Back in the 10th century, Copenhagen was only a Viking fishing village. Now it is the capital city of Denmark and recognised as one of the most environmental friendly city in the wrorld. It is amazing to see that in 2025 Copenhagen aims to be carbon-neutral. District heating -for example- will be done by waste incineration and biomass. Cars will be run on electricity or biofuel in this year. It is already supported with 4 % of green energy contributed to a large offshore wind farm. It also aims to be smoke-free by this time and to serve 90% organic food in all daycares, schools and homes for older people. rnrnPublic Transport The airport of Copenhagen is well connected to the city centre by metro and main line railway services.
