Say see you later to the Big Apple and get set to discover Denmark’s cool capital when you take a flight from New York to Copenhagen.
Trade the Statue of Liberty, Coney Island, the Flatiron Building, Central Park and the Guggenheim for Amalienborg, Dyrehavsbakken, the Little Mermaid, Nyhavn and the National Museum of Denmark. Swap the bright lights and hustle and bustle of Times Square for the laid-back alternative vibe of Freetown Christiania.
Change baseball for football, pastrami on rye for smørrebrød, Manhattan cocktails for the potato and grain-based liquor Akvavit, and New York hot dogs for Danish bacon. Don’t forget to exchange your dollars for Danish kroner too.
New York and Copenhagen have similar seasons, with warm, sunny summers and cold, snowy winters.
