Tall buildings, colourful façades, innovative cuisine and a lively atmosphere. That's Copenhagen! Go for a weekend and see for yourself.
Where should you start? In 48 hours, we'll take you to the different hotspots and hidden gems in the city. You'll be well prepared to kick off your weekend in Copenhagen. It's so handy!
Day 1 - During the day
What better way to start the day than with a hearty Danish breakfast? A Danish breakfast usually consists of dark rye bread with toppings, but is also often topped with sweets. Enjoy a tasty breakfast at Café Lillebror, or eat as much as you can at the breakfast buffet in Café Bang & Jensen. In Bang & Jensen, you can also use the internet, so you can hang out and relax, while waking up, and even research some information for your day.
Day 1 - Night
Want to enjoy a tasty drink down by the water? Then you have to go to Nyhavn. The 300-metre long street is full of bars. During the day, the street is pleasantly busy, but at night is comes even more to life! Be sure to try one of the delicious meals on the menus. Chefs in Copenhagen are particularly good at preparing traditional ingredients in new ways, known as New Danish Cuisine.
Time for your second day in this trendy city! Is it a hot day? Then you can start the day with a swim in one of the canals, just like the locals! But you can't do that just anywhere, only in one of the designated harbour pools. After your swim, enjoy a lovely breakfast at Wulff & Konstali. This new bakery/restaurant is sometimes called one of the hotspots of Copenhagen. You can eat a sumptuous buffet with fried eggs, sausages, fresh Danish pastries and sandwiches. Tip: order a tasty sandwich to go. Because the food is so delicious, you'll want to have some for lunch as well.
Day 2 - During the day
Yesterday, you visited many large classical buildings in the centre. So today, you can go down to Freetown Christiania. This is a partly autonomous district in Copenhagen in Christianshavn. The district is often in the news for drug trafficking in the Green Light District. As a tourist, you're not allowed to take any photos. But Christiania is interesting due to its different outlook on life. The district is car-free and environmentally friendly, has special cabins that you won't find anywhere else in Copenhagen and music and art play an important role. It's definitely an extraordinary sight!
Day 2 - Night
Want to go out with the locals? Then try Kødbyen, literally translated as "meat city". This area is located on the opposite side of the tracks to the city centre. Many of the old butcher's shops in these streets have been converted into entertainment venues and art galleries. You can go here without finding crowds of tourists. But you can also go out in Christiania!
