It is hard to resist the Nordic charm and sophistication of the streets of Copenhagen. In fact, the capital of Denmark is a great destination for a short city break - museums, fashion stores, parks, fine dining, and super stylish hotels. Summer is the best time to visit Copenhagen and experience the famous Danish concept of coziness hygge.
Just like Amsterdam, Copenhagen is one of the best cities in the world for biking, so if you want to see as much as possible, I suggest to bike through one of the most spectacular routes Cykelslangen. Otherwise, you can walk in a hip Norrebro district full of fashion, ceramics, furniture stores, and cool coffee shops. The area has minimalistic interiors relaxed atmosphere, and it is just a pleasant feeling to be here.
I also suggest visiting Copenhagen's most attractive garden and the world's second-oldest amusement park Tivoli. During the summer, this place is glowing with sparkling lamps, blooming with flowers, and has the best rollercoasters in the country. Those not into rollercoasters and the Ferris wheel might be interested in the Tivoli Wednesdays Jazz program.
The peaceful vibe and hygge concept feel everywhere, also in hotels. Hotel Skt. Annæ is one of the remarkable boutique hotels with cozy feels and conceptual Danish design. The inspiration for the room's interiors was the calm earthy color pallet of famous Danish painter Vilhelm Hammershoi, created by Space Copenhagen Design Studio.
Another great boutique hotel is Hotel Sanders, located in a 19th-century townhouse. The main highlight of this hotel is the roof terrace, decorated with Moroccan lanterns and stuffed with rattan furniture and woven rugs.
As a bonus, another hotel to mention is well-known on Instagram, Manon Les Suites Guldsmeden. It became so popular due to its unique indoor pool, lined with sun beds and surrounded by greenery and Palm trees like a tropical paradise in the middle of the city. Due to its lovely Balinese furniture and exotic vibe, it is challenging to call Manon Les Suites a classic Danish hotel. However, the owner, Guldsmeden, is behind some of Copenhagen's more characterful and traditional small hotels, including the most recently opened Bryggen Guldsmeden.
