After a work trip to Cologne, my friend and I stayed an extra couple of days in Europe and went to Copenhagen. We stayed at an Airbnb in Christianshavn and it was a great location to walk to everything. It turns out that that part of Copenhagen was designed by the same person who designed the canals in Amsterdam so it had a lot of the feel of Amsterdam.
We started off the trip with a walking tour by Sandeman, it was really informative and a great way to get a sense of the city. After the tour finished, we just spent the rest of the day wandering around and exploring the city.
For dinner that night, we went to Union Kitchen and it was delicious! I highly recommend it if you’re ever in Copenhagen.
Our last day in Copenhagen, we started the day with breakfast at Granola and then went on a tour of the Carlsberg brewery. I don’t love beer but the tour was really interesting and gave a lot of the history of Carlsberg plus it came with some free beer!
That night, we checked out Copenhagen Street Food which alone is worth the trip to Copenhagen. It’s a warehouse full of food vendors, bars and a DJ. There’s a fire outside with blankets to sit under and you can just get some delicious food and relax.
I wish I had been able to run in Copenhagen because it has some great running routes especially along the river. I found this info about where to run in Copenhagen before I knew that I wouldn’t be able to run and it has great suggestions! I hope that I’ll be back one day and be able to explore it by running.
How do you find running routes in new cities?
