I’ve always heard amazing things about Copenhagen so I was really excited to go! We only had two days and I did a lot of research to figure out what we wanted to see so here were my favorites!
Copenhagen is known as the most bike-friendly city in the world and there’s a reason for that. I’m not completely comfortable riding bikes everywhere, but I loved it here. There is a separate curb that separates cars from bikes and then bikes from pedestrians on the sidewalk. Every city should be bike-friendly and encourage biking as much as Copenhagen does.
To actually get a bike when visiting, there are a lot of bike-rental options. Copenhagen has its own city bike system, but we chose Donkey Republic because I saw it on a guide and loved it! My favorite part is that it came with a place for your phone so I was able to easily look at the map of where I was going while biking.
Everyone takes pictures of this area when visiting and there’s a reason why. It’s adorable and just comforting to walk along the water. There are also restaurants along the side where you can sit outside and enjoy the view. It was cold, but they had heaters and it was great.
This was at the top of my list because I saw a picture and LOVED the unique and simplistic architecture! It was just a bonus that it had a great view (even though it was really foggy) and a museum inside it!
I’m not going to lie, this wasn’t at the top of my list because I’m not into theme parks. But it was at the top of Nicho’s list so we went and I loved it! I guess it had to be really special if it was the inspiration for Disney World. We didn’t ride anything but just walked around, ate at the CUTEST bakery, Cakenhagen (HA punny).
I absolutely LOVED this museum!! Mainly because of the area in the middle with all of the plants, but it also has the most interesting layout and some really unique art.
I’ve loved Scandinavian design for so long so I was REALLY excited about this museum! It has so many different things, but all focused on the history of Danish Design! Furniture, decor, fashion.
There were a lot of palaces in Copenhagen to choose from, but we ended up choosing Christiansborg because it looked beautiful and was in the city near other places we wanted to see. I definitely think it was the right choice! There was a room that looked so much like the library in Beauty and the Beast and it was amazing!!
Strøget is a street with a bunch of shopping all along it, but even if you don’t want to shop it’s just so pretty to walk down.
I was really excited to shop in Copenhagen for a change in options and also to see all the second-hand stores! I only ended up buying earrings and a mug, but I love them 🙂
Here are my favorite places I went to:
