Copenhagen has much more to offer to tourists than just Kastellet, the National Museum, the statue of the Little Mermaid or the hippie community of Christiania. Bikes are part of its magic and they really enable visitors to feel the city's pulse. Plus, with a well-developed sense of humor, anyone is granted to experience Denmark at its best.

Hey, are there really no restriction for tourists to use the public bikes in Copenhagen? and why is that hippie community called Christiania? it sounds so.. religious ;)

You can use the bikes as you please, as long as you put them back to one of the stands when you're done - an easy way to solve some of the envieronmental prob's every country experience these days. It's called Christiania because in the old days the Norway was a part of Denmark and the capital of Norway was called Christiania - it was a city with no trading restrictions - somehow a liberal city... complicated, but hope it's answer enough for you?;)
when it comes to the article I must say that Denmark is much more than that - best visited in the summer if you want to experience the Danes at their best. As someone else added: we do tend to comunicate with humor, sometimes a bit strange, but almost never to be vicious... New harbour (Nyhavn) is nice to go to in the summer or spring for a cold carlsberg or coffee in the special atmosphere as goes it for the brew of iceland (Islands brygge) where you can bring your own grill and sit on the grass amongst the youth of Copenhagen. Sometimes there are live bands and sometimes they put up a big screen for movies, check posters all over town. I live in Copenhagen and I love it! Come along, I'm sure you will too...

Islands brygge sounds like fun.. Is it a public park?
and I have also heard that the legal drinking age in Denmark is 14... Is that true?

but you have to be 18 to drink in bars... and some places you have to be 21.. but its only some places...

it's not a real park, it's more like a lawn with trees and a basketball court as well right next to the canal... uh, and there's a area where you can take a swim in the water after a hot day of shopping.

oh, thank you guys for answering, I also thought 14 is quite a precocious age to start consuming alcohol. Do they still allow commercializing drugs in Christiania and how come it is not so popular as the Amsterdam red-light district?

Denmark is a country I loved to stay. It is not about the places, but about the people and their take on life.
I don't know about legal drinking age, but beer is sooo cheap :) ...
what else, for two months while i stayed there i lived in the former red-district of CPH. Really cool place for someone as down to eatrh as me.
