a city guide: copenhagen, denmark


As I've mentioned various times, I've been planning on starting a city series for a while now. I tend to go on a couple of city breaks a year, and obviously live in London so from now on you'll be able to find my top picks for every city I travel to, think of it as a mini city guide/things I enjoyed (read: mostly things I ate), as well as London themed posts such as favourite coffee shops etc.
I hope someone finds them useful, and seeing as it was my most recent, I thought I'd kick things off with Copenhagen, so without further ado:



1. Neighbourhood Pizza
Here you'll find delicious cocktails, lively atmosphere and some awesome pizza. The pizza is on a pastry-sort base and was different to any I've ever had before. That being said, mine was amazing and the spicy sausage was to die for. We both went for a bitter lemon/elderflower cocktail which was also great. A must visit if you're in CPH.

£? £8-12 per pizza and cocktails at £7.50 each



2. Acne Archive
Any Acne fan needs to visit their archive store in Nørrebro, with past season, samples and one off's hidden in this treasure trove, it's a must visit in my books and only available in Scandinavia. I managed to scoop a jumper for the equivalent of £30 (yuh, I nearly went into cardiac arrest too). Maybe all your Acne dreams aren't too far off after all.

£? Prices vary, knitwear tends to go to around £100, shoes to £180 etc




3. Karoline's Place
Our first Airbnb experience was a gooden', choosing Karoline's place. Her Scandi style was evident throughout the apartment and it was in the trendy neighbourhood of Nørrebro, which I like to compare to the East London of Copenhagen. It was really easy to get to from the airport, Karoline was lovely and the apartment was a joy. Although be aware that she has an authentic Danish bathroom which is the size of most peoples' wardrobes!

£? Depends on season, although roughly £50-60 per night


4. Mother Italian
Mother was another great food find, serving a totally different pizza to Neighbourhood. The atmosphere was busy and relaxed, with everyone sitting outside with a beer when we arrived. We both went for the margarita which was lovely, and a Danish beer. 

£? A meal and drink around £15



5. Grød
Meaning 'porridge' in Danish, Grød naturally only serves porridge (and risotto in the evening) but they know bloody good porridge, hand-making each batch as you order. I opted for dulche de leche, apple, blueberries and almonds which was amazing. The coffee is also great, and from what I hear we were very lucky to arrive when there wasn't a queue! 100% worth going to for a hearty breakfast, a great latte and the novelty of being in a place that only serves porridge. They also serve it made with milk alternatives for those lactose intolerant, perfect!

£? Huge bowl of porridge and a latte for around £8/9.



6. Superkilen
More for fellow bloggers, but Superkilen is a huge park/skate area/outdoor gym/place to hang out that's worth a visit for the photo ops. With a green, a red and a black part, it's got a great urban vibe that's worth checking out if you're local.

£? Free 

In conclusion, I absolutely loved Copenhagen! It's a crazy, arty city that literally oozes Scandi-cool vibes. Visit if you're interior obsessed, into fashion or culture... or just fancy a really good city break.

lots of love xxx
