Tour de France to start from Copenhagen

LanguedocLiving, Aug 30

Macron has been in Denmark this week, and after a bicycle tour of Copenhagen with Danish Prime Minister Lars Rasmussen, Macron announced that a future Tour de France will start from Copenhagen.

This is France's first official visit to Denmark after over three decades. A gala lobster dinner was held for the occasion, transmitted live on Danish TV.

Denmark's Queen Margrethe II, who is married to a French prince, spoke in French to hail Franco-Danish relations.

Macron's main reason for his Denmark and Finland trip is to rally support for his vision of Europe, although this may not be an easy task, because both Denmark and Finland have voted against a key economic reform that Macron wants for Europe.
