  • Rosenborg Slot

    1

    Palace

    it's rare to find a 15th century castle in a city center but here it is, nestled in the royal gardens (where i proposed to adriana). home to the crown jewels.

  • Atelier September

    2

    Café

    bright lovely province of the copenhagen trust fund set, offering hygge aesthetic that's on the verge of cliché: observe it in its naturally privileged habitat!

  • Bo-Bi Bar

    3

    Dive Bar

    how i miss this place. weather-beaten dive bar where academics & journalists linger for robust late night arguments. probably beer & wine only + cash only.

  • Designmuseum Danmark

    4

    Art Museum

    a museum of decorative arts and design with outstanding collection and rotating exhibits and a 300 yr. old garden/courtyard for when you need a rest.

  • Skuespilhuset

    5

    Theater

    i love this building. half of it suspended over the waterfront. a wonderful place to soak up the atmosphere of the harbor, and to see theater, of course.

  • Kajakhotellet Christianshavn

    6

    Rafting

    tour via kayak is a GREAT way to see CPH and its canals. competent guides, small groups, gear included plus a waterside pitstop for beer. kajakole.dk/en

  • Vor Frelsers Kirke

    7

    Church

    a baroque 17th century church where one can climb all the way to the top of the corkscrew steeple, for a wonderful view of christianshavn and copenhagen.

  • Dansk Design Center

    8

    Design

    similar to NYC's cooper hewitt, the DDC offers an insightful walk through of the history of danish design, succinctly defining its role in danish society.

  • Botaniq

    9

    Vegetarian / Vegan

    wasn't there when we lived in town, but we would've loved it. vegan gourmet food made from locally produced ingredients? everything is vegan, even the candles.

  • Kalaset

    10

    Café

    just off of charming nansensgade is a lovely spot for brunch, with vegan and vegetarian options. relaxed interior evokes eccentric swedish grandmothers.

  • Café Bankeråt

    11

    Café

    bankeråt means bankrupt: exquisitely macabre elegance in the décor with large experimental works of taxidermy. coffee & breakfast with the international crowd.

  • Lidkoeb

    12

    Cocktail

    bright and airy semi-hidden whisky bar, spread out over three floors. what? copenhagen prices, to be sure, but comes with a healthy dose of copenhagen cool.

  • Relæ

    13

    Scandinavian

    outside the city center on a trendy street once known for hell's angels & drug dealers, an avant garde no-frills spot led by a chef who got his start at noma.

  • Ordrupgaard

    14

    Art Museum

    not far from dyrehaven, a humble, often overlooked museum for modern art that features mainly danish work, but also has a new annex designed by zaha hadid.

  • Eremitageslottet

    15

    Art Museum

    this is your walking destination while wandering through dyrehaven (the old royal hunting grounds). spectacular panoramic views. denmark in a nutshell.

  • Louisiana Museum of Modern Art

    16

    Art Museum

    all-time favorite museum of art on the planet. breathtaking setting, a true oasis on the sound an hour's ride by train north of town. very solid art collection.
