Where to eat:
Granola - This restaurant is located on Værnedamsvej which is like the busiest and trendiest shopping street in the Vesterbro neighborhood. This place has a very 50s dinner vibe and is clearly something of a local favorite as it was packed with Danes, families, couples, and groups of friends all enjoying their very traditional Danish dishes. I had the chicken salad with mushrooms, pickled cucumbers, and smoked bacon on rye bread.
Copenhagen Street Food Market - Never fail to locate a city's food markets. This one is located on Papirøen (Paper Island) and features a plethora of mixed cuisine classic street food dishes. It has a cozy atmosphere, with fire places you can sit in front of with friends while enjoying your meal. It also has outside seating areas that overlook the Copenhagen city sky line -beautiful!
Mirabelle's - Totally obsessed with this bakery located in Norrebro. With a very stylish yet simple Scandinavian interior, Mirabelle's is one of the up and coming sourdough bakeries of Copenhagen. We thoroughly enjoyed their fresh pressed apple juice (so good!!) and their danish breakfast (pictured above).
What to see:
Vesterbro - Neighborhood in the city that, of course, attracts the cities hipsters for its trendy boutique's, flower shops, cafes, and attractive architecture. We wandered around this neighborhood, discovering shops and getting a bite to eat.
Norrebro - Another trendy neighborhood that sits above Vesterbro and is across from the Copenhagen botanic gardens and the National Gallery of Denmark. Reminded me a lot of Williamsburg (maybe a few years back).
Botanic Gardens - The botanical gardens of Copenhagen's University are gorgeous, as is the surrounding park, especially if it is a nice day (which it fortunately was when we visited).
Christiania - Weirdest place I have ever been. Worth the visit.
