The best places to discover in Copenhagen

Proof that the Nordic countries are still as fascinating, Copenhagen, in the same way, as Oslo where Stockholm is one of the favorite destinations of seasoned travelers. While Fashion Week is in full swing, here are our favorite addresses across the Danish capital.

The Audo

At the same time hotel, restaurant, café, concept store, library, artists’ workshop, a stage that hosts cultural events … The Audo is a privileged refuge for creative fauna in Copenhagen. Designed by Bjarne Hansen (behind MENU, temple of design and lifestyle in Denmark) this space was created by the studio Norm Architects, but also Nathan Williams, the co-founder of the magazine Kinfolk turned towards the art of living and architecture. Located in an old neo-baroque building, in the industrial port district of the Danish capital, visitors discover what could be a collectors’ house. The attic rooms are cozy cocoons where light pierces. Not to mention the Café, which opens onto a small green garden, and serves steaming slats and fluffy pastries.The Audo Kim Petersen© Provided by Vogue The Audo Kim Petersen

Hotel Sanders

Among the good places in Copenhagen to put your suitcases, the Hotel Sanders brings together in one place the best of the current design. Installed behind the Royal Theatre in Copenhagen, it opened its doors on 1 November 2017 at the instigation of star dancer Alexander Kølpin. Infusing his theatricality and his keen sense of detail, the Danish explores influences, between colonial spirit, British plays, and Parisian sets, helped by the Lind + Almond studio. The result is 54 cozy rooms, living rooms where works of art from the collections of the Dais Contemporary sit, a green winter garden but also a charming restaurant with seasonal cuisine.Hotel Sanders in Copenhagen Hotel Sanders in Copenhagen© Provided by Vogue Hotel Sanders in Copenhagen Hotel Sanders in Copenhagen

The Apartment

Imagined by Tina Seidenfaden Busck, this great Danish shop is designed as the apartment of a private individual. Mixing vintage furniture, but also more contemporary creations, we find Veninicandlesticks, McCollin Bryantables, 20s lighting … Another good point, the place offers the possibility of booking one or more nights in an apartment with two bedrooms, a large living room, and a bathroom, fully decorated by the designer. An attractive alternative to the eternal hotel.The Appartment The Apartment© Provided by Vogue The Apartment The Apartment

Rent

No need to present Noma, a superb table of chef René Redzepi regularly crowned the best restaurant in the world. Closed for several months, it reopened its doors at the beginning of the year and introduces a new culinary calendar. The menus are now dictated by themed seasons: vegetables from summer to early autumn, forest, and terroir from autumn to the end of the year, fish and seafood from winter to spring… Don’t forget to book (very) well in advance.Rent© Provided by Vogue Noma

Lidkoeb

With its leather benches, beast skin blankets, and crackling fireplace, this bar is one of the must-sees passing through Copenhagen. In a cozy atmosphere, the place offers new Nordic cocktails (including bourbon with smoked walnut or flavored with birch syrup), but also rare whiskies from an impressive dedicated cellar. No wonder then that the Copenhagoise crowd crowds there at nightfall.Lidkoeb© Provided by Vogue Lidkoeb

Kastrup Lake Bath

Feet in the water, Copenhagen allows you to take a multitude of invigorating walks. Especially on the side of Kastrup Søbad, an architectural hot spot where the Danes dive during the summer.
