Weekly hotels top five of five - Denmark
Wednesday 23 June 2010
Next week sees the start of the Roskilde Music festival in Denmark, one of Europe's biggest music festivals.
Denmark is a popular tourist destination, particularly with people from nearby Holland, Germany and Sweden, who visit for the sandy beaches and busy nightlife in Copenhagen.
The country prides itself on its cozy atmosphere and welcoming people and has recently built a name for itself in eco-tourism as a result of hosting the COP15 summit in Copenhagen and considerable investment in green infrastructure.
Despite this, the country saw a decline in inbound tourism during 2008 and 2009, prompting tourism officials to warn that Denmark suffered from an image problem.
Copenhagen offers world class hotels as the capital and largest city in Denmark, with the Hilton Copenhagen Airport taking top spot above the Nimb hotel.
