Copenhagen is a family friendly city with museums, cultural attractions, a lively nightlife, cafés, restaurants, and entertainment. Copenhagen is a city with much charm, as reflected in its canals, narrow streets, and charming houses that have stood for hundreds of years. A prominent point of orientation in the city is the main rail station, Central Station, which is bordered on the west by the primary hotel district and to the northeast by the ever popular Tivoli Gardens. Just north of Tivoli is Rahuspladsen, the central city square. To the east is the city's waterfront, including the canal district of Christianshavn.
Between April and September, the city provides over 2000 bicycles which can be borrowed from one of the over 150 racks located at strategic points. A coin deposit unlocks the rack and is refunded when the cycle is returned. For sightseeing beyond the city there is an excellent and efficient public transportation system. The most affordable way to see Copenhagen is with a Copenhagen card. Choose one for a 24, 48 or 72 hour period and enjoy free travel by public transportation, free entry into more than 60 museums and attractions in the greater Copenhagen area and discounts on many others.
