Fly from Nice to Copenhague

to understand the secret of Danish happiness

Copenhague,Fly to the island of Zealand

Two and a quarter hours… This is the duration of a Nice-Copenhagen direct flight. For those who only know the Danish capital for the Little Mermaid, this may seem like a long time, especially as this mermaid really is little. However, this famous sculpture is just one of many gems that make the city of Hans Christian Andersen so charming. Copenhagen is simultaneously gourmet, picturesque, imaginative, environmentally friendly, arty and cosy. A real Scandinavian beauty which is easily worth 135 minutes on a Nice-Copenhagen flight.

    Your Nice-Copenhagen direct flight

    As your departure approaches, you might be asking: which terminal should I go to for flights to Copenhagen from Nice? Don’t worry, the answer is simple. Nice-Copenhagen flights with both Norwegian and SAS leave from Terminal 1 of Nice Côte d'Azur Airport.

    You should get to the airport at least an hour before your flight takes off, if you already have your boarding pass and you are travelling with cabin baggage only. Otherwise, if you need to go to a check-in desk, allow an extra quarter of an hour.

    • The train: departing every 10 minutes from platform 2, for Copenhagen Central Station. The journey takes 15 minutes.
    • A taxi: you can be dropped in front of your hotel for just under 30 euros during the day, or a little more at night.
    • A hire car: go to the airport’s Car Rental Centre. There are six car hire companies there.

What to do in
Copenhague ?

If Shakespeare came back to life, he would certainly change the famous line from Hamlet: “Something is rotten in the state of Denmark.” Because there’s no denying that the oldest kingdom in Europe is also the most virtuous and pleasant of countries. In fact, the people of Denmark are among the happiest in the world. Their secret: hygge (pronounced “hoo-guh”), a life philosophy combining pleasure and cosiness. With its cafés, streets, parks, events and activities, Copenhagen is the perfect illustration of hygge. By visiting, you too can find the key to happiness.

    Whether you come alone, as a couple or as a family, and whether you stay for a weekend or a whole week, you’ll never get bored in Copenhagen. The city makes it impossible! Joyous, warm, charming and welcoming, it is quick to share its famous and wonderful lifestyle with its guests. There’s something to please everyone! Adults will enjoy the culture and lifestyle: a rock or electro concert at Vega or an opera, a museum full of canvases by great Dutch masters or French Impressionists, trying on clothes in a fashion boutique, shopping for some Danish design at Illums Bolighus, a tankard of beer in a pub, or a gastronomic meal.
    Then there are all the little pleasures and joys to be shared between generations. People of all ages will melt with pleasure when they bite into their smørrebrød: the legendary rye bread open sandwich, or a kanelsnegle, the famous Danish cinnamon roll. Visitors young and old can feel full of life and energy by ice-skating in winter on Kongens Nytorv (“King’s New Square”) or pedalling through the streets of a city that has more bicycles than cars. Kids and adults will both enjoy a cruise on the canals for a different view of the city, seeking fun and thrills on the rides at Tivoli Gardens, and dreaming of a little mermaid as they drift off to sleep.

  • What is the best time of year to visit Copenhagen?

    Snow, blue skies, early sunsets, the lights of the city, the delicious aroma of cinnamon, ice rinks and frozen lakes: Copenhagen is stunning in winter. No wonder it was a life-long source of inspiration for Hans Christian Andersen, the king of fairy tales. It’s cold, of course! But that doesn’t stop the locals living their lives and going out as usual. Anyway, coffee and hot chocolate are never as comforting, as hygge, as they are in this season. Nevertheless, if you don’t fancy the cold, travel in spring or summer. Walks in the woods, window shopping for Danish design, and a cool beer will be even better at this time of year. What’s more, this is when the big events happen: the Jazz Festival, the Opera Festival, Copenhagen Cooking with good food at reduced prices, and for something a bit wilder, Copenhagen Pride in mid-August.
