The 8 best restaurants and hotels in Copenhagen

If the Danish capital is one of your next destinations, start preparing the trip with our restaurant and hotel tips in Copenhagen.

Looking for restaurants and hotels in Copenhagen? The catering offer in Copenhagen is quite rich with places to suit all tastes and wallets. From the most distinctive and innovative to the most traditional, one thing is certain – you must try the Nordic gastronomy, for its high quality and focus on the use of local and seasonal products.

When it comes to sleeping, there are no shortage of options. From the finest hotels to more options, our Copenhagen hotel suggestions have a commonality – its great location in central parts of the city that allow you to quickly reach the main attractions.

RESTAURANTS IN COPENHAGEN: MOUTH WATERING SUGGESTIONS

The Palaegade is a classic restaurant in the historic center of Copenhagen. Here you can sample some Nordic specialties such as Smorrebrod, an “open” sandwich – combinations of ingredients such as blue cheese, pear and hazelnuts, roast beef, pickles and radishes are placed and served under a slice of bread.

For lunch, we also serve Aquavita, a kind of typical Danish brandy enriched with aromatic herbs. For dinner you can order more exquisite dishes such as poached sole with cucumber, potatoes and white fish roe sauce. Accompany with one of the wines from the discerning restaurant selection.

UFORMEL

The Uformel (in Portuguese, informal) belongs to a restaurant chain in which also includes the Palaegade. However, contrary to our previous suggestion, and as its name implies, Uformel is an unpretentious restaurant, with more affordable prices, but that keeps the focus on the quality of the products.

Taste the mullet with grilled corn, herbs and yogurt or steak tartar with pickles of mushrooms and black pepper. The 15 dishes change according to the season and the ingredients used come from domestic producers. In addition, Uformel has also gained fame thanks to its cocktails, which you can try before you start the meal.

NEIGHBORHOOD

The specialty of the Neighborhood is the pizzas, and they are not any pizzas. These are modern interpretations of the Italian classic, lighter and crisper, organic and greener. The pasta is reduced to about half of a traditional pizza and the ingredients are mostly fresh vegetables, pickled vegetables, fresh cheese, fresh pesto, seafood and high-quality meats. There are also cocktails and yes, you guessed it – they are also organic, with fresh and seasonal fruit, herbs and vegetables. If you prefer, opt for a natural juice.

The experience of making a meal in the Neighborhood is also worth it for the space. Food is served at long tables, where people sit right next to each other. The goal is to foster the spirit of good neighborliness and community.

COPENHAGEN STREET FOOD

We could not fail to suggest, on this list of restaurants and hotels in Copenhagen, the passage through Copenhagen Street Food, with its food trucks, coffees, beer and other drinks. Some of the participants serve food of organic origin, but here what matters most is the taste, albeit ally, always, a component of sustainability. And you can sample specialties ranging from Korea to Mexico, from Italy to Scandinavia, at affordable prices.

In addition, you will get to know Papiroen (Paper Island), the small island that once served as a paper warehouse and which today houses not only Copenhagen Street Food but also several art galleries, area businesses creative and trendy cafes.

HOTELS IN COPENHAGEN

COZY EVENING

I hope you all had a nice contemplative time with your family for Christmas. Thus, New Year’s Eve is coming and the new year. The time between Christmas & New Year is mostly used to set new goals & to reflect on the past year at least we use this time for things like that.

Anyone planning a cozy evening with friends on New Year’s Eve at home but still need a nice outfit. This outfit we are going to show you fits probably perfect for New Year’s Eve & the cold season. So ​​why freeze in short skirts in front of the club, if you can put on such a stylish sweater?

A beautifully cut of a sweater can look great even with simple black jeans & boots. The sleeves of the pullover are the highlight, because not only blouses have such sleeves. Unfortunately, you dunk in every bowl or plate, but that does not matter!

Just a tip: If you want to admire the fireworks outside at 12 am, you need a matching jacket on the arms, because the sleeves form otherwise only an immovable knot in the jacket & it looks really not nice.

Well, we wish you a nice holiday, a happy new year and “einen guten Rutsch ins neue Jahr” as we say in Germany.

WRAPPED

Whether for the daily journey to school or to work, for visiting the Christmas market or for romantic walks through the white winter forest: A good winter coat protects against frosty temperatures, wind and snow. Just like this one. Long cut, quilted pattern and oversize characterize the year 2017 and hopefully many other years because these jackets not only keep you warm but also look good!

And, of course, such a chic winter coat is part of the basic equipment of every woman of today who does not let herself be deterred by freezing temperatures.

These coats warm our hearts at first glance because they can be combined in many ways. Whether chic with beautiful boots and accessories or the way we have combined it. One thing is certain: no one freezes, so let it snow!

THE TRENCHCOAT

We love the ensemble playing of a cute trenchcoat and a normal black jeans or other casual trousers. Anyways, we present you our latest acquisition! It’s this beautiful timeless trenchcoat from Zara.

The classic trenchcoat usually has buttons, is shorter and has a belt but chose a different kind. The long cut and the missing buttons and belt make the trenchcoat look more casual. Until a few months ago, we both didn’t own a single trenchcoat. All the years we constantly passed the it-pieces until we went to Budapest in autumn. So many girls wore trenchcoats in a variety of cuts, lengths and colors and they inspired us to buy such a jacket. Now we don’t want to miss it in our wardrobe anymore. They have been classics for years! The fashion world presents new designs of jackets every season but the classic trenchcoat is one of the less timeless clothing pieces that just keep up with the trend. Furthermore it enhances any simple outfit. It seems casual and consistent but definitly not boring. Last but not least a trenchcoat suits every occasion, whether a restaurant visit or a business meeting, with a trenchcoat you are always on the right track.

OUTFIT INSPIRATION PART TWO

In need of some fresh outfit inspiration for fall? We got you! Here is the link if you want to check out part one as well.

We represent you 4 more outfits worth recreating. Easily prepared by reusing single items into another style option. By the way that’s the perfect method when you are traveling!

DSC05128DSC05166DSC05167DSC05168

One simple detail will take your outfit to the next level with its chic sleeve tie accent. Make this top your new go-to. Try this simply style with your favorite maternity jeans and sneakers or booties for an adorable look.

DSC05043DSC05046DSC05051

What a cute coat, isn’t it? The coat isn’t only cute but also really warm which suited the mild weather. By the way the jacket is actually for kids because I got it when I was 14 years old but it still fits me even though the sleeves are shorter than normal. The coat is just too pretty not too wear!

DSC05271DSC05269DSC05274DSC05288DSC05298

Another super simple style that consists of a comfortable sweater and some ripped jeans. The inscription of the jeans is the highlight of our outfit. To make your style look even cooler you can tie your sweater in the front or stuck it in your jeans. It jazzes up your casual outfit.

DSC05319DSC05336

Here we go again with the blue jeans coat. We promise it’s going to be the last outfit by wearing the jacket! Now to be honest these trousers are actually the most comfortable and stretchy trousers I ever wore besides sweatpants. The fabric consits of viscose, polyamides and elastane. In love!!!

OUTFIT INSPIRATION PART ONE

DSC04646DSC04652

One of our new favorite, especially my new favorite is this jacket by Zara. Actually love at first sight but no purchase after the first sight, because I was insecure.

Uncertain whether it is really worth buying this jacket or not. After 10 more times in this shop and after all the times standing in front of the same jacket I finally bought it … and hey!!! Now I can say I don’t regret it at all. This jacket is perfect for the cold winter season. (sequel follows)

We got the jeans jacket from our cooperation with Sheinside. The jacket is cool, casual, comfortable and fits many styles so it’s an absolute master. We combined it with some black trousers with tiny white stripes and a casual white top you actually can’t see in the photos.

DSC04833DSC04836img_4433

Unlike the second outfit which is rather less suitable for cold days, but for Budapest and this beautiful weather there it was the best choice.

DSC04801DSC04819

There is the jacket again as we said it’s an absolute master. That time with a little black dress. That style is more girly than the other jeans jacket look. Here is the one proof that you can combine it to so many different styles as you like. It’s worth buying yourself a jeans jacket because it’s a “neutral” color.

BUDAPEST, HUNGARY

Our last trip was to Budapest, the heart of Hungary. Budapest is not only impressively and unique because of all these beautiful buildings and sights but also varied. We can be lucky that this city was largely spared from the war because it offers a multicultural heritage for the tourists, as evidenced by Roman buildings and ruins, Serbian synagogues and churches and Turkish thermal baths. So perfect for photo-freaks like us who try to take the best photo everywhere (literally laying on the ground to get the best ankle)!

Országház / Parliament of Budapest

DSC04590DSC04725DSC04957

The Parliament Building is richly decorated down to the smallest detail and is the largest public building in Hungary with its 17,745 sqm. It is incredibly impressive and believe us we were impressed and speechless every time leaving the metro station (Kossuth tér). So it is an absolute must visiting the Parliament Building but hand on heart – you can hardly overlook it.

Halászbástya / Fisherman’s Bastion

Another place of interest is the Fisherman’s Bastion in the Buda Castle district. The panorama terraces offer a unique view of Budapest. You have a great perspective of the Danube and the Parliament Building. The sweet oriental towers inspired us and we can only recommend it.

Budavári Palota / Buda Castle

The Buda Castle district, however, is not just the Fisherman’s Bastion, but also the Castle Palace, the Szent György Square and the historic residential district.

In addition to all the sights like Heroes’ Square, Citadel or St. Stephen’s Basilica the city doesn’t only offer a lot of attractive and interesting “historical places” also the Danube, the street artists, the city center and the old tram make the city what it is now.

We had a few wonderful days in this city and could still report about it. But before we steal your ideas don’t wait too long and go get into a car, in the bus or in the plane and discover the city. It’s worth it! See for yourself.

URBAN OUTFITTERS WISHLIST

Who is ready for fall? We are and to get inspired we searched through Urban Outfitters and picked out some real cool clothes. Unfortunately there is no Urban Outfitters store in our neighborhood but we like traveling all the way to Berlin just to get to UO or other stores twice a year. The online shop is a good option but we like to experience the fashion by feeling the fabrics, trying clothes on and just having that shopping feeling while walking through the store and dancing to the music.
