A city so vibrant and present. Spending four months living in Copenhagen has showed me more of the Scandinavian way of living. If you’re in need of some inspiration, where to go or what to explore – here is what stood out to me during my stay.
A tiny café in the heart of Nørrebro, CPH. Delicious lattes, breakfast and an inspiring place to either read or work, talk or relax.
Address; Sneppevej 2, 2400 København
Where to get your friday night takeaway or sit down for a drink. A great place for buying presents of any kind. Between their two glass buildings you will find a marked selling flowers, fruit and vegetables. Why not buy yourself a beautiful bouquet to bring home?
Tante T is where you’ll find a great selection of teas from all around the world. I got to test out several sorts in their advent calendar and found myself especially liking Prickly Pear ØKO and also Snehvide ØKO. Friendly staff and the place to get yourself a delightful treat.
Address; Frederiksborggade 21, 1360 København
This is the place where I came to relax and breath. Any day will get brighter by strolling through the park. Anytime during the year a walk through the botanical garden calms the mind. At least it did with mine.
To read more about the Botanical Garden and to see more pictures – here is what I wrote back in september.
Address; Øster Farimagsgade 2B, 1353 København K
When the leaves change colour you can feel the seasons changing. At Assistentens Kirkegård / the assistents cemetery the colours all pop and a stroll through here can make you reflect and think.
A small place dedicated to bring small bits from around the world to the people of Copenhagen.
What I spotted during my visit at Verdens Hjørnet back in October: At the corner of the world
Address; Lygten 1, 2400 København
During my sisters weekend visit we stopped by Fars Dreng. A place we for sure would go back to next time we visit the city. A great variety of different breakfasts, lunches and brunches.
Address; Ny Adelgade 7, 1104 København K
Great coffee! A spot in the midst of shopping streets and tourists but an elegance place indeed.
Address; Østergade 61, 1100 København
A walk along the lakes is good for the soul. A place where the swans are to seen all year round. If you fancy exploring Søerne in a boat they rent out rowing boats all summer. Whenever you want to visit the lakes, it is and will always be there for you to see.
Address; Peblinge Dossering 6, 2200 København N
This is where I went to explore the world of cinematography. Located in the heart of the city next to cafés and small boutiques.
Grand is one of Copenhagen’s few independently-run cinemas. It has been there since 1913 and was known in the old days as the Royal Danish Theatre. The artistic film has always been a major part of the cinema’s program. As well as a part of my interest.
Address; Mikkel Bryggers Gade 8, 1460 København
Outdoor cinema during the summer months. A lovely park to stroll through during the beautiful autumn or spring months with a hot beverage in your hands. To have parks like this one in a city like Copenhagen, in any city actually, is important. At least in my opinion.
Address; Øster Voldgade 4A, 1350 København
The delighted smell of Atelier Rebul
On my return visit to Copenhagen at the beginning of January my mother and I went for a facial treatment at Atelier Rebul. Just the break we needed on our busy weekend in the city. Friendly staff and great products. A place to get wonderful products that are hard to find anywhere else.
Address; Vesterbrogade 75, 1620 København
There is only one unfortunate experience I have in the city of Copenhagen and that is where I decided to live / at Provstehuset. A place renting out apartments for students. I found it really difficult to communicate with the office manager and even though the building was brand and nice to look at – the few things that didn’t work and the help I did not receive made it difficult to put the place as a highlight. Also unfortunately I know as a fact that I am not the only one having this experience living there. I am not one to talk a lot about negative things that I’ve experienced but I want to be honest and I don’t want people to go through the lack of safety like I did.
If you are considering traveling to Copenhagen – I would give you a pat on the back and say go. The city has so much to offer whether you are going during spring, summer, autumn or winter. Doesn’t really matter, there are many beautiful sides of the city.
Research the place your are staying in and trust your gut. It will be great! Enjoy
