trip, flying into Copenhagen to see the sights in the nation’s capital will allow you and your children to get a good taste

of Denmark.

London on such airlines as easyjet, British Airways, KLM, and Swiss International Airline.

S-tog trains and its joint zone fare system allows you to transfer between each of these modes of transpiration with the

same ticket.
