Copenhagen is, and has for a long time been, the Centre of Scandinavian design. The influence of people like Arne Jacobsen, Poul Kjærholm, Jørn Utzon, Georg Jensen and Poul Henningsen among others have had a huge impact on international design and architecture. The Louisiana museum of Modern Art is an oasis 40 minutes north of Copenhagen. Copenhagen is also the fairytale capitol with HC Andersen, the Little Mermaid and Tivoli Gardens.


And then it is the food - in 2011 Rene Redzepi's Noma passed both The Fat Duck and elBulli and became the number one restaurant in the world and kept the position in the top until they closed their doors in December 2016. Noma has been followed by many exciting newcomers and a total of 18 Michelin stars in 2017 (15 restaurants).
