Last weekend I spent two and a half days in Copenhagen with my family. The plan was to stroll around the city, admire Danish design, eat pastries, drink coffee and generally have a hygellig time.
We took the train from Hamburg and were greeted with a very rainy, windy Copenhagen (which made walking around not very enjoyable). But the next day we were more lucky – no rain and even a bit of sun. From our hotel (Axel Guldsmeden, which I can highly recommend), we set out to see the old town, shops like Stillleben and Illums Bolighus (must-sees if you like Danish design), the Torvehallerne food halls, Nyhavn, Kastellet and even the little Mermaid (I finally got to see it – when I’d been to Copenhagen before, I had never made it there).
I had forgotten just how expensive Copenhagen is (one night we had dinner at Mother, and the pizzas were around 20 Euros each; also expect to spend at least 7 Euros for a glass of wine and 4 to 5 Euros for a cafe latte), so maybe one weekend is just the right period of time to get to know the city – unless you bring your own food and drinks. Haha … I still hope I can come back some time in the summer.
Here’s what I wore last Saturday in Nyhavn:
