Copenhagen is a city that’s been on my ‘Places To Visit’ list for years now, so I’m delighted to have finally gotten to go there. While I will say it wasn’t my most favourite European city that I’ve been to (Amsterdam, Budapest and Bruges would probably be my top 3), we did have a lovely weekend, and if you’re planning a trip there soon, I have some great recommendations for you!
Where We Stayed: 25hours Hotel Indre By
Where To Eat:
There definitely isn’t a lack of great places to eat in Copenhagen, but one thing I will say is that when everyone goes on about how expensive Denmark is, they aren’t lying. Now, nothing was extortionately priced, but overall, things were a good bit more expensive than most European cities. It’s hard to give an exact example but I would say when you convert the prices over to euro, everything has at least €3-4 added onto the price compared to what you’d pay in Dublin. Anyway, enough on that, below are some of the places we ate that I’d highly recommend saving for your next trip to Copenhagen.
– Cantina: I’d seen quite a few people recommend Cantina for delicious Italian food and it didn’t disappoint. Anywhere with burrata on the menu is good in my eyes, and the rigatoni was also delicious!
– Apotek57: There’s certainly no shortage of coffeeshops or bakeries in Copenhagen, and I think Apotek57 had to be my favourite. Amazing filter coffee (that was the only hot coffee option, and I appreciated the simplicity), and delicious baked goods, it’s definitely one to pop into.
– La Neta Nørrebro: So some of you may have heard of Mikkeller, who make delicious beer, but they actually also have quite a few different restaurants (from ramen to tacos), and La Neta is one of those. My favourite food will always be Mexican, and I have to say, La Neta was one of my favourite taco places I’ve tried in quite a while. I’d highly recommend ordering the Chillakillers!
Things To Do:
Usually on weekend city breaks like this I’d have a jam packed itinerary with a schedule for all the sights we’re going to see each day, but as this trip was for my birthday, I wanted to take it a bit easier than usual and just enjoy the city. We did see quite a few cool things though, so I’ll pop them below for you to take note.
So there we have it, my definitive (not really) travel guide to Copenhagen. It’s a fairly compact city, so we actually didn’t use public transport all that much, but they do have a very handy app called DOTs that you can download and buy a travel pass on that works on pretty much all of their transport, and also includes journeys to the airport. I hope you’ve found this helpful, and if you are heading to Copenhagen anytime soon, enjoy!
