Birthday weekend in Copenhagen

This year I spent my first birthday abroad. In Copenhagen to be exact. I wanted to visit this incredibly pretty and inspiring city for quite some time. In November, I visited Stockholm together with one of my best friends and the moment I arrived back home after a winter weekend in this stylish (and cold and snowy) city, I started planning my next visit to Scandinavia. To Copenhagen.

When I think of Copenhagen I think of cozy coffee places, the streets that are not short of inspiration dotted with attractive Danes with their blonde hair, effortlessly chic style and laid-back attitude, and the stylish street style (Think Modström, & Other Stories, Selected Femme en Object).

Here are a few of my best tips for a weekend trip to Copenhagen:

  • Grundtvigs kirke resides at the top of a steep hill and is definitely worth a visit or two! The inspiring building with its clean and light lines and majestic high ceiling wowed me and the other visitors. There is something so serene and calm about this place. Address: På Bjerget 14B, 2400.
  • Kaffeplantagen in stylish Nørrebro. An enviable atmosphere, lovely barista’s and tasty breakfasts. Address: Sankt Hans torc 3, 2200.
  • While in Copenhagen, you have to visit Frederiksberg Allé. A lovely street with lots of adorable coffee places and design shops. At the end of the street, you’ll find the most incredible parc of Copenhagen, the perfect place to relax for a little while and enjoy a tasty picnic.
  • Parterre Christianshavn. This charming and cozy little places has the perfect Scandinavian style and still retains the friendliness of Danish charm. I especially loved the breakfasts they offer here: smorgasbord with sliced avocado and a sprinkling of rock salt. Enjoy! Address: Overgaden Oven Vandet 90 1415.
  • Tante T Thesalon. The perfect place to enjoy the best tea of Copenhagen in a typical English tearoom. Address: Viktoriagade 6.
  • Kompa’ 9. This cozy place offers organic coffee, fair prices and delicious food. My favourites were the warm chocolate made with dark organic Bojensen chocolate and a ryebread sandwich for lunch. Address: Kompagnistræde 9, 1208.
