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
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.
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.

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
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!
