What I loved about Copenhagen

What I loved about Copenhagen

I have been twice to Copenhagen in the last 2 years and I can’t have enough of it! Now I can understand why it’s the world happiest city. The beautiful buildings, the friendliness of the people, the Danish “hygge”, the delicious sweets they make, the smell of fresh flowers… There are so many good things why I would recommend you to visit this city, but these are the ones I loved the most.

Copenhagen

It’s such a colorful city

Denmark has a long tradition of painting their building facades with different bright colors, and around Copenhagen you can find a lot of them. The colors vary from buildings right next to each other, creating a very nice contrast. Because Danes have an excellent style. The ones I liked the most were the ones at Nyhavn, which is the most characteristic place in the city, and the ones in the main shopping street Strøget.

The views from the Christiansborg Palace tower

Climb up the tower and experience the highest and most spectacular view of the city from different angles. It’s free to access and open from Tuesday to Sunday from 11:00 am to 9:00 pm

Paludan Bog & Cafe

It’s a super cozy café/restaurant/library, and also the cheapest place I’ve eaten in Copenhagen. The atmosphere is always very nice with people of all ages and the people who work there are very nice and helpful. Another point in favor: the dishes are huge for such a good price!

Bikes everywhere you go

Something I love about Northern Europe countries is that everyone rides bikes! EVERYWHERE! Cities are super bike friendly, specially Copenhagen, where you can find almost 400 km of bike lanes. If you want to experience Copenhagen like a Dane, I recommend that you rent a bike and explore the city with it.

Danish sweets are delicious

There isn’t much more to say here. If you visit Copenhagen, you should try some of their famous sweets at a bakery or café.

Free town Christiania

Christiania is a small self-governing commune in the city center of Copenhagen. Since it’s independent from the city, they have their own laws and are self-supplied with electricity and water. The place is famous for a hippie culture and the free dealing of hash and marijuana, it’s also full of green areas and some art galleries. Since it’s free to access, tons of tourists are attracted to this place every day. It’s worth to see this with your own eyes, especially because you are not allowed to take pictures in some areas.
