  • Hacienda Café

    1

    Café

    perfect, low-key sunday hang-out if you just want to read, have a beer or a glass of wine, or listen to music. food not superb, but surroundings make up for it.

  • Torvehallerne

    2

    Food Court

    “pick up something for your next journey. an excellent range of vendors in what was once a horribly neglected plaza next to ørstedsparken.”—svanes

  • Aamanns Etablissement

    3

    Scandinavian

    “amongst my favorite places for lunch for bona fide smørrebrød, very close to where adriana & i lived. fyi, check out 'kartoffelrækkerne,' the nearby rowhouses.”—svanes

  • Rosenborg Slot

    4

    Palace

    adriana insists i include this, for it is presumably quite unique that a city has a 15th century castle in the middle of town, that's home to the crown jewels.

  • Restaurant Schønnemann

    5

    Scandinavian

    “if you want a classic danish lunch (our biggest meal of the day), then here you must go. die-hard old school copenhagen. be sure to have akvavit + beer as well.”—svanes

  • døp

    6

    Hot Dogs

    “danish hot dogs are so delicious yet they're grossly artificial. not these, however. this is truly good organic danish street food! get one with "det hele."”—svanes

  • Restaurant Koefoed

    7

    Scandinavian

    “expense account kind of place. high-end meals. consistently named amongst most highly regarded restaurants in the city. the chef is one of DK's culinary stars.”—svanes

  • Cykelmageren

    8

    Bike Shop

    there are 3 innovative bike shops in town. this one + the remarkable sögreni (sogrenibikes.com) + christiania bikes (christianiacykler.dk)

  • Designmuseum Danmark

    9

    Art Museum

    “the museum of decorative arts offers an outstanding collection and a 300 yr. old garden/courtyard for when you need a rest. formerly called kunstindustrimuseet.”—svanes

  • Kajakhotellet Christianshavn

    10

    Rafting

    “touring cph's canals by kayak is a GREAT way to see the city. competent guides, small groups, all gear included plus a pitstop for beer. kajakole.dk/en”—svanes

  • Christiania

    11

    Neighborhood

    “once a functional alternative to mainstream values, now in its last stages but still an embodiment of tolerance: proof that there's room for living differently.”—svanes

  • Kadeau København

    12

    Scandinavian

    “everyone knows noma, of course. copenhagen foodies also know kadeau. dishes inspired by the riches from the island of bornholm, home to the chefs. great spot.”—svanes

  • BLOXHUB

    13

    Non-Profit

    opening in may 2018, a massive design center designed by rem koolhaas promises to become a new leading edge forum for urban planning, architecture and design.

  • Dansk Design Center

    14

    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.”—svanes

  • Tivoli

    15

    Theme Park

    twilight is the best time to go. thousands of lights come on in the various gardens and there's often a live band playing somewhere and a buzz in the air.

  • Store VEGA

    16

    Music Venue

    “the city’s best club and a great place to hear live music – 3 levels, very democratic door policy, no attitude, beautiful crowd. open until dawn or so.”—svanes
