About Copenhagen

Copenhagen is a city large enough for every kind of life philosophy, but small enough to bicycle from one end to the other in twenty minutes. It is all there, the urban pulse in the cobbled streets, the castles and bell towers, the artists makers and the green grass. Autumn is a beautiful and vibrant time of year to visit Copenhagen. In the city's many gardens and parks, the leaves change colours and you feel the refreshing breeze.

Copenhagen is truly a green city surrounded by water and parks, with climate-friendly citizens to match. Copenhageners excel in combining sustainable solutions with growth and a high quality of life. In fact, Copenhagen was European Green Capital 2014.

Denmark was the first country in the world to implement an environmental law and ever since, the environment has played a large part in city planning. Copenhagen has set a target of having 40% of its residents cycle to and from work by 2012 and is very close – 36% of Copenhagen residents cycle to and from work.

The ambitious green profile of the city has a clear goal: The City of Copenhagen aims to become the world's first CO2 neutral capital by 2025. Experience it for yourself. Swim in the clean waters of the city’s harbour baths, stay in a sustainable hotel, eat organic, and ride the electric city bikes around the old maritime city.
