An increasing number of travelers are heading to the Danish capital. This compact city is easy to explore on foot or bicycle, and it’s filled with picturesque parks that are ideal for people watching for joining in a game of football with the locals. People are especially friendly here, perhaps because they’re living in what’s consistently rated among the happiest countries in the world. Check out the Danish Crown Jewels in Rosenborg Castle and enjoy New Nordic fare in one of the many outstanding restaurants.
