Copenhagen, the Capital of Denmark, boasts Gothic and baroque architecture mixed with a touch of the modern cutting edge. Another reason to visit is that Denmark has been named the happiest country, and Copenhagen as one of the world's most liveable cities.
Park your rental car near the Nyhavn or New Harbour. This colourful and picturesque district is home to many fine restaurants, great cafes and trendy boutiques. Stop for a delicious coffee, grab some lunch or take a stroll down the boardwalk along the canal. This area is known for its friendly locals and vivid atmosphere.
Be sure to visit the breathtaking Church of Our Saviour. This baroque church was built in 1695. Climb up the spiral corkscrew tower and be rewarded with a stunning panoramic view of the city. Inside the church, you'll find a beautiful altarpiece that has been decorated with angels and is surrounded by an arrangement of cloud formations and gilded beads.

Copenhagen is a great place to explore more of Scandinavia and Western Europe. Travel to other Western European countries is usually permitted with no additional fees or restrictions for most vehicle categories. Some categories, such as luxury cars, have certain restrictions and you must check that your planned itinerary will be permitted with the vehicle you book. Some suppliers also have restrictions on travelling to the United Kingdom. You can contact us for more information on multi-country rentals.
There are car parks in Copenhagen close to most of the main attractions, from the main shopping streets to the Opera House. On street parking is usually only permitted for one hour. You buy a parking disc from outlets including petrol stations and post offices and this is then displayed on your dashboard.
The motorways in Denmarks are toll-free, though if you are planning on driving to Sweden, there are tolls applicable for driving across the Great Belt Bridge which joins Copenhagen with Malmo.
