We spent a jam-packed four days in Copenhagen in February to celebrate Valentine's Day and my birthday, and while we could write a 2000 post on our whole time there, we though it's probably more digestible to give you a run down of our highlights...
Copenhagen Street Food Market for pulled pork and far too many beers // Watched the artists draw the market by the river // Got in a giant hamster wheel at the Experimentarium // Visited the flamingos at Copenhagen Zoo // Wandered around Vestboro // Beers and ribs at Warpigs in the Meatpacking District (check out our blog on it here) // Acted completely lawlessly in Freetown Christiania // Ate amazing seafood at Kødbyens Fiskebar // Had pastries at the Torvehallerne food market near Nørreport // Caught a glimpse of the bridge // Had the best ramen in the world at Ramen To Bíiru // Gazed in wonder at the aquarium // Cried on the plane home because we were so sad it was over.
We flew with Easyjet from Luton for £120 return for two.
We stayed at Hotel SP34, which we were mainly tempted to because it had a wine hour (free wine in the hotel lobby between 5-6pm every day) but actually turned out to be totally amazing all round. We booked through Amoma.com and paid £318 for 3 nights.
We also bought 72 hour Copenhagen Cards, which were £70 each – they covered travel, and entry to the major museums and attractions. It was definitely worth it, although we walked 20,000 steps a day!
