Cheap flights to Copenhagen
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.
Now in its fourth year, Wondercool is Copenhagen's major winter festival and takes place throughout the whole of February. Over 100 events involving food, design, fashion, music and art will be held throughout the city: think gastronomic displays in historic squares, architecture tours of contemporary structures and cosy jazz concerts. wondercoolcopenhagen.com
Fans of 20th-century Danish furniture design should head to "Wegner: Just One Good Chair", a major exhibition held by the Design Museum Denmark (68 Bredgade) to mark the 100th anniversary of Hans J Wegner's birth. A visual feast of old photos, drawings, film clips, models and furniture awaits.
If Danish interior design gets your heart racing, you'll love Klassik, an antiques shop in the city centre that specialises in top-quality 20th-century Scandinavian pieces by designers such as Arne Jacobsen and Poul Henningsen. Buy something to ship home or browse the jewellery, glass and ceramics small enough to fit in your hand luggage (3 Bredgade, klassik.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.
