CNN: Denmark is “most happening place on planet”

Advice for tourists visiting the resurgent city of Copenhagen

The combination of Noma being voted the best restaurant in the world for three years in a row, the widespread popularity of Danish TV dramas “The Killing” and “Borgen” and fashion designers like Malene Birger and Ivan Grundahl conquering international shows has made Denmark seem like “the most happening place on the planet”, according to CNN.
There are many great experiences for Copenhagen’s incoming tourists, CNN says. They should sample the New Nordic cuisine at restaurants such as Relae, Radio, Aamann’s, Geranium and Nimb Louise. Or get a hot dog covered with remoulade sauce, onions and ketchup at John’s Hot Dog Deli.
Visitors should move beyond picturesque Nyhavn to take in The Killing’s Vesterbro locations, where an old meat-packing plant is now an art venue and the White Town is home to late-night venues like Karriere and Fiskebar. They should see the Little Mermaid on the waterfront, the amusement park in the 170-year-old Tivoli Gardens and the zoo. Tourists can shop on Stroget, Europe’s longest pedestrian street, or explore Store Strandstraede for antiques and fashions. It’s also easy to take a road trip across the bridge to the wild beauty of Skane and the lively town of Malmo.
