What are the particular advantages of living in this city?

This is a beautiful, peaceful country and Copenhagen is a very manageable city with tons of attractions. The travel around Denmark and Scandinavia is amazing. - May 1, 2014
The weather! Okay, that was a joke. First world -- everything works, everyone speaks English, and the city is quite nice. - Feb 8, 2014
Great place to recoup from a hardship tour as everyone speaks English and everything is available, albeit opening hours are not like in the US. - Aug 7, 2011
It is convenient to both Scandinavia and mainland Europe. Crossing over to Sweden is easy via train, car or ferry, and a trip to Oslo via overnight ferry can be accomplished in a weekend. It's approximately 4 hours to Germany (driving, then ferry boat) which gives you access to the rest of mainland Europe. Inexpensive flights out of Copenhagen to the rest of Europe can be found as well. There is a lot of cultural activities in and around Copenhagen, and plenty of historical sites all over the country to keep you busy! - Jul 22, 2011
