Copenhagen, Denmark’s capital, is a city like no other. It sits on the coastal islands of Zealand and Amager and it links Malmo in southern Sweden by the Öresund Bridge. Although Copenhagen is the largest city in Denmark, it is in no way large, by other capital city comparisons. But what it lacks in size, it makes up for in culture.
Why exhibit there
Denmark’s most important natural resources are crude oil, natural gas, fish, salt and limestone. Denmark is also known for being among the world’s top countries when it comes to a very diverse range of products and services, including food, furniture and clothing, design and interior design, sea transport, windmills, pharmaceuticals, equipment for automatic cooling and heating, sensitive measuring instruments, as well as IT and communications.
In Copenhagen it only takes less than 15 minutes to go from Copenhagen Airport to the city centre by train or metro. Both metro and train run from terminal 3. You will need a ticket for three zones, which costs DKK 38.

Key tourist hotspots
Arguably Scandinavia's most relaxed capital city, Copenhagen has a distinctly European feel, a friendly street-life, and unique café culture that will make you want to return time and time again. The city is perfect for wandering through at your leisure, so take the time to explore.
- Tivoli Gardens - the inspiration behind the Disney theme parks, the famous Tivoli amusement park and pleasure gardens dating from 1843.
- Christiansborg Palace - On the tiny island of Slotsholmen is the Danish seat of government and an attraction that should be top on any visitor's agenda.
- Kastellet & The Little Mermaid - You can't visit the Danish capital without seeing the Little Mermaid, so head along the waterfront from Nyhavn to Kastellet.
Where to eat
- Restaurant Kronborg - serving the Danish classic: Smørrebrød. Enjoy these open sandwiches, but expect a few dozen topping options to choose from, including multiple takes on herring.
- Admiralgade 26 - expect anything from a lunchtime dish of Iberian pork with cauliflower and kimchi to a dinner dish of potato noodles with lumpfish roe and mussel sauce.
- Local currency is the Danish Krone.
- Language is Danish.
- EU citizens can travel freely to Denmark; citizens of other countries may require a visa. If you travel to Denmark from outside the Schengen agreement area, you may also require a visa. See here if you are from a country where you will need a visa to enter Denmark.
- Plug sockets in Denmark are the two pin type you find throughout Europe.
- Cultural sensitivities are few and far between in Denmark, but for conducting business:
- Great emphasis is placed on equality and the ideal that everyone is equal and must have the same rights and respect regardless of their social or ethnic background.
- Racist and discriminatory jokes are regarded as being very rude.
- Informality is typical in business life.
- There are no strict hierarchies between employees and management and it is common for employees to address their boss by his or her first name.
