Denmark sets new Michelin record, including Aarhus to the list
Denmark sets a new Michelin record in 2015. Until now, Copenhagen has been the only Danish city to receive the attention of the Michelin guide but this year sees the launch of a new 'Guide Michelin Nordic Cities' allowing for Denmark's second largest city, Aarhus, to be included with three one star restaurants. And once again, Copenhagen sets a new record with 18 Michelin stars divided among 15 restaurants in and around the capital - compared to 17 stars to 15 restaurants in 2014. As well as the prestigious stars, Copenhagen has been awarded 10 Bib Gourmands, given to good restaurants with affordable prices. As well as beating its own record from 2014, Copenhagen is once again well ahead of the other Scandinavian capitals this year, underlining its position as the Nordic region’s gastronomic capital.
ABBA The Museum - The Legend lives on ....
The platform-booted and sparkly Swedish band that took the pop world by storm between 1972 and 1983 and gave us the hits 'Dancing Queen', and 'Knowing me, Knowing you' among many others will now be immortalized in a state-of-the-art museum where visitors can view the band's stage clothes, artifacts, concert footage, interviews, and more in a contemporary, interactive setting. Visitors can sing and dance with holograms of ABBA, don a digital costume projected on to them in a special booth and record a song. Photos and videos of the experience can be shared on Facebook and other social media. The museum opens May 7, 2013. ABBA Museum
