If ever a city was made to be enjoyed on a bike, then this is it. Danes take their cycling very seriously with entire parts of the road dedicated to safe cycling – a great way to see Copenhagen.

The sea surrounds the capital and the water is so clean that you can actually go for a dip in the Copenhagen harbours. Head to Amager Strandpark for lots of fun water activities.

A hard concept to grasp but it essentially translates as cosiness and the Danes are mad about it. Usually involves candles, blankets and good friends.
