Packed with an old world charm, Copenhagen is smaller than other major European city break hot spots, like Paris or Madrid, but is still rich in culture and attractions and is much less daunting. It won’t be long before you’re familiar with the cobblestone medieval streets, the canal walks and the colourful townhouses. And the best way to get around this city? By bike of course – well this is Scandinavia after all, and cars and pollution just aren’t the fashion here.
Don't know your "kylling" from The Killing? Get a crash course in Danish art, music and culture at Copenhagen's annual after-dark street festival Kulturnatten, on 10 October. With more than 500 events crammed into one Friday evening, this is one all-night party you won't regret staying up for. kulturnatten.dk
One of Europe's most unorthodox film festivals, CPH:DOX returns to Copenhagen on 6 November, taking over the city's cinemas and concert halls for a 10-day celebration of experimental film, hybrid cinema and contemporary non-fiction. This year's programme promises greater emphasis on the festival's bold Audio:Visuals concert series, which melds avant-garde film and live music from the likes of Sean Kuti and Swedish drums and vocals duo Wildbirds & Peacedrums to hypnotic effect. cphdox.dk
OK, so they may not actually brew Carlsberg here anymore, but a visit to the world-famous tipple's original brewery is still a fascinating experience. Not only will you learn all about the history of one of Denmark's favourite pastimes, you will also get the chance to sample specialist brews from the on-site Jacobsen microbrewery, take a ride on a horse-drawn delivery wagon and browse the world's biggest collection of unopened beer bottles (22,346 at the last count). What's more, the admission price includes a couple of beers. Skol! visitcarlsberg.dk
This is the perfect time of year for a visit to Klampenborg, a 20-minute train ride on S-train C from the main station. As well as a sandy beach the town is famed for its numerous buildings designed by Arne Jacobsen, including Restaurant Jacobsen, plus it has an entrance to Dyrehaven, the vast deer park and Bakken, the amusement park.
