Copenhagen City Guide

Nyhavn Copenhagen


We stayed in this great Airbnb apartment in Amagerbro, just south of Christianshavn. (New to Airbnb? Use this referral code when you sign up and you and I will both get a $25 credit. Yay, savings!) Amagerbro was well-connected to the city by buses and the metro but for a short trip we’d recommend staying a little closer to the city center. Indre By would be a nice spot.


  • The inspiration for Disneyland, Tivoli is a charming, smaller, and more accessible theme park. Go at night to see the lights and (sometimes) fireworks.
  • Take an hour-long canal tour. Copenhagen is a great city to explore from the water, and if you don’t have a lot of time it’s a good way to cover a lot of territory.
  • Visit the Louisiana Museum for its small but impressive art collection and its beautiful sculpture garden, grounds, and coastal views.


  • Kompa 9 Café: Breakfast, sandwiches, coffee, and tea with Instagram-worthy décor. Everything we had here was fresh and delicious.
  • Foodie: Get the impressively large and tasty lamb sandwich. 


  • Mikkeller Bar: Known internationally, the Mikkeller brewery is based in Copenhagen. They have a large range of beers on taps – a style to suit everyone!
