Denmark’s capital Copenhagen is probably one of my favourite cities in Europe. Excellent for interior design, shoes and clothing shops, vintage and second hand treasures, traditional Danish lunches and extraordinary Michelin restaurants.
Copenhagen is a very children friendly city too. You have places reserved on buses and trains for pushchairs, kids menus in restaurants, and reduced entrance at all museums, galleries and entertainments. Kids are indeed fully incorporated into the everyday life of the city, which makes Copenhagen a perfect city for visiting for families.
A must visit attraction is the Tivoli, website, a old style circus for both kids and their parents, offering both the fun of the fair, the peacefulness of a park and it has a nostalgic and classy feel to it. We’ll be taking the girls for the first time this summer and are very much looking forward to it!
What’s on of attractions and offers in Copenhagen, in addition to the super friendly locals:
Nyhavn is the perfect place to enjoy a stroll, a drink and a al fresco dining during the warm summer months.
Shopping in Copenhagen is no disappointment with an outstanding selection in both Scandinavian and international designers within fashion and design. As you probably guessed -I was looking for children’s clothes and design and found out to my luck that most shops still had a sale in February.
Copenhagen is exceptional in the way the city includes children in everyday city life in a very natural way, with nurseries, playgrounds and families to be seen everywhere including this bicycle carriage transport for little people.
A city with heritage yet contemporary and spectacular.
Fine dining on all corners so no reason to despair if you can’t manage to get a table at the worlds best restaurant, Noma. We visited Geranium, website a world class restaurant next to Noma. We also fell in love with a slightly less posh Restaurant Grønnegade website in 2001 and was happy to return 10 years later only to find out that the food and atmosphere is as good as always.
Copenhagen is a vibrant and modern city. Great for shopping, culture and dining. In other words a perfect destination for your next city break.
Little Scandinavian visited Copenhagen in February. Even for being a Scandinavian it was a rather chilly experience. We recommend going between May-September or for visiting the famous Copenhagen Christmas Market in December. Visit Copenhagen,
