  4. I’ve live there for a small while and visit often. Denmark is a wonderful country. Don’t go there if you have problems with temperature extremes though. Inside those walkways in Copenhagen, during winter, the wind chill factor can drop the temperature 15 degrees Celsius easily. Much to do there and a very enjoyable, though at times, slower paced life. Tourists in Copenhagen make life crowded though.
