Copenhagen is a harbour city spread across two main islands - Zealand and Amager - and several islets. The city faces a strait of water between Denmark and Sweden that connects the North Sea with the Baltic Sea. The Danish capital can be entered from the Swedish city of Malmo by a bridge stretching over 25,000 feet across the water, offering some spectacular views.
Copenhagen lies within the oceanic climate zone and is affected by changeable weather conditions throughout the year. The city enjoys warm summers (with an average 20°C) and mild winters (with an average -2°C). Snowfall can be observed in a few of the winter months and snow seldom covers the city for long.
Copenhagen Airport in Kastrup is the largest one in Scandinavia and lies in close proximity to the Danish capital's city centre. The Copenhagen Airport hosts both intercontinental and European flights and is the main hub for SAS and Norwegian. You can easily reach the airport from the city centre by train, underground or bus.

One thing to remember while driving in Denmark is to turn the lights on; this applies all year round. In Copenhagen, like in any other metropolis, it is best to avoid driving to the city centre during peak hours.
There are three parking zones in the Danish capital: red, green, and blue. The closer you get to the city centre, the more you have to pay for parking your hired vehicle. Parking on public holidays is free. You can check convenient car parks in Copenhagen online.
