Copenhagen

Denmark

The originator of hygge and acknowledged as the happiest city in the world, Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark, is one of the coolest places in the already incredibly cool Nordic crew. Sitting on Denmark’s coastal islands of Zealand and Amager, Copenhagen is also linked to Malmö in Southern Sweden by the Öresund Bridge, but has entirely its own vibe going on. Famous for design and its eponymous style of industrial chic, as well as its delight in all things cosy (or hygge), Copenhagen has a profound propensity towards happiness.

Throw in the famously cute coloured houses at the docks and the fact that everyone is oh so friendly, as well as, of course, its star role on the world foodie stage (looking at you, Noma) and its reputation as a must-see city is completely understandable. Cute but cool, cosy but avant-garde, put on your most striking black outfit, get out some shades, and go Nordic.
