Tourism growth continues in Copenhagen

Danish capital saw 10% more overnight stays in Q1 2015
Despite recent poor ratings for tourism in Denmark, visitors keep flocking to Copenhagen. The Danish capital saw 10% more overnight stays in the first quarter of 2015, compared to the same period last year, says tourism organisation Visit Copenhagen.
There were 1.54 million overnight stays in Copenhagen during the quarter, 140,000 more than the same period in 2014. That makes 2015 the sixth consecutive year of progress for tourism in the city.
The figures include a 29% rise in the number of Chinese tourists, 15% more Norwegian tourists, 9% more Dutch and 8% more people from the UK.
This appears to contradict the World Economic Forum, whose recent Travel & Tourism Competitiveness Report ranked Denmark as the 27th best nation for tourism, down from 16th in 2011.
