HOTELS, APARTMENTS, VACATION RENTALS AND BED AND BREAKFAST IN COPENAGHEN
Copenhagen, the capital of Denmark, is situated on the islands of Selandia and Amager, just opposite Malmö, from which it is separated by the Øresund Strait. Composed of the districts of Indre by, Vesterbro, Nørrebro, Østerbro, Christianshavn and Frederiksberg, the city of Copenhagen is a real jewel both from an architectural and living point of view. Named the green capital of Europe in 2014, Copenhagen has been ranked among the top 10 most liveable cities in the world in recent years. It is easy to see the reasons for this: attention to the environment, driven by a cycling vocation, mutual respect, high civic sense and “Hygge”, that is the approach to life, typical of Danish culture, which leads to the search for happiness in small things. Difficult to explain, impossible to translate but to try and assimilate only by going there.
Apartments and holiday rentals in Copenhagen
It has always been synonymous with the avant-garde, both in the culinary field and in that of design, architecture and art. Avant-garde that mixes, or rather merges, skillfully with the history that we breathe here. Copenhagen is always surprising, both in summer and in winter. Book an apartment in Indre By, the historic center of the city, so you’ll be within walking or cycling distance from Tivoli Garden, the world’s oldest amusement park, the Botanical Garden and, of course, Strøget, the shopping street. Small enough to be walked around entirely, Indre By will delight you with its cobblestone streets, beautiful squares and numerous museums. Also in this neighborhood you will find some of the best restaurants in the city, such as AOC, Kokkeriet, Høst and Uformel. In Denmark, and in Copenhagen in particular, the cuisine is serious!
A little to the west of the city centre is Vesterbro, a former food and meat processing area, which has been redeveloped and is now the cradle of the city’s rich cultural scene. It is a good choice to book a hotel or holiday rental as it is practically in the centre but with lower prices. Visit the Copenhagen Museum and the Carlsberg Beer Museum.
Rent a holiday home or any kind of accommodation in the picturesque, original and trendy Christianshavn district. You can visit the beautiful Danish Naval Museum, the very modern Copenhagen Opera House or climb the 400 steps of the spiral staircase to the top of the golden spire of Our Redeemer’s Church from where you can enjoy a breathtaking view of the city.
Full of cafes and unique venues, this neighborhood is especially famous because since 1971 it is home to The Free City of Christiania, a real small town in the city, where the 850 residents govern themselves, according to the Free City of Christiania Law of 1989.
It can be said to be the hippie stronghold of all of Denmark, with alternative venues, car-free streets and kiosks where you can freely buy and smoke hashish and marijuana.
If you want to book a fantastic luxury hotel, you should certainly look at the Sterbro district (Østerbro), north of the old town. Exclusive and residential area, certainly one of the greenest areas of Copenhagen, hosting, among others, the Fælledparken park, the largest in Denmark, where you can admire the Statue of the Little Mermaid. There are, of course, many restaurants offering vegan and vegetarian cuisine.
Also the district of Frederiksberg, like Sterbro, offers the possibility to book luxury apartments and design hotels. Here, on Værnedamsvej Street, you will probably find the best restaurants in town. Copenhagen Zoo is also worth a visit.
If you are looking for a (cheaper) accommodation, Nørrebro is the opposite choice. Lively and multicultural, it boasts numerous art galleries and well-stocked bookstores, as well as shops and antique dealers. In this neighborhood you’ll find great accommodation in hostels, budget hotels and even B&Bs.
Finally, on the island of Amager, the Restad district is worth a visit. Copenhagen’s newest and most avant-garde district, although a bit far from the centre, is certainly worth a visit: contemporary architecture surrounded by water. The accommodations in this area are very varied and range from the cheapest hostels to large luxury hotels. Always recommended to attend one of the many concerts held in DR Koncerthuset.
What are the recommended places to see in Copenhagen?
- Statens Museum for Kunst
It exhibits works by artists such as Mantegna, Picasso, Tintoretto, Rubens, Matisse and Rembrandt. Absolutely to see. Sølvgade 48-50, 1307 København K
The famous old harbour of Copenhagen, overlooked by beautiful little houses as colourful as the ones you see on the postcards.
- Amager Strandpark
A long white expanse that winds through dunes and hidden lagoons. 5 km south of the city centre. Amager Strand Promenaden 1, Copenhagen 2300

Microbrewery with the mission to make the Danes proud of their beer. In Ryesgade 3

where you can enjoy probably the best Smørrebrød in Copenhagen. For those who don’t know, Smørrebrød is a real institution here: slices of rye bread covered with meat, smoked fish, cheese or pâté. In Store Kongensgade 70
What to eat in Copenhagen?
When you visit Copenhagen, you can’t not eat:
- Smørrebrød: Slices of rye bread covered with meat, smoked fish, cheese or pâté.
- Stegt flæsk: considered Denmark’s national dish, it is crispy pork served with boiled potatoes and parsley sauce.
- Røde Pølser: Danish variation of the classic hot dog. Very popular.
- Kogt Torsk: boiled cod generally accompanied by boiled pâtés.
- Alesuppe: eel soup.
- Wienerbrød: typical Danish pastry cake made from flour, butter, almonds and sugar.
- Rødgrød med Fløde or simply Grød: berries dipped in fresh cream
Restaurants in Copenhagen are of all kinds and for all budgets. In addition to the famous (and starred) Geranium, Aoc, Noma, Kadeau Copenhagen, you can find others much cheaper but offering a respectable menu: Kronborg, Falernum, Brace, Restaurant Schoennemann, Bio Mio.
Book a vacation rental in Malmö, Sweden which is right across the street from Copenhagen. What about a nice apartment in Hamburg instead? It’s very close to Copenhagen and can be reached either by a very short flight or in a few hours by train, often at super discounted rates. Or you might like a hotel in the centre of Amsterdam, very close as well.

Neighbourhood is great and you are very close to little shops, Cafés and Center.Iris reviewed Perfectly located 3 rooms-apt. at Østerbro in Indre Østerbro
Lena & Lars' apartment was lovely, neat and clean while homely at the same time. We loved the natural light and amazing balcony overlooking the water! In warm weather it would be perfect for having dinner outside. The location was perfect, we could walk to many great spots, including cafés, restaurants, shops and the Little Mermaid. The bus stop was literally on the doorstep, and there is a supermarket just across the road for supplies. The apartment is styled beautifully, lots of white, light and airy, Lena and Lars have some nice design pieces too - to us it felt very modern Danish, which I loved! Such a nice place to stay, we would definitely love to come back when next in Copenhagen!Tristan reviewed Quiet area in the heart of CPH. in Copenhagen
Thank you, Emily & Tristan
