Living Like a Dane in Copenhagen

Published Date Author: , October 10th, 2014

Little Mermaid Copenhagen DenmarkGay Pride is a huge deal in Copenhagen. Denmark was the first country in the world to legally recognize same-sex unions, and this year the city by the sea was still buzzing from its Eurovision high a few weeks earlier. Conchita Wurst won the coveted competition on Danish soil, a testament to the open arms and open minds of the nation.

When locals and visitors alike aren’t gathering in the city center to celebrate Gay Pride in August, the city is proudly home to a number of gay bars and gay-friendly businesses. It doesn’t matter where you go in Copenhagen, you’re sure to be welcomed like family. Here are some extra tips for living like a local in Copenhagen.

1. Ride the city-wide cycle paths

Cyclists own the streets of Copenhagen. Expect to hear the upcoming ‘ding-aling’ of Danes racing past on their morning errands – but be far from intimidated! Find a GoBike stand at Koebenhavn station and join the welcoming locals on the speedway – it’s the best (and most fun!) way to see all the city has to offer.
