Do you remember when we visited Copenhagen back in May? We stayed at the wonderful SP34 hotel. We had a great time but we didn’t get the chance of trying the award-winning burgers of the restaurant located in the hotel, Cock’s and Cows. Finally, a couple of weeks ago during our last holidays in Copenhagen, we had lunch in the first Cock’s and Cows that opened its doors in Copenhagen. Their success was so big that they have now opened two more branches in the city (one of them placed in the aforementioned SP34 hotel and the other one located in Osterbro district). We wanted to see where everything started, so one windy, cold Friday we took shelter in this cool restaurant and finally tried its burgers. Of course we took some pictures, if you’d like to see…
Even though we have visited Copenhagen several times we never had the chance to spend a joyful day at Tivoli Gardens, the amusement park that has been there to make every adult and child in Copenhagen happy since 1843. During a few hours we were amazed by a wonderful little world of fantasy hidden in the center of the city. Here you have a few pictures of our the afternoon when we felt like childs again…
We are back from Copenhagen, where we have spent the most amazing ten days. We’ve had wonderful walks by the water, we’ve discovered new corners, we’ve been inspired by the always beautiful Danish design and we’ve eaten fantastic food, for Copenhagen is home of some of our favourites restaurants. And this one in particular, Almanak, was one of the highlights of our trip.
Copenhagen is full of fantastic places to have breakfast. And God knows we love a good breakfast! This is our last discovery to spend a lazy morning with great food, gorgeous fellow foodies and cool background music.
This could be the best discovery we’ve made so far thanks to Instagram. Oddly enough, this popular and massively instagrammed cafe in Copenhagen offers no wi-fi. It represents to perfection that back to the roots trend that is steadily spreading across the most cosmopolitan cities in the world. Natural produce, minimal concepts and basic preparations. Of course, we wanted to give it a try.
You might be surprised to read this but that picture is not an avantgard painting. That is the most beautiful lobster tartare: look at that texture, those colours! Well, we think this picture represents Geist perfectly, our favourite restaurant in Copenhagen: Geist is surprising and innovative, full of personality and unexpected combinations.
Any visit to Copenhagen should be focus on design, excellent food and long walks or bike rides. The city has a smart casual code, is friendly yet sophisticated, open but walkable… it’s simply one of those places that makes you fall in love and think about how real life would be living there. But since travel is phantasizing, you should look for an accommodation that gives you that illusion, that makes you feel like a local in the know, that exudes the personality of the city where it’s located. Hotel SP34 provides that experience. It will make you believe that you are one of those young, tall, smart, total black outfit wearers, cool bike Danish riders.
We’re off to Copenhagen! Even though this time of the year we usually head to the beach, we are travelling to our beloved Copenhagen to improve our slow-paced guide.

We’ve been to Copenhagen a couple of times in the last couple of years. We’ve shared with you our favorite places to have brunch (one & two), where to find the best pizza or where to stay. And even though it’s quite a small city, Copenhagen has so much to offer that we can’t get enough of it. It’s stylish and welcoming, colourful and black and white, traditional and avantgard.We would love to come back and finally spend a day in Tivoli (we haven’t been there yet!), eat the most amazing vegetables in Geist, discover The Standard and walk under the warm Spring sun in Kogens Have. Last weekend we saw this film and we thought that Summer in Copenhagen has to be amazing, don’t you think? By the way, the film is pretty good. It showcases the city beautifully. We saw the film and immediately felt a Wanderlust attack. Now we just want to rent two bikes and get lost in Copenhagen! Does that happen to you too? Which films make you want to travel? In Bruges was definitely a clear “pack your bags and go” …
Copenhagen is one of our favorite places in the world. We love everything about it: the city is not too big but offers thousands of possibilities, almost everyone is friendly (and really good-looking), the architecture and design are outstanding and there is a fantastic food scene. We’ve decided to put together our list of recommendations in case you are thinking about visiting Copenhagen. These are just some of our favorite places and things to do for a laid-back, relaxing weekend. Don’t expect a full guide of monuments, transport tips or historical facts. But! If you want to spend a few days wandering around Copenhagen, eating great food, doing some shopping and enjoying life, then this might be of your interest.
