Green livability, gastronomy, architecture and design - Copenhagen is a city that mixes a green mindset with ingenuity and fun. For instance, if you clean up the harbour, why not build a floating pool for swimmers to enjoy at all seasons?
Biking in Copenhagen is a big thing, and to date, Copenhagen is the uncrowned bike capital of the world. The city is built for bike rides, the harbour has been repurposed for swimming and bathing, and parks, gardens and small green oases are sprinkled all over the city. Copenhagen offers excellent opportunities to explore the city, whether by foot, bike or wheelchair.
We would love it if you stayed a little longer and saw what the city has to offer.
Denmark is a beautiful, tiny country. This means that you can get anywhere in the country from Copenhagen in just six hours - from the top of Jutland in the northwest to the island of Bornholm in the southeast.
Small is beautiful, especially when it comes to our four biggest cities in Denmark: Copenhagen, Aarhus, Aalborg and Odense. All cities can be reached by bus, train and car within 1 to 4 hours from Copenhagen. They are great places to enjoy architecture and get a closer look at Danes in their natural habitats! Denmark has islands, beaches, villages and cities, all close, all accessible. Explore food, museums, national parks and the local population.
We recommend visiting at least some of Denmark if you're already here for the congress - below, you can read more about how to get around and what to see.
Visit the Nordics
The Nordic countries make up the northernmost part of western Europe, extending into the Arctic. They include Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, Sweden, the Faroe Islands, Åland and in most definitions Greenland, as there are long-standing political and linguistic ties.
Scandinavia and the Nordics are both close in geography and wide-ranging in sights and nature. From the wide open areas and beaches of Denmark, to the mountains of Norway, the deep forests of Sweden, and the majestic lakes of Finland, the Nordics have exceptional nature and local peoples to explore. If you're feeling even more adventurous, the strikingly stark nature of Greenland, the volcanic majesty of Iceland and the beautiful green mountains of the Faroe Islands hold experiences and adventures that are unique and astonishing. Copenhagen is an excellent starting point for exploring the Nordics, and we would love for you to see more of the beautiful lands and areas that the Nordics encompass.
