What to do in Copenhagen

In Denmark's waterside capital, green is the new black. The city aims to become carbon neutral by 2025 with a plan to produce from renewable sources more energy than it consumes. This mission is evident when you board a train at Kastrup Airport that whisks you downtown in less than 15 minutes. The city's 11-starred Michelin dining scene includes Noma, which has been named the world's best restaurant by Restaurant magazine and relies on local, seasonal ingredients. As for design, stunning buildings dot and dash this city of islands, including the Jean Nouvel-designed DR Concert Hall, an energy-efficient cube that lights up like a blue lantern at night. After being immersed in the capital of Danish design—think Bang & Olufsen speakers, Bodum coffee mugs, and egg-shaped chairs by Arne Jacobsen—you'll be forgiven for feeling green with envy.
