Flights to Copenhagen arrive at Copenhagen Airport, the largest and busiest airport in Scandinavia. Copenhagen airport is located 8km from the city center and serves as a primary airport for Denmark and southern Sweden. Getting to the center of Copenhagen is easy as there is a Metro station accessible from Terminal 3. The journey into the city takes roughly 15 minutes with trains running day and night. There is also the option to travel by bus, with several lines going to Copenhagen center, and taxis are on hand at Terminals 2 and 3.
Copenhagen is an ideal city to explore on foot as the landscape is flat and the architecture is interesting. Down by the canal, an area called Nyhavn is a favourite spot with visitors and locals alike. The colourful old buildings, boats, coffee shops and cafes make it a lovely place to stroll around in the daytime or evening. Hans Christian Anderson wrote his fairytales in one of the buildings, and lived for 67 years in another. While in Copenhagen, a few hours at the Carlsberg brewery is a must where visitors learn about the history and process of brewing this famous beverage. Tivoli Gardens, in the heart of the city, is a romantic amusement park that first opened in 1843. Inside are gourmet restaurants, open-air stages, market stalls and old-fashioned roller coasters.
