This summer I was lucky enough to visit Copenhagen for the first time. It is a city that I have for a long time wanted to visit, however the occasion has never really presented itself. When Queen Bey decided to make a stop in the Danish capital for her Formation World Tour, I couldn’t help myself – and I boarded that plane and was pleasantly surprised after a weekend in one of the worlds happiest cities.
There are many lovely hotels in Copenhagen, however my friend and I decided to rent an Airbnb. We were hoping it would give us a proper Copenhagen experience and the apartment exceed all our expectations. There are many gems to be found in the Danish capital, like the one we stayed in.
Eat & Drink
The restaurant offering in Copenhagen is strong, with a wide variety of places to satisfy all your urges. My two favourites are located close to the harbour and all the fabulous shopping.
Restaurant Geist was recommended to me by a friend from Copenhagen – and I am ever so happy she recommended it. The concept is small, sharing plates, made from the most delicate, fresh ingredients you can imagine. This restaurant will take your palate to another level.
Address: Kongens Nytorv 8, 1050 København K, Denmark
Not to be confused with the car company – Fiat is a lovely Italian restaurant, a couple of meters from Restaurant Geist. They have the most idyllic court yard, where you can enjoy the most delicious Italian food and wine.
The best area in Copenhagen for shopping is definitely Strøget. Never before have I seen such a long shopping street, with such a multitude of retailers. One can pass by H&M and Zara and on the other end of the street you’ll find luxury designers such as Louis Vuitton. Copenhagen has some serious cool designers as well, that you can find here. The perfect place to indulge in all your shopping desires.
Ny Carlsberg Glyptoteket
The Ny Carlsberg Glyptoteket is an art museum, founded by the owner of the Carlsberg beer breweries, Carl Jacobsen, in 1882. Using the revenue from his beer sales, Carl created the largest private art collection in Scandinavia.
The art museum has a wide array of paintings – from artists such as Monet, to antiques from the Roman Empire.
