Copenhagen Airport is one of the finest airports worldwide due to its design and architecture.

Just take a look at the floor in the transit area: It is covered with shiny hardwood floors.

The combination of these floors with the steel and glass of its structure gives a unique atmosphere thanks to its Danish Nordic design.
