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.
More about having the time of your life than setting personal bests, the Color Run is a five-kilometre run that will see you doused from head to toe in different coloured paints. Wind your way through the streets of Copenhagen and expect the mother of all street parties awaiting you at the finish line. www.thecolorrun.dk
Now in its 125th year, the Design Museum is a shrine to Danish design and perfect for anyone with even a passing interest in Denmark's rich design heritage. Boasting exhibitions of everything from post-war furniture to turn-of-the-century graphic design, this is a museum that seeks to inspire as much as it educates. www.designmuseum.dk
