Your Guide to Urban Copenhagen

Experience Copenhagen's laid back atmosphere and edgier side. The past couple of years have seen a rise in trendy new cafés, street food markets and underground festivals as well as several new and restored hotels and urban hostels. No matter the size of your budget, you will find that Copenhagen packs a punch.

Make sure to visit the Vesterbro and Nørrebro areas, both of which boast open spaced hangouts, cafés, and great little shops.

Copenhageners are known worldwide for their effortless sleek style, and no visit to the Danish capital will be complete without indulging in a shopping spree. Go for the latest high street trends or explore vintage boutiques hiding in narrow cobbled streets.

Year round, Copenhagen plays host to several festivals. Join the locals for Denmark's biggest street party "Distortion" or venture outside the city for mad days at the Roskilde Festival.  

Travel tip #1: Colourful Nyhavn

"That first night I walked to Nyhavn and sat looking at the water with a glass of wine, the midsummer sky keeping the city illuminated." Brenna Holeman, thisbatteredsuitcase.com

Travel tip #2: The bicycles!

"Bicycles throng the streets, whether briefly parked or being boarded by countless legs swinging over saddles. Everywhere you look are Scandinavian beauties nonchalantly pedaling their way around" Flora Baker, floratheexplorer.com
