What Should I Do In Copenhagen?

Sharing is caring!


I am going on a bit of a crazy trip over the Christmas holiday. First I am going to visit my parents in Maine for five days. Then I go to London to spend time with my husband’s family for three days. Then Charles and I are going to Copenhagen for four days. Finally it is back to London for a couple more days. It is too much to be doing in a short span of time, but in case you haven’t noticed, that is kinda how I live my life.

Neither of us have been to Copenhagen before, and I am very excited. The photos are gorgeous, and I am looking forward to exploring a place that is totally new to me. Obviously we know that it will be quite cold, but we do live in Chicago so I think we can handle it. I have this idea that Copenhagen will be filled with cozy little cafes where we can sip cocoa by the sea.

Have you been to Copenhagen? I would love suggestions. I know that Noma is in Copenhagen, but I am not so sure about spending $1000 on dinner. Please let me know what you think I should see, do, and eat. We will be there for New Years, is there something fun we should be planning? Feel free to leave suggestions in the comments, or email me at

You can expect some fun travel posts in the new year.

Thank you so much for these recommendations! I really want to go to Sweden and my husband is really against it. He says Americans try to see too much when they travel to Europe (he's British). I am determined to trick him into going!

I wish I could give you specific tips! But I can report that Copenhagen was the first city I ever visited outside the US when I was young. (, we're talking YEARS ago) And I remember it being exciting & magical & that the people were as kind as they were physically beautiful. Can't wait to live vicariously through you when you take your trip!
