We finally landed in our dream city Copenhagen as our final stop in Scandinavian trip.
We heard lots of praise on this city: how nice the people are and how lovely the life is. Now that we have been here, we could confirm that every little rumor about Copenhagen you catch in the street, it is correct. The hometown of Little Mermaid and Nordic design quickly become our favorite city in the European continent.
Without further ado, welcome to the capital of design and quality life!
Copenhagen is full of restaurants of sunshine and good vibe and boutique coffee shops. Maybe that's why we love the city so much, under hyper caffeinated condition through coffee hopping.
Illums Bolighus is the premier department store for Danish design. You'd want to take home everything here: furniture, lamps, kitchen and bathroom articles, ceramics, porcelain, silver, and glassware.
Everything here would be an allure and rare find in NYC. Danish probably don't realize how spoiled they are, with easy access to all these great designs.
Smørrebrød + Sushi = Smushi, Copenhagen's creation of open top sandwich.
Hidden in a quiet alley by Illums Bolighus, the Royal Smushi Café (right and below) is Michelin-recommended and famous for its new take on the old Danish staple: smørrebrød, or “butter bread.”
With a plate from iconic china maker Royal Copenhagen and silverware from luxury Danish brand Georg Jensen, it is an dining experience of the Danish delicacy.
We climbed up the Round Tower for a panorama view of Copenhagen. It serves as an observation tower, a public astronomical observatory and a historical monument.
One extra function for us: its equestrian staircase, a 7.5-turn helical corridor leading to the top is a perfect scene for Instagram photos.
