Copenhagen vacation rentals

Copenhagen is effortlessly stylish

Don't tell Stockholm but Copenhagen could just be the hippest of all the Scandinavian capitals. New Nordic cuisine _ foraged, flavor-centric _ was born here between the countless design boutiques and avant-garde architecture. Even the Medieval monuments of older Copenhagen seem to glimmer with a confident, 21st-century edge _ royal gardens buzzing with chatting students, colorful Nyhavn brimming with bars and sail-flapping ship museums. Nearby, the Tivoli still twinkles and the harbors of Vesterbro still throb with life. Seek out your Copenhagen vacation rentals for a taste of this cool and collected city.

Copenhagen brims with culture

From the annual night of the museums in fall to the summer Jazzfestival of July, Copenhagen is never shy to flaunt its cultural muscles. But the calendar of events is just a taster. This city always has the hectic flea markets of Halmtorvet, the hop-on, hop-off bus tours that wiggle through the royal palaces and old harbors, and the urban amusement arcades. Throw in world-class design institutions and lessons in New Nordic cuisine with world-leading chefs, along with some of the most cycle-friendly districts on the planet, and this Scandinavian treat really begins to take shape.

Cutting-edge Copenhagen

Art lovers assemble in Copenhagen to delve into the Danish National Gallery and the Arken Museum of Modern Art, the acclaimed Hirschsprung Collection and the Viking relics of the Nationalmuseet. This whirlwind of awesome galleries and institutions heralds a potpourri of prized portraiture and avant-garde works. Others might want to book Copenhagen vacation rentals close to the twinkling lights and twirling rides of Tivoli Gardens, or in Frederiksberg for the roaring lions of Copenhagen Zoo. Others might prefer Nyhavn, where ship museums and bars beckon from the quays.

Come whenever to Copenhagen

With all those design museums, Danish masterworks, architectural gems, and inner-city amusement parks, you might think that Copenhagen never gets boring. You'd be darn right. Summer and winter, the place is bursting with life. The midwinter Christmas season means catching enchanting festive markets in the Tivoli. The cold, icy months from February to March have carnivals to enjoy, and are high time to settle in the cozy cafes. Searching for Copenhagen vacation rentals in summer sees the al fresco side of the capital _ think swimmers in Vesterbro harbor, and outdoor beer halls from May to September.

From coast to island in Copenhagen

Copenhagen's past is intimately tied to its place on the edge of the Baltic Sea. It's from here that Viking raiders once launched their ships across the ocean, even if today the coast is given over to urban lidos and parks. You can get a taste of the salt-washed shores by hitting the wide beaches of the Amager Strandpark _ it's awash with dog walkers and sunbathers in the summer. Alternatively, you could drive across to Funen island. That's a picture of "time-stood-still" Denmark, with rolling pastures peppered with rustic hamlets.
