Copenhagen doesn’t have the best reputation

Copenhagen ranks fourth in annual ‘Best Reputation’ study

Copenhagen has a bit of a reputation for making the top of ‘Best of’ and ‘Greatest Cities’ list, but when it comes to cities with the best reputation – based on the degree to which people trust, admire, respect, and have an affinity for the city – our fair city has nothing on Vancouver. An annual study produced by the Reputation Institute has ranked Copenhagen fourth, while the Canadian city took the top spot.

Copenhagen has the best reputation of all Scandinavian cities, with Oslo ranking fifth and Stockholm ninth.

Canada was also found to be the country with the best reputation in the world. Denmark came in at eighth, trailing both Sweden and Norway, which came in at third and fifth, respectively.

The data was compiled by polling more than 18,000 people from the G8 countries: Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, Russia, the UK and the US, as well as other countries within the EU.
