Lonely Planet says this is the ONE city you need to visit in 2019 (and it's less than two hours away!)

If you haven't been yet, 2019 is the year you should make this city a priority.

We are talking about Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark, which, in all honesty, is one of my all-time favourite cities. And not just because I am biased, being a Scandi myself.

No, this gorgeous city, which Lonely Planet has hailed as the one city to visit in 2019, really is a must-see, especially if you are into design, architecture, shopping and food.

With its modern design, 15 Michelin-starred restaurants and extremely bike-friendly culture, it's no surprise that Denmark's capital has topped Lonely Planet's top 10 cities to visit in 2019 list.

For foodies, the street food scene is amazing, especially in the area of Refshaleøen, a former industrial area with a food and craft market, Reffen and in 2018, Noma, the restaurant that officially put New Nordic cuisine on the worldwide stage, triumphantly returned home to Copenhagen.

And don't even think about missing the Tivoli Gardens theme park (one of the world's oldest).

Fancy some sports in the city? There is a new artificial ski slope and hiking area on top of a waste management centre, and when you are done with that, you can literally spend days on end exploring the amazing shops, tiny bakeries filled with baked goodies and just admire the amazing style this city has got by the bucketload.
