I spent the weekend in Copenhagen and I thought I’d share with you how I spent my 72 hours wandering such a lovely city.
FOOD & DRINK
The most important thing, right? Copenhagen has such a wide variety of options for food; from instagrammable restaurants and brunch spots to trendy street food.
Mad & Kaffe
Mad & Kaffe was a lovely cafe located in Vesterbero. The idea was that you picked 3 to 5 small plates.
I opted for some avocado, chorizo and Øllebrød (Danish Rye Bread Porridge) and it was so delicious.
Not to mention the cup of coffee that I had to go with it was a great wake me up for a Saturday morning brunch.
One of the best food experiences I had in Copenhagen was at the street food market, Paper Island, which had cuisines from around the world.
I opted for a Korean chicken bun, and for dessert a salted caramel cheesecake with the best cup of coffee I have ever tas
The best thing about the Paper Island was the buzzing atmosphere and the Christmas decorations. Unfortunately Paper Island will be closing down at the end of December, but it is just one example of the many street food markets that Copenhagen has to offer.
THINGS TO DO
My favourite place to visit was the Tivoli Gardens, the world’s second oldest operating theme park. It was so beautifully decorated for Christmas and so lovely to spend a few hours wondering around the park, going on some of the rides, and drinking hot chocolate. This gave me such christmassy vibes, I absolutely loved it.
Other places I visited included;
- Observatory Tower, where you could see 360 degree views of Copenhagen
- Christiansborg Palace, which houses the Danish government, the Danish supreme court as well as the Danish Monarch
- Planetarium, if you’re interested in space and science, this museum is for you
- Freetown Christiana, an autonomous neighbourhood famous for it’s carefree living and street art
- HC Anderson Fairy Tale House, to discover the life of author and poet Hans Christen Anderson and the inspiration behind his stories.
I highly recommend getting the Copenhagen pass if you do spend some time in Copenhagen as it allows you to pay a fixed price (I paid £75 for a 72 hour pass) and you have free access to over 70 attractions and free public transport.
can’t not mention the minimalist Scandinavian interior and fashion. From street style to apartments (and even the airport was stunning), I fell in love with architecture and style of Copenhagen, and can’t wait to incorporate some of these designs into my own apartment one day.
I loved Copenhagen and I’d really recommend going if you want to have a weekend away.

P.S. It was freezing in Copenhagen so I really had to warm up. Shop my winter warmers:
