Wonderful, wonderful Copenhagen greets visitors with an adventure in happiness. Testament to Hans Christian Andersen’s heritage, a real sense of fairytale dreaminess shrouds the city, from the bronzed, rock-perched Little Mermaid statue, to the pretty pantone houses hugging the canal banks of Nyhavn and the magical world of Tivoli Gardens, the world’s oldest theme park. Copenhagen also treats guests to its own achingly cool brand of contemporary, too. The famous Danish design aesthetic, chic bars and ultra-modern cuisine provide a stark contrast to the illuminated canal-sides, nine century-old history and royal heritage. Flitting between the two distinct styles is one of the joys of a Copenhagen holiday by rail.
