Mikkel Aarø-Hansen, CEO, Wonderful Copenhagen, said, ”In Copenhagen we enjoy our own special way of life. Cycling is our preferred mode of transport. We swim in the harbour's clean waters. We love gastronomy and great dining experiences – no matter if it’s Michelin starred or street food and we are very into culture and design. The city lives and breathes these things. And this is why Lonely Planet recommends that you come to Copenhagen and join us in enjoying our way of life. We’re really excited to welcome even more guests,”
Dennis Englund, VisitDenmark’s Director in the UK & US, said, “This accolade highlights the city’s fundamental traits and iconic characteristics and proves that Copenhagen is one of Europe’s hottest destinations. The city is renowned for its constant innovation in culture, design, architecture andgastronomy and as the epitome for Danish culture, the same characteristics apply to the rest of Denmark where exciting new hotels, restaurants and attractions are set to open in 2019.”
