Top Things to Do in Copenhagen

Scandi, Hygge and Greys are dominanting Newsfeeds all over the world, and there's little wonder why once you've visited Denmark's capital.

Full of the best fashion and home ware brands, Food, Bars, and boutique shops, it is perhaps one of my favourite cities in the world. Here's a short list of the top things to do in the Danish Capital!

 

1. Tivoli Gardens

A whimsical, fairy-tale amusement park near the city centre. So Beautiful, that Walt Disney took inspiration from Tivoli for his Walt Disney Resort. Home to one of the oldest Rollercoasters in the world, spend the day thrill seeking, eating at one of the many restaurants and enjoy the enchantment of Tivoli.

Top Tip: Tivoli is closed from 1st January - 6th April so try to avoid visiting during this period

 

2. Vesterbro

Hands down the coolest area of the city, it's the old Meatpacking District of Copenhagen and it's thriving. From stylish Cocktail bars, cool Microbrewery hangouts, the tastiest food around and quite possibly the quaintest boutique shops. Get your Free Downloadable Food and Drink Map here.

 

3. Cycle the City

Nothing beats hiring a bike and pedalling your way through a city and it's various neighbourhoods. Copenhagen's bike lanes are so efficient and easy to navigate that it is the best way to see this beautiful place.

Top Tip:  Download the Bycyklen App or visit their website. You can hire Bikes from different bike stations all over the city. The bikes have GPS so  you can either map out your own Route before you go or input addresses as you go. £3.50 per hour or £35 for 10 hours.  

4. Nyhavn

Of course Nyhavn is on our list. It is the most photographed and touristy area of the city, but it is super colourful and worth a stop.  Spend an afternoon, people watching and sipping a cold beer or glass of wine.

 

5. Assistens Cemetery and Norrebro

Sounds morbid to visit a cemetery but this place is bewitching and charming so much so Hans Christian Anderson's is buried here. It's a lovely stroll up to Norrebro, in fact Jaegersborggade street one of the hippest spots in the entire city is only a street over from the Cemetary. You will find Coffee Collective, Istrid, Michelin-star Relae and Tu a Tu.

 

6. Stroget

Hard to miss, this is the pedestrianised shopping street in the heart of the city centre that stretches for over a km. A haven for shoppers with Danish brands such as Hay Homeware, Wood Wood, Norse Projects, Samsoe & Samsoe and my personal favourite Moss Copenhagen. Be sure to visit Gothersgade and Pilestraede streets.

Top Tip: Most Shops are closed on Sunday and close early on Saturdays
