02 Jun A quick bike around Copenhagen…
Following my previous post on random find ‘On the Grid‘ website, where designers all over the world pitch in to curate all the best places to eat, sleep, visit, explore – I decided to test it out on a long weekend (4 nights, 5 days) trip to Copenhagen, well-known as the happiest city in the world. I can happily report, despite experiencing weather from all four seasons in the space of a few days and with temperatures falling well into the minus figures, I had an amazing time and was very, very happy.
The website could do with a few more places, however I recognise that it is a work in progress and that is worth noting. Generally speaking I think it’s a good starting point and great reference to begin adventures. Copenhagen is full of amazing Scandi, nordic, minimalist design, so naturally every corner is right up my street! If I’m honest, I have so much that I still want to see, it is definitely a place I would return to and I can’t wait to do so.
There is so much to recommend, I can’t possibly list them all. However here are my notable 5 areas:
- If we start with the Design scene, I would definitely recommend HAY, Playtype, Norman, Posterland, Artium
- Food we have Grød, Paper Island (Papirøen), West Market, Rajissimo (for their waffle on a stick!)
- Places to visit Tivoli Gardens, Nørrebro, Rundetaarn, Rosenborg Castle, Superkilen Park
- Random things to satisfy my Hobbies and Interests, Kaktus, Søstrene Grene (similar to UK’s Tiger, but better!), Hoptimist
- Finally Copenhagen is actually quite a small little place to visit, everything is within walking distance. But I recommend you rent a bike, it’s a lovely way to travel, everyone does it and a great Experience!
If you have a few days spare and looking for a quick holiday, I would definitely recommend Copenhagen, let me know if you do and how it goes!
