Magstræde

Copenhagen Travel Notes with Pearlshare

One of the oldest streets in Copenhagen, this picture perfect lane (and the
adjoining street of Snaregade) are the only streets left in the city with the
original 16th century cobbled paving. The oldest building in the street,
dating from the 1640s, is the symmetrical house at No. 17-19 - ideal for an
instagram snap with a difference! Whilst you're here, why not drop into one
of the many cafes and restaurants that occupy the beautiful 17th Century
townhouses? Our personal favourite is Gorm's - they do a range of artisan
pizza that always hit the spot.

Nyhavn

Copenhagen Travel Notes with Pearlshare

If you want to visit somewhere that looks just as good as it does in the pictures,
you really can't beat beautiful Nyhavn. A picturesque tourist site, this 17th-
century waterfront, canal and entertainment district was once known for
hosting trading ships from all over the world and for it's notorious red-light
reputation. Following a period of renovation in the mid 1960's, today the
harbour is known for it's colourful 17th- & 18th-century townhouses, wooden
sail ships, restaurants and bars (although if you look very closely some
reminders of its raucous past still remain!) Boat tours of the city can be booked
from the waterside, as well as historic walking tours taking in nearby sites such
as Hans Christian Anderson's old residence.

A popular Copenhagen brunch and breakfast haunt, this classy little cafe
smacks of old school cool, and serves a range of traditional brunch dishes
and speciality teas and coffees from 7am every day. During the evenings, the
space turns into a cosy restaurant and cocktail bar, meaning that whenever
you're in town it'll suit your needs.

Central Hotel

Copenhagen Travel Notes with Pearlshare

This totally charming one room hotel
is located on a small Copenhagen side
street, and is a must if you're looking
to put a unique twist on a city break!
However, as you might expect from a
hotel of this scale, the waiting list to stay
in the room can be pretty long - so book
well in advance to avoid disappointment.
If you can't book a stay however, don't
fret; this quirky establishment also has
a fully working cafe downstairs which
provides a range of hot drinks and light
snacks for passers by. We adore the
banana split; if you want a decadent
treat, then give it a go.

Kalvebod Wave

Copenhagen Travel Notes with Pearlshare

The best place for a cold glass of something bubbly in the afternoon sunshine.
This scenic wooden boardwalk used to be known for it's commercial and business
interests; today, the area is known for its harbour bath and various sporting
activities, as well as for being a hub for local sun-bathers and casual after-work
drinks. If you're into people watching, then come down for a spell and watch the
skateboarders at work - some of their tricks are pretty impressive!

Skabelonloftet

Copenhagen Travel Notes with Pearlshare

Yet another example of how Copenhagen
not only preserves it's history, but
keeps it effortlessly cool. This 80 year
old shipyard loft is on top of the former
Burmeister & Wain shipyard, located
only a few 100 meters from the famous
little mermaid statue. Maintaining the
original stylings and dreamy light-filled
space, today the loft holds studios for
rent on a permanent basis, and can be
rented on a daily basis for seminars,
product launches, dinners, conferences,
photoshoots, music videos, blogger
events, pop up restaurants or art
exhibitions as well as a whole host of
other events.

The Snail

Copenhagen Travel Notes with Pearlshare

It doesn't take much to work out why this stunning curling sea swimming
bath has the nickname it does. These distinctive sea baths have facilities
including changing rooms with showers and lockers, 3 and 5-meter diving
boards and a large swimming area for exercise and relaxation. The swimming
area can be fairly deep, so families with young children are advised to instead
swim in the shallow waters off the beach. However, if you're able, then
definitely take a dip into the cool, clear sea waters. It's the perfect way to
refresh and re-invigorate yourself.
