I believe that the airport is a window to a city’s soul. Copenhagen Kastrup (CPN) matches up with its city quite well. It’s got all sorts of expensive things in a clean, sleek design that’s easily navigable. Honestly, it looks like a mall when you get deep into the concourse.
It is the largest airport in the Nordic region, serving as a huge hub for Northern European travel. There are only two terminals, 2 and 3 that encompass ~ 108 gates. It’s 5 miles away from the city center, and it’s so easy to get there by train (platform 2 if you want to go towards the city, take any gray train). Security is very efficient and fast, and there’s a focus on self-check in which went a lot more easily than I thought it would.
The food choices are varied and feature a lot of Copenhagen favorites and chains: Joe & the Juice, Lagkagehuset, 7-11, Starbucks, Aamaan’s Smorrebords, Caviar House (!), McDonalds, Burger King. The shopping is incredible: Hermes, Gucci, Georg Jensen, Paul Smith, Bang & Olufsen, Royal Copenhagen, Peter Beier Chocolates, Mulberry, and Burberry to name a few. And of course, since you’re in Denmark, there’s a Lego store.
