with its own royal family with palaces to visit and royal gardens to explore.

The restaurant scene is vibrant and experimental with a great emphasis on sustainable food sources and the bar and nightlife scene operates until the early hours. Art and design feature heavily everywhere you go and outdoor living is celebrated in all seasons. Architecture and design is also a big attraction in this city. The residents pride themselves on having some of the most beautiful traditional architecture sitting perfectly beside some of the most modern.

Green sustainability is part of the DNA of Danish design and this has made the city rightly proud of how it has developed since the 1970s. The ski slope on the roof of the city's most recent waste management plant at Kopenhill, for example, is a good way to illustrate the responsibility of the city to a greener agenda. The Kastrup Sea Baths is another architectural wonder that draws visitors from all over the city. The facility also offers three adn five metre diving boards. There are deep water and shallow water bathing areas.
