I met my sister here last week for a weekend of celebrating birthdays, enjoying good food and exploring. This city had one of the largest choices of cuisine I have seen in a long time. So many amazing food markets, we loved Torvehallerne which was just around the corner from our hotel and Paper Island.
It snowed on my sister’s birthday which was pretty magical and we sludged our way to Kalaset which had the best burgers in the most hygge setting you could dream up. There are candles everywhere in Copenhagen, outside shop entrances, on café tables, in toilets, absolutely everywhere!
We explored the infamous Nyhavn and in the 4 days we were there, ended up at the harbour every day. This city is really compact and we walked everywhere apart from a £4 boat trip round Christiania, to the Little Mermaid statue and around the harbour.
The houses and architecture are pretty beautiful and there’s a real mix in such a small area and who doesn’t love a photo of a bike resting against a cute house?!
If you’re looking for a break to relax and enjoy good food in a cosy setting, this would be my top choice. There’s a reason this city often comes up as the best place to live.

Fun fact – Copenhagen means Merchants’ Harbour.
