Since its humble beginnings Copenhagen has involved into one of the worlds cleanest, most sustainable and livable cities. Copenhagen's compact size, timely public transportation and emphasis on cycling and walking make it a highly accessible city for visitors to explore.

Combine these attributes with a burgeoning food scene and excellent art museums and Copenhagen should be high on every travelers list.
