Copenhagen October 2015

Weee, we´re going to Copenhagen again this fall! In just 2 weeks´ time we´ll be strolling down its quaint alleys and go for an amazing smørrebrød in one of its pretty cafés. We´re celebrating a friend of ours´ 50th birthday on Saturday and otherwise we´re thinking of just going with the flow, no shopping budget this time, so we might as well follow Nana Hagel´s recommendations from her interview with Ignant. In case you haven´t heard of her (although she´s quite famous!), she´s a travel and food enthusiast and writes for several magazines. 😉

Kompa’ 9
Kompagnistræde 9

Kompa’ 9 is a charming café located in the hustle and bustle of Copenhagen’s shopping district. Their fairtrade coffee is just as good as their rye sandwiches, they say. 😉

Købmagergade 52A

Rundetaarn was built in 1642 and is a famous attraction in Copenhagen. Despite the abundance of tourists there, Hagel likes to take the spiral walk up in the beautiful building to enjoy the great view of the city from above. We might just do that, too!

Frederiksborggade 21

The market hall Torvehallerne is high up on our list, here you will find many stalls selling everything from fresh produce to amazing tacos and Danish pastries. Hagel recommends going in the morning for porridge by Copenhagen darlings GRØD, in the afternoon for coffee from well-known spot Coffee Collective or early in the evening for dinner with friends and a glass of wine to end the day…

Botanical Garden
Øster Farimagsgade 2B

Copenhagen is already a green city and with the Botanical Garden at its center, the green oasis is another perfect place to take a break and go for a walk. Hagel recommends visiting the greenhouses, which feature stunning architecture.

Café Auto
Griffenfeldsgade 22

Café Auto is a neighborhood favorite which can get a bit crowded at lunch time. Their menu features classic and hearty items such as Croque Madame and Chèvre Chaud and there’s also a special brunch menu on the weekend. It’s a cozy place to spend a leisurely Sunday afternoon.

I can´t wait! I´ll make sure to take lots of pictures! And I´m “praying” for good weather! 😉

  1. Yay! So nice you’re coming! I definitely second Rundetaarn and Torvehallerne, two of my favorite places. Let me know if you want to grab a coffee or a drink! 🙂
