Charming Copenhangen

Written By: Kathleen Ng Cheong Ton

The great thing about having taken the train is that we got to rest between the different legs of our trip. No one had to worry about getting lost driving or figuring out parking. All we needed was our luggage and ourselves! The trip back to Copenhagen from Billund went smoothly with our Eurail passes. We were served sandwiches for lunch and kicked back for a bit before starting the next leg of our trip.

Copenhagen is filled with so many architectural, historical and cultural treasures. We stayed in Nordhavn, an up and coming new district of the capital. We were right by the water, which is integral to Copenhagen and its surroundings. We ordered Copenhagen Cards which allowed us to take all of the public transportation for free and access almost all of the main attractions included in the cost of the card. I strongly recommend taking a canal tour to get a broad overview of the city!

We loved discovering the multicultural food scene – we tried Pakistani food at Zahida (fantastic tasting menu!), Japanese at Men-O Ramen, the incredible pastries at Andersen Bakery, smorrebrod (Danish open-faced sandwiches with an innumerable number of different toppings to choose from) and so much more. Reffen, an outdoor street food market was one of our favourite stops. There are dozens of food stalls, selling fantastic bites of everything from tacos to fried cauliflower to oysters to fresh pasta. The view was spectacular at sunset and the vibe was just incredible, with tons of picnic tables available, fire pits with lounge chairs and even games for everyone to play.
