On the waterfront are the harbour baths of Islands Brygge – a popular spot for a summer dip. The chilly water isn’t beckoning me in today, though – Copenhagen’s summers are barely any better than London’s.

While I haven’t covered half of the city’s attractions, my humble bike has allowed me to do a near loop of a good part of the centre in a matter of hours, showing that there really is more to Copenhagen than the Little Mermaid and the royal palaces (though the latter are still worthy of a visit if you have more time).

I finish the day back in Vesterbro, for some beers and Nordic grub in Kødbyen, the former meatpacking district that’s now the buzziest nightlife zone. I’m not alone in heading to the bars by bike.

Cycling is such a normal part of life here that people travel around on two wheels at all times of day and night.

It’s this community-friendly challenge to the dominance of the motor car that sees me planning my next trip back to Copenhagen every time I visit.

Getting there

Direct flights from London Gatwick to Copenhagen start from about £91 return with easyJet.
