Our favourite places in Copenhagen
We escaped the London hustle and bustle for a long weekend of fashion, culture and food in Copenhagen.
Soon after arriving in Denmark’s capital, we understood completely why it’s renowned to be home to the happiest people on Earth. The Danish way of life is relaxed, content and wholesome, making it one of the most livable cities ever. After touching down, we stumbled across a fairy tale-esque coffee hut called Kafferiet, the makers of ‘Slow Coffee’. The barista was so friendly that we ended up staying there for over an hour listening to her talk about her favourite places in Copenhagen.

For architecture lovers, Grundtvig’s Kirke in the Bispebjerg district is a structural delight and a must to visit. The lofty interior designed by Peder Vilhelm Jensen-Klint is beautifully serene and peaceful.

We could have spent all day at The Botanical Gardens, roaming the magnificent Palmhouse and the Cactus rooms. A staircase spirals into the roof of the Palmhouse to a viewing platform that wraps around the whole room , from there you can spot rare, exotic plants.

We caught a train to the Louisiana mid afternoon to see it’s beautiful collections.
We had a typical Danish dinner in the restaurant over-looking the sea, whilst being serenaded by jazz musicians!
