A beautiful, lively and shockingly environmentally friendly city. With more organic restaurants than regular and more lanes available to bikes than cars; I love this city.
København is the definition of relaxed living. It is small compared to its European counterparts but that doesn’t stop them from offering as many restaurants and coffee shops. (My favourite part of travelling!) I had only stayed a couple days and plan to return in a few months before my flight home.
Here are a few highlights from my time in København:
- Walking around the central city and making my way to Nyhavn for some typical touristic pictures
- Renting a bicycle is the best way to get around the city. I rented mine from Sögreni because it happened to be on my favourite coffee shop’s street!
- Freetown Christiania is a unique must see
- Vesterbro is full of restaurantes, bars and shopping
- Night Market / Meat Packing District is an old shipping ground full of top restaurants
- Grabbing street food at Papirøen
- Norrebro Cassistens Cemetary is surprisingly a great park to visit
Amazing Restaurants / Bars / Coffee Shops:
- Cocks & Cows is an amazing burger chain that describes where everything on their menu comes from (practically including the farmers name..)
- Mikkeller is the best brewery in town (but be prepared for their high prices)
- An amazing Boardgame bar with free games to play and decent beer prices is Huset which was convenitently across the street form our hostel
- Grød is a perfect stop in Norrebro with creamy risottos that are irresistible!
- Din Nye Ven is my FAVOURITE coffee shop in Denmark. They have the best filtered coffee with breakfast for only 40DKK
Here is a collection of my personal bicycle photography, I just couldn’t get enough.
Last note, I stayed at the CPH Down Town hostel and I highly recommend it! They have a great atmosphere, they’re clean and in a perfect location!
