Weekend Itinerary in Copenhagen

Copenhagen 2019 was a last minute weekend trip planned in an attempt to go somewhere European before Brexit happened. It turned out that the Brexit deadline was extended again and I needn’t bother rushing, but there you go. Our flights costed £88 per person including returns via Scandinavian Airlines and we flew from London Heathrow airport to Copenhagen Kastrup Airport. […]

Review: Aamans Establishment, Copenhagen

I wanted to try traditional Danish cuisine and after much research opted for lunch at Aamans Establishment on a Sunday afternoon. Aamans is a Michelin recommended chain famous for its smørrebrød or open-faced sandwich and has a very reasonably priced lunch special () along with a classic schnapps menu. We didn’t go to the main Aamans branch in the city […]

Review: Designmuseum Danmark, Copenhagen

Copenhagen’s Design museum celebrates the history of Danish and international design in an elaborate rococo building. Here’s my review of a visit I paid on Sunday 6th October 2019. Exterior Our visit was brief since we’d taken a later than planned Copenhagen canal tour and had a lunch booking at Aamaan’s establishment at 12:30 that day; we pretty much ran […]

Review: Canal Tour’s The Grand Tour, Copenhagen

By happy coincidence I’d already planned to tour with this company but hadn’t booked the tickets in advance, so this discount was much appreciated and another reason to join the excellent Copenhagen Free Walking Tour.

Quick Review: Union Kitchen, Copenhagen

Despite the early hour most of the seats were already booked or taken when we arrived. We managed to grab a seat by the very stylish bar. The whole restaurant was very chic with carefully designed lighting to segregate different […]

Quick Review: Paludan Bogcafe, Copenhagen

Paludan Bogcafe was a frequently mentioned restaurant when I searched online for a cosy and affordable meal in Copenhagen. A favourite with students, this price conscious establishment was located within a ten minute walk from our Airbnb when we visited one Saturday evening. It was very busy when we went inside, but we easily found a seat near the back. […]

Review: Round Tower, Copenhagen

The Round Tower was extremely busy during our visit in the late afternoon and I chose it to be our last stop since it had the latest opening hours.  The 17th century tower and observatory Rundetaarn, or the Round Tower, is the oldest functioning observatory in Europe. It was inspired by the astronomer Tycho Brahe, commissioned by Christian IV and […]

Review: Rosenborg Castle, Copenhagen

When we visited Rosenborg Castle on a late Saturday afternoon we only had an hour before the place closed, so be aware that this post will be word light and photo heavy due to the lack of time spent on the visit. Introduction Rosenborg Castle is a lavishly decorated building in the Dutch Renaissance style and originally commissioned by Christian […]
