Trip To Copenhagen

I love city breaks they are my all time favourite (I think you will know this by now if you have been reading my blog for a while as I'm always writing up about the new cities I've visited.) I try and visit at least one new city a year (and if I'm lucky two!) for valentines day my boyfriend treated me to a three day break in Copenhagen, somewhere I had never really given much thought too, however after seeing a lot of pictures all over Instagram of people visiting this city it made me want to go and visit myself. 

Copenhagen is such a beautiful city and we did a lot in our three day visits, (we always manage to pack so much in to our short city breaks!). We stayed in a hotel just behind the harbour which was in an ideal location called Skt Annae when we arrived for check in we where very lucky as we had been upgraded to their suites. I very much enjoyed my stay at this hotel and the staff were very helpful and friendly and the hotel itself had lovely modern decor. 

I think my favourite part of Copenhagen was the harbour, (The colourful buildings look so pretty). I'm really missing sitting outside the cafes/restaurants drinking my mid-day baileys hot chocolate. 
There are so many lovely restaurants by the harbour, however I will warn you that most of the kitchens shut by 9pm which is early for a city. We normally eat out late on holiday due to making the most of the day being out and exploring, so keep this in mind if you are planning a visit. 

The easiest way to get around Copenhagen is by bike, I think there is probably more bikes on the road than there are cars! We rented out bikes on our last afternoon and it was a really fun way to see the city so I would highly recommend doing this. They have bikes out on the street that you can hire which have built in navigations which excellent, however these bikes were not made for short people like me! So we had to hire ours from a private bike shop and unfortunately we did not have navigation on ours. 

We did all the typical touristy things in Copenhagen like a visit to see the Little Mermaid statue, the Carlsberg factory, the viewing point at the round tower and Rosenborg castle. I would recommend all of these places each of them made our experience in Copenhagen very enjoyable.  

For me this trip was not about shopping but to explore another city, however Copenhagen has a good range of shops on offer from most high-street and designer stores. There is also the Illum centre which has shops and at the top a rooftop bar and restaurant area, which offers amazing views of the city. 

Unlike London and some other cities Copenhagen had more of a relaxed vibe as it is much less busy...I'm not sure how busy it will get in the summer months though. I love how every cafe and restaurant had candles lit event during the day and for breakfast! 

One of my favourite things to do while on a city break is just walk around and see what we day we came across the Danish museum of Art & Design. This sort of thing is right up my street, they had all sort of designs from home interiors to fashion. And the best part about it is if you are a student you get in for free! 

I really enjoyed my trip to Copenhagen and I can not wait until my next city break!
