Cheap Flights to Copenhagen

Copenhagen overview

A charming city, Copenhagen is located on the island of Sealand, looking across at Sweden. It may not be in the first tier of must-see European cities, but it should be. Travellers on cheap flights to Copenhagen will discover its beautiful harbour (with world-famous resident, The Little Mermaid), fantastic museums, cutting-edge designers, excellent shopping and delicious seafood. 

The city is a regular in the list of the world's most livable cities. It's clean, green, tolerant and safe. Copenhagen lays claim to having the longest pedestrian walkway of any European city. Stroget is the city's main thoroughfare, a car-free shopping heaven, bounded on the west by the City Hall Square and on the east by the King's New Square and along which are the city's most famous, and priciest, stores. To get a glimpse of Copenhagen in all its red-roofed medieval glory, visit the Round Tower, Europe's oldest observatory. For thrills and spills of another kind, the Tivoli Gardens has a ride called the Demon that soars and loops more than 20 metres.

Copenhagen insider information

  • Copenhagen's canals are pristine. In good weather Danes head to the harbour basin at Islands Brygge to swim and dive. There is a swimming pool, diving pool and children's pool. The season runs from June 22 to August 31, 7am to 7pm, seven days a week. 
  • The Icebar at Hotel 27 has a temperature of about -5 degrees and everything is made of ice - walls, bars, tables, even your personal glass with a vodka cocktail. Capes and a free drink are included in the admission price. 
  • Amalienborg Palace is the winter home of the Danish royal couple. The Royal Guard is on duty for 24 hours, with the changing of the guard taking place every day at midday. 
  • Christiania, a district that's a mixture of anarchy and hippie ideals, was founded in 1971. About 1,000 people took over the area of military barracks and created a self-governing pocket with self-contained businesses and judiciary. It's an alternative society within society. Its citizens make and sell the family-friendly Christiania bikes. There are cafés, restaurants and stalls selling jewellery and other arts and crafts. 
  • After disembarking cheap flights to Copenhagen, get an injection of culture, free. The state-run museums such as the National Museum, Museum of Danish Resistance, Open Air Museum and National Gallery offer free entry all week to permanent exhibitions and special exhibitions. Other museums, that are free on Wednesdays, include the Hirschsprung Collection, the Geological Museum, Thorvaldsens Museum, Naval Museum and Hunting and Forestry Museum.
