Meet Copenhagen, the cultural capital of the North

See the Copenhagen Travel Pass page for details on discounted transportation by bus, train and Metro in the Greater Copenhagen area during the congress.


With an abundance of world-renowned museums, music venues, festivals and historical sites, Copenhagen is full of character. And among the picturesque cobbled squares, canals and copper spires, the city boasts the best shopping, restaurants and nightlife in Northern Europe.


Copenhagen is often labelled the ‘world’s most livable city’, the title supported with many key reasons. Among them were safety, tolerance, green initiatives, international connectivity, creative environments, relaxed lifestyle, democratic design and the active use of city spaces to name just a few.


From marauding Vikings and the world’s oldest monarchy to philosophical pioneers and the iconic Little Mermaid – Copenhagen is the image of a modern-day fairy tale.


Danish design is internationally recognized for its clean lines, advanced manufacturing processes and use of quality materials – resulting in timeless products, buildings and civic spaces found in the city.


Copenhagen is home to the recent boom in New Nordic cuisine and has earned itself a unique reputation as a gastronomic capital. The city offers an impressive choice of a constantly evolving Copenhagen’s food and the restaurant scene caters to all budgets and tastes.


Copenhagen truly is a green city – with climate-friendly citizens to match. In fact, Copenhagen has excellent public transport and one of the world’s most dedicated cycling cultures. In line with this, we are committed to make ESOT2019 a sustainable event.


ESOT is proud and honoured to feature a brand new logo for the ESOT2019 Congress in Copenhagen designed by the famous Danish designer and artist Per Arnoldi.
