Copenhagen // CPH in the Summer

I previously blogged about some amazing restaurants. Köd and Höst, and the Tivoli Gardens (in this post here).

Now, here is the rest of what I recommend you should do in Copenhagen!  The number 1 rule: rent bikes and ride them to explore the city! …. But, much like not walking slowly and stopping to read a map in New York City, in Copenhagen ride respectfully, never stop in the middle of the bike path and be aware that people are commuting from A to B by bike around you.

All my recommendations follow below, but as a summary we explored the main Copenhagen area, we visited Frederiksberg a nearby area where we studied at the Copenhagen Business School back in 2010, we just generally explored the canals and made our way over to the Black Diamond.

A few cool things we ran out of time to do (but we had done them before from when we lived in Copenhagen) which were:

  • Visit Christiania: a self-governed society which resides in a beautiful, art-filled borough which is contrastingly edgy and hippie.. and cannabis is widely available.  It’s a very interesting place worth experiencing, and the thai food cart near one of the bars there (don’t remember the names) was incredible!
  • Visit Amager Beach: a fake beach, easily accessible by the metro
  • Take a canal tour by boat: I love boats and this is a great way to see the city and get your tourist fix without bothering to do touristy stuff!
  • Visit Nørrebro: awesome area with great nightlife and restaurants (I remember Pussy Galore’s Flying Circus was an awesome restaurant back when I lived there… 5 years ago though…)
  • Eat at Tight, which was an old regular haunt of ours

We then were venturing over to the Black Diamond (a beautiful water-front Danish library) and stumbled across this cool bar underneath a bridge with great DJs so we decided to stop in for a few polite vodka sodas
