How do you spell Copenhagen

What is the capital of Denmark called and how do you spell it? Some people go for Kopenhagen, others prefer Copenhagen and others yet opt for Koppenhaggen or Coppenhagen.

The correct name is København, which is the name in Danish.

However, the spelling ‘Copenhagen’ seems to be the preferred use for English speakers, while in Germany they call the capital of Denmark ‘Kopenhagen’. The French and Spanish spelling of Copenhagen is Copenhague and in Portuguese Copenhagen is called Copenhaga. So there is no right or wrong in how to spell Copenhagen. It depends on where you are from. If you spell it in English – that is Copenhagen – you will probably be most safe.
