CPH Guide

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
