Copenhagen City Guide

19 April 2016


As you guys know, a couple of weeks ago I went to Copenhagen for a city break to celebrate my 6th anniversary with my boyfriend. I've always wanted to explore Scandinavia and Copenhagen was always somewhere that I wanted to visit as it is the land of interior design. The city itself is so clean and modern, every road was so photogenic - literally bloggers paradise! We were lucky to be quite central so we pretty much walked everywhere but getting bike around is probably your best option. I've listed some of the places we went to below and of course I'm starting with food..

Eat

The Italian
Vester Voldgade 25
1552 København V

I have to be honest with you guys and say that the service wasn't great at this place but wanted to mention it as the pizza was so delicious and authentic. It's part of the Cofoco group which stands for Copenhagen Food Consulting, the aim was to create restaurants where you can go for a 5 course meal for half the price. I'd definitely recommend checking out some of the others. 


Cocks & Cows
Rosenvængets Allé 6, 2100 København Ø, Denmark

We had to try this place out as it was located within our hotel and they had vegan burgers! Since I've converted to vegetarian I've found that most restaurants (especially in London) are quite limited. I went for the fried courgette burger and it was honestly amazing. I need the recipe so I can try and recreate it myself! Great service and great value for money. They also have a rooftop bar which gets pretty busy in the evenings! 



Cafe Norden 
Østergade 61, 1100 København K, Denmark

We didn't actually get a chance to eat here but I wanted to mention it as it's a great spot for open sandwiches right in the centre of Strøget, the shopping high street. The interior is amazing and the chairs are draped in sheepskin. Perfect spot for lunch.



Shop

Torvehallerne
Frederiksborggade 21, 1360 København K, Denmark

We found this indoor market with everything from coffee to pastries to cacti stalls! That's like 3 of my favourites things in life. They have a Coffee Collective stall here, which is one of the nicest coffees I've had, great for you caffeine heads! 





Company's Original 

This concept store is located on Strøget, the long high street including stores like Weekday, & Other Stories and Monki. I loved this store in particular as it had some of the brands that I love and you can only really find on ASOS here in the UK. They had everything from Acne Studios to Filippa K and Gestuz.


Do

Jægersborggade

This is one of the cutest roads we came across in Copenhagen, located in a dodgy/hip area (think East London) it's a long road filled with cute second hand stores, a doughnut store, restaurants and of course another Coffee Collective. There was also a store dedicated to cacti on this road called Kactus.




Dome of Visions
1016, Søren Kierkegaards Pl., København K, Denmark

A cool place to stop by for a hot chocolate and enjoy the view. If you love plants and interesting architecture definitely pay this place a visit. I'm sure it looks even nicer in Summer!



HAY House
Dänemark, Østergade 61, 1100 København K, Denmark

One of my favourite contemporary interior brands, everything was so minimal and full of greenery. It was almost like visiting a museum. It's located in a beautiful building just above Cafe Norden. It's the place to be if you love Danish modern design. 




Nimb Hotel 

Bernstorffsgade 5, 1577 København, Denmark

Located just opposite Central station, a beautiful hotel with elegant bars and restaurants and on the other side a theme park. Yes a theme park within a hotel. We were lucky enough to arrive on the opening day. It still amazes me that they built a theme park in the middle of Central Copenhagen. The lights outside Nimb Hotel made it look like a temple, it was so magical!


Hope this was helpful for any of you visiting Copenhagen!
