Copenhagen is certainly picturesque during prime hygge season, when snow-dusted Christmas markets come to town and the whole city lights up. In the summer, however, Copenhagen truly comes alive! If you’re after sunny 17-hour days, book your trip between April and September. You’ll encounter fewer crowds in April or May than during peak summer months; though, some of the best festivals do take place in the heart of the summer!
Perfectly placed, with beautiful views over Nyhavn harbor, Hotel D’Angleterre is forever our top choice for the perfect stay in Copenhagen. This elegant, historic icon was founded in 1755, hosting numerous major events in the ballroom over the past centuries. That being said, this elegant palace hotel is not stuck in the past, and has a contemporary interior that combines lavish chandeliers with class and comfort.
Service at Hotel D’Angleterre is always flawless, charming and efficient, and the facilities are exquisite. Home to one of the best spas in the world, and Michelin starred dining, you might find it hard to leave this luxurious haven.
The concierge can help with plenty of VIP experiences – from cooking classes to history tours – you’ll enjoy the very best of Copenhagen.
Hotel D’Angleterre’s in-house spa, Amazing Space, has a sauna, Hammam, fitness room and the world’s most relaxing pool. Spoil yourself with a decadent facial that uses nourishing organic products to deliver a magical Nordic glow. Amazing Space also represents an award winning line of cutting-edge beauty products. Stock up on your favorites before leaving, or visit their online store for harmony and balance that goes beyond the spa.
Michelin starred dining can be found at Hotel D’Angleterre’s very own Marchal. This beautiful fusion of Nordic cuisine with a classic French twist will appeal to all your senses. Executive Chef Jakob de Neergaard is one of Denmark’s greatest masters of French cuisine, and has lifted Marchal to new heights.
Perhaps Copenhagen’s most well-known restaurant (voted world’s No. 1 multiple years in a row!). Noma’s menu follows the seasons: vegetarian in the summer, game and forest-inspired food in the fall, seafood in the late winter/early spring. Also one of the world’s hardest tables to secure, you’ll likely need to get on the waiting list. NOMA is already fully booked for the entire 2022 season.
Also a difficult table to secure, the Alchemist aims to “transform and transcend the nature of food and dining”. Here you will receive up to 50 “impressions accompanied by a beverage pairing of your choice”. This meal is for those with an open mind!
With diners seated in an actual greenhouse located in the Tivoli Gardens, this whole experience is for those who love their greens! After dinner, be sure to stick around to roast homemade marshmallows or twist bread over a campfire in the herb garden. Note: when the gardens are open, admission is required in order to visit the restaurant.
On the picturesque harbor front you’ll find Amass, a fine dining tasting menu experience from the former head chef of Noma. With more than 80 different homegrown goods from the restaurant’s own greenhouse, the quality of the food is only matched by the creative atmosphere.
Church of Our Saviour Spire: Climb to the top of this architecturally beautiful, spiraling staircase for one of the best views in all of Copenhagen!
Rosenborg Castle Gardens: Stroll through the luxurious grounds leading up to the castle, winding through multi-colored roses and across perfectly manicured lawns. Visit the interior if there’s time for a royal experience.
Assistens Cemetery: While this is the resting place of Hans Christian Anderson, Assistens is full of life! The grounds are beautiful, with lush gardens and detailed stone carvings providing a peaceful ambiance for a summer afternoon.
Royal Library: Also known as ‘The Black Diamond’, this is one of the largest libraries in all of Europe. The irregular angles and unorthodox color, makes this library an architectural masterpiece worth exploring.
