Copenhagen Bike Town
Famous for its green, environmental profile and bike-friendly infrastructure, the capital of Denmark has twice been voted the most liveable city in the world: In fact, the city paid a lot of attention to the needs of cyclists, making the bike lanes or “Copenhagen lanes”, as they are fondly called, well demarcated and fully separated.
Copenhagen provides everything a tourist’s heart desires: Great museums (Glyptotheque, National Museum), fancy and exquisite food (Noma restaurant), budget accommodation, and interesting places like Christiania, the “hippie town” established in the borough of Christianshaven in the Kingdom’s capital.
The city of Copenhagen is relatively small. Dense urban proximities and short distances make cycling the quickest way to get around. Every corner of the city can easily be reached in about an hour. The area around Copenhagen is larger and suitable for longer tours (20-75 km). Suburban trains allow free transfer of bikes, leaving almost no limits to your touring needs.
For cyclists it is nice to know that Copenhagen is flat. So flat indeed that bridges are probably the steepest objects around. The highest natural point in Copenhagen is Valby-Bakke or Valby-Hill, 17 m above sea level. You might not notice it unless you’re riding a fully loaded cargo bike to the zoo, which is situated at ”the summit” of this hill.
