Copenhagen — Copenhagen has all the ingredients of a fairy tale: cobbled streets, squares with flower stalls and fountains, redbrick buildings with mullioned windows, and clock towers that chime the hour. Even the Danish currency, the krone, is decorated with images of mythical creatures. But thankfully it’s not all about the past. Right now, Copenhagen is booming thanks to a revitalized design scene and some of the most thrilling dining in Europe.

Why Go

For eclectic buildings, castles, and royal palaces coupled with the pulsating nightlife of this clean, laid-back city.

“If you have an early flight, choose a hotel close to the airport the night before. Starting a trip on too little sleep is never fun.”
