The rumours are true: Denmark’s capital really is filled with design-savvy people with chic homes who are only a quick pedal from some of the world’s finest restaurants and creative retail shops. But there’s much more than this to enchant visitors. A recent building boom has filled the skyline with innovative and visually bamboozling residential and civic structures, the hotel industry is heating up and, thanks to the infamously sky-high taxes, the well-funded cultural scene is kicking. So saddle up: the Monocle Travel Guide to Copenhagen is on hand to take you for a ride through the city's many and varied delights.
The Monocle Travel Guide Series reveals their favourite spots in each city, from the ideal route for an early-morning run to the best streets for independent retail. Full of surprises and quirks, they also feature detailed design and architecture pages, neighbourhood walks that take you away from the crowds and choice places to eat, be it for tasty fast food or something truly celebratory.
