Loving Life in Copenhagen
By: David G   |    August 1, 2012   |   0 Comments (0) (0)

Copenhagen has been called one of the most liveable cities in the world where a connection to the past co-exists with a lively contemporary edge.  Friendly, comfortable and socially progressive, Copenhagen is one of the most bicycle friendly cities in the world.

Tivoli Gardens

In Copenhagen, get your thrills with a ride on the Demon.  No trip to this city is complete without a visit to Tivoli Gardens, the city's famous amusement park and one of the most popular tourist attractions.  Estabilshed 1n 1843 it is one of the two oldest amusement parks in the world and an inspiration for Disneyland, Trivoli is ideally located in the centre of town.  Here you find a timeless atrmosphere with exotic Asian inspired architecture, lovely flower gardens and a wide range of entertainment including theatre shows, marching bands, live jazz, contemporary rock performances and, of course, thrilling amusement rides.
 
What makes Tivoli so special is the position -in the middle of Copenhagen and the combination of attractions - rides, gardens, culture, many elements in one place.

Be sure to stay into the night when Tivoli becomes a romantic fairyland with beutiful coloured lighting and fantastic firework displays.

Copenhagen Nightlife

For a different kind of amusement head out for artful cocktails and modern cuisine at the Cafe Ketchup.  This is the place to go before clubbing in Copenhagen,  Try light meals at the informal outer cafe or choose the pricier main dining room with its more sophisticated menu and open kitchen where you can watch the chefs create their materpieces. When the restaurant closes tables are pushed back and DJ's play their sets. Copenhagen's nightlife offers a huge variety of choice.
 
Karel van Mander (formerly Emma) offers plenty of variety under one roof. Housed in a nineteenth centuary town house, Karel spreads across several bars, lounges and dancefloors along with an open air terrace with couches and tables.  dance, drink or chill out its all here at this Copenhagen hotspot that feels like and exteded VIP lounge for the young beautiful people. The good thing about Emma is the open patio so you can walk out into fresh air and see the stars

In direct contrast to Karel is Nasa with an elevator that takes guest up into this legendary celebrity party club. A recent makeover has brought a new shine and high tech enhancement to an all white space age interior where an elite international crowd mingles and dance and savour champagne and exotic neon glowing cocktails. Nasa has existed since 1998 and still considers itself to be the hippest club in Northern Europe.  Three bars, futuristic furniture designed in organic shapes and an intimate dancefloor provides pure Copenhagen entertainment for those who want to see and bee seen.

Copenhagen is an internationally renowned design centre and has produced world class philosophers, atomic scientists, film makers and writers.

Speaking of design,  Radisson Blu hotels in Copenhagen are excellent examples of chic modern architecture that blends into the traditional buildings and streets of the city.
