Copenhagen

City of Beautiful Towers

Founded in the 10th century as a Viking fishing village, Copenhagen has morphed into the cultural, political, and economic powerhouse of the country.
Explore the numerous day-trip ideas around Copenhagen: Helsingoer (Helsingor Havn & Kronborg). And it doesn't end there: take in nature's colorful creations at Tivoli Gardens, explore the world behind art at Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek, wander the streets of Christiania, and take a leisurely stroll along Nyhavn.

For maps, more things to do, and other tourist information, read our Copenhagen trip planner.

Nassau, Bahamas to Copenhagen is an approximately 15.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 6 hours traveling from Nassau to Copenhagen. Plan for colder temperatures traveling from Nassau in December, with highs in Copenhagen at 7°C and lows at 2°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 4th (Tue) to allow enough time to fly to Aarhus.

Known for its old-fashioned charm, Denmark often is referenced as a fairy-tale setting by visitors and locals alike. With quaint cobblestone streets leading the way to art galleries, museums, and historical sights, plus a modern and easily accessible public transportation system, Denmark seamlessly blends its rich history with modern advancements. Be inspired by the works of local legends, including the fairy tales of Hans Christian Andersen, the symphonies of Carli Nielsen, and the astronomy work of Tycho Brahe, then play a bit at amusement parks like Legoland. Visitors often find themselves developing "hygge," the untranslatable Danish trait that encapsulates a sense of coziness and contentment, which is thought to have a great deal of influence on Denmark's standing as one of the happiest nations on the planet.
