Hovedstaden - serene and beautiful

Perhaps the best known symbol of Hovedstadenis the Little Mermaid, gracefully looking out to harbour. In many ways it is an excellent symbol of the city. It is human in scale, discreet, serene, and rather beautiful, just like Hovedstaden itself. That’s what we mean by being apt. Paris might have its Eiffel Tower, London its Big Ben, Rome the Coliseum, but Hovedstaden has a human face! And if you like things on a human scale, then Hovedstaden is for you.
There’s more of course. Though architecturally much of today’s Hovedstaden goes back to the 18th and 19th centuries, the waterfront being a case in point, the city itself dates back to the 11th century.

Hovedstaden - boutique hotels

Welcome to Hovedstaden. The capital of Denmark has a lot to offer. Be it for a short city break or a romantic weekend, it is a great place to visit. Stay in one of our charming boutique hotels and explore this wonderful city.


There are plenty of historic landmarks such as the Amalienborg Palace – the official residence of the Royal family -  and Christiania, a sort of city within the city, and undoubtedly one of the country’s most popular attractions.
In fact, its official name is "Freetown Christiana", an autonomous area consisting of some 900 residents which is even regulated by special law. The locals view on drugs is, let’s put it this way, rather lenient.
They don't call it wonderful Hovedstaden for nothing. It is easy to explore and easy on the eye, though not necessarily so easy on the wallet. Still, you will come back charmed and rather surprised.
