Enjoy your flight to Copenhagen with Air France

Copenhagen is a historic city with many technological and environmental innovations

Copenhagen is the capital city of the Scandinavian country Denmark, with nearly 2 million people living in the urban area of the city. The city probably started life as a Viking fishing village in the 10th Century, and it played a particularly central role in the 'Danish Golden Age' of the early 19th century, when the country produced many works of art and literature. Hans Christian Andersen, the author of many well-known fairy tales and children's stories, plus the philosopher Soren Kierkegaard are two well-known figures of this time.
The city is notable for its environmental credentials, and has built a nearby wind farm and advanced water treatment site to improve the local sea water. It also encourages cycling as a means of transport and has other energy-saving measures. It is also a research and development hub, especially within biotechnology, inside the collaboration with Sweden known as Medicon Valley.

Enjoy the culture and art of Denmark in the beautiful, green city of Copenhagen

You can enjoy much of the Danish culture and many attractions during your stay in Copenhagen. Perhaps a good place to start during a holiday is the Frederiksstaden, a district which includes examples of the Rococo period of architecture. Within this area is the Amalienborg Palace, the winter home of the Danish Royal Family, and Frederik's Church, which has an interesting dome and other architectural features. The nearby Copenhagen Opera House was a gift from a generous philanthropist, and was opened in 2009.
Rosenborg Castle has an attractive garden that attracts millions of visitors every year, and includes a sculpture garden. It is Danish policy to have a park or a beach within 15 minutes of the house of every citizen. There is an aquarium called the 'Blue Planet' that houses a wide variety of sea life, with a tunnel to see creatures swimming around from all angles.
To explore the art and culture of Denmark, there are many museums and galleries within Copenhagen. The National Museum contains archaeology and cultural history. Denmark's National Gallery includes work from Rubens, Rembrandt, Picasso, and Matisse. There are a number of sculptures and other artefacts from the ancient world in the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek museum, and the work of some impressionist painters. Louisiana houses a collection of modern art. An old hospital houses the Danish Museum of Art and Design. Copenhagen is particularly noted for its Jazz scene, after some well-known US musicians moved to the city during the 1960s. In July there is the Copenhagen Jazz Festival that attracts many lovers of the style.
To enjoy some traditional cuisine, try the smorrebrod, an open sandwich, or perhaps some Carlsberg beer. There are a number of community festivals such as Copenhagen Carnival and the Copenhagen Distortion for youth. The Tivoli gardens is an amusement park with some antique rollercoasters and Ferris wheels.
