Summerbird Pure (Shop)

Copenhagen by Anders Arhøj

Great little chocolate shop that features sweets and cakes with a different take on chocolate. It's part of the Summerbird chain of small chocolate shops, but this one is the "Pure" shop and is dedicated to experiment with flavours and try out new recipes before they are launched in the whole chain. Every month the shop creates a new "flødebolle"(cream bun) based on the time of year and what's available from nature in a limited batch. I'm hooked and need to go there at least once a month.

Smag (Restaurant)

Copenhagen by Anders Arhøj

Super easy, healthy and affordable lunch and dinner takeaway. As a tourist in Copenhagen it is a nightmare to find affordable food. The popular downtown areas are flooded with crap food tourist traps and it's hard to navigate through the bullshit. Smag means "taste" in Danish and their ryebread sandwich with salmon, green pea puree and peanuts is a treat.

Smag | Store Kongensgade 44 | Copenhagen

Design Museum Denmark (Museum)

Copenhagen by Anders Arhøj

Whenever I feel uninspired I visit the (now genericly named) Design Museum, formerly known as Kunstindustrimuseet. Sort of the V&A of Copenhagen. An old museum filled with gorgeus fabrics, weird artifacts and a cozy library filled with books about arts & crafts from around the world. If you're still uninspired after a visit here you're not able to. Don't forget to have lunch in the beautiful center garden surrounding by the overgrown buildings, statues and old trees.

Dyrehaven (Park)

Copenhagen by Anders Arhøj

Just 25 min by train from downtown Copenhagen lies an old and beautiful forest and country area inhabited by wild (but friendly) deer. It's a vast, mysterious space for getting lost in and perfect for spacing out on mushrooms if you bring friends. Stay away on Sundays as it fills up with screaming children and zombie parents. Grab an ice cream on your way back at Bakken, the old David Lynch-ish fairground located at the outskirts of the forest.

Dyrehaven | Klampenborg S-train station | Copenhagen

Helgoland (Place)

Copenhagen by Anders Arhøj

In the summertime you can take the Metro directly to the beach. And if you're over the crowded white trash tanning and blanket sex scene, enter the hidden away mens or womens area located in the big wooden beach bathhouse. Here you can lie naked and enjoy the sun on your private parts while reading a novel or surfing your iPad. Expect lots of gays and lesbos which can be a curse or a party depending on who you are as a person.

Address
Helgoland | Øresund Metro station | Copenhagen
