TileCreative had a quick jaunt over to Copenhagen to see what all the fuss was about. Scandinavian design delights, food like you wouldn’t believe and one of the worlds oldest theme parks right in the city centre.
CPH as it’s probably known by some people is the current mecca of cool, you can’t open a decent magazine or even look at the cover of one without seeing a Scandinavian influence. Once the flights were sorted and after an extensive search we opted for an Air BnB option right smack bang in the area we wanted to be, Vesterbro. Perfect place to set up shop for 4 days in the City, walking distance from most things and generally a brilliant area. There are fantastic hotels in CPH if you’ve got the money however getting a large apartment with 2 balconies for literally half the price kind of made our decision for us.
Restaurant wise as you’re probably aware you won’t be short of options. We opted for Kodbyens Fiskebar down in the meatpacking district which is worth a walk around even if you’re not heading to any of the venues in particular. Neighbourhood is a pizza bar but on Sunday’s it does the most amazing brunch board, in my opinion you’d be missing out if you didn’t go. The pick of the bunch however was without doubt Amass, a taster menu to end all taster menus and service from chefs and staff who put everything into their dishes, literally and metaphorically.
Evenings entertainment wise Tivoli Gardens is a must. We went for the evening around 6pm until close, this park is one of the oldest in the world and inspired Walt Disney himself. There are a few little bars and restaurants in there, some classic fairground games, I tried my hand at archery and managed to win a fluffy keyring.
CPH over 4 days gives you plenty to look at, plenty to do and allows you to leave with a sense of wanting to go back for more. We did the Design Museum, The Rundetaarn which is another must and a lot of general walking and looking. My advice is plan before you go, there’s so much choice of good food for example that you may be in danger of spending too long deciding whilst you’re there, do that whilst you’re at work instead.
