Copenhagen

Copenhagen is Scandinavia’s largest city and is awash with innovative architecture, creative designs and interesting attractions - perfect for youth groups.

Voted World’s best City for Design 2016, this remarkable city will be of great interest to those studying Art and Design. Students can visit the excellent art galleries and explore the many examples of cutting edge architecture that are constantly being created. But as well as being at the forefront of modern design, Copenhagen has a rich historical heritage, from stunning renaissance castles to royal palaces; there are many historical sites worth exploring. Depending on the time of year, sports students should catch an ice hockey, football or even handball game.

Completely separate from Denmark, Christiana was founded in the 70’s by a group of hippies and is now a vibrant and colourful self-contained society full of workshops, art galleries and cafes. For a full experience, we advise taking a tour with one of our trusted guides rather than visiting independently.

Other hotels and hostels are available as well so if you have a preference, just let us know. We always try to offer a mixture of evening meals so you get a variation rather than commit you to the hotel every night. Packed lunches can be provided as well.
