COPENHAGEN OUR BELOVED
The capitol of cool
Our founder is born in Copenhagen, and has a deep connection to its history interveawed with his own life story there. The city is so small that you can see everything in a day on a bike, and the city center is full of old buildings and trendy stores. Many hotel brands has seen the potential in Copenhagen, and are setting up camp, so to say.
From Copenhagen's origin as a hamlet which hardly anyone had ever heard of to a position as the dazzling capital of the Danish Empire, and to its current position as one of the world's most talked about as well as sung of cities is a colourful history. Copenhagen is Scandinavia's largest city and its history goes way back. The reigning monarch Queen Margrethe II can trace her ancestry back to the Viking Age and that makes Denmark the world's oldest kingdom. Among cobbled squares, narrow streets and old buildings the history lives with us to this day. The photo shows the inside of Rundetaarn, an anscient oberservatory tower that was build for the king to ride to the top in a horse carriage.
Denmark is considered one of the happiest countries in the world, and there is a reason to it. We have a fantastic welfare system, where everybody can go all the way to university for free (if they have the talent) and everybody can go to hospital for free. Our little country is small, peaceful and beautiful.
Today most people knows the restaurant Noma which recently reopened in a new location in Copenhagen. This famous foodie heaven has been part of the wave of restaurants claiming fame in the New Nordic Cuisine movement that attracts people from all over the world to experience healthy food made form locally sourced ingredients. We love good food and good company!
Nyhavn is a 17th-century waterfront, canal and entertainment district in Copenhagen. Probably the most photographed area in the city.
