About Copenhagen

The city of Copenhagen was founded in 1167. It has developed into a major regional center of business, science and culture located in the heart of the Oresund region, the combined area of Eastern Denmark and South-western Sweden brought together over the past decade via the building of the Oresund Bridge. The Oresund Region is one of the world’s most dynamic regions in the areas of environment, climate and energy and is home to one of Europe's strongest life science clusters. The Oresund region has two world-class universities and three top European universities, giving the region a strong position within the Nordic countries.

Copenhagen is a charming, relaxed and relatively small city - that’s why many Copenhageners prefer bike over car. Main tourist attractions are the Tivoli Gardens, the statue of the Little Mermaid, and Nyhavn, a 17th century colorful harbour front. Other spots worth a visit are Amalienborg Castle and surrounding area, the Town Hall and the freetown Christiania, while the spiralling tower of Vor Frelsers Kirke offers a beautiful view over the city and the Oresund.

One of the main attractions in November and December in central Copenhagen is the Christmas Market in the Tivoli Gardens. Please find more touristic information about Copenhagen.
