Copenhagen Cool with AD

Long a bastion of understated cool, the Danish capital is abuzz with ground-breaking restaurants, trend-setting design shops and a burgeoning arts scene. The land that invented hygge—that zeitgeist word that means cozy comfort—is hotter than ever these days, and you can experience a sampling of the can’t-miss highlights—as well as the new, under-the-radar haunts—on this design-focused journey with Indagare and Architectural Digest, featuring special-access tours led by curators, designers, editors and foodies.

What to Expect
