And with good reason: Denmark’s capital really is filled with design-savvy people with chic homes who are only a quick pedal from some of the world’s finest restaurants. But there’s more than this to enchant the visitor. A recent building boom has filled the skyline with innovative and visually bamboozling residential and civic structures, the hotel industry is heating up and, thanks to the infamously sky-high taxes, the well-funded cultural scene is kicking.
“The Monocle Travel Guide to Copenhagen will lead you through the maze of top-notch places to dine and drink, the magazine-spread-ready homeware and fashion retailers and the most engaging museums and galleries. We’ll point out the architecture and infrastructure gems that best illustrate how a little forward-planning has resulted in one of the world’s most liveable cities. For good measure we’ll also reveal our favourite neighbourhoods and grooming spots. So saddle up and join us for a wheel through Copenhagen’s many and varied delights.”
“In 2013 we launched our first book in collaboration with Berlin publisher Gestalten. The Monocle Guide to Better Living proved an instant hit and has since been joined by The Monocle Guide to Good Business, The Monocle Guide to Cosy Homes, How to Make a Nation: A Monocle Guide, The Monocle Guide to Drinking & Dining, The Monocle Guide to Hotels, Inns and Hideaways, The Monocle Guide to Building Better Cities and The Monocle Guide to Shops, Kiosks and Markets. We also have a series of travel guides that cover more than 35 cities, including London, New York, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Sydney and Mexico City. In 2020, Monocle has released its first self-published titles, The Monocle Book of Japan, a 306-page celebration of all things Japanese, and The Monocle Guide to Gentle Living, both distributed by Thames & Hudson. Keep your eyes peeled for more book releases in spring 2021.”
