Copenhagen

Laura and I did some post Christmas Christmasing in Copenhagen last year. The city and the people are happy and heartwarming, and we loved wandering, even in the cold.

Month: December

Favorite Things: Oysters, Danish design, hygge, and pastries.

Accommodations: We stayed at First Hotel Kong Frederik. Touristy location, but very central and convenient to most major site. Clean and pretty, and super comfy bed.

Eats:

Oyster & Grill – Seriously yummy oysters. You can do like a seafood taster for two for a pretty reasonable price. Cute interior, located in the “Brooklyn” area of Copenhagen, Norrebro.

Kodbyens Fiskebaren – Best oysters we’ve had in Europe. The rest was good, but the oysters took the win. In Copenhagen’s “up-and-coming” meatpacking area.

Ma Poule – Possibly the best sandwich we’ve mutually ever eaten. It’s located in Toverhallerne, which is a food hall full of things you’ll want to eat, but this is what you want. Promise.

Meyers Bageri – Multiple locations, totally delicious pastries, just indulge.

108 – If you are like us, you can’t afford to eat at Noma, but 108 is their price-friendlier kid sister. We unfortunately didn’t make it in for dinner, but they have a corner cafe that does lunch and breakfast everyday. Pastries sell out fast, so go early. Below is a kombucha, coffee glazed, brioche muffin…hubba hubba.

Palægade – A little fancier, but great for the classic open faced sandwiches Denmark is famous for. Make a reservation, even at lunch.

Dop Den Okologiske Polsemand – There’s a few stands around the city. These aren’t American hot dogs, but they are f*ing delicious!

There were a thousand other places we could have eaten if we had more time and money. Some of the other recommendation we received were: Relæ, Manfreds, Bæst, Salon 39, Gaarden & Gaden, Mirabelle, Admiralgade 26, and Ved Stranden 10.

Drinks: 

Barking Dog – A mellow, dive feeling bar that knows how to make a solid cocktail. Don’t miss the negroni or hot tody.

Ruby Cocktail Bar – One of the original cocktail bars in Copenhagen. Set in a beautiful old townhouse. Very elegant.

Duck & Cover Stylish throw back to the golden age of danish design & best cocktail list in town.

Mikkeller & Friends – For beer fans.

A.C. Perchs – Darling tea shop with a cafe upstairs. Nice place to stop in and warm up.

See/Do: 

Ride Bikes – When it’s not too cold. Otherwise bundle up and walk around.
