If you are a lover of history, architecture or even shopping then you will love Copenhagen. Originally a viking fishing village, it only  became the capital of Denmark in the 15th Century. Rich with amazing buildings that are hundreds of years old and still in pristine condition. A photographers paradise, as there are endless possibilities, especially when the weather is playing ball. Exploring the city couldn’t be easier as the metro is easy to navigate with a choice of 12 hour/24 hour and 3 day tickets available. Bear in mind this is a cyclists heaven too so you can rent a bike and blend in with the locals, not to mention you can easily walk around to most of the attractions too. 

QUICK GUIDE TO COPENHAGEN

SLEEP

Stay at Hotel Angeleterre which sits right in the heart of Copenhagen. For something more budget friendly you have the option of renting an airbnb apartment like we did with more options for cheaper hotel and hostels dotted around the city. 

EAT

Culinary experiences don’t get an cooler than Marchal at Angeleterre with a Nordic-French twist. Also check out Nyhavn which is lined with bars and restaurants to appeal to any appetite. If you want something different with a little  quirky touch then check out Mormors cafe a few meters from the Marble Church.

SEE

Head to Nyhavn and take a boat tour on the canals and learn about the city’s history. Then check surrounding areas. Make stops at The Marble Church, Ameliaborg Palace, Black Diamond(post coming soon), Christianshavn,  climb the stairs up Our Saviour’s Church and take in the views of Copenhagen from this baroque church in the Christianhavn area. Make sure to pay  a visit to the most famous of attractions in the city; of course the  little mermaid.

Also note that a lot of places are free too. Check out Trip Advisor for free street tours in the city. Botanical gardens, The Marble Church, Black Diamond and many others all have FREE entry too which work towards minimising your expenses.

SHOP

Head over to Stroget. This is Europe’s longest pedestrian street with a mammoth of shops, from budget to luxury designer shops. You will find the likes of Prada, LV, Gucci all mixed in with H&M, Vero, Zara, Other Stories and many Danish brands. Of course mixed in with cafes for much needed breaks in between swiping  plastic. 

WEEKEND TRIP: WHAT TO PACK

A versatile top that can easily go from causal day to evening glam with a  touch of accessories. A pair of dark jeans which can be paired with converse or heels with little effort. Plus the weather is quiet similar to London so expect a few wet patches on your visit hence why the pictures below are half filled with sunshine one minute and clouds the next so a scarf or even an umbrella wouldn’t be amiss in your packing.
