Guide: My Copenhagen #1

Now that I’ve been living in Copenhagen for a year, I think it’s time for me to reveal som of my favorite places in town, so here’s first part of my tips for CPH!

When living in Gothersgade in Indre By(central CPH) I had a few places in my street that I visited quite often. Two places I loved to go eat was firstly Barburrito for their taco lunch offer and PizzaHuset for their authentic Italian pizzas. On Gothersgade, you’ll also find the nicest little Japanese show, Boutique Taeko, with ceramics and other Japanese gift items.

In central CPH I also always swing by the cute little show, HAY Minimarket for stationary and Pentyl-Marker shopping. When it comes to clothes, my only really regular place is Veras Copenhagen, where I go for clothes swapping. On the other side of the street from Veras, there’s a great café called Kalaset with the most cosy atmosphere.

I’ve also spent tons of time looking at statues and art at Glyptoteket, which has free entrance on Tuesdays. For more nature-y walks, I spent a lot of time on Amagerfælled, when I lived in Islands Brygge. I also was a regular at the little and extremely authentic Italian café, Alimentari, which I think everyone should pay a visit!

Vesterbro is my least visited neighborhood in Copenhagen, but since my sister lives there and my fave spot in town is there, I do drop by once in a while. My favorite spot is a people’s house called Absalon, where I go to study, work, eat and play games – there’s room for everyone, ping pong every day and a good mood always!

Absalon, Sønder Boulevard 73


I also love taking walks with my sister on Vestre Kirkegaard, a cemetery thet’s quite park like, which is normal for most CPH cemeteries. In the summer I often drop by the huge flea market, Ritas Blå Lopper, and when you take a small break from flea market shopping, the extremely hip kiosk, Kihoskh, is the place to go. If you’re more into pizza, don’t hesitate to pay Itzi Pitzi a visit!
