Weekend trip to Copenhagen
Hi guys, It’s been a while since I last wrote an article.
To be honest I’m not that good and comfortable at writing, but anyways…
As you probably saw on my Insta, I flew to Copenhagen beginning February for a long Weekend.
We flew directly from Bordeaux to Copenhagen with Ryanair. We left Saturday late afternoon and came back Tuesday night. So for me, plenty of time to visit Copenhagen City.
Practical info :
The metro to go to the city is located right in the airport, so you just need to buy a ticket and off you go. Metro tickets are pretty expensive in Copenhagen, we paid around 10€ for two to get to our appartement (20min metro ride).
Although traveling around Copenhagen is expensive I think it’s best to purchase a City Pass that gives you unlimited access to the metro and buses for 24h, 48h, 72h or more… We took the 48h City Pass which cost us 150 DKK (20€).
Our appartement was located in Frederiksberg. Which is pretty far walking-distance from the city center. But very quick by metro or bicycle.
Here’s the link to the appartement we stayed in, very cute and cozy and our host was very friendly : Our Airbnb in Copenhagen
What to do in Copenhagen?
In my opinion, Copenhagen is very similar to Amsterdam but is a wayyy bigger city. There are so many cute neighbourhoods all around Copenhagen city.
- Visit Norrebro, you’ll find a cute street full of trendy coffee shops and brunch spots.
- Walk by Superkilen park in Norrebro, to admire the design art that was created around this park.
- Stop to Torvehallen, a cute outside market where you can find beautiful dried flowers and fruits/veggies. There is also a food-court around it where you can have coffee and pastry stop.
- Explore Christiania, the famous freetown of Copenhagen, one of Denmark’s most popular tourist attractions. This part of the town is quite similar to Amsterdam smoking situation. You’ll find numerous sellers in the freetown.
- Walk along the Nyhavn port, most famous place in Copenhagen with its colorful houses.
- Shop around in Kobenhavn, Stroget is the main shopping street where you’ll find all the shops, from H&M to Acne Studio to Gucci…
- Visit the Designmuseum Danmark, a fun experience if you experience rain in Copenhagen and want to hide indoors. The museum is free on Tuesdays and free for under 26.
Where to eat in Copenhagen? Now we’re getting to the good part!
- Mother – Pizza place with very good food and cool ambience but pretty expensive. Around 130 DKK to 155 DKK (17,5€ to 21€) for a pizza.
- Moller Kaffe & Kokken – Hype place to brunch. Very crowded place so book your table on their site to avoid queing for an hour to eat. Everything was super yummy. Highly recommend!!
- The Union Kitchen – Cute restaurant in Indre By, just next to Nyhavn port. Don’t miss you on their Signature Cappuccino, it’s a MUST!
- Sliders – If you fancy burgers! No more waisting time deciding for hours which one to get, you can choose 3 different ones in their menu, their mini size burgers. They also offer vinegar fries and 24k gold fries.
- Hyggestund – Another cute place to brunch. Here you’ll find more of the classics. I went for the single plate rather than the brunch menu. I got the chicken and Waffle, it was delicious….
- 1656 : Fancy Cocktail bar, prices are a bit expensive, around 130 DKK (17,5€) for a cocktail.
- Original Coffee : They have multiple location but definitely go to the one on Illum Rooftop, they have great coffee and serve London Fogs.
Some other addresses I saw but didn’t have time to go :
Copenhagen was a city we really enjoyed, we loved the chill vibe over ther. Definitely recommend it and we would definitely go back another time during summer.
