Perfect Weekend Getaway to Copenhagen

SAS logo


Press Release Date: 23rd March 2010

Fancy a weekend of shopping & relaxing in ideal surroundings?

Only 14 minutes from the airport to the city centre via metro, Copenhagen is the perfect city break destination. Fly out on a Friday or a Thursday evening and back again on the Sunday without sacrificing those all important holiday days.

Enjoy a spot of shopping on Strøget, the longest pedestrian shopping street in Europe at just over one kilometre. Pulsating with lively buskers and an abundance of shopping from high-end designers to more “recessionista” friendly outlets, there is something for everyone.

When you’re finished pounding the pavement and you’ve shopped ’til you drop, take a stroll down to Nyhavn Canal where you can choose to sit back and relax in one of the many bars and cafes overlooking the picturesque 17th century harbour.

For those who feel like taking in a different view of Nyhaven, you can also take your sightseeing to the waters on a guided boat tour.
