The Berlitz Pocket Guide to Copenhagen has been fully revised and updated and provides all the information you need to enjoy this exciting and historic city. Clear colour-coded sections enable you to locate the information you need easily, and full colour fold-out maps provide instant orientation wherever you are. The Top 10 attractions are highlighted on an illustrated, double-page spread, capturing everything you simply cannot afford to miss, such as Christiansborg Palace, Tivoli Pleasure Gardens, Nyhavn harbour and Edvard Eriksen's famous statue of Hans Christian Andersen's The Little Mermaid, helping you to make the most of your stay. The comprehensive 'Where to Go' chapter covers the entire city, with recommended excursions for those wanting to travel a little further afield, such as the nearby Viking town of Roskilde. From tips on sampling the local produce at Carlsberg Brewery to exploring Christiania's 'alternative' community, there are plenty of ideas for things to do, including activities for children. A dedicated 'Eating Out' section provides information on local specialities and useful Danish vocabulary to help you read the menu and place orders with ease. Copenhagen has a long and interesting history, all of which is explored within the 'History' section, along with a timeline of historical landmarks, from Viking times to the modern day, for quick reference. An invaluable 'Travel Tips' section provides an A-Z summary of practical information and expert travel advice on transport, climate, religion, money, health and much more. You will also find a detailed listings section with recommended hotels and restaurants to suit all budgets. Beautiful colour photographs accompany the text throughout, making this guide a pleasure to read before, during and after your visit.
