General Information about Copenhagen for Meeting Planners and Event Professionals
Copenhagen is the capital city of Denmark and is located on the costal islands of Amager and Zealand. It is connected to the city Malmo in Sweden by the Öresund Bridge. Copenhagen was originally a Viking fishing village founded in the 10th century and it became Denmark’s capital in the 15th century. In the early 17th century, it consolidated its position as an important center of power, famous for its armed forces. The city’s major tourist attractions include Frederiksstaden, a Rococo district from the 18th century where the Amalienborg Palace, home to the royal family, is located, the Christiansborg Palace, the Rosenborg Castle, the Tivoli Gardens, Frederik’s Church and the famous Little Mermaid’s statue. The city is also famous for its various museums such as the Danish Design Center, the Design Museum Danmark (Denmark is world renowned for its tradition in design), or the Cisterne Museum, with its impressive collections of modern glass art. Copenhagen is the most important financial and economic center of Denmark, with an economy largely based on commerce and services. Most of Copenhagen’s inhabitants (approximately 350,000) work in the service sector (with only 10,000 working in manufacturing industries). Maersk, the largest shipping company in the world, has its headquarters in Copenhagen.
