Denmark is possibly the best country in the World for kids. And Danish kids are – like the Danes – the happiest in the World. They enjoy tremendous freedom of movement and bicycles play a large part in making that possible.
From around 12 years old, most children are allowed to bike around town to school, with friends or wherever they need to go.
And even at night you can see young girls biking alone through Copenhagen’s streets.
It makes growing up in Denmark very special. Only a handful of other countries can offer the same freedom and independence.
