Sophie and I decided to explore the capital of Denmark for a few days and we fell in love with Copenhagen. A city said to be the happiest in all of Europe and one instagramer suggested it might be due to their lovely avo toasts... There is much more to the Danes than that, they are on their bikes from young to old and most of the time traffic is managed with muscles and on two wheels. Everything is about Design, we saw great stores but wait until you read Sophie's Shortlist, more about what and where and how will be posted soon. We ate great food and roamed the city on rented bikes and on foot. Visited groovy cafes suggested by friends and instagramers like Nana Hagel, who met with Sophie, ate fabulous ice cream and laughed a lot, climbed all sorts of towers, shopped till we dropped and enjoyed the cool summer compared to blazing temperatures here in Vienna. We even had a spa treatment, that's what girls like to do and our room was always messy. Just what it takes to make a perfect holiday.
Way up in the north of Copenhagen is this peaceful Grundtvigs Kirke where we just sat and let the huge ceilings and stone columns calm our spirit. Such an amazing place, almost unreal.
The Round Tower is fun to visit and we had great views from the top. We all agree that this is a truly lovely city and we could live here anytime. people are really friendly and relaxed.
Colors are everywhere as you can see and Nyhavns line of houses made it to world fame. It is crowded with people, everyone is hanging out there.
A friend suggested to go to the Glyptothek which we absolutely loved, especially the exhibit of the sculptures of Edgar Degas!
One morning we took the train up north to visit Louisiana, a Museum for Modern Art, in a pretty colonial style house.
Helsingør two stops further is really worth a visit. It is all about Shakespeare's Hamlet. The view to Sweden is absolutely stunning. The castle dates back to the 1600s. We would love to hear of your trip this summer and if you have been able to visit Copenhagen before. Let us know what you did!
