Copenhagen has quickly become one of my favourite cities. It’s relaxed, it’s stylish…and everyone seems happy. On my second visit to Copenhagen, we found ourselves roasting in the sweltering heat (quite a contrast from my first visit last April which was quite the opposite; we had snow, to be precise). It’s a very different atmosphere in the sunshine and one I enjoyed very much. I hugely envy their amazing cycling culture along with their stylish sense of design in every aspect of life. Hot dogs are obviously a go to food source – I couldn’t possibly keep track of how many I ate.

VISIT

Nyhavn /  New Harbour

This is a more traditional centre of Copenhagen and a must-visit spot, with restaurants lining the canal – the boat trips allow you to see multiple sights along Copenhagen’s stretch of Harbour.

The Black Diamond  /  The Royal Library

This is probably my favourite building in Copenhagen. Its design is impressive inside as well as its exterior. It’s irregular shape and tendency to sparkle in the sunlight earned it it’s name and is well worth a visit.

The Royal Danish Playhouse and Opera house are two more architecturally beautiful sights – all can be seen from a Nyhavn boat tour!

EAT

At Gorm’s pizzeria, either at Nyhavn or Magstræde (the Danish equivalent of Pizza Express, except way, way cooler) – so hyggeligt.

 LOL
