Copenhagen

Copenhagen, one of the largest cities in northern Europe, is also one of Europe’s busiest hubs. The city’s location has through the centuries, in an almost natural way, created commercial routes to far and near.

Today Copenhagen is very easy to reach by air, sea or land. Copenhagen Airport, Kastrup, (airport code CPH) is a major Northern European air hub with direct flights to most larger European cities as well as transatlantic and other far away destinations.page4image19995584

Over the waters of the sound, the Øresund Bridge, connecting Copenhagen and Malmö in Sweden, has made it very easy to cross the sound by car or train. Copenhagen also has daily trains to Stockholm and Oslo,

For further information about the city visit its official website.
