Gateway to style, silver and Scandinavia

Gateway to style, silver and Scandinavia

The capital of Denmark, Copenhagen (København) is the perfect introduction to Scandinavia. Compact, modern, beautiful (and that includes people.) With a Eurail Scandinavia Pass travel from Denmark into Sweden using the Scandinavian trains. But, first make sure to give Copenhagen the attention it deserves.

About Denmark

Upon arrival at Copenhagen’s Central Station, you need only cross the street to find the Tivoli amusement park, offering fun for all ages since 1843. When founded, there was an agreement that three-quarters of its area be dedicated to open space. Which is why you’ll find gorgeous, fragrant flower fields residing next to knuckle-baring rides (one called The Demon – scary !), bandstands and over 30 restaurants.

You’ve barely left the train station and already have been thrust into the culture of Copenhagen. For a deeper overview of the city’s best sights, hop on the Copenhagen City Sightseeing Tour. You’ll pass scenic canals bordered by brightly colored townhouses. The architecturally stunning Børsen. The Little Mermaid statue, perched delicately on a rock in the harbor.

Shopping is a requisite. No trip to Copenhagen would be complete without stopping for something silver at renowned jeweler Georg Jensen. Also on your list should be a cup and saucer from Royal Copenhagen Porcelain. Not your style ? Find something more streamlined (and essentially Danish) on the Strøget, the world’s longest pedestrian street.

The former Red Light District of Vesterbro has been transformed by the uberhip and chic set. Fashionable bars and restaurants sit side by side with halal markets and coffee shops filled with local workers taking a break.

Whether rain, shine or daytime darkness (such is life in Scandinavia), Copenhagen offers a host of indoor attractions not to be missed. At the National Museum, walk through the 1,000 year history of the city. See the winter home of the royal family at Amalienborg Palace. The Rosenborg Slot is not only a beautiful building, but also a fascinating museum of cultural history, which houses some of Denmark’s greatest cultural treasures, including the Crown Jewels and the Danish Crown Regalia.

The Danish have been voted “Happiest People on Earth.” After a visit, you’ll be one of those people, too.
