I experience an increasing number of tourist in inner Copenhagen where I live. Disturbingly so.
Shops I like and use disappears in favour of shops that cater to more profitable tourist services.
To make matters worse, politicians have recently begun moving large parts of the state administration out in the provinces in order to bring life into areas of Denmark that suffers from depopulation. While nice in theory, the effect is unfortunate for the city dynamics as it loses the normal working people with normal needs that is satisfied by normal shops and services. It vacates attractively located buildings that becomes targets for... Hotels!
Instead of moving the people with "legitimate" errands, I suggest we move tourist attractions to the depopulated areas that feels they would benefit from uncommitted visitors to bring life to their community.
The Little Mermaid is an insignificant sculpture with little or no meaning to the locals, yet requires quite a bit of infrastructure to accommodate the alarming number of tourists that wants to see it during the season. A quick look at Apple maps shows 14 full size busses on a random moment in time:
Copenhageners survived without much fuss when the statue was sent to Shanghai in 2010, and I doubt many will miss it if it moves to a provincial depopulated Danish harbour city in need of a tourist injection.
