The Green Guide to: Denmark
With the world finally getting back to normal, we’ve got our passports at the ready. We’re constantly refreshing Google to find out where we can go and when. We can bet you are too, right?
Recently, Denmark entered the last phase of its reopening. With most EU countries and a fair few third countries now allowed to enter the Scandinavian dreamland without any restrictions, it’s high on our list for a summer trip.
Denmark might not be the most traditional summer holiday destination (we’re looking at you, South of France), but we’re lobbying for it to become your new vernal go-to. With nearly endless daylight, gorgeous landscapes and incredible food, you really can’t go wrong in this northern gem.
Hej, Danmark! We’re coming for you.
Where to stay?
If you’re staying in Copenhagen – and we definitely recommend you spend at least a few days here – there’s no better place to stay than Hotel Sanders. This chic, cosy hotel is the perfect jumping off point for exploring the city. If you’re looking for something a little more budget friendly, Hotel SP34 is dreamy and well-located.
Where to eat?
Ooof, Copenhagen. A serious foodie’s paradise. We don’t even know where to begin! Baest is a must for pizza, while Restaurant Sankt Annae is ideal for a traditional Danish lunch. Don’t miss the burgers at Gasoline Grill, the buns at Hart Bageri or the bites at Geranium. And, on your way out, snag a classic Danish hotdog at Steff’s Place in the aiport.
Where to drink?
We love Café Victor for a sunny afternoon Brandy Alexander or Palae Bar for a couple of Tuborgs with friends.
Where to shop?
Another area where the Danes excel is shopping. Whether you’re in the mood for interiors or looking for a whole new wardrobe, they’ve got you covered. Be sure to pop into Cinnober Bookshop for something to read on the plane home, Holly Golightly for serious vintage finds and Torvehallerne for delicious snacks to nibble on while you picnic. Oh! And let’s not forget a trip to Ganni for all things Scandi technicolour.
Where to go?
There are a million things to see and do in Copenhagen, but some of our favourites have to be a visit to the Rosenborg Castle, a dip at the Kastrup Sea Bath and an evening spent at the Copenhagen Opera House. If you’ve got the time, then you absolutely cannot miss the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, a trip to Jutland an afternoon at the Hans Christian Andersen Museum in Odense.
