In our Copenhagen Guide we will show you the best places to eat a RAWBITE and how to spend your time inside and outside in the capital of Denmark. Get ready for your weekend trip in Copenhagen!
What to see and to do in Copenhagen?
This palace is where one of the oldest monarchies, the Danish royal family, resides in central Copenhagen until today.
The outside square is not only worth seeing for the scenery, but from here you can actually watch the changing of the guards every two hours.
Nyhavn was originally a busy commercial port. Today it is a center of attraction, where you can enjoy the canal, a great scenery for drinks and a relaxed atmosphere. The colorful houses provide not only cute restaurants but also the oldest tattoo shop in the world that is still functioning. You can find it in the yellow house Nyhavn 17.
Right at Nyhavn you can join two Canal Tours. In 1 to 1.5 hours, they take you around the city and provide information about different sights.
Tip: Some boats have roofs, which means you can take the tour during rainy days.
Secret Tip: You can use the Green Kayak for free if you are collecting trash during the time of use.
Royal Library Garden
This little green oasis in the center of Copenhagen is characterized by flower beds and big trees – perfect for a little break. From here you can see the highest tower in the city, Christiansborg Tower.
The Christansborg Tower provides a stunning view over Copenhagen. Before moving to Amalienborg Palace in the late 1800s the Royal Family was living here. Today, this is the house of parliament - “Folketinget” in danish.
Fun Fact: With its 106 meters the tower is only 40cm higher than the city hall tower.
Tip: You can enjoy the view with free entrance! Perfect if you are traveling on a budget.
The Black Diamond
“Det Kgl. Bibliotek” offers more than a pretty library with a stunning view of the harbor. It can hold exhibitions and concerts; you can use the reading rooms or enjoy a drink in the café by the water.
2,500 m² absolute Black granite in the front and the special shape cause the buildings name “The Black Diamond”.
Ever skied in a capital city on top of an incineration plant? No? Well, CopenHill makes it possible. No worries, if you are not a ski fan – CopenHill also offers other outdoor activities and a rooftop café with a great view.
Islands Brygge is an area directly at Copenhagen’s waterfront. Especially during hot summer days, it is a hotspot in the city. Take a swim in the harbor bath, have a picnic on the gras, play canoe basketball or rent a GoBoat to take a drive through the canals.
In the early 17th century, the Scandinavian King Christian IV build the Rosenborg Castle. Take a tour through the castle and see the king’s interior or wax figures of former royal inhabitants.
Tip: If you don’t want to visit the Castle from the inside, we recommend just walking through the beautiful park around it. Also, a nice spot for a picnic.
Are you ready for some fun? Tivoli is an amusement park for young and old - directly at the central station. It is more than 175 years old and offers different rollercoasters, plenty of food options and special events as entertainment program.
Should I visit Tivoli even though I am not a fan of rollercoasters, you ask? Absolutely! With different ticket options, it is also possible to visit the park and not go on rides.
Fun Fact: Walt Disney is supposed to have found his inspiration for his own Disney World during a visit at Tivoli Gardens.
Tip: Especially around Halloween and Christmas the whole park is filled with amazing decorations, making it worth a visit.
A beach directly next to the city? Yes, you heard correctly! On Amager you can find a lovely sand beach right at the ocean. With clear sight you can even see the Øresund Bridge that takes you right to Sweden!
Definitely worth a visit, if you need a deep breath and a break from the city.
Tip: If you have some extra time, try to take a class at the Copenhagen Surf School!
Marmorkirken (Marbel Church)
The Marbel Church is a true eyesight in the city. The building with a cupper green roof is open for public every day. For a majestic view we recommend walking towards the waterfront and turn around as soon as you passed the fountain.
Fun Fact: King Frederik V. started building the Marbel Church in 1749, however, the church could only be inaugurated in 1894.
Where to eat in Copenhagen?
(Vegan) Restaurants and Cafes in the City
The vegan Restaurant Urten is located in the small streets of “Latinerkvartet”. In a cosy atmosphere you can enjoy 100% plant-based menus with either two or three courses. The lovely decorated courses go very well with the offered wine menu, which is individually created for the monthly changing menus.
Tip: Downstairs you can find the associated Atlas Bar that offers vegan dishes in a lower budget.
Reffen is the place to be if you are looking for some chill vibes at the water and a variety of food. With food booths from different countries, it offers a lot of choices, that makes sure everyone will have a tasty experience. While eating, drinking, and chatting you can watch the sunset or sit by the fire.
Be aware: Reffen closes from October until March.
Same but different - directly across Nyhavn you can find another food place. Similar to Reffen, yet a different experience.
Fun Fact: During the winter they transform the area to an ice rink. Rent some ice-skating shoes and enjoy the cold season!
Veve offers vegetarian cuisine based on the Michelin restaurant Kiin Kiin. In a stylish setting you can enjoy sophisticated gastronomy without meat - just like Online Growth Manager Mette: She loves the variety of food and the innovative kitchen. The menu is seasonal and changes regularly.
Next to the train and Metro Station Nørreport you can find two long halls including a variety of Restaurants and Cafes as well as places with fresh meat and fish. On warm days, a farmers market provides colorful fresh fruits and veggies in between the halls.
Orgasmic and organic – as the owners promise. At Seks you can find vegetarian courses, delicious coffee and refreshing drinks. Get excited about daily changing surprises on the menu and enjoy authentic and homemade food. The restaurant, which opened in early 2021, is definitely worth a visit.
If you are on the mission to find a fancy Pita, Garbanzo is the way to go. All we will say is delicious falafel in handmade bread combined with different kinds of veggies, pomegranate and dressing. If you are not a fan of Pita, they also offer Bowls.
Souls is the restaurant where you will find Community Manager Johanna while enjoying a delicious vegan brunch with a black coffee. Also, a great place to have some lunch in Copenhagen.
No matter if brunch or lunch, if smoothie or coffee – 42 raw is the right place for you if you are looking for conscious dishes with great ingredients.
Poke Bowls for everyone’s taste. With the concept of “Build your own poke bowl” you can mix your individual special bowl.
Some concept different place – Mix your own salad and enjoy a firework of different tastes.
Brand Manager Uta can’t get enough of the POPL Burger, a burger place from the world’s best restaurant Noma. Next to classic Burgers you can order vegetarian or even vegan Burgers. The vegan patty is made out of fermented Quinoa and tastes amazing.
New to the city but already Best Burger 2021 - Eden Jaxx is a completely vegan Burger Restaurant in Copenhagen. Recommendation: Loaded fries covered with vegan cheese, burger sauce, onion and vegan meat!
Grød translated means mash - and that's what it's all about. The options go from sweet porridge to risotto to daal made out of lentils.
Close to Nørreport in city center you can find this small little bakery with vegan treats. The menu changes occasionally.
Especially recommended for sunny days in summer: Nice Cream has options of vegan ice cream!
In the mood for good coffee with oat milk and a piece of cake? Cafe Kaf is 100% vegan and offers baked goods AND delicious breakfast options.
Juno the Bakery
In the lovely district Østerbro you can find the pretty known and very delicious bakery Juno. Special recommendation: Kardamomsnegl.
If there are no seats left in front of the building, ask for take away and stroll through the pretty streets in Østerbro or take a walk through the park Fælledparken that’s close by.
