Denmark currently holds the top spot on the UN’s World Happiness Report, so maybe it’s unsurprising that it’s also ranked as the second-safest country in the world. Violent crimes are quite rare, and even pick-pocketing isn’t a terribly common occurrence (though it’s more likely to happen in tourist areas). One of the main safety notes in Denmark is to abide by the no-photography rules in the autonomous area of Christiania in Copenhagen.
Reasons why you should visit Denmark
Head to Denmark to explore fairy-tale castles, snap a million photos of multi-colored houses, ride through pretty and bike-friendly Copenhagen with all the locals, and suddenly become an expert on furniture design. Depending on when you visit, you’ll either embrace the long summer nights or – perhaps – see the Northern Lights. In any event, you’re bound to find plenty of reasons why Danes are so happy.
