For the 14th year, Lonely Planet editors asked for nominations from its staffers and hundreds of contributors from around the world and picked 10 cities, regions, countries and value destinations to recommend for its top 10 cities to visit in 2019 list – it’s no surprise that Denmark’s capital has topped the list.
With its modern design, 15 Michelin-starred restaurants and extremely bike-friendly culture the city has plenty more to offer. Copenhagen‘s street food scene is booming on Refshaleøen, a former industrial area with a food and craft market, Reffen. Tivoli Gardens theme park is one of the world’s oldest parks of this kind and is offering plenty of entertainment for young and old throughout the year. There’s a new artificial ski slope and hiking area on top of a waste management center, and the Danish Architectural Centre has moved into BLOX, Rem Koolhaas’ cultural center. Noma, the restaurant that officially put New Nordic cuisine on the worldwide stage, triumphantly returned home to Copenhagen in 2018. But beyond the new and the bold, Copenhagen is one of those cities where you can never run out of things to do.
