About Copenhagen
Copenhagen: The ancient capital of Denmark – but also a vibrant modern city

Although the actual date of Copenhagen’s founding has been lost to the mists of time, a key milestone was in the year 1160 A.D. when King Valdemar conveyed the city to Bishop Absalonas a token of his gratitude. 

Copenhagen is though now a vibrant, modern city with plenty to offer visitors:
  • Copenhagen is a must-visit destination for foodies, attracted by the new Nordic food movement that has influenced and created a flourishing restaurant scene in the city. New Nordic Cuisine hit international headlines when Noma was appointed the World’s Best Restaurant in 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2014.
  • Cycling is Copenhageners’ preferred way to get to work or school, and sustainability and renewable energy influences several aspects of life in the metropolitan area. An array of wind turbines near downtown Copenhagen delivers clean energy to businesses and homes, and if tempted, you can take a dip directly in the clean waters of Copenhagen Harbour – under the watchful eyes of professional lifeguards.
  • Copenhagen is an attractive cruise ship destination and turnaround point in the Baltic Region, expected to attract 850,000 cruise visitors by the end of 2017.
  • With the busiest airport in Scandinavia serving close to 80 000 passengers a day and more than 29 million passengers in 2016, Copenhagen is an international hub with more than 160 direct flights to long and short haul destinations. The airport is situated close to the city centre – only a short, inexpensive ride away by train or metro.
  • At 1.2 million inhabitants, Copenhagen is the largest city in a metropolitan area that stretches as far as southwestern Sweden. Home to 3.9 million people, Greater Copenhagen is also referred to as the Øresund Region, taking its name from the narrow stretch of water that separates Denmark from Sweden.

The Danish Gambling Authority looks very much forward to welcoming you to Copenhagen from the 17th to 20th of September 2018.
