Last week, Hello Peagreen was featured in a bloggers guide to Copenhagen by the Nordic Notes blog. Nicola from Nordic Notes asked a whole host of design bloggers to share their tips and recommendations for visiting Copenhagen. You might recall I had a wonderful family trip to Copenhagen in 2016 with my then 3-year-old, which we all thoroughly enjoyed and last year I visited again for work. It’s a lovely comprehensive post with tips on where to get coffee, where to eat and where to get your culture fix – which you can read here. There is something for everyone no matter what your travel objective is. And yours truly was included, with my tips on my favourite area to explore in Copenhagen.
Here’s the tip I shared in a blogger guide to Copenhagen;
Copenhagen as a city is a beautiful, sustainable and eco-conscious city without the hemp and patchouli. On our most recent visit, my family and I stayed in one of my favourites areas, the Vesterbro district. Its a mix of the avant-garde and industrial, and used to be Copenhagen’s red light district. It’s chokka with independent shops, creative talent and the kind of stores and cafes I want to hang out in all day. Make sure you have space in your suitcase for all your finds!
My other Copenhagen travel tips can be found here but I’d also add that Istedgade is Vesterbro’s best shopping street and I’d also recommend visiting the restaurants Les Trois Cochons and Cofoco to see the interiors. My favourite stores in the area were Dora, Edison & Co and the Playtype store. Copenhagen makes a great family travel option for a city break in my opinion and I share more of my family city break tips here.
