A land of castles and royalty inspired the fairy tales of author, Hans Christian Andersen. Always connected to pristine waters, Denmark consists of 406 islands, including the Faroe Islands, and is located between the North Sea and the Baltic. Denmark has long been a center of cultural innovation, and the tone among the Danes themselves is relaxed, displaying an open international attitude.
Although constantly advancing, Denmark's capital and largest city, Copenhagen, always showcases its rich history. Scattered with castles, Copenhagen has transformed into an edgy metropolitan city thanks to investments in infrastructure and architecture. Known as one of the most environmentally and bicycle-friendly cities in the world, free city bikes are offered in central Copenhagen.
The second oldest amusement park in the world, Tivoli offers a variety of attractions including: wooden roller coasters, illuminated flower gardens, restaurants, and theatres. Located in the heart of Copenhagen, Tivoli opened in 1843 and has continued to expand while keeping its charm.
