Copenhagen Shopping, Sightseeing and Sleeping

Shopping, Sightseeing and Sleeping
Copenhagen – Shopping
There are two main shopping areas in Copenhagen, the main city centre, filled with high street and designer stores, which is easy enough to find and navigate yourself. And to the North East of the city is the up and coming area of Norrebro, similar to London’s Shoreditch. This area has recently under gone gentrification and with the additions of the Acne Archive store and trendy shoe shop Goggle, I would definitely recommend you pay this area a visit. The main street to head to is called Elmgade. You’ll know you’re in the right place when you see all the hipsters hanging out at the coffee shops.

To the west of the city are the quaint boutique shops around Vaernedamsvej. Filled with niche design stores, trendy boutiques and pretty florists, head to Granola Cafe for breakfast and have an early morning mooch around the area.

Vestergade – The Town Centre
Housing most of the well known European high street and designer stores, it’s really quite easy to find your way around the area. Key stores of note are – Weekday, the Scandanavian urban clothes store, Companys department store which houses many Nordic labels such as Closed, Tiger of Sweden, Designers Remix and By Malene Birger. On Krystalgade you’ll also find Times Up Vintage store and the Wood Wood boutique.

Copenhagen – Hotels
Scandinavian design Restaurant at the Skt Petri
For the ultimate Scandi design hotel experience check into to Skt Petri, officially the hotel of Copenhagen Fashion Week. The interior comprises of large clean spaces, architectural structured lines but in seductive dark tones which give it a warm and welcoming atmosphere. It’s location is right in the centre of the city, perfect for shopping tourists. In the evening head to the bar for cocktails, be warned though, if you’re staying in a room which over looks the foyer during fashion week expect no sleep! either that or just join the party!

Norre Sogade 11
For the exact opposite experience to the lively Skt Petri Hotel, if you need a little down time, head to The Kong Arthur. Set in a serene spot over looking the canal, surounded by picturesque jogging routes and leafy views, the Kong Arthur is a peaceful boutique hotel. Complete with spa, roaring fires and delicious healthy breakfasts served in the pretty conservatory restaurant. It’s blissful!
