The charming town of Dragør is in the very south of the island of Amager, about 15km from central Copenhagen. Being on the coast, it has historically been an important fishing port since it was founded in the 12th century, and at one point had one of the largest fishing fleets in the country. Today, there is lots of said history to experience in the town, from the old and new harbours, to the fortress, to the local museums. The town itself is also steeped in history, which can be soaked up while wandering through the narrow, cobbled streets. There are several restaurants and cafes with large, sun-soaked terraces where you can while away the hours (in the summer, at least!) To get there, take the 250S bus from Copenhagen Central Station, or the 35 bus from Copenhagen airport. If the weather's nice, another option is renting a bike and cycling down through Amager Fælled, or along the east coast. Thanks to Denmark's flat landscape, it makes for a fairly easy and relaxing way to get there. Dragør is also said to be home to the happiest Danes in the country, so get ready to smile!
