Our contributor rounds-up the 5 essential bites in Copenhagen

This bites around Copenhagen offer a taste of the culinary style of the city.

Copenhagen: city of bikes, city of fairy tales and newly crowned city of food culture. Denmark’s capital has shifted its culinary image from a country where cured meats and boiled potatoes reigned, to a country that prides itself on fresh, locally sourced ingredients with vegetables at the center of the plate. Although Copenhagen has a staggering (and maybe unexpected) amount of Michelin-starred restaurants, eating in the Danish capital needn’t be out of reach. Even if you can’t snag that Noma reservation, the influence new Nordic can be tasted across Copenhagen’s extensive restaurant scene.

From elaborately decorated smørrebrød — an open-faced sandwich on Danish rye bread topped with everything under the sun — at the Torvehallerne Market to delicious Nordic-style coffee, Copenhagen has something that every traveler can enjoy.

Dining out isn’t just a tourist activity either; the Danes love to have a special meal at a restaurant (even despite sometimes high prices). When faced with the endless possibilities, it can be overwhelming to choose where to have your precious few meals in Copenhagen. Don’t worry ­– we’ve done some of the legwork for you.

Here are our five favorite bites in Copenhagen, don’t blame us if you leave hooked on Danish food!

Gaby’s Guide to Copenhagen

A few weeks back I had 72 hours to cover as much of Copenhagen as humanly possible. My sister and I were on a mission and we planned on leaving no rock unturned. 72 hours, 35 miles of walking and 4 ice cream cones later we were on a plane back to the states. Get ready for my guide to Copenhagen!! Coming at you in 3, 2, 1…

Copenhagen was EVERYTHING and I can’t wait to go back. I’ve done a fair amount of travel around Europe in my day and Copenhagen is officially at the very tip-top of favorite places. The city is magical, the people are beyond lovely and the food is basically made for me. PLUS – you can ride your bike everywhere in the city making it super easy to get around. We opted to walk in order to burn off all the calories we were eating – but you could easily bike around if you prefer! After our 72 hour mission to cover the best eats in Copenhagen, I’m 100% sure I’ve got you covered for your next visit! And don’t you worry Copenhagen, I’ll be back the second I get a chance to eat my way through even more of your beautiful city!

First things first – where to stay. We set up shop at the Ibsens Hotel which is conveniently located in the Nansensgade neighborhood. In case you didn’t know, Denmark is known for their interiors and Ibsens uses all local purveyors to create the chicest atmosphere. We had a corner room that looked out over the Nansensgade streets and it was the picture of perfection. It was easy to waltz outside and hit the ground running. But first – you cannot miss the breakfast!! It’s nordic cuisine at it’s finest and exactly what you need to fuel up for a day hitting the streets of Copenhagen. Muesli, freshly baked bread and preserves… done and done.

Now that we have somewhere fab to rest our heads, let’s get into the food! We’ll start counter clockwise because that’s how my brain is functioning today.

Baest – pizza at it’s finest. I make it a point to try as many pizzas as possible whenever traveling so while in Copenhagen, Baest was an obvious choice! Glass of wine and a pizza pie, done and done.

Harbo Bar: a super cute hipster wine bar where you can grab happy hour or a drink after dinner.

Clean Simple Local – because I’m a professional instagram stalker, I knew I had to check out this rooftop restaurant. The whole mean is local, organic, simple and delicious! I wish I could go back in time and get married here. It’s perfection.

Mother – another pizza place right in the heart of Copenhagen’s Meat Packing district. The Meat Packing district is basically where I’d like to live if I moved to Copenhagen. It’s home to dozens of restaurants and food stalls that put out majorly delicious eats.

Tivoli Gardens – it’s an old school amusement park and it’s worth a visit, especially if you fancy an ice cream cone!!

Kodbyens Fiskebar – Fish, chips and oysters. Enough said. It’s the perfect place for a fun dinner with friends and some beer.

Neighbourhood – more pizza. ALL DAY EVERY DAY.

Copenhagen Street Food – imagine all your favorite food trucks in one giant building. It’s incredible and you absolutely must go. It’s a bit of a walk, but just rationalize that in your head with how many calories you’re burning before you eat your face off.

Canal Tours Copenhagen – While we covered 35 miles of Copenhagen on foot, it’s nice to see some of the city by boat too. Hop on a canal tour and sit back and relax as you weave in and out of the canals as you learn about the history of Copenhagen. By the way – if you snag a Copenhagen card, the tour is free! And you get admission into tons of other can’t miss sights!

Atelier September – perhaps the most instagrammed avocado toast in the entire world. Head over for breakfast and grab a coffee while you’re at it.

Osterberg Ice Cream – the latest and greatest ice cream to hit the streets in Copenhagen. The flavors are incredible and change with the seasons.

Torvehallerne – a food hall that’s about 23 seconds away from the hotel. It’s loaded with every kind of food you could imagine. Tacos bars, espresso bars, farmers markets every day of the week, great places to grab a quick bite for lunch or happy hour. If you’re obsessed with flowers like me, their flower selection is not to be missed Hello, instagram!

Kalaset – while the hotel has an incredible breakfast offering – if you ever want to hop across the street and try something else, Kalaset is where it’s at! Pancakes. End of story.

Tivoli Gardens

Opened on August 15, 1843 by Georg Carstensen, Tivoli Gardens is the second oldest (or maybe third? depending on the source) still operating amusement park in the world (the first, Bakken, is also nearby just outside of København) and one of the most visited in Europe. It was the inspiration for Hans Christian Andersen’s Nightingale and even Disneyland after visits from Walt Disney in 1951 (Disneyland opened in 1955). The park is also home to one of the oldest running wooden rollercoasters, Rutschebanen (1914), and still has an operator on each train to control the speed with brakes.

Tivoli Gardens is located in the heart of the city, next door to København H (central station) and Københavns Rådhus (City Hall) on the border of Vesterbro and Indre By. Opening hours vary based on the season and it is closed during the winter (with exceptions for Halloween and Christmas). The price of admission to the park (included with the Copenhagen Card) is separate from the individual rides, but an unlimited ride pass can also be purchased. Claire is still in an anti-ride phase, so we opted to just enjoy walking around the park.

We spent most of our time at the playground, Rasmus Klumps World, with a variety of structures for running and climbing and even a separate area for smaller children. The area was compact enough for me to keep an eye on both kids, but also held a wide range equipment to hold their attention and run off some steam.

We visited the week before Easter, so decorations were everywhere for the holiday. Events are held throughout the year based on the season and include festivals, concerts, shows, movies, fireworks, and more.

I especially loved the cherry blossoms and the incredible level of detail in the gardens. All the spring flowers were gorgeous and quite the contrast to the snow flurries we had earlier that day!

Copenhagen in 5 days

Only one year after our last visit to Copenhagen so many new places opened. The city is always beautiful and inspiring and it’s necessary to go back there often in order to discover new food trends, design interiors and buildings mixed in its traditional and colourful beauty.

This time I visited Denmark with Lidia, a dear friend and someone who is Copenhagen cultured. We selected lots of places we wanted to check before we left. We also found new ones simply by walking around and as well, some were suggested by VisitDenmark who supported us with Volagratis. During the 5-day itinerary they recommended for us to visit Odense, a pretty city just 1 hour and a half far from the city.

This story will integrate the full Copenhagen map which we created on the website with the places we visited during our last two visits.

As a photographer I want to suggest to plan your days thoroughly, especially because during the winter, a big part of the day is dark and the weather is usually foggy. So, if you want to take good pictures with natural light, remember not to leave your hotel or apartment too late because it will get dark early. Also remember to book restaurants or try to get there when they open in order to be able to take some good pictures of the interiors when it’s not full of people inside.

4. Exploring the harbour like the locals

If you've ever dreamed of being the captain of your own boat, Copenhagen harbour is the perfect place for you to test your navigation skills. And you get to do it in an eco-friendly manner (talk about a win-win situation) by renting a solar-powered GoBoat. You'll be sure to blend in with the locals cruising around the harbour as the GoBoats encapsulates the Danish concept of hygge.

And talking of sustainable ways to conquer the waters in Copenhagen, we also have an eco-friendly option for those seeking a bit more action. You can rent a Green Kayak for free and explore Copenhagen from the water while collecting waste from the water surface.

Finally, do you remember those awesome floating cafés and bars we mentioned earlier? (Hint: if you don’t, may we suggest you read No. 1 again). You can actually rent a Green Kayak at both Kayak Bar and Green Island (convenient eh?).

Top 10 Innovations Denmark is Proud of

Denmark is a small country, but as a population of 5.5 million, the Danes are frontrunners of many innovations. While we are sad to admit their undeniably buttery and delicious Wienerbrød (pastry…and what Americans refer to as a ‘danish’) actually originates from Vienna, we have a whole list of other things that the Danes can take credit for inventing:

1. LEGO: These colorful, interlocking, building brick toys all started in little Denmark in 1932 in a workshop in Billund, Denmark run by Ole Kirk Kristiansen. LEGO sets have passed on from generation to generation as a classic in the playroom, and across cultures, and reinvented their toy to match the times by creating more intricate pieces and storylines behind their toy series. Sold around the world, many people do not know the origin of the name, which plays off the Danish language as a mashup of the two Danish words leg godt, meaning, play well.

Turns out though, LEGOs are not just for kids! The European Clinical Psychology core class used LEGOs in an exercise to understand well-being, an out-of-the-box workshop that Student Blogger Jordan Thomas thought was unexpectedly enlightening.

2. The Blue Tooth: These days the Bluetooth capability seems to be built into just about every device, allowing us to avoid fussy wires. It was actually invented by Ericsson, a Swedish cell phone company, but we’d like to throw some credit to Viking king Harald ‘Blåtand’ who inspired the name. Students in our Danish Language and Culture courses might recognize the compound in his name ‘blå’ meaning blue and ‘tand’ meaning tooth, in which you have a direct translation to ‘Bluetooth.’ When Ericsson sat down to think of a name for their new technology, they clearly must have looked to the King as a metaphor – he is famous for uniting Denmark and Norway under Christianity in the late 900’s, just as Bluetooth unites technology today!

3. Insulin: The Danes are responsible for finding the relationship between hemoglobin and the concentration of carbon dioxide – otherwise known as the Bohr Effect, published by Nobel Peace Prize Winner, August Krogh, and Christian Bohr (son of Niels Bohr) in 1904. This finding contributed to medical research that led to the discovery of insulin at Novo Nordisk, a Danish founded company that is still exploding with innovation today. Starting in fall 2015, we will be offering a new elective course called Diabetes: Diagnoses and Diseases…imagine the field studies this course will offer!

4. Wind Energy: Before you start fact checking us, we will admit that the Americans invented the wind turbine in 1888. Yet, there is good reason for why Denmark was named the Green Capital of Europe in 2014 – Danes LOVE wind energy and are considered leaders in innovation in the field of wind power! As a leading producer of wind turbines, Denmark has installed more than 90 percent of the world’s offshore wind turbines… Students who have traveled on the Sustainable Samsø DIScovery Trip will be quick to agree, as this trip takes them to the Danish island that is 100% renewable with environmentally sustainable energy.

5. The Loud Speaker: Danish engineer Peter Jensen and American, Edwin Pridham, put their heads together in 1915 to invent the ‘Magnavox’,’ the first loudspeaker the world had ever seen. As you can imagine, the use of a speaker for public address was forever changed, as large audiences could actually hear every word loud and clear! U.S. president Woodrow Wilson used the Magnavox in 1919 to address an audience in San Diego.

6. ‘Copenhagenization’: Copenhagen’s bike lanes swarm with cyclists who use their two wheels as a daily form of transport from day and night, rain or shine. The city is clean and the commuters seem to be happy – so why can’t every city uphold this sustainable lifestyle? Mikael Colville-Andersen asked this question back in 2007, and with that, coined the term ‘Copenhagenization’: the act of exporting the CPH bike lifestyle and urban infrastructure to another city. DIS Urban Design students got the chance to join in on Mikael’s fight for bikes, as they worked together to rethink one of Copenhagen’s urban spaces for the sake of bike traffic.

7. Handball: Way back when, it’s said that the Ancient Greeks and Romans were among the first to play a version of what we call handball today. It was later on that the modern game was invented, which many historians attribute to the effort of the Danes, Germans, AND the Swedes. However, historians suggest that Danish athlete, Holger Nielsen, played a big role in formalizing the rules and structure of the game. So although we aren’t confident who we can applaud for these efforts, one thing is for certain and DIS students living in homestays can attest to this: Danes love to gather round together to watch both men and women’s handball matches!

8. Danish Women in Power: When Helle Thorning-Schmidt became Denmark’s first female Prime Minister in 2011, she was neither the first nor the only woman to assume the reins of power in Denmark. The powerful role of women in Denmark makes for some pretty interesting discussions about gender equality, to be had in the Women and Leadership elective at DIS!
9. Pure Yeast: The year 1887 brought excitement to beer drinkers of Denmark, when Dr. Emil Christian Hansen discovered a method of creating pure yeast, ending the beer disease that plagued the country years before. This method changed everything for the industry, and the new yeast was rightfully named as Saccharmoyces Carlsbergensis.

10. New Nordic Wave: If only Danes from hundreds of years ago could see the development of Scandinavian food culture, design, and architecture. Don’t get us wrong – we love traditional Danish culture just as much as the next guy, yet, there is something freakishly creative, aesthetically pleasing, and absolutely lækkert about the new Nordic wave. Danish chefs and designers alike are collaborating on new norms by designing new buildings and menus that are functional and bring out the best in the local conditions, seasons, and resources. Copenhagen is home to the best restaurant in the world and as a city filled with Michelin stars, and critics from around the world have traveled to Denmark’s capital to give this new Nordic taste a shot – including the food critics of DIS, in the Nordic Culinary Culture course. And, several Danish architects, urban designers, and designers have become world leaders in innovation as explored in our course New Nordic Design.

Next Door Café's BLT^2

Madalynn Smith

Next Door Café is a hidden gem. A few blocks off the Strøget, this small, underground, hipster eatery serves a variety of coffees, fresh pressed juices, salads, sandwiches, and breakfast plates. After learning that the tomato and mozzarella sandwich was sold out, I settled on the BLT^2. Though, after my first bite, I realized that I wasn't settling. With fresh baked bread, a spicy mustard sauce, and two layers of bacon, lettuce, and tomato, this sandwich was arguably one of the best lunches I had on this trip. Not to mention, I sipped on the best iced americano I tried throughout my time in Denmark.

6.Street Food At Paper Island

Copenhagen Street Food at Paper Island is the name of Copenhagen's main street food area. Started in April 2004 there are a range of stalls, each eclectically decked out with its own personality. It's a favourite place for Danes during the summer time and there is plenty of recycled and upcycled seating. Food from all nationalities is available and there are some fabulous hot dogs, sushi and fries. They're not inexpensive at around $15-$25 per dish but you can look for bargains.

A stand there called Fish Art sells a burger that could easily feed two for 125KR or $25AUD. There's beef, cheese, whisky onions, prawns, scallops, bacon and triple cheese cream on a sourdough bun with a side of fries. Or Pølse Kompagniet has Street Food Super hot dogs (or regular). An super dog is 100KR ($20AUD) has two organic sausages, salad, roasted potatoes, carrots, onions, spicy mayo, parsley pesto and Caribbean Sauce. And for 25Kr more you can add on tiny new potatoes and a thin slice of crispy bacon. Unhinge jaw and enjoy.

Awesome Things to do in Copenhagen: Further Afield

If you have a little more time, I’d include a few day trips from Copenhagen to a few spots nearby.

Louisiana Museum of Modern Art

An expansive collection of modern art 25 miles north of Copenhagen.

Frederiksborg Castle

A gorgeous castle a short train ride away from the centre that also doubles up as the National Museum of History.

Kronborg Castle

To be or not to be…

Once one of the biggest castles in Medieval Europe, Kronborg is also famous for being the setting for Shakespeare’s famous play Hamlet.

Andersen & Maillard

The very first place I want to suggest has to be a cafè that is a roastery as well, obviously. Andersen & Maillard is one of those cozy places where the materials have textures and are original: wood, concrete, iron, marble. The light comes from big windows and coffee bean bags are placed all around. It’s a mix between a minimal design studio and a proper coffee factory. The coffee is great and the croissants are very well made.

Andersen & Maillard
Nørrebrogade 62, 2200 København, Denmark

Statement Coffee

This place is really close to the hotel where we stayed and 1 minute walk from the railway station, so it’s a good choice for a breakfast in the early morning or before you take a train (to Odense, for example). The interiors have a good colour palette and everything is very well-finished. The coffee is self-roasted and sold in three different coloured packages without any label.
I loved the La Marzocco Linea on the bench and the little circular marble tables in the corner.

Statement Coffee
Vester Farimagsgade 3, 1612 København, Denmark


This place is always my favorite… I can’t be in Copenhagen and not visit it. The industrial building is one of my favorite ever. It looks like a laboratory, with all the coffee machines and brewing accessories around that you can see on the right as soon as you walk in. On the opposite side there are some wooden tables next to the industrial windows and a grand glass wall shows you the big roastery behind the café. The coffee and food are amazing. This time I chose a Kenya single origin coffee to be made at home.

The Coffee Collective
Godthåbsvej 34B, 2000 Frederiksberg, Denmark


If you wake up in the morning craving a fresh baked croissant or cardamon bun, just head to Juno. The place is very small but the good smell is in the air of the neighbourhood. There’s a little table inside to enjoy a cup of filtered coffee or a bench outside.

Juno The Bakery
Århusgade 48, 2100 København, Denmark

This is the first tacoria we visited and found out that the place is known for being featured on Ugly Delicious on Netflix just after. This is a good stop if you’re around the Meat Packing District. The style is very mexican so if you’re a fan don’t miss it.

Hija De Sanchez
8 Slagterboderne København V, 1716 København, Denmark


I’ve been intrigued by this recipe of taco bread that I didn’t know. This colour comes from the rich taco culture in the North and Latin American street art. They make the bread starting from organic blue corn, that is naturally gluten-free. Blue corn has 20% more protein and a lower glycemic index. The colours of their recipes are really beautiful and I personally wanted to try them all. Unfortunately I had to save some space in my belly for other delicious bites.

Blue Taco
Blågårdsgade 1, 2200 København N, Denmark


This place is cool and so interesting to visit. The neon lights and illustrations of mermaids or devils on the walls make the tacoria have an exuberant personality. The taste of food is a bit lighter and less spicy than Hija De Sanchez. You can taste the delicious Mikkeller beer, since this restaurant is part of their locations.


I just mentioned a group of restaurant locations by Mikkeller. During this trip I tried some of them and this ramen bar is definitely worth it. The details are selected and very iconic with a taste of irony. You can select your favorite ramen and beer from a button machine and get your meal straight after.


As soon as I saw Norman, Slurp Ramen’s mascot, I immediately thought I wanted to get there and slurp the ramen (I’m still craving ramen while typing). The quality of this place goes beyond graphic design: their ingredients are high quality and they’re selected locally from the motherland.

Slurp Ramen Joint
Nansensgade 90, 1366 København K, 1366 Copenhagen, Denmark


The story of this place is really interesting. We were lucky to have been welcomed by the owners an hour before they opened for the lunch and were told about the whole construction of the restaurant on a floating platform. They made almost everything by themselves: the tables, the chairs, the bar. This is their approach: to be homemade and if it’s not possible, at least locally supplied. We had the best smørrebrød, hot smoked trout mousse and crispy vegetable steaks.
The place is in a new area and hopefully next time we’ll be able to visit more around there. You can reach Vandvid by harbour bus 991. It takes a little time but it’s definitely worth it.

Restaurant Vandvid
Ben Websters Vej 3, 2450, Denmark


When we decided to book a table at Kiin Kiin Bao Bao they said the only seats available were at 5pm or 9.30pm. We went for 5pm, opening time… It seemed like afternoon tea but as I said before, Copenhagen in March gets dark quite early, so we got to take perfect pictures of the restaurant with natural light. And since they had just opened, the space was empty. Beautiful!
And the food? Impressive.

Kiin Kiin Bao Bao
Vesterbrogade 96, 1620 København, Denmark


I’ve never been at the ex Noma building before. Restaurant Barr has been a great point to start from, especially during a weeknight dinner. We had dinner at the Beer bar, a 30-seat bar open seven days a week where you don’t need to book. They work closely with independent beer breweries to find a unique selection of beers for their guests that changes quite often. The kitchen is spectacular too, following the traditions of the Northern Sea region.

Barr Restaurant
Strandgade 93, 1401 København, Denmark

The first aspect I liked of this place, aside the fact that it has been awarded as one of the best cocktail bars on Earth, is the choice of neutral colours and natural light during my favorite time to enjoy a drink: Happy Hour. The interiors are really well selected with a timeless design: a great and comfortable bench, some seats near the windows and a more intimate area. As a Negroni lover, I loved my twist made with Amer Picon, a orange bittersweet French aperitif.

Nybrogade 10, 1203 København K, Denmark


As soon as you step in front of the Brønnum building, you get stunned from the beauty of it. The facade and the interiors are totally consistent with each other. It’s a proper bar for a cocktail before or after dinner, with colleagues or friends, due to the friendly area on the bench or by the big windows where you can see the streets outside. If you want an intimate area, just walk behind the door or book a private night at the Brønnum’s private dining room.

August Bournonvilles Passage 1, 1055 København, Denmark


If you’re ready for a good beer and you want to be surprised by the selection of Mikkeller, just pick a beer shop. I loved the raspberry-flavoured one I tried. I recommend to buy some cans and chips to be saved for later.

This is one of the ex-industrial places I always fall in love with, especially if they’re restyled keeping their authenticity and personality. In this old iron foundry and locomotive factory in Copenhagen, Brus means brewing, kegging, cooking, shopping, dining and drinking. The word “brus” is used when a liquid obtains a sparkling quality when carbonated. It’s the right place to socialise and support local breweries. If you need a hangover cure, Brus serves an amazing brunch every Saturday and Sunday.

Guldbergsgade 29, 2200 København, Denmark

Yume is a Japanese work for Dream. Their Dream is a sustainable world. That’s why they started this project that it is half a shop and half a magazine: they want to tell stories about people who convey a sustainable life, trying to inspire other people to do the same. At the same time, they support and sell products from local artisans. They call this will to help people and their opportunities Yume Promise. We walked past their shop and it looked very interesting. It’s one of those times when I feel proud to be a curious person.

Århusgade 138A, 2150 København, Denmark


This shop is a must to stop by every time I go to Copenhagen. It’s the right place to pick jars, glasses and kitchen tools that I can take back to Fusillo Lab.

Notre Dame
Nørregade 7, 1165 København, Denmark

If Denmark, Hay is famous because of their iconic design. Hay is the temple where you can admire all their amazing furniture and accessories. Even if Hay is everywhere nowadays, I suggest to visit ‘Hay House’ to check all their new products and take beautiful pictures of the spaces and of Amagertrov square.

HAY House
Østergade 61, 1100 København, Denmark


When I walked into Hotel Danmark I immediately had the same feeling I had when I stayed at Hotel SP34… I can tell this is part of Brøchner Hotels! My room was in the new section of the building (the green one) and it had dark tones, with a beautiful view of the palace on the opposite side of the road and a pretty balcony where I took a picture of the Hotel sign. I got to see the fireworks of Tivoli from it too. We had a tour of the hotel and I can say that it’s all beautiful, from the cool room with bunk beds to the most luxurious suite. The breakfast is entirely organic and very delicious and the wine hour is amazing if enjoyed on the rooftop terrace.

Hotel Danmark
Vester Voldgade 89, 1552 København V, Denmark


Even if it’s been my third time in Copenhagen, this is my first visit to Tivoli. As you know, I’m not a huge fan of touristic and entertainment activities, but Tivoli is definitely not something like that. From what I saw, Danish people like spending a good time there, having dinner or a snack or simply a walk. It’s a beautiful park and visiting it is really worth it, especially if you decide to get the Copenhagen Card, that entitles you free access.

Tivoli Gardens
Vesterbrogade 3, 1630 København V, Denmark


This is my favorite working space in the city, the headquarters of my favourite magazine. This time they changed the interiors a bit but I spent some time looking around, checking what was new there. I wanted to say thank you to them for sending the previous issue to me so I decided to buy the newest one.

Amagertorv 14, 1160 København, Denmark


It’s been my first visit to a university during a holiday. The design of the University of Copenhagen by C. F. Møller Architect is stunning because of the geometry and wooden and copper materials. The external shutters move depending on the sun and reduce the energy consumption. We took a tour around and loved the spiral staircase the most. The highest level is free-entry and gives a beautiful view of the city.

Maersk Tower – University of Copenhagen
3b Blegdamsvej, 2200 København N, Denmark


Superkilen is an urban park project built in the area of Nørrebro. The concept is to support and engage citizens around the park, one of Copenhagen’s most diverse neighbourhoods, each one participating supplying at least one artifact or idea.


It’s the street of the coloured houses, an iconic corner of Copenhagen with Nyhavn. I recommend to walk across this street and find yourselves in a little and colourful world.

Olufsvej Street
Olufsvej, 2100 København, Denmark


Odense is a little and colourful town, which is the third biggest city of Denmark. We decided to visit it on a Sunday, where most of the shops are closed, but the quietness with the short buildings make the day totally relaxing for a walk. Odense is associated with Hans Christian Andersen, famous fairytale writer, who spent his childhood there and it’s still possible to visit his house and museum.


It’s the prettiest Café in Odense. If you feel like a warm coffee, a rose-flavored soft drink or a piece of cake sitting on a cozy vintage table, don’t miss it. There’s lots of stuff around and you will want to spend a lot of time looking at the shelves. There’s a pretty backyard as well.

Café Fleuri
Nørregade 28, 5000 Odense, Denmark


We didn’t plan to have lunch at Jagger in Odense. It was on our list for Copenhagen, though. Since time for food was totally running out in Copenhagen, we decided to have a meal at the Odense spot instead. The burgers at Jagger are incredible… As soon as I saw the shiny buns I started craving them and I’m definitely proud to have tried them. Highly recommended!
