Copenhagen an Eco Friendly City

Copenhagen = Cycle Friendly and Eco - Conscious

One of the first things visitors to Copenhagen will notice, is the number of bicycles around the city. More than a third of residents use their bike to travel to school, work or other locations and there are more than 300km of cycle paths in and around the capital. Cycling is also popular in neighbouring Malmö. Both cities are very flat and have excellent cycle lanes making cycling safe and enjoyable.

There are around 2,000 free bikes available at 110 stations throughout the city and some hotel chains offer cycle hire. Another environmentally friendly way to see Denmark is by kayak, with tours operated on Christianshavn's canal by Kajak-Ole.

A number of Copenhagen's hotels including big chains such as Scandic Hotels and Radisson SAS Copenhagen also take an environmental approach to business, pursuing initiatives such as water conservation and extensive recycling and offering organic foods for breakfast.
