Everything is closer in Copenhagen
Whether you are in search of the perfect hotel, interested in design and architecture or keen to try some of the world’s best restaurants, rest assured that in Copenhagen you are never far away from it all.
Copenhagen is a very accessible city and its airport, which is Scandinavia’s main traffic hub, offers non-stop flights from 165 international destinations. A short 13-minute Metro journey from the airport will lead you to the city centre. The city is designed for pedestrians and cyclists, and you will find it easy to navigate.
WHY HOST YOUR EVENT IN COPENHAGEN
Copenhagen is the perfect place to have a top-notch sustainable event. The city is a front-runner when it comes to adopting sustainable solutions. The city has one of the world’s most ambitious climate policies, with a goal of becoming the first carbon-neutral capital city by 2025. As a result, it is almost impossible not to have a sustainable meeting or event in the Danish capital.
Copenhagen’s compact city centre makes walking between meeting venues, hotels, sights, and restaurants a matter of minutes. Adding to this, the city is also the world’s most bike-friendly city. In fact, it is home to the world’s busiest bicycle lanes, used by 36,000 cyclists per day. The city’s rush hour differs from most others since bicycles outnumber cars in Copenhagen. So, join the locals and jump on a bike.
Sustainable accommodation and venues in Copenhagen
Almost 70% of the hotel rooms in Copenhagen are eco-certified. Many of the city’s convention venues are also Green Key certified while international hotel chains such as Radisson have their own environmental programmes.
The city of Copenhagen and the Copenhagen CVB ranked 2nd in the first-ever sustainability ranking for event destinations worldwide in the 2016 Global Destination Sustainability Index.
World-class local cuisine
With 18 Michelin stars across 15 restaurants, Copenhagen is the capital of Nordic Cuisine. A great selection of the city’s restaurant, cafés and hotels are riding the “green wave” by ensuring that you can eat environmentally friendly food at all price levels.
