Discover the Danish concept of 'hygge' when you visit this land of the Vikings. This Nordic country with 406 islands is home to people such as Hans Christian Andersen, Niels Bohr, and Søren Kierkegaard. While you're here, you're bound to come across some new celebrations and traditions that you'll want to take home with you.



A Viking fishing village no longer, this capital of Denmark is known for its history, castles, bikes, and amusement parks. With a compact downtown, it is easy to get from site to site, whether that is Tivoli Gardens, Strøget - one of Europe's longest pedestrian streets, or Amalienborg Palace.

Gaze in amazement at the 1:20 scale replicas of world landmarks in Mini Land, go on rollercoasters in Adventure Land, or have fun exploring the newest area, Ninjago World. You can easily spend the whole day at LegoLand, the largest tourist attraction in Denmark outside of Copenhagen, and even better, it's located right next to the original Lego factory.

Visit the site where Carlsberg Beer began. At Jacobsen Brewery, you'll learn about the brewing process and get to taste four different types of beers. Visit the gardens, and explore the Carlsberg city area, and don't miss out on seeing the largest collection of beer bottles in the world.


Tivoli Gardens


Take a trip to the unique Tivoli Gardens, an amusement park and collection of gardens in Copenhagen, located just a few minutes' walk away from City Hall. While you're there, take in northern Europe's longest saltwater aquarium, visit the Chinese bamboo forest, take a ride on one of the world's oldest wooden roller coasters, and enjoy being in a space that Hans Christian Andersen and Walt Disney visited and loved.

Connected to Copenhagen by the Öresund bridge, this third largest city in Sweden is perfect for a day trip. Explore the Malmö Museums located in the renaissance Malmöhus Castle, go shopping in the large Emporia shopping mall, or try out the open-air public baths and saunas on Ribersborg beach.

What’s your favorite time of year/season in Copenhagen, and why?

Though it is cold, winter in Copenhagen is the best. There are many Christmas festivals and the city takes on a great warm feeling. It’s hard to describe.

Favorite local food or drink?

You can’t go wrong with Carlsberg.

Why choose Copenhagen?

I have traveled many places, but never wished to live anywhere else. Copenhagen is a great city with a unique culture and kindness.

Before You Go...

Arrival Airport


All Panrimo students should fly into Copenhagen Airport (CPH) between 10am-2pm, local time, on the first day of their program.



All interns will need to obtain residence and work permits to work in Denmark. Your Panrimo personal advisor will provide passport and permit assistance after your application is accepted.



The Danish Krone (DKK) is the currency of Denmark. The krone is divided into 50-øre, kr1, kr2, kr5, kr20 coins and kr5, kr10, kr20, kr50, kr100, kr200, kr500, and kr1000 banknotes. 1 Krone equals approximately $.15.

Local Transportation


Getting around Copenhagen is safe and easy. The simplest choice will be to buy a City Pass that lets you travel on the train, metro, and busses all across the city for 24 or 72 hours. A 72 hour pass is DKK 200. The transit operates 24 hours a day, and travel information can be easily found using the Rejseplanen (Journey Planner) website and app.



While Danish is the language of the city, the locals speak English very well, along with German and some French.



Denmark has a relatively mild climate. With average temps topping out at only 68 degrees in the summer, students visiting Copenhagen during the spring and summer will want to bring jeans, t-shirts, and long-sleeve shirts, along with an umbrella and jacket, since rain occurs all year long. Winter visitors will want to bring their warmest clothes, since temperatures hover between the mid-40s to mid-20s October through May.
