Denmark Recap

Highlights from Copenhagen and Aarhus

COPENHAGEN

Eat:

  • HOTDOGS! Hotdogs are a staple in Denmark, the hotdog stands are everywhere you look. Try DØP for vegan friendly hotdogs, chicken sausage, and other interesting hotdog varieties! Plus, the buns at DØP are sourdough and all ingredients are organic
  • Torvehallerne (the Glass Market) for everything from fresh fish and meat and goods to take home and cook on your own to gourmet pizza, handcrafted chocolate and small restaurants for a quick bite or takeaway. I went to Smag, a gourmet salad bar, for a LOADED salad
  • The Organic Boho for vegan brunch GOALS! I literally can’t get over how loaded this brunch was (acai bowl + protein ball + seeded bread + sesame GF bun + stuffed + avo spread + hummus + sweet potato fries + banana coconut pancakes… on one plate!!). Everything at this adorable cafe is homemade, vegan and organic
  • Hope Bar for vegan brunch GOALS round 2 😉 Another loaded plate (sweet potato fries + homemade date & nut bread + smashed avo + hummus + coconut cream with granola & blueberries + a spirulina smoothie). Everything at this cozy cafe is homemade, vegan and organic as well
  • Grød for the most gourmet bowl of oats/porridge you will ever consume
  • California Kitchen when you want a loaded bowl (grains + proteins + lots of veggies on their menu!), a cozy soup, or THIIIICK sweet potato wedges

Don’t Miss:

  • Take the free walking tour to get a great overview of beautiful Copenhagen
  • Get your camera ready for Nyhavn- this is the picturesque waterfront that you see when you google images ‘Copenhagen’
  • Wander over to Christiania (aka Freetown), the independent, alternative/hippie scene inside Copenhagen. Although citizens of the Freetown have Danish passports they consider themselves completely independent. When you leave Christiania the sign that welcomed you into Freetown then reads “You are now entering the EU”
  • Take a walk up the [never ending] spiral staircase to the bell tower at the Church of Our Saviour for the BEST views of Copenhagen
  • Legs not tired? Walk up the winding Round Tower (Rundetaarn) for great views of the old town
  • Check out Nørrebro, this trendy neighborhood has everything from cozy cafes and cool bars to unique boutiques and fun restaurants
  • Visit Christiansborg Palace- I highly recommend checking out the ruins! I really enjoyed the kitchen as well, but I might be biased…
  • Get your retail therapy fix along Strøget, one of Europe’s longest pedestrian streets, filled with shops on shops on shops from the high ends (i.e. Louis Vuitton, Mulberry) to a more affordable range (i.e. H&M, Zara)
  • Don’t forget to snap a picture of the little mermaid, after all you can’t visit Copenhagen without seeing her!

 

AARHUS

Eat:

Don’t Miss:

  • Spend (at least) a half day at Den Gamle By (the old town). This open-air museum displays the history and culture in Denmark through three decades and is synched to the current season (i.e. I visited in November so the exhibits were related to life throughout various decades during Christmas time). I found it really fascinating and would highly recommend checking out!
