We’re trying something a little different this time around. In the true Scandinavian spirit, we are offering a ‘smorgasbord’ that offers a choice a 4 night/5 day ‘taste’ of Copenhagen or a full 7 day/6 night week of experiences.The reason? Two sides of the same coin—sometimes getting away for a whole week is just too hard. Then again once you do manage to break out some time—why not make the most of it? Come to Berlin--and stay for Copenhagen! There is no wrong choice on this one.And why Copenhagen? Oh, there are many, many, many reasons...for just a few...
