Our top picks of where to eat and what do in Copenhagen

What to eat in Copenhagen
Copenhagen is overflowing with great eateries and restaurants and you can find endless lists online of must eats. The following recommendations are completely biased and based on where we have had the greatest experiences and therefore think you will as well, not what are the most hyped and overrated places just now. Therefore the list is limited to only top picks, but feel free to ask us directly about other restaurants and recommendations. Prices range from high to low.
Owned and run by a former Noma chef (yep we are talking about the former best restaurant in the world Noma) this super hyped bakery opened up last year with a mission of creating the best freshly baked fare in the world, and they are honestly pretty close, but it does come with a hefty price tag. We recommend at least trying it out once, and it’s really close to this place 

Not actually a breakfast place, unless chocolate truffles and ice cream are your breakfast go-to’s, this chocolatery and ice cream parlor offers the best homemade ice cream in Denmark – no joke, first day of summer the line can be almost 1 km long. Make sure to get the chocolate dipped cone and remember that you can get tasters of the ice cream before choosing. The place is just across the street, so no excuse not to go.

Widely acclaimed as one of the best smørrebrød around (danish open faced sandwiches), Adam Aaman creates modern takes on Danish classics and is probably one of the best introductions you can have to Danish cuisine. There a several outlets to choose between, ranging from take-away to fancy-smancy.

The city is abundant with gourmet burger outlets, some even appearing on best burger in the world lists, but this is my top pick when the burger craving hits. Everything is fresh, homemade and perfectly cooked and the selection of greasy beef gourmet burgers or their healthier vegetarian cousins and sides including avocado fries, onion rings and béarnaise dip will cater to everyone’s needs.

Madklubben (the Food club) is a concept casual dining restaurant with a selection of different themed restaurants throughout the city. Their main philosophy is that good food should not be overcomplicated and more importantly, it should be affordable. They have a changing menu with a selection of around five starters, mains and desserts and you can have a three course menu for 225 kr.

A cult Danish restaurant owned by a young hipster chef who pays tribute to traditional brown bodegas (oldschool Danish dive bars) and Danish staple dishes just as grandma made them – if she could cook that is. I would recommend to go as a fun way to explore Danish culture and some classic but well-made Danish dishes – do note that the atmosphere can become quite festive as copious amounts of alcohol flows

Another brand new three-storey outlet riding the ever growing street food popularity wave is in the city center, close to Kgs. Nytorv and Nyhavn and probably the best option for a cheap bite if you find yourself in that area. They have a really nice outdoor courtyard and also indoor seating for the rainy days.

Initially envisioned as the city’s uniting street food market, these two large market halls quickly became known for their upscale and sometimes exorbitantly priced produce. The place does still have its merits though and you are sure to find cheapish quick bites. If you are willing to fork out, the produce, deli and gourmet sections are of exceptional quality. Drop by the Hija De Sanchez stall (authentic Mexican) which is run by a former Noma chef – the place won an award as the best street food outlet in the world. I’m not sure I agree, but it still is pretty good

Opened up last year on the shore of Refshaleøen, this outdoor street food and craft market has a super funky vibe and attracts people of all ages. The location is the main problem, since it’s in a poorly connected part of the city, but you are in luck since bus 9A, which stops on Gammel Kongevej, is one of the few busses going directly there.

Located in the trendy meat packing district this fusion kitchen succeeds in navigating world cuisine from homemade Italian pasta to marsala bao which is a real feat. They offer a 10-course tasting menu and are happy to accommodate any allergies & dislikes. Cocktails are beautifully made and their wine cellar stocked with natural wines. In summer they also have outdoor seating. Honestly one of our favorite spots.

Recently opened and several times nominated as best new restaurant in town, this intimate and exquisitely designed establishment is run by a young prodigy female chef and is little sister restaurant of the Michelin awarded Kadeu. The cuisine is New Nordic with a Japanese twist and every dish is as delicious and packed with flavor as it is strikingly beautiful – also the service is impeccable.

Another sister restaurant, this time of Michelin venue Formel B, they serve courses of carefully executed New Nordic meets French high cuisine and the result is always oh so satisfying and generally safe, but with a couple of surprises to tantalize and tease. Go for a romantic night or perfect meal, but not to be challenged.

If you dream of succulent and sizeable steaks with only the crème de la crème of trimmings, then look no further. Mash (Modern American Steak House) has firmly earned its place as the best steakhouse in Copenhagen for a reason. The demand has enabled them to open several outlets without compromising on quality. Be warned, it’s pricy, but so are most steak joints in this city, and at least you will be sure to honestly have had the best. We recommend going to the restaurant at the top of Tivoli Hotel for panoramic views of the city

Southern European cuisine coupled with an incredible wine list makes this restaurant and wine bar ever popular with the locals. The portions are large and well prepared, and each dish has its own unique twist. If you are a wine enthusiast they have an extensive wine menu by the glass.

A non-profit community space more than a restaurant, this venue offers more than 60+ events a week, including a daily communal set dinner where you will literally rub shoulders with Vesterbro locals, expats and visitors from far and wide at shared long tables. The cuisine here is about good, homemade and hearty food, with a heavy focus on vegetarian dishes several times a week – and from Monday-Thursday this will only set you back a measly 50 kr. – probably the best meals for the price in this city. On the weekends price goes up to 100 kr. but includes dessert. You can see the menu online where you also have to buy tickets in advance!

Craft beer, wine bars and duchy yet worth-the-visit haunts
Copenhagen has experienced a resurgence of the bar scene in recent years, where particularly craft beers led by Mikkeller have made it firmly onto the city’s drinking map. If beer is not your thing, the city still has a cornucopia of wine and cocktails bars to choose from, so not to worry. Our picks are mostly beer bars with a couple of wine bars thrown in, since they are our regular hangouts and because you will quickly discover that cocktails can be exorbitantly priced in this city. The last two suggestions are for the sake of novelty.
a hidden gem of a craft beer bar often outshone by its neighbor the meat packing district. This has been our favorite hangout for years due to the knowledgeable staff, outdoor beer garden, cosy interior and not least great representation of local and international breweries on their 20 taps – oh yeah prices are remarkably good for this city, with a pint normally setting you back 50 kr.

Speaking of the Meat Packing District, Warpigs is another Mikkeler joint and raw looking Gastro pub. The place is a must-see for real beer aficionados and they do serve up some beautiful brews. The place is pricier than Fermentoren, but you are able to get Authentic American BBQ fare with homemade BBQ sauces and the whole shebang. Mind you, even though the food is undoubtedly good, I personally think it’s way over-priced.

Denmark has a very relaxed drinking culture and it’s perfectly legal to enjoy alcoholic beverages in public spaces, which you will notice on any given summer day. Kihoskh caters to just that, being a convenience store / craft beer shop conveniently located next to a boulevard covered with grassy patches, which gets swamped with sun hungry locals quenching their thirst in Kihoskh’s extensive beer selection. Make sure to check out the impressive beer cellar downstairs, and if needing something to soak up all that ale, Itzi Pitzi Pizza next door cook up some mean pizzas.

A modern brewpub nicely nestled in the progressive suburb of Nørrebro and run by one of Denmark’s best breweries - To Øl. The space is large, light and inviting and besides having a splendid tap list, they also offer upscale and experimental dishes in their restaurant.

Only open during the summer months, this beer garden inspired courtyard is part of the urban concert venue Pumpehuset, which explains why you will be sure to find bands playing the outdoor stage most nights of the week. There is no entrance fee, the drink selection, albeit limited, is good and you get to experience exciting up-and-coming acts for free – what’s not to like! There is also a limited selection of great food by the next door Uformel available here.

They also offer some classic bistro dishes and the place gets packed all nights of the week. Make sure to take a stroll around the street and check out the gourmet and design shops.

If in search of good wine in central Cph, this is bound to be your best option. This Italian style wine bar is located on a side street to Nyhavn and the atmosphere is really cosy, particularly during the colder months where their sea of candles light up the winter darkness. They only have a human menu, so staff will recommend wines based on your personal preferences (without telling you the price unless asked). They are happy to serve by the glass and all orders always come with a complimentary tapas selection from the inviting showpiece buffet in the middle of the bar.

5-star luxury boutique hotel in the center of the city, famous for their much hyped rooftop jungle and pool area, in which their in-house Hi-Bar specialize in shaking up lavish cocktails. On Friday’s during the summer months they have a nightclubish concept. The place is impressive, but definitely made for Instagram and a crowd who wants to be seen.

What do in Copenhagen
As any other big city Copenhagen has a lot to offer in terms of sights and attractions, and you can find a lot of good recommendations online, particularly if you go to the official site https://www.visitdenmark.com/ - here you get relevant and updated tourist information not only about Copenhagen but entire Denmark. The following list is based on what we normally like to get up to around the city and the surrounding area.
Are two large and lush parks just at the end of Frederiksberg Allé and Vesterbrogade respectively. Frederiksberg Have is the more romantic and prim of the two, with fountains, a castle and view to the elephants living at the neighbouring Copenhagen Zoo. Søndermarken is slightly more wild and adventurous and a hit with runners. While staying here we think it’s a must to visit both parks, whether for a run or casual stroll and on warm days we highly recommend grabbing a picnic basket and a good book to relax for some hours on the vast lawns along with all the locals.

What used to be the city’s water reservoir has now been transformed into a contemporary underground exhibition space – with the darkness of the atmospheric tunnels lending itself perfectly to particularly light installations. Artists exhibiting change on a regular basis and the entrance is through the glass pyramid in the middle of Søndermarken.

Ethical considerations regarding the concept of Zoos aside, Copenhagen Zoo comes across as one of the more conscious institutions, particularly due to their focus on animal welfare and natural stimulation of the animals. This is evident when viewing the large spaces the animals have to roam in and natural behavior exhibited by them, which is why we think it’s worth a visit.

Copenhagen with its many channels and waterways undoubtedly call for some sort of sailing activity. Most people opt for a canal tour which is by no means a bad choice, but how about going on your own intimate canal cruise? Goboat rents out small motorized boats at very fair prices, and you don’t need any sort of previous sailing experience to steer them. The boats can accommodate maximum 8 people and are equipped with a big table perfect for lunch or drinks on the water. We recommend booking in advance.

Another great hangout in Refshaleøen, La Bachina features a café with decent food and drink selection, an excellent sauna and piers for taking a dip in the sea. I recommend showing up early if you want to try the (8-person) sauna, as it is very popular and operates on an informal first come, first served / one in, one out basis.

Tivoli theme park was created in 1846 and has managed to survive the changing times and remain ever popular with locals and visitors alike. With its beautiful gardens and fountains, classic architecture, candy and caramel scents flowing through the air and decent rides it’s worth experiencing - even though it might be a bit of a tourist magnet. Especially during the summer months it’s worth going on Fridays where they always stage free concerts with Danish but also international bands – line-up this year includes MØ and Jason Derulo. There is usually also a fireworks display at 23.45 on Saturdays.

or a more traditional experience we have to extend our warmest recommendations to the Danish Royal Theater and particularly the historical and palatial Old Stage located at Kgs. Nytorv. Performances include world-class ballet and opera and it’s a good idea to book tickets in advance.

You might already have heard about the (notorious) free city of Christiania in the center of Copenhagen and its turbulent history. If not, it’s basically a hippie commune with a pretty liberal attitude towards drugs which inevitably causes some friction with the local police. Generally the area is perfectly safe to visit and don’t let yourself be scared by the dogs running loose or the ill-concealed pot stalls and their dodgy-looking proprietors. Everything about Christiania and its quirkiness is in stark contrast to the rest of the orderly city, which is why it should be a must visit. There are also some quaint organic cafes and coffee shops as well concert venues which are another reason to go. Keep in mind that at nighttime it can become a bit dicey though, and that photography is not allowed on the main Pusher Street.

Most visitors know about the main shopping street Strøget in the city center, which is definitely worth a visit. But if you wish to avoid the crowds or if the weather is not for a lot of walking outside, then I recommend doing your obligatory holiday shopping in Frederiksberg Mall. The mall has won several design awards and has all the best Nordic Design shops, be it clothing or interior design and their large selection of stores caters to all price levels and needs.
