Copenhagen – Top places to travel to in 2020

Written by: Travel Inn

Copenhagen doesn’t need to sell itself as a worthy travel destination, what with its long summer days, hygge-filled winters, and unparalleled food scene. Yet the city keeps finding ways to become more travel-friendly, most recently with the extension of the City Ring Line subway line. Areas like the leafy Frederiksberg neighborhood and industrial Nordhavn waterfront are now much more accessible by rail—major for those scared of tackling Copenhagen’s busy bike highways. (Skilled pedalers, however, can breeze down the new Lille Langbro, a pedestrian-and-cyclist swing bridge, which now links both sides of the inner harbor.) Last August the city unveiled Kongens Nytorv, a plaza that for years was hidden under scaffolding. Located in the heart of Copenhagen, the roundabout is a one-stop shop for historically significant buildings like the Royal Danish Theatre, as well as Christmas and flea markets. Copenhagen continues to prove it’s a sustainability pioneer. In Refshaleøen, on the outskirts of town, the long-awaited Bjarke Ingels–designed CopenHill, a power plant that turns waste into energy, has finally opened. It has a rooftop ski slope made with Neveplast, a synthetic snow that makes it possible to ski year-round. This neighborhood has also become one of Copenhagen’s most exciting food destinations, thanks to the Alchemist, a Nordic molecular-gastronomy restaurant from pioneering young chef Rasmus Munk. It has the same investor as the three-Michelin-starred Geranium, and is just as hard to get into. Nearby, chef Kamilla Seidler has opened Restaurant Lola, a culturally inclusive restaurant where staff from around the world prepare globally inspired cuisine. There’s development in the hotel scene too. Scandic will open a property in the creative Nørrebrø neighborhood in October. Across town, opposite the Central Station, Villa Copenhagen will debut in a building from 1912, and strive to be the greenest hotel in the city. It will adhere to the U.N.’s sustainable development goals, which is a rarity among five-star hotels. As a whole, the Danish capital aims to be carbon neutral by 2025. And at this rate, it seems possible. —Mary Holland
