It’s been quite a while since travelling to Copenhagen, but I’ve finally been able to compile my photos down to create this photo diary. My Mum and I managed to cram so much into our long weekend in the capital of Denmark! From lots of shopping, eating and sightseeing…
One of my favourite things we did was the Canal tour. Getting to see so many popular sights as well as normal streets and living areas of Copenhagen that surround the canals, truly incredible. We also managed to pop over to Sweden for half a day which is another place I want to go to in the future.
I must admit I am very much a sit by the pool and get a suntan holiday goer, but this drastic change in pace was so nice, and something that I’ve always wanted to do. I can’t wait to explore other cities in the future. On my list of cities to go to are Paris, Barcelona, Stockholm, Prague & Madrid, just to name a few.
Our favourite place was by far was TorvehallerneKBH market, inside 2 giant structures just off Frederiksborggade one of the main streets leading into the centre of Copenhagen and about a 5 minute walk from our hotel. We stopped off at Laura’s Bakery every morning for our breakfast which consisted of a chocolate dipped chocolate filled croissant for me, and a chocolate cinnamon bun for Mum. We also indulged in the most mouth-watering brownie EVER! We even brought one home with us! The market has the most eclectic purpose-built stalls, my favourite being those with plants or flowers.
I’d highly recommend taking the windy walk up The Round Tower, there are handy stopping points on the way up so you don’t have to do a route march to the top! When you do reach the top you get the most stunning 360 views of Copenhagen and you can even see Tivoli in the slight distance.
Of course the shopping was fantastic, I was in my element when it came to browsing through Sephora and picked up some really nice jewellery from & Other Stories. We found the CUTEST shop called Notre Dame which is any interior/decor lovers dream! I literally wanted EVERYTHING. It was all so Scandi!!
Have you ever visited Copenhagen? What did you do on your trip that you could recommend? I hope this photo diary has inspired you into looking at new places to travel and explore.
I can’t wait for this year and which City I might visit next.
