Copenhagen City

Inner city includes Copenhagen's oldest neighborhood with small, narrow streets and crooked houses. Here you will find some of the city's most popular attractions, the political and historic centre as well as a myriad of great shopping streets, cozy cafes, restaurants, green oases, charming canals and a modern waterfront. The main artery of the city centre is the pedestrian street Strøget, that runs from City Hall Square to Kongens Nytorv.
