Copenhagen is technically a city, and a big one at that, but it still retains a village atmosphere with its fairytale roofs, church spires, narrow cobbled streets and picturesque mix of architectural styles. As a link between Scandinavia and Europe there are plenty of historic attractions and monuments too, along with the malls and restaurants you’d expect to find in any modern metropolis.
This award-winning airport is one of the most popular in Australia, taking business and leisure travellers to destinations all over the globe. Qatar Airways flights from Melbourne take you to our hub in Doha, and the sheer comfort and luxury of Melbourne Airport means that your journey is a pleasure from the very start.

Arriving in Melbourne
Qatar Airways flights from Melbourne depart from Terminal 2, which handles all outbound international flights. An expansion scheme was completed in 2012, providing greater space for retail outlets and passenger lounges.
Because Qatar Airways uses the new A380 Airbus, most departures will be from Gate 9 and11.
Facilities and amenities
The Air Lounge in Terminal 2 offers passengers a relaxing location to grab a quick bite before boarding their Qatar Airways flight from Melbourne.
A number of Australian produce outlets are also located in Terminal 2, as well as luxury accessories retailers and shops selling everything from surfing paraphernalia to perfumes and watches. There is also a large number of food options, from small cafés to excellent restaurants serving international cuisine.
Regarded by the two million inhabitants and the millions of visitors who come to the Danish capital every year as a “Friendly old girl of a town”, Copenhagen is a city with plenty of character and a unique charm.
Big enough to offer visitors a truly memorable experience, but still small enough to feel intimate and charming, Copenhagen is one of Scandinavia’s jewels.
Book a flight to Copenhagen with Qatar Airways and you’ll land in a city that takes a decidedly laid-back approach to life, but with traditional values of courtesy and warmth towards strangers underpinning their culture. The result is a destination that will draw you back time and again.
Copenhagen’s iconic monument has to be the Little Mermaid, a sublimely beautiful bronze statue by Edvard Eriksen that celebrates the life of Danish author Hans Christian Andersen.
But this culturally important city also has plenty of other attractions to offer, including a thriving arts scene that’s ably represented by a plethora of galleries and exhibitions. The Danish National Gallery is a great starting point, or visit the Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek gallery for a selection of more classical paintings.
A great, hands-on science attraction is the Experimentarium, while the highly regarded Copenhagen Zoo focuses on conservation, and has an iconic tower that stands in the centre of the zoo.
One of Copenhagen’s most recognisable landmarks is Rundetårn (the Round tower). A climb to the top is well worth it for the spectacular views across the city. And to find out more about Denmark’s rich history visit the Nationalmuseet in Indre By to see an extensive collection of Viking artefacts and treasures.
