Copenhagen, Denmark

Denmark has the world’s oldest monarchy. In fact, their current reigning Queen Margrethe II lives with her son Prince Fredrick, his wife and their three children. The most interesting part of traveling to Copenhagen is that you get to see their palaces as  even today, some parts of it is open to the general public. You can see how royally they live and yet how humble they are to the people of Denmark. I must say, Danish people really love the Royal family.

We visited Copenhagen in the first week of June for good five days, which I feel is a pretty decent time to see the whole city. Denmark is one of the most popular Scandinavian countries. During summer, the days are long and nights are short as you might have read in world geography. Danish people are very humble and warm, they don’t like to fight, argue, they are just happy people.

Attractions: The little mermaid (statue), Rosenborg castle and gardens, Christianborg castle, Rundetarn (Tower for views), Amalienborg castle, Opera House, Fredrick’s church/Marble church, Fredrickborg castle, Church Of Our Savior Copenhagen, National Museum and Nyhavn (harbor) boat ride for canal tour, Tivoli Gardens (first ever theme park of the world, where Walt Disney got his inspiration for Disneyland) and, Botanical Garden. Christania  is an interesting neighborhood. Stroget, one of the oldest streets and known for all the high end shopping in Copenhagen. Torvehallerne known for city’s trendy marketplace and food stalls.

Copenhagen is recognized for it’s amazing food and Michelin starred restaurants. Food is an absolute pleasure here, I and my husband tried most of the Michelin starred restaurants. I highly think Danish people excelled in this category. My special recommendations here would be Noma, the world’s best restaurant four times. Try reserving it at least six months prior to visiting Copenhagen and if you can get it, be ready to spend $400-$500 per person.

Must try other Michelin stars: Geist, U Formel, Formel B, Rebel, and Musling.

You may have heard this from me many times but honestly, I love Copenhagen. I had the most amazing time learning about Danish history, enjoying fabulous food and meeting such warm & happy people. I highly recommend you to visit Denmark and like me, I am sure you will also fell in love with it.

Shoot me all your questions, I will be super happy to answer.

Thanks for reading and have a fabulous week.
