After tempting you with photos from our trip to Copenhagen last week I thought I’d share some of our favourite tips on where to eat, what to do and where to sleep.
A few photos before getting to the details… just to tempt you further!
I hope I’ve convinced you to give Copenhagen a visit. It literally is such a brilliant city. So brilliant that we’re really keen to go back next summer when bambino is 1. Fingers crossed.
Best of Copenhagen (Eat, Do, Sleep)
Granola is a brilliantly cool cafe with hip industrial vibe in Vesterbro. Supposedly a favourite with Michelin stared chefs. And can totaly see why – breakfast was delicious.
Holmes Bakery just about had the best cinnamon rolls I ever tasted. I had a large roll everyday. All to myself. Because it was that good. Really good sandwiches too.
Anderson’s Bakery just opposite the Central railway station has the most epic gormet hot dogs. Perfect sausage, with crispy onions and lots of sauces. I’d go back to Copenhagen just for one of these (because I’m classy like that).
Madcluchen another great Vesterbro spot. Really good value for dinner. Lots of different rooms means you can either have a cosy romantic meal in the front room, or a more party atmosphere in the back hall with the open kitchen. I always trust a place that has an open kitchen.
The National Museum is free and has free lockers to stash your stuff. Great exhbit on the 3rd floor about daily life in Denmark from 1660 to 2013. Also some epically sized Viking rune stones.
Canal tour’s are kinda cheesey, but it was a great way of getting to see the city from a different angle. Good excise to cuddle up and rest for an hour or so.
Troleharverne Market is definitely not like any market I’ve ever been to. Smart, stylish, quiet. Lots of great local food and snack bars. I hear Gröd is the new place to go – great for porridge.
Walking around may seem like a weird thing to recommend, but we thought it was a great way to see the different parts of the city – from hip Vesterbro, to the Carlsberg district, and the city centre. There are some spectacular parks too – but those will have to wait till summertime.
We staid in an airbnb apartment in Veserbro. I’d highly recommend the area as a great place for cafes, bars and restaurants. Plus it was also quite near town (a 15 minute walk to Tivoli gardens).
