I will continually update this guide to the places I’ve been as I am exploring
Places To Go
Round Tower – Amazing views of the city in this famous landmark of Copenhagen. A small entrance fee also includes entrance to a visiting museum exhibition.
Royal Botanical Gardens – Many different greenhouses and gardens all for free in the heart of the city.
Royal Library – Known as “The Black Diamond”, great place to do work, definitely not your typical school library even though eduroam wifi works
Danish Parliament – The architecture is beautiful even if it is the fifth version.
Christiansborg Slotsplads – Check out where Queen Margarethe II lives! At noon you can check out the changing out the guard.
Nyhavn – The google images picture of Copenhagen. A beautiful canal with docked boats, colorful houses, and cobble stone streets. Definitely a huge tourist attraction.
Christiana – Copenhagen’s “freetown” est. 1971 by a group of hippies who occupied abandoned military barracks and developed their own set of society rules, independent of the government.
Louisiana Art Museum of Modern Art – The building and greenery are pieces of art, never mind the great exhibits. I especially liked the light room!
Den Blå Planet – Copenhagen’s aquarium is huge! Fun day trip for those living here.
Places to Eat
Paper Island – lots of great street/international food with a harbor front view
Glass Market – local food vendors with a wide variety from fresh vegetables to gelato.
The Donut Shop – need I say more? Delicious and dangerously close to DIS
Mother – great pizza in the meatpacking district
Sankt Peters Bageri – Get a cinnamon roll on Wednesday. It’s a must.
Next Door Cafe – Pancakes, Hot Chocolate, and a Student Discount 🙂
Wulff & Konstali – Best brunch I’ve ever had
