Add Copenhagen, Denmark to your bucket list for this year. Lonely Planet named it the number one city to visit in 2019, so explore the city’s culture, history, and food scenes. With its new initiatives, diversifying food scene and modern architecture, there’s no better time to start planning a trip to Copenhagen.
Bailey Freeman, destinaton editor for Lonely Planet, explains why Copenhagen received the top spot for Best in Travel. Copenhagen has something for every traveler.
FOOD: Noma, the world-famous restaurant, has new premises with an urgan garden. Noma is responsible for pioneering the new Nordic cuisine, which has influenced food all over the world. Food halls, like Reffen, are developing. Consider trying some of Copenhagen’s popular dishes like rød pølse, which is like sausage; smørrebrød, which is like an open-faced sandwich; or frikadeller, which are Danish meatballs.
ARCHITECTURE: Copenhagen is known for all of its amazing historic buildings in Nyhavn and The Round Tower. Now, modern architecture is coming to the forefront, too. You can see more modern installations in public spaces, like Circle Bridge. There’s a dedication to both form and function and design. Trampolines are even embedded in sidewalks, and urban parks are filled with art.
SUSTAINABILITY: Copenhagen has demonstrated a dedication to sustainability. Finding environmentally friendly ways to explore the city, like by riding bikes. It’s a bicycle-friendly city, and it has more bikes than people.
Copenhagen can get expensive to visit, but there are ways to get around that. Go to a tourism office and get the Copenhagen Card, which will give you access to museums, attractions across the city for free or at discounted prices. If you want to try top-end food, go for lunch. At lot of times, menus are just as inspired but are at a lower price.
