Wonderful, wonderful Copenhagen – Copenhagen has been named the world’s top city for travellers in 2019 by world-leading travel authority Lonely Planet.
The city receives the accolade in Lonely Planet’s Best in Travel 2019, the highly anticipated annual collection of the best travel destinations, trends, journeys and experiences to have in the year ahead.
“Denmark’s capital of cool is unstoppable” raves Lonely Planet in its description of its number one city.
Already world-renowned as a centre for Scandinavian design and architecture, the city’s booming food scene, amazing sustainable credentials and new shoulder season activities are mentioned as some of Copenhagen’s defining qualities.
Copenhagen is in the middle of a hotel boom and over the next four years, some 8,500 hotel rooms will be added to the existing 21,000 rooms while the anticipated mid-2019 completion of the Cityringen metro line means even easier cross-town adventures.
Unmissable experiences in the city recommended by Lonely Planet’s experts include:
- Savouring the region’s terroir and ingenuity at one of Copenhagen’s lauded New-Nordic restaurants such as Noma and Kadeau or more moderately priced Høst and Mes
- Catching the train to Louisiana Art Museum for its world-class collection of Danish and international modern art, modernist architecture, sculpture garden and dreamy setting.
- Indulging your inner child with an evening at Tivoli Gardens, which now offers a new Winter season throughout the month of February.
