In the heart of Copenhagen, you'll find Amalienborg Palace, one of the world's oldest monarchies still in existence.

Explore Freetown Christiania, a parallel society in the heart of Copenhagen, home to around 1,000 inhabitants and a distinctive 70s vibe.

Discover charming cafes, galleries, music venues, and workshops in this fascinating community, but keep in mind that it's a unique and unconventional place that requires an open mind. Take a leisurely stroll along the ramparts and canals for a one-of-a-kind experience.
