Weekend in Copenhagen

Hotel Danmark | Karoliina Kazi

We visited Copenhagen this weekend for the first time and got very lucky with gentle sunshine and blue autumn skies all day.

We stayed at the Hotel Danmark that is located between the City Hall Square and Denmark’s National Museum with a short walk to Tivoli and even shorter to the pedestrian street Strøget. The rooms were modest, but very clean and the location played the most important role for us on this trip. Hotel Denmark also welcomed us with some snacks and a lovely bottle of wine in our room. The hotel breakfast was amazing!

The beautiful Danish capital features progressive modern architecture, stunning palaces, candlelit restaurants, great people and of course, cinnamon rolls on every corner. We explored the quaint narrow cobble-stoned streets, canals and appreciated the old, traditional homes.

COPENHAGEN SHOPPING

You are going to be spoiled with the witheringly cool Danish design, antiques and large department stores. Quality is high and whether you are into the classic or the more experimental, you are bound to find something that will make your Copenhagen visit one to remember. I got my first pair of Acne boots from Copenhagen (they are from a Swedish brand though) and I wish I had room in my suitcase for these beautiful crystal glasses.

For great lunch sandwiches, humorous fairytale interiors with a hint of baroque and excellent trendy design head to Royal Smushi Cafe. They serve the most amazing traditional Danish sandwiches with a twist and delicious flødeboller, chocolate-coated marshmallow treats.

You can walk everywhere in Copenhagen and I always think it is the best way to see the city. There are also plenty of places to rent bicycles.

Nyhavn and it’s historic colourful buildings and ships. People sit out in the evenings, listening to music and sipping on local beer.

We were walking along the waterfront towards the Little Mermaid statue and noticed two dogs running with their owner. The man stopped by us and one of the dogs ran into the water for a swim. We were chatting to him about his lovely dogs – after he left we noticed he had two bodyguards running with him – for our big surprise, one of the locals told us he was Lars Løkke Rasmussen, the Prime Minister of Denmark. So funny, you never know who you’re going to bump into!

Copenhagen is a beautiful city, I wish I could have seen more of it! It’s going firmly on my list of places to visit properly. Hope to see you soon Copenhagen!

      I think a weekend in Copenhagen is a lovely idea with the baby, the city is very family friendly and mostly flat so its easy to push the buggy around 🙂

    Copenhagen is and will be one of the most lovable city to my heart because it has so many things I absolutely am in love with.. first of all the bicycle renting system, the antique and of course the cinnamon rolls.
