Nordic Design – Copenhagen city guide

We asked a local: Meyer-Lavigne

What is your favourite thing about Copenhagen?
Copenhagen is a beautiful old city, filled with old houses, towers and squares. A summer night in Copenhagen is very magical, maybe because the winter period is so long and dark. We all love the light and every year the first spring light transforms the city to a giant wave of positive vibration. Beautiful girls on their bicycles in summer dresses, couples in love kissing along the canals and kids having fun in the open air swimming pools in the harbor.

Describe your perfect 24hrs in the city.
First of all, rent bikes. Morning coffee at the Coffee Collective in Jægersborggade. Explore the street, and buy some good bread at Meyers bakery also in Jægersborggade. Bike though the Assistens Cemetery where H.C. Andersen and Søren Kierkegaard are buried, go to Elmegade for nice clothes, bike along Vesterbro and explore the coolest part of the city. Lunch at Pate Pate. Take your bike with the harbor bus to sail to Christianshavn and take a tour on Christiania. here you can enjoy refreshments at the café Månefiskeren. There are free concerts sometimes in the afternoon, so check that out. Go back to Vesterbro via Islandsbrygge and Bryggebroen (the Brygge Bridge). Eat your dinner at Fiskebaren in the meatpacking district, go to the bar Mikkeller in Viktoriagade for some really good beer and finish the night at Vega Nightclub.
