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.
Whether you're arriving by land, sea or air, it's hard to miss The Blue Planet. Aside from being northern Europe's largest aquarium, its sleek design has made it Denmark's newest architectural landmark. Here, you can escape the cold with a deep dive into an exotic underwater world of hammerhead sharks, piranhas, anacondas and poisonous sea snakes, and even stop for a bite to eat at the acclaimed onsite eatery ØST with panoramic views over the Sound (1 Jacob Fortlingsvej, 2770 Kastrup, denblaaplanet.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
From modest beginnings as a culinary experiment offering cheap eats from pop-up street kitchens, Copenhagen Street Food has evolved into one of the city's best loved foodie hotspots. Now boasting over 25 food stalls serving up everything from tasty homemade pasta (Il Matterello) to authentic Korean barbecue (Bulko), there's something to suit all palates. New for the winter, diners can now reserve tables inside a giant, heated greenhouse, making this a truly all-weather destination for hungry sightseers (Papirøen/The Paper Island

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.
