Discover Copenhagen - number one among the world’s great cities
Copenhagen tops the Lonely Planet travel guide’s list of cities worth visiting in 2019. A high culinary standard and interesting architecture are listed among the reasons. A new Troldtekt A/S theme focuses on these two elements in the Danish capital, containing interviews and reports.
Which city should travellers visit in 2019? According to Lonely Planet – the world’s leading travel guide – Copenhagen should be top of your list. The title of top city in ‘Best in Travel 2019’ is yet another triumph for the Danish capital, which in recent years has been promoted repeatedly for its architecture, gastronomy and sustainability.
“Those of us who work with branding Copenhagen are pleased that Lonely Planet highlights gastronomy, architecture and design, and sustainability. This is also what we think Copenhagen should be renowned for,” says Anja Hartung Sfyrla, Manager of Business Development in the Visit Denmark tourism organisation.
Copenhagen has set an ambitious climate goal of being carbon-neutral by 2025. This is being reflected in the new architecture shooting up in the capital. Rita Justesen, Director of Planning and Architecture at CPH City & Port Development, says:
“All urban districts and buildings which CPH City & Port Development is responsible for are DGNB-certified, so we can measure the effect of the many initiatives. In my view, sustainability should be the standard for all urban development and all buildings. In a few years’ time, I believe that we will have stopped talking about sustainability, simply because sustainability will by then be incorporated into all systems and buildings and part and parcel of all projects.”
Guide to gastronomy and superior acoustics
The two interviews with Anja Hartung Sfyrla and Rita Justesen are part of a new online theme at www.troldtekt.com. The focus of the theme is the Danish capital. In addition to interviews with experts, it contains a guide to excellent restaurants in Copenhagen where gastronomy, aesthetics and good acoustics go hand in hand.
In all these restaurants Troldtekt acoustic solutions are part of the design. The natural cement-bonded wood wool acoustic panels guarantee low sound levels as a pleasant backdrop to meals.
The new online theme also offers a tour of several other prestige buildings in Copenhagen featuring Troldtekt panels as part of the architecture. These include the brand new library/cultural centre in Tingbjerg and the Experimentarium science centre, listed by TIME Magazine as one of the ‘World’s Greatest Places 2018’.
