The Danes are a pretty sophisticated bunch, and responsible for far more that we consider stylish than any population of just 5.5 million people has any right to be. Copenhagen is the natural choice of destination to best appreciate this characteristic cool and confidence, and few capitals so well sum up their nation as this compact city on the sea.

Why we think you’ll love it

  • Copenhagen is quite possibly the most stylish city in Europe, and a boat tour from iconic Nyhavn is the best way to see all of it's iconic sights
  • The art, design and cultural sights extend further than just the country's capital: Louisiana art gallery, just north of Copenhagen, is worth a visit, as is Hamlet's castle, Kronborg, which sits in the coastal spot of Helsingør
  • Copenhagen is a highly conscious green city, so cycling is a must - it's the Danes' mode of transport of choice
