Travel Guide: Copenhagen, Denmark!

April 18, 2019

 

 

Denmark  is one of the happiest places on earth, its also known for its vast amount of bike riders as well as the word hygge. Hygge has been a big word for retail companies, it's what everyone is striving to be. What to know the definition?

 

hyg·ge

/ˈh(y)o͞oɡə,ˈho͝oɡə/

noun

  1. a quality of coziness and comfortable conviviality that engenders a feeling of contentment or well-being (regarded as a defining characteristic of Danish culture).

Everything in Denmark was picture perfect... except the weather. But that is a whole different story! All I can say is visit during the spring, fall or summer - I can't even imagine how much more beautiful it is with green grass and lush flowers.

 

Let's get into our itinerary and what we did in Denmark:

 

Day 1:

Our first day was a little rough, we overslept after being up for over 24 hours - so we started our day later than anticipated. ​

  • Tivoli Gardens:A winter wonderland dream during the winter months. An amusement park filled with Christmas decor and beautiful lights.

 

  • Vapinos: We ate  at this delicious pizza joint with the best Somersby rosé cider a flavor only served in Europe!

 

Day 2:

  • Magstræde - a colorful cobblestone street made for the best picturesque photo.

 

 

  • Christiansborg Palace: a beautiful place and government building, such a cool place to walk by.

  • Canal Cruise: My most favorite thing we did! We took an informative canal cruise, which cost under $15. I loved hearing the history, learning about the country and passing some of the famous Denmark monuments. Do not miss this!

 

 

 

  • Nyhavn: My second favorite thing! I mean... who doesn't love a colorful canal way filled with hygge restaurants. Every single restaurants we passed had the most dreamy decor.

 

 

  • Nyhavns Færgekro: We couldn't leave Denmark without trying an open-faced sandwich.

 

 

 

  • Rajissimo: A gelato and dessert store. Try a waffle on stick - so fun and delish!

 

 

 

  • Round Tower: A tower and observatory, one of the oldest in Denmark. The admission fee was super cheap - $4. It has a gorgeous lookout at the top and if you're not scared of heights they have a small entrance at the top where you can see the whole building from beneath your feet. I seriously thought I was going to fall through!

 

  • Rosenborg Castle/ Botanical Gardens/Amalienborg Palace: a quick pitstop to view all of these beauties!

 

  • Vapiano: we were obsessed with this place, so we went straight back for dinner and my fav cider!
