FACTS: The Danish Michelin stars have been shining since 1983

Get an insight into how Denmark has fared over the years:

* The French dining guide Michelin has been around since August 1900.

* In the 1920s, the Michelin stars were added, but the first Danish contribution did not come until the 1980s.

* The first Danish michelin stars were given in 1983 to King Hans Kælder and La Cocotte in Copenhagen.

* King Hans Kælder is the only one of the two restaurants still in the guide and on Monday night they got their second star.

* At first it went slowly. But in the 1990s, things picked up speed, and Kommandanten became the first two-star restaurant in Denmark.

* With increasing attention to Nordic gastronomy, Michelin chose in 2015 to publish a special edition of the guide focusing on Nordic cities.

* Here Aarhus appeared for the first time with three star restaurants.

* The following year, there were even more stars across the country. It was to Henne, Præstø and Bornholm. At the same time, Geranium in Copenhagen became the first three-star michelin restaurant in Denmark.

* For the award ceremony on Monday night, Denmark got another restaurant with three stars. Noma is now part of the coveted three-star club, and according to the Michelin Guide is thus worth traveling for.
