Introduction to Copenhagen and Denmark

Dear Customer & Visitor

Bishop Absalon
Once Upon a Time...
Once upon a time in the fairytale Kingdom of Denmark and under the reign of King Valdemar the Great (King of Denmark 1157-1182) - there was a little fishing village and settlement on the banks of the east coast of Sealand. The name of this little populated area was called - Harbour - (Havn in Danish) and was inhabited by 200-500 people around 1150 AC. When King Valdemar I - became King in 1157 - he gave the little community to his foster brother and adviser Bishop Absalon - with the mission to build a small - but solid brick-build Castle around the city from year 1160 -1167 - on the isle call “Slotsholmen” - to protect trade and the citizens - as they were frequently being harassed and pestered by predatory expeditions and raids conducted by the Norwegian ravagers - German Wends and the more abusive Hanseatic League.

History of Copenhagen

Scandinavia's largest capital

This was the foundation of a new city in 1167 - which later was called "Hafnia" - and since became Scandinavia’s largest capital. The fortification of the little community was very effective - and trading activities started to flourish and develop - while the growth of the population exceeded about 6.000 around 1400 AC. The little town was then renamed to what we know as Copenhagen "Købmændenes Havn" - the Harbour of Merchants - and then later named in Danish - "København."

Hafnia - Copenhagen

In Latin - Copenhagen is still called "Hafnia" - which was the first name of the settlement about 1000 years ago. Copenhagen has since grown and turned into a modern international metropolis with 1.8 million inhabitants - but is still a historical and cultural City. Just like in one of Hans Christian Andersen’s famous fairytales - where the ugly duckling turns into a beautiful swan - which is the national Bird of Denmark.

The true Ambassadors of Copenhagen

This little story about Copenhagen ends by encouraging tourists and travellers to visit Copenhagen and experience the Copenhageners - who are the born and true Ambassadors plus the prime tourist attraction of the city. When you are facing a genuine Copenhagener - you’ll have probably met a Jensen - Nielsen - Hansen - Pedersen or Andersen - which is the most common surnames in Copenhagen - who are among the few inhabitants in this world that speak Danish - and owns a bicycle or two - riding happily around in one of the most admirable and exemplary Welfare States in the World. That's what makes Copenhagen so cool for visitors - tourists and especially for Copenhageners. Just take an online tour through our Copenhagen Portal website
- and learn much more about the Danish capital - and Denmark too.

Cycling & Driving in Denmark
"The Ugly Duckling"
The Copenhageners just love their bikes - which is the prime form of healthy transportation - in any type of weather conditions

The Oresund Bridge
From Northern Scandinavia - to the end of the world - and back again!
The 16 km Oresund Bridge and Tunnel that links Denmark with Sweden - Norway and Finland via Copenhagen - is one of the longest combined tunnel - road and railroad bridges in the world - that transport passengers over and under the Oresund Strait. Actually - it is now possible to drive a car from the most northern borders of Scandinavia through Denmark and all the way to the end of the world and back - without using any type of ferry connection. There are almost 2.200 bridges connecting Denmark.

Introduction to Copenhagen and Denmark
Denmark - A little country - but a very big subject
Even though this is a primary site about Copenhagen - we also want to portrait Denmark with a brief tour through the Danish Kingdom and its history - as well as describing the democratic values - religion - and the thousand years of cultural heritage that binds this nation together and contributed to build up the Danish kingdom by many hard working generations. Even though being a little country - Denmark is one of the biggest contributors - when it comes to founding assistance to the Third World and undeveloped countries. The Danes just adore their country - and pay happily for their welfare system - in spite of the fact that they are the most heavily taxed people in the world.
