Cycling is a way of life in Copenhagen!  Every day, 49% of Copenhageners commute to work or studies on a bike. There are a few companies you can rent a bike and discover the many attractions at your own pace around the city.  We recommend the harbour circle, a 13 km path that runs through the Copenhagen harbours, including the iconic Nyhavn.
