Come to Copenhagen, she said

Come to Copenhagen, she said. And I’ll say it, again. There is something special about this clean Danish capital, chock full of cobblestoned charm, history, and culture.

Seven years we spent living in Copenhagen, embracing all things Scandinavian. Here, you’ll find insider tips for any upcoming visits – like what to eat and how to enjoy the city’s seasons like a local.

An accessible city full of historic charm, Copenhagen is also progressive and modern. I work hard to offer sustainable travel experiences, easy to do in this green city. Want to self-serve? Scroll down for tons of articles to help guide your own Danish adventures.
