It’s incredibly tight competition, but one of my favourite cities I’ve visited probably has to be Copenhagen. It feels like a city that sparkles all year round. In the summer it’s drinks along the water, bicycle baskets brimming with picnics and the kind of alfresco magic you read about in books.
In the colder months it’s orange leaves, steamy windowed coffee shops and scarves so tightly wrapped hair becomes a haystack, which on this occasion was why we were there in the first place; to celebrate the beautiful second Tartan Blanket Co. and Amy Bell collection (and where better to parade it around then this special Danish spot)…
With the collection having been such a success, it felt apt to celebrate somewhere equally as special; so Amy, Megan, Faye and I spent the weekend exploring the city- ticking off as many corners as possible, and if you’re me- desperately seeking Danish pastries too.
Although, for once it was quite a leisurely weekend (with the only real aim to be out of our Air BnB before it was too late for brunch), we did manage to pinpoint a few lovely spots, which I’ve listed below. This very much only scratched the surface of so many brilliant places; but sometimes it’s nice to just meander around a city aimlessly, soaking it up as it happens, and you stumble upon things- quickly glancing at Google maps to see what’s near.
Some of our favourite spots…
Atelier September / Andersen & Maillard
Hart Bageri / Grød
Mad & Kaffe / Mother
Esmée / Bottega Barlie
C’HO Fame (great for GF)
Tivoli / Louisiana Museum of Modern Art
Acne Archive / Ganni Outlet
Dora Homeware / Holly Golightly
Stilleben / Skall Studio
New Mags / Carmen Copenhagen
Magasin du Nord / Hay House
I also have this little guide from my first visit, and amazingly- a lot of the spots there seem to be still favourites and open! I can’t wait to add more to my list next time too…
