Lifestyle

There's a lot to see and do in Copenhagen. It is an old city with many historical buildings but also a lot of new exciting archtecture.     
There's water and canals around you in the city centre. There are different  ways to see the city from the waterside; you can go on a tour on the canals in a tourist canal-boat. You can rent a little motorboat or you can go by kayak! You can even swim in a part of the harbour - the water is clean!
If you like museums you'll really like Copenhagen; there are a lot of different beautiful museums; historical, art, design... and many of them are free on Wednesdays :-)
There's excellent shopping in both malls and in the walking streets. Danish design is known world wide :-)
You should also see the royal family's castle while you are here. And besides that castle there are many other castles to check out, if you like that :-)
Even that Denmark is in Northern Europe, we have very nice beaches in the Copenhagen area.
