City breaks to Copenhagen
Copenhagen is a cool, laid back city break destination for people who would like to visit a European Capital city without experiencing the usual hectic rushing around and crazy traffic congestion that is experienced in other major cities. Copenhagen is similar to Amsterdam as it features many beautiful canals and a picturesque skyline which is not dominated by overbearing skyscrapers and corporate office blocks. Instead the city has lovely terracotta rooftops and copper green spires and beautiful plazas and instead of rush hour traffic there are many cyclists pedalling around the city. Copenhagen is a gateway to Scandinavia although the city has its own unique personality which is different to the rest of mainland Europe and Scandinavia.
