Welcome to Copenhagen
Copenhagen is not only the capital of Denmark. It is a cultural and economic centre of Northern Europe. More than 1,2 million citizens live in the greater Copenhagen region.
The city is located on the Danish Island „Saeland“ (Danish: Sjælland) and next to the „Øresund“ - a Baltic sea seagate and natural borderline to Sweden. Due to this geographic location, Copenhagen – together with the Swedish city Malmö – represents the binational „Øresund Region“. It is a unique metropolis area, where two countries and cities are connected via the 8 km „Øresund Bridge“.
The Copenhagen Palaces Christiansborg and Amalienborg are the seat of the Danish Parliament and the residence of the Danish Queen Margrethe II. Architecture, design and music make Copenhagen an outstanding cultural hotspot in Northern Europe. It is famous for its innovative improvements which can be seen and experienced throughout the city.
Also, Copenhagen has great museums to offer, for example Louisiana and The National Gallery of Denmark. The Royal Danish Opera, located directly at the habor front, is combining modern Danish architecture with international performances. The main sightseeing spots and touristic attractions are the Tivoli Gardens, Christiansborg, and of course the „Little Mermaid“ - the famous sculpture of Edvard Eriksen at the waterside.
The University of Copenhagen is offering a wide range of academic disciplines. With over 40,000 students and more than 9,000 employees, the University of Copenhagen is one of the largest institutions of research and education in the Nordic countries. Due to short distances within the city of Copenhagen, its good public transportation system, and especially the well developed cycle paths, Copenhagen is a convenient place for meetings.
WFSBP has selected the Bella Center for the upcoming WFSBP Congress 2017. It is a great place for scientific exchange, communication and socialising with colleagues.
