Highlight: Copenhagen is a maritime city, and one of the most beautiful and enjoyable ways to see it, is from a boat sailing down its charming canals. Take a traditional canal tour boat, be the captain of your own solar energy-driven Go Boat or go on a high octane Rib boat tour. In the summer you can even go for a swim in the many centrally located harbour baths or go to one of the many beaches nearby.
Best time: May, early June and September.
Favourite memory: Copenhagen, home to the New Nordic cuisine is a culinary hotspot and has earned itself a unique reputation as a gastronomic capital.
Favourite Venues: Ritz Carlton Copenhagen, Four Seasons Copenhagen, Hotel Nimb, Bella Center, The Royal Library and Royal Theatre.
Why it makes our list: Copenhagen is the world’s most habitable city. Copenhagen’s attractions are within walking or cycling distance from each other so no need to feel exhausted after a days sightseeing. Aarhus is easy to get to and nestles between fjords, beaches and national parks.
