Copenhagen

Copenhagen has been Denmark's capital for 600 years. It's an appealing and largely low-rise city comprised of block after block of period six-storey buildings. Church steeples punctuate the skyline, with only a couple of modern hotels marring the view. No matter what your interests, Copenhagen has a whole lot of sightseeing and entertainment on offer. Historic or modern, gay or straight, sleek shops or cosy cafes - it's all nestled right in the heart of a compact city and presented with typical Scandinavian assurance and flair. In the coldest winter months of January and February, the average daytime temperature hovers around freezing point. But fear not, May to September is much more comfortable, although realistically you can expect to see rain and grey skies during most of the year. The most popular months for visitors to Denmark are May, June, July and August, although Copenhagen has a healthy peppering of festivals throughout the year so you'll always find something to inspire you.Copenhagen is a major regional center of culture, business, media, and science. In 2008 Copenhagen was ranked #4 by Financial Times-owned FDi magazine on their list of Top50 European Cities of the Future after London, Paris and Berlin.

In the 2008 Worldwide Centers of Commerce Index, published by MasterCard, Copenhagen was ranked 14th in the world and 1st in Scandinavia. Life science, information technology and shipping are important sectors and research & development plays a major role in the city's economy. Its strategic location and excellent infrastructure with the largest airport in Scandinavia located 14 minutes by train from the city centre, has made it a regional hub and a popular location for regional headquarters[8] as well as conventions.
