Numerous surveys have named Denmark the Happiest Nation on Earth. These fun-loving Danes seem to have found the secret ingredient to living a well-balanced and happy life that invites visitors to enjoy the relaxed atmosphere and harmonious character of the country.
Danish history, from the Vikings to present day, is full of fascinating facts and personalities, and not more so than in capital city Copenhagen, along the many miles of pristine coastline to the picturesque countryside and among the friendly Danes. Danish design and architecture are world-renowned, from classic design, Arne Jacobsen, to modern architecture, Bjarke Ingels’ futuristic VM House. Denmark pride itself on being a world-leader in environmental technology, green living, and "pedal power". Visitors should discover the country and the cities on bike, just like the Danes. Denmark has turned into a powerhouse food destination, offering an array of gastronomic experiences; from gourmet hotdogs to the classic open-faced smørrebrød sandwich and New Nordic Cuisine. Copenhagen is at the center of it all, with a total of 15 Michelin rated restaurants and a total of 17 stars.
The capital city, Copenhagen projects a cool, laid-back lifestyle that belies its 1,000-year history. A perfect blend of innovative architecture and design mixed in perfectly with royal castles and historic buildings. Witness the legacy at Rosenborg Castle, venture into the exuberant neighborhoods of Vesterbro, Nørrebro and the Meatpacking District, sightsee Copenhagen’s artful side on full display at numerous museums. A visit to Copenhagen would not be complete without a stop at famed Tivoli Gardens, where visitors may indulge in gourmet restaurants, concerts and rides all in one. And Strøget, the longest pedestrian shopping street in Northern Europe, offers up a rainbow of avant-garde and traditional boutiques alongside cafe life.
