Copenhagen

Where did the name Copenhagen come from?

Originally from the Danish name 'København', which means the 'Merchant's port' (Køber = merchant; havn = port). It may have passed via German to English, since it's 'Kopenhagen' in German. (Like other harbour cities around the rim of the Baltic sea there were traditionally a significant German minority in Copenhagen).

What is Copenhagen famous for?

If you mean from an tourism point of view:

Historically: Home to writer H. C. Andersen (from age 14). Which is probably why the statue of the Little mermaid (a character from one of his fairytales) has become the symbol of Copenhagen.

Current time : Firstly 'Tivoli' amusement park which is special due to its historical feel to it and it's unique location in the very center of town (right next to the town hall). Secondly - and as long as it lasts: The so-called free town of 'Christiania', which are a former navy barracks that was taken over by hippie squatters in the 1971 and turned in to an alternative community with a.o. open sales and use of drugs.

Holocaust
History of Europe

What happened to Copenhagen Denmark after the Holocaust?

The question seem to imply that Copenhagen as whole was a target of the Holocaust, which would be a bit of an exaggeration. There were approx. 7.000 Jews living in Denmark at the time of the German occupation - most of them in Copenhagen. With the exception of people who due to old age or illness were unable to travel, almost all Jews were saved from the Holocaust due to a number of factors (like a German official warning Danish politicians, a popular active support of the secret evacuation of Jews to coastal towns and via boats on to neutral Sweden). They stayed in Sweden until the war was over after which they returned to Denmark and Copenhagen. (PS: some apparently didn't have the patience to wait it out in Sweden and quickly snug back to Denmark and joined the resistance movement. PPS: The German official who spilled the beans, Duchwitz, became a West-German ambassador to Denmark in the 50's).

What is Copenhagen?

Could be several things :

* Capital of Denmark (and until 1814 also of Norway). Founded in the late viking age (not 1167 as most dictionaries state), and becoming capital (i.e. the permanent of the King) in the mid 15th century.

* A theatre play about the unsuccessful attempt of German scientist Werner Heisenberg to get atomic secrets from his Danish colleague Niels Bohr during WW2. After the war Heisenberg claimed he had only been pretenting to work towards a German nuclear bomb to please the nazi regime, and accordingly he actually didn't want info out of Bohr.

* The famous horse belonging to the Duke of Wellington which he rode in the battle of Waterloo (A model can be seen in the battlefield museum!). The name probably stems from the fact that the Duke (when he was still only Sir Arthur Wellesley) in 1807 had participated in the British campaign on the island of Zealand on which the city of Copenhagen is located.

* A American brand of snuff.

Is Copenhagen an overrated travel destination?

Depends on what you are looking for. It doesn't have the spectacular landscapes of Northern Scandinavia, or the variety of historic remains you find in some cities in Germany, and it's not competition for London or Paris when it comes to nightlife or shopping. What it does have is a small historic town centre that's easy to navigate on foot, some interesting sights and a relaxed ambiance.

I'd rate it "a nice place to visit" not a must-see destination

How do you travel from copenhagens airport to Copenhagen port?

'Copenhagen port' is not a welldefined location, but if you mean where the cruise ships leave from then the answer is : If you have heavy luggage you'll have to go by taxi. Otherwise, you can take the Metro at the airport, change to S-train (=regional train) e.g. line 'B' northbound, get off at Nordhavn Station and walk (I guess) approx. 500 meters.
