It is always a good idea to get a Nordic-style coffee and almond croissant in the morning. Then ride over to Torvehallerne to get the fresh produce, you will also find specialty shops, and small restaurants. Do not forget to visit chef Rosio Sanchez’s namesake taco stand, Hija de Sanchez, for tortillas topped with chicken mole. Also, do not miss out on Noma, its specialty is René Redzepi’s local ingredient-driven tasting menu.

Established in the Tivoli gardens, the Nimb hotel is all you need to visit. It is a dream come true for every Instagrammer out there. Head to Frederik Bille Brahe’s Atelier September for a healthy breakfast of granola and zucchini jam, and rye bread avocado toast. Spend some moments in the nearby streets dotted with hip boutiques such as Scandinavian furniture shop Hay House, and homeware shop Illums Bolighus. Then, head to Arken Museum of Modern Art for exhibits devoted to the artists all over the world.
- For the zen traveler
Head to Streetyoga in the Nørrebro neighborhood. Then bike to Chef Christian Puglisi’s Mirabelle for the city’s most incredible chewy sourdough bread toast. After the breakfast, head to Arndal Spa and enjoy a massage, facial, and dip in the serene pool. Put an end to the day by having a glass of natural wine at Baest. And do not forget to have wood-fired pizzas made from local and Italian grains.
