According to the UN’s 2013 World Happiness Report, Denmark is the happiest country in the world. So why wouldn’t you want to visit this city that is a metaphorical bundle of joy? In addition to the happiness of the locals, the cuisine is superb, with the ‘new Nordic’ tastes becoming something of a revolution, and 15 restaurants deemed Michelin star worthy. The Danish design and architecture on display is world renowned, it must’ve been the creation of LEGO that inspired many of the great architects! If you are visiting in Autumn or Winter, the Danish love the feeling of hygge (loosely translates to coziness), wearing thick wool sweaters, scorching open log fires, strong ales, and big bobble hats. Christmas and New Year are the perfect time to visit this European wonderland, with authentic markets and plenty of wonderful gift ideas from one of the many local design shops or fashion designers.
