You may not be able to get into (or afford) Noma, the world’s best restaurant; but Copenhagen has plenty more Michelin stars under its belt. Relæ is a prime example. Providing experimental dishes, it keeps an element of surprise by not revealing the daily menu on their site. Instead, you select whether you’re an Omnivore, Herbivore, or you’re open to trying it all. For something a bit more traditional you can enjoy a classic Danish lunch known as smørrebrød; an open sandwich of rye bread piled high with different toppings, from herring to egg and raw beef. Meanwhile, the city’s café culture is highly evolved. From the chic Café Europa 1989 to the nostalgic charm of Granola you’ll find plenty of opportunities to sip coffee and watch the world go by.
Keen shoppers will love the compact city’s design-led stores. Home to famed Danish design brands, Copenhagen is a great place to shop for homeware and fashion. Head to Elmegade, the vibrant shopping street in Nørrebro to find stylish new additions to your wardrobe in the chic boutiques. Stay at luxury Copenhagen hotels around the central Strøget shopping street to be steps away from the young fashion brands near City Hall Square or, Illum department store and the sleek design shops near Amagertorv.
Visit much-loved Tivoli, the world’s second-oldest amusement parks (opened in 1843) for adrenaline-pumping roller-coasters, traditional pantomime shows and plenty of amusement arcades. Looking for a festive getaway? Unsurprisingly, Copenhagen’s Christmas markets are very stylish. Each year, thousands of fairy lights illuminate Tivoli Gardens Christmas Market and visitors browse stalls of tasteful gifts while sipping a yuletide beer known as Julebryg.
For nighttime adventure, head to the old meat-packing district of Kødbyen. Popular club Jolene showcases one of the best DJ lineups in the city. Alternatively, you can party until dawn with revelers at Bakken or drink cheap beer at traditional Danish pub, Mesteren & Lærlingen. Check out the cheap Copenhagen hotels near Central Station, just north of the meatpacking district, to stay close to the action.
