There's an old adage often attributed to tourists traps that goes something like "it's a nice place to visit, but you wouldn't want to live there." Well, Copenhagen is a fantastic tourist destination filled to the brim with interesting sights to see, and now for two years running it's been rated the number one place to live worldwide! So much for the old saying, then.

Copenhagen has been ranked the No.1 city in the world to live in for the second time on Monocle magazine’s “Most Livable Cities Index". Safety, tolerance, green initiatives and international connectivity were just some of the criteria used to decide the winning city.

Copenhagen's creative environment, its relaxed lifestyle, cycle culture, democratic design and the active use of city spaces are among the key reasons why Copenhagen is, once again, the world's best city according to British lifestyle magazine, Monocle.

Other contributing factors include the good business conditions, the ease of access and the fact that you can travel quickly and safely within the city, as well as Copenhageners' use of their urban spaces - not just in terms of their bike use, but the way they make the most of every ray of sunshine with their pavement cafes and parks. It is easy to access green and recreational areas in Copenhagen.
