Copenhagen is an amazing city to visit. Initially, it was just a stop off point for us to get to Stockholm and Oslo, and we seriously underestimated how much fun we’d have there.
Originally a Viking fishing village, Copenhagen became Denmark’s capital in the early 15th century and is now home to nearly 800,000 people. What I love most about it is how small it is – while using a foreign city’s public transport is always an interesting experience, I actually love cities that are small enough to walk everywhere (and if you’re not a fan of walking, Copenhagen is one of the most bicycle-friendly cities in the world).
It’s a colourful, vibrant, welcoming city and was named Lonely Planet’s number 1 city to visit in 2019. We instantly fell in love with the place and I will definitely be going back!
