WELCOME TO COPENHAGEN
It's fair to say that Copenhagen is my home - I was born here, I grew up here, I did a lot of stuff for the first time in Copenhagen and I will probably always return to it.
Copenhagen, or København as it is called in danish, is a constantly growing city, with something for every taste.
Some say that danes are the happiest people in the world, and the city of Copenhagen might play a part in that - come and find out yourself. Here are some of my favourite spots in the urban beauty of Scandinavia.
I love coming here for several reasons. First of, there are a lot of well-staged entertaining plays, but the building itself is an architectural piece of art. The big terrace over the waterside is a perfect hangout spot – I come here a lot in the early mornings after a night out, and have a swim, while the sun comes up – try it! I had the honour of playing on this stages myself for the first time last November
This is kind of a cliché, but as in New York, Copenhagen also has a meatpacking district, which has been trough a minor renaissance. Instead of being only for meat-buisness, the district is now a pulsating cultural spot in the city with markets, gourmet restaurants and nightclubs.
Its not that much of a secret spot any more, but definitely worth a visit – especially for the markets every weekend from 10-18. Or get your party on at Bakken, Mesteren og Lærlingen or Jolene's!
Located on downtown Vesterbro. This might be the cosiest little street in Copenhagen. Its also the street of my first agency; 2pm – a lovely place with lovely people! If you are in for a coffee drop by Granola, or go to Falernum for a glass of wine in the afternoon sun.
Mad og Kaffe
Mad og Kaffe (Food and Coffe) was awarded the best cafe in Copenhagen in 2015, and is definitely worth a visit.
Its located on the corner of Sønder Boulevard and Oehlenschlägergade, which makes a perfect spot for sipping one of their delicious juices, lemonades or elegantly made coffees in the sun. You get to pick every element of your brunch, or have a taste of their delicious take on the traditional danish 'smørrebrød'
The vibe is cosy, or 'hyggelig', as we say in danish, even though the place can be really crowded in weekends, because of its rising popularity. Go there!
Just 20 minutes from the citycenter, you will find the most beautiful forest, originally made in the 17th century by danish kings for the purpose of hunting. Nowadays you can go there (without risk of being hunted by royals) and get your hike on.
Plus! - Every summer The Royal Theatre sets the stage for spectacular dramas in Dyrehaven's beautiful surroundings. This year it is the tale of King Arthur with Nicolas Bro in the lead.
I hope these tips got you inspired – see you soon in København!
