A guide to Copenhagen

What to see and do in the city, thanks to website Visit Copenhagen 

Copenhagen Copenhagen

There are wealth of attractions to explore in the historic city of Copenhagen - the host city to this year’s IAPAs and IPAF Summit

According to website Visit Copenhagen, the city is home to one of the oldest monarchies in the world with a history tracing back to the Viking Age. “History is everywhere in Copenhagen where cobblestone streets, palaces and royal artefacts make for a beautiful backdrop to the modern life lived by the Copenhageners of today.”

Biking in the city
As Visit Copenhagen points out, the city is best explored on two wheels. Visit the website for bike routes, where to rent a bike, biking rules and more. In 2022 Copenhagen will host the Tour de France Grand Départ - ride the route yourself.
