Copenaghen, My 'Don’t Miss' Places


The best thing in Copenaghen is the mix between old and new.

Houses of the eighteenth century with roofs, cobbled paving squares, canals and spires with gold domes but at the same time there are new architectural lines, new technologies and the well known and exclusive Danish design. In Copenaghen the road are very large, the bicycle paths are respected religiously, and you can visit the city in a very easy way by foot or by bike…I always prefer to walk a lot to discover all corners of the city. The most famous tourist place is Tivoli with its gardens, fun fair and bars. But if I remember well there is a Scootiepye location about that and also about the Nyhavn chanel. My favourite district is Christianshavn and the Islands Brygge. If you go to Christiania – by the way don’t forget to check the wonderful shots of Charlotte Ostervang, an oasis of “freedom” in the heart of the city (a visit there is always surprising), go a little bit further in the direction of the sea and you will find beautiful places in Christianshavn area. Even if you don’t have a lot of time, don’t miss this area. The best museum is Louisiana in the neighborhood of the rich seaside city Humlebaek. From Copenhagen it’s 36 minutes by train, after that you have to walk for ten minutes.

In Copenaghen the best gallery, I think, is Overgaden. There are interesting events of photography and contemporary art. After the gallery go to Lagkagehuset, the best bakery in the city. The Opera House is also a place to go, a modern theatre in which you can find from classic to contemporary music events. Don’t miss The Dansk Design Center just in front of Tivoli. The best place to buy some design objects of young Danish designers is the Designer Zoo, after shopping stop for a rest and a coffee to Granola in Vaerndemsvej 4 . If you have to celebrate something special go to have a dinner to Noma. They only use Scandinavian products. The food was exciting and the bill was depressing (it’s a expensive but worth it, my company paid for me ☺))). It’s an heavenly experience. I like this city!
