Staying in Leipzig: Downtown Apartments Leipzig

When traveling to different cities we have experienced that renting an apartment can be a quite good alternativ to a normal hotel. Which is why there have been plopping up so many new renting concepts around various cities. About a week and a half ago, a friend and I took the chance and headed to Leipzig. All planed as a surprise for another friend who just finished her final university examination in order to become a dentist. We wanted to surprise her and come to her graduation ball without letting her know. A few weeks before we browsed through the internet and my friend spotted the apartments called Downton Apartments Leipzig. The pictures got us instantly and we made a reservation with Rebekka, the owner of the apartments. Our first call was easy-going and she already seemed to be a welcoming person. The day we arrived, Rebekka was there to welcome us and give us an exclusive insight to the apartment complex. It was so nice to meet her in person and get to know …

Outdoor in Munich: Eisbach

Before I knew anything else about what to see in Munich I had the Eisbach on top of my list. You probably think “Why is a little stream so interesting?” Well, since I’m a huge sport enthusiast I know about the Eisbach surfers and really wanted to see them live. Just past the bridge near the Haus der Kunst, the river forms a standing wave about 1 metre high. This makes the perfect surfing wave and therefore attracts quite a few of them. However it is also a really dangerous spot and only experienced surfers should take a ride here. We headed there directly on the first day we arrived since the weather was fantastic and there would actually be some surfers around to watch. When we got there the place was packed with people who also admired the guys on their boards. I could have stayed for ages and just watch them. Now I want to learn surfing even more desperately.

Breakfast in Munich: Cotidiano

I spotted this breakfast on various Instagram feeds and we therefore decided to try it out. Cotidiano (the one we went to) is located in the heart of Munich and was easy to reach by foot from our hotel. You can either come here for breakfast, lunch or dinner. We decided to go for a good breakfast. Their menu offers various dishes and I was instantly reminded of my time in New York. I choose their traditional Bircher Müsli which was absolutely delicious and had a Latte Macchiato to drink. My best friend went for a warm pretzel croissant filled with an goats cheese omelet and some greens. I tried a little of her dish and can also highly recommend it. The interior is warm and welcoming, you can easily sit here for one or two hours. When we came we had no problems getting a table (Saturday around 10am) but a little later the place was pretty crowded. During the week (Monday to Friday) they take table reservations, on the weekends you have to …

Breakfast in Munich: LAX Eatery

When I stepped into this little café in Munich I instantly felt like being back in New York again, enjoying a good brunch morning with Jana. Lax Eatery tries to convey the American west-coast feeling with palms and American road signs on the walls plus serving breakfast all day long. Also the food they serve seems really American inspired: fresh smoothies, blueberry pancakes, egg burritos and bread with smashed avocado. The menu is small but well organized and you easily find something. The place is small and on a Sunday morning pretty packed but we didn’t need to wait, one table was available straight away. My friend and I each went for the egg burritos and added extra avocado. As a sweet sensation we share the blueberry pancakes which were super fluffy. The coffee was good and their homemade ice tea really refreshing. All in all I can recommend this place. Maybe not for a big group of people (because of the space and their amount of big tables) but with a friend or alone …

Shopping in Copenhagen: HAY Design Store

As I already mentioned in previous posts Copenhagen is a Mecca for interior lovers. So is their HAY design store, located directly in the city center. In recent years HAY has created a row of modern design classics, like their famous chairs, the clever use of bold colors and exceptional design of everyday items like stationary, pencils and much more. I personally also love their classic rosé gold hangers, instantly upgrading your wardrobe. HAY design store Ostergade 61 Copenhagen, Denmark [show_shopthepost_widget id=”1741452″]

Dinner in Kopenhagen: Streetfood

Our hottest tip for Kopenhagen and one of the coolest places I know: the street food market on Paper island. When the weather is sunny, you can sit outside nearby the water, a DJ is playing cool tunes and there is the most delicious food and drinks inside. You’ll find food stands from all over the world, my favorite was the brioche pulled pork burger (soaking but so delicious!) and of course the cheesecake stand (strawberry!!!). You’ll get there taking the “water bus” in two minutes. [show_shopthepost_widget id=”1666907″]

Food in Copenhagen: Torvehallerne

When in Kopenhagen you should definitely visit the Torvehallerne, a high end food market that offers many different food stands of either already prepared food or luxurious groceries. There is a small patio between the two market halls, that also hosts food and drinking stands as well as a small farmer’s market and colorful flower stands. Torvehallerne Frederiksborggade 21 1360 København K Denmark [show_shopthepost_widget id=”1649811″]

Culture in Copenhagen: Rosenborg Castle

Another must-see in Copenhagen is the Rosenborg. It’s a beautiful Dutch Renaissance style castle, that has a small base but was build high, reaching in the sky. It was used by Danish regents as a royal residence until 1710. Inside, you can visit the original rooms with baroque furniture transporting you back in time. Outside you can enjoy the country’s oldest royal garden. Rosenborg Castle Øster Voldgade 4 1350 København [show_shopthepost_widget id=”1634607″]

Kopenhagen Photo Diary I

 Last weekend I was lucky enough to visit Kopenhagen with my boyfriend. At first, honestly, I was expecting a rather small and calm city. However, my expectations were exceeded completely! Kopenhagen is a beautiful, interesting, design affiliate, artful, easy-going city with a high quality of life. We actually managed to walk through the whole city in one weekend, our favorite districts definitely being the area near Nyhavn and the city centre. We can highly recommend to visit Rosenborg and Amalienborg, take a boat tour starting at Nyhavn, visit the Rundetaarn and just stroll through all the beautiful narrow streets. I also loved that there are so many interior design and lightning shops! [show_shopthepost_widget id=”1647563″]
