Sexy gay Copenhagen meets Sweden’s country charm

World Outgames provide perfect reason to visit this summer

The Nimb Hotel lights up the Tivoli Gardens amusement park in central Copenhagen. The Tivoli contains rides, gardens, bars, restaurants and numerous performance venues. The worldwide Out Choir Festival, part of this summer’s World Outgames, will take place in the Tivoli’s Glass Concert Hall. The hall was destroyed by Nazi sympathizers during World War II and Credit: resurrected by renowned Danish modern architect Poul Henningsen in 1946.

The Danish capital is renowned for its gregarious residents, wild gay scene and impeccable design sense. The city’s reputation has grown to include its food, hotels, architecture, galleries and museums. Just across a sleek new bridge, southern Sweden features a fun-loving gay community, stylish architecture, beautiful countryside, beaches and — best of all — a gay champagne bar in the middle of the woods.
