Right now in Copenhagen for about 24 hours on vacation. So I’ve been here before and seen the little mermaid, Nyhavn and a few other tourist sites. So, what to do? It’s pretty simple. I love this city and I love food and beer. Which in this case seams to be a pretty perfect combo. Because that’s something that Copenhagen does really good.
Me and my wife started of by talking a walk and go shopping in the district of Vesterbro that is a really cool district. I found a new shirt and T-shirt.
Then we had booked a table at Mad & Kaffe after recommendations from a friend that lives in Copenhagen. Here I had the best ice the I ever had. Sweet ice the with passion fruit. Already here this where a really good place that I had the salmon sandwich and the fries with aioli and it became a great place. One of my best experiences of Scandinavian food.
After lunch it was nice to walk from Vesterbro to Nørrebro along the lakes and water in central Copenhagen. The warm sunny weather and the beautiful and diverse architecture made this replacing and beautiful. Got that summer vacation vibe.
Then we stopped at Brus which is a stunning beer and food bar in a brewery run by To Øl. I found this place while looking for beer bars and breweries in Copenhagen. This is hipster place with classic Scandinavian interior and amazing beer. Probably my new favorite place in Copenhagen. Can’t wait to visits the place again.
A walk back to the hotel and then dinner at Warpigs in Kødbyen. Which also is a brewery pub know for its meat in Texan bbq style and their beer. Real great meat and good beer in a big square with a lot of other restaurants.
Amazing day in Copenhagen and a great day just hangin around.
This morning I woke up in an sunny Copenhagen with snow in the air. I live a short walk from the train station and could see from my hotel window, it’s a pretty majestic building. I started of the day by take a walk to the pedestrian shopping street Strøget.
Started out by the city hall which is a enormous brick building with status and gold.
We walked along Strøget and took a side street in order to find H&M’s latest concept which is a store brand called Arket. I rather quick found two T-shirt’s and a woolen hat. Bit by wife won the shopping as she usually does.
The my sister and her boyfriend joined us and we had a quick hotdog at 7-eleven. Before we hoped on a hop on hop off sightseeing bus and a tour called the mermaid tour. Yes it actually takes you to the statue of the mermaid as a inspiration of the famous danish author H.C. Andersens story. The tour also show us Nyhavn a The Royal palaces in Copenhagen among other things.
After that we slit up for a moment me and the family and me and G got back to Strøget for some more shopping. And I spent some time taking some photos. The tour and the walking around Copenhagen has really made me see more of the great architecture of Copenhagen.
We finished of the night by dinner at the concept restaurant The Italian. Which obviously serves great Italian food. Where we had a three course dinner and some good wine, everyone excepts my sister which is pregnant. So pretty awesome day and I highly recommend The Italian.
Finally in Copenhagen and what I’ve been looking forward to this. So tonight have we checked in at Hotel Saga where we are staying this weekend.
After we had checked in we took a stroll down to the meet district that nowadays is a real cool district filled with cool restaurants. This the old meat district in Copenhagen. I was so impressed and I could go here many more times in order to try more restaurants.
However, we ended up at a place called BOB – BioMio Organic Bistro. Which looks like and old auto repair shop or an old hardware store from the outside. Interior and food as also amazing.
After the restaurant we called it a night in order to be well rested until the rest of the weekend.
Friday and it’s finally time for Copenhagen, Denmark. Just working in the last minute changes in the luggage. Then down to the car and driving to work. Will work half day today is the plan and then I’m taking the train from Gothenburg to Copenhagen together with my mom. The train goes directly Gothenburg-Copenhagen. Then the hotel where we are staying is quite close to the train station. Super excited!
Just now the sun is rising and it looks like a beautiful day. Great start of the day.
I’ve got two trips planned this spring and both are to Copenhagen, Denmark. There tow different kinds of trips and the first one will be already in March and the second one in May. The last one was book just a few hours ago so I’m super happy about it. Especially because I went to bed last night thinking the it would be a while before my next trip.
The first trip will be a family trip in order to celebrate my moms birthday together with my sister, her boyfriend V and off course my wife G. The plan is pretty simple, to hang out with my family to eat good food and have a relaxed and nice weekend. All tips for good restaurants and things to do are more than welcome. If you got any please leave a comment below.
The second trip will be a hockey trip in order to see IIHF World Championships 2018. So an all day in Copenhagen in order to see three games with Team Sweden as the big game together with two friends. Me and Alexander that’s going to join have been watching and discussing all Hockey World Championships since 1992 together sp its kind of a big deal and its the first time we will watch any of the games live. Super excited about this one as well.
Now are both trips official. I just have to finalize the last details on these trips but I’m so looking forward to both of them. I visited Copenhagen in March 2015 last time and really started to like the city so, I’m real happy to go back.
Here are the post from 2015 if you would like to catch up.
The review of Mad Klubben is by the way one fo the most read posts ever in the blog.

Weekend in Copenhagen
Shopping Sunday in Copenhagen
Couldn’t resist to upload some photos from last time as well.
Have been trying to post this for a while now but today I finally got some pictures in from the trip into this post. This is about the weekend in Copenhagen two weekends ago.
It’s was a great weekend in Copenhagen for me and G. We arrived rather late at Friday evening and checked in at the hotel and then went out for a short walk and got something to eat. In this case it was a classic red Danish sausage.
Saturday started off by breakfast and then we got ready for the baptism of some friends daughter in Lund, Sweden. Took the train to Sweden which where very easy to do and worked perfect an took less than an hour. The baptism where beautiful and it where a traditional Swedish baptism in the church and afterward it where some Coffe and cake and we got to socialize with our friends. After that we had a short walk in Lund and had some lunch.
After that we headed back with the train to Copenhagen and Denmark. For a little walk in Copenhagen and then some dinner at the restaurant Madklubben Bistro-de-lux. Then the day where pretty much over since both me and G where rather tired after the day.
Sunday where mainly a shopping day but also to walk around a little bit. After that we headed out to the airport and did some tax free shopping and just relaxed until our flight for Oslo left. A great weekend where we visited all Scandinavia countries.
Great weekend and really like Copenhagen so would like to go back soon again. Then I hope to write some reviews of restaurants and so on as soon as I get the time and post them here on the blog.
By the way I nerver thought I would say this but I love Copenhagen.
Yesterday where the last day of my trip in Copenhagen and the only day that I in fact spend the most of the day in Copenhagen. We had a flight that left first that evening so we got some time in Copenhagen. It’s a beautiful city. The plane where to take a walk and se some sightseeing spots but the weather where very windy and also had some rain so we started the walk but cut it short and went shopping at the shopping street Strøget and in the neighborhood around it. Strøget is apparently the longest shopping street in Europe did I learn today. If my sources are correct is it this with a length if approximately 1100 meters.
I found two t-shirts from the Danish clothing brand Samsø & Samsø that I really like and a little photography book at Urban Outfitters.
Also looked for some cloths for G and found some stuff and &other stories.
We where also in some other stores but it where her we did some shopping. Then we had lunch at a Italian restaurant that I will write a restaurant review at as soon as possible.
After that we took a nice walk by the water back to the hotel and picked up our bags and headed out to he airport where we ate some and did some more minor shopping.
