  • Christiania

    1

    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.

  • Sweet Treat

    2

    Café

    somewhat new and totally tiny locals café and coffee spot that's become a favorite of rene redzepi (he owns that little place that nobody knows, called noma).

  • Café Nemoland

    3

    Bar

    if you are venturing into christiania, then here's a good spot for an outdoor beer. the vibe is low key, a bit rugged and rowdy, with some tourists.

  • Lagkagehuset

    4

    Bakery

    the best pastries in the world come from vienna. the next best come from lagkagehuset. alas, as their empire grows, their service is increasingly less personal.

  • Christianshavns Bådudlejning & Café

    5

    Boat Rental

    an elegant canal-side café that's ideal for an outdoor lunch or a beer in the afternoon sun. kayak tours in progress occasionally stop in for refreshments.

  • Dansk Design Center

    6

    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.

  • Havnebadet Islands Brygge

    7

    Pool

    one of the city's great gathering spots. there are green lawns, picnic areas and pools that float in the river. many cafés and take-away options nearby.

  • Kajakhotellet

    8

    Boat Rental

    best way to see copenhagen during the summer is by kayak tour on the canals. kajak ole is where you start. well run. URL here: kajakole.dk

  • Tietgenkollegiet

    9

    Residence Hall

    if you have time, check out the sprawling campus for copenhagen university and the IT university. the architecture and urban planning is really impressive.

  • Cafe Dyrehaven

    10

    Café

    popular spot for those who've been out clubbing the night before. healthy brunches, excellent sandwiches and coffee, a chill vibe that won't annoy the hangover.

  • Sort Kaffe og Vinyl

    11

    Coffee Shop

    tiny café located a wee bit off the beaten path. coffee and records. a small room in the back for browsing books and periodicals. bona fide.

  • Granola

    12

    Café

    one of my favorite cafés on one of my favorite streets - værnedamsvej - the epicenter of danish foodie culture. get the salmon sandwich.

  • Bang & Jensen

    13

    Café

    no matter how often it gets worn down through neglect and whims deferred, i'll always have a soft spot for bang & jensen. good vibe, morning, afternoon & night.

  • Din Nye Ven

    14

    Café

    unpretentious spot with house-brewed pilsener. mostly about the beers. good place to start your evening.

  • Torvehallerne

    15

    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.

  • Ørstedsparken

    16

    Park

    when one needs to lay low, choose the sloping ramparts by the water, which was once part of the moat that formed the old city's defensive perimeter. relaxed!
