Location & Culture

Click to Open

Copenhagen has undergone a transformation in the past decade and has emerged as a “must-stop” destination in Europe. Fine dining, natural wines, and its reputation as an environmentally friendly city has earned top billing from foodies, students, and those seeking refuge in one of the “happiest countries in the world.” Despite playing host to over 600,000 residents, Copenhagen retains an old-world, small village feel – with more bicycles than cars traveling its streets. Students discover and endless array of cultural activity, history, architecture, and more, in one of Europe’s safest capitals.

CIEE wants all our students to feel welcomed, supported, and empowered to succeed while studying abroad. Local CIEE staff have provided details about conditions and cultural attitudes that students with specific identities might encounter in Copenhagen.

Professional Development
