Breezing through Copenhagen

Got a few hours to kill in Denmark's captivating capital? Here's a quick way to get to know cosmopolitan Copenhagen.

STROLL through the courtyard of Amalienborg Palace, the royal couple's impressive winter residence, and down to the waterfront to see the statue of Hans Christian Andersen's famed Little Mermaid.  

EAT at Cap Horn, a charming cafe nestled snugly amidst the cobblestone streets and brightly colored houses of Copenhagen's new harbor, Nyhavn. Sample a traditional Danish smørrebrød, or hit up the pleasant canalside joint on a Sunday for the prix frixe jazz brunch (Nyhavn 21). 

VISIT the self-governing community of Christiania �" a living art museum and Denmark's independent collective �" if you dare (Christianshavn).

RIDE one of the city's 1,100 free bicycles through the quaint streets of the Latin Quarter and admire the architecture of the Round Tower. The bikes require only the deposit of a 20-kroner coin, which you will promptly get back upon its return. Exercise not your thing? Hitch a ride on a harbor bus, a hop-on hop-off boat service, instead.
