HOTEL CPH LIVING
Why not stay on a boat with amazing views of the Copenhagen’s cityscape?
At the good side of the über-touristy Nyhavn, close to the theater and the new bridge
Locally sourced food, master of the Copenhagen Kitchen movement
King of the typical Danish open sandwiches, the smørrebrød with a deli and a restaurant near each other

Farm-to-table, they have their own garden where most of the ingredients are sourced from
Affordable organic fare in the hip Nørrebro area, mostly made in-house
A casual restaurant where Noma used to be. Great for brunch.

The local “Meatpacking District” with an industrial and hip atmosphere with several options from restaurants to bars, clubs and art galleries.
Right across from Relae but a bit more laid-back with a veggie focused menu and a superb tartare
Where food is beautiful
The place to go for great meat (and seafood) at the Meatpacking District of Kødbyen
My new favorite in town, with a Sustainable Restaurant award and one of the World’s 50 Best
A very varied Food Hall to please everyone (my favorites are Gorm’s Pizza and the übercool lepetit)
Denmark’s coolest brewery (you can find Mikkeller beer all around the world and in other CPH locations)
COFFEE & SWEETS
One of Copenhagen’s most delicious brunches and breakfasts (but not only – open all day long)
If I had to choose one street in CPH to set up shop, this would be it. Cafés, bars and indie stores galore

Richard Mortensens Vej 81A
Nice space to browse the various illustrations and come out with a nice gift
A wonderful bookshop to browse books and have a coffee
ARTS & CULTURE
New Contemporary Art Museum, a bit far out on the sticks but worth a visit nevertheless
Skovvej 100 in Ishøj
Incredible art center on the way to Helsingør, worth every minute of the train journey along the coast
Gl Strandvej 13 in Humlebæk
Imposing brick structure translating the Danish Lutheran spirit
På Bjerget 14B
Six wooden giants by local artist Thomas Dambo were hidden in the outskirts of the city for a great hunt in the woods. Nice day out with the kids (one of them is not far from Arken).
HOW TO BE DANISH
An enlightening book delving into the Danish Way of Life that will make your visit to the country even more interesting.
Denmark’s “enfant terrible” of the contemporary architecture is changing the perceptions of how the country is perceived and how Danes live. Watch him on Netflix series Abstract.
This is my favorite Danish TV series and a window on how the country works. Quite addictive.
Newer than Borgen, this series showcases a public school teacher with a kind of “renegade” mind. Another great window into how the Danish live their daily lives (though not all are quite like Rita).
Have a look at Copenhagen in 20 Pics as well 😉
