Aside from the Swedish capital Stockholm, the Danish capital Copenhagen is perhaps Scandinavia's most famous location- and for good reason. Along with modernist architecture, cosy restaurants, and well-dressed locals, the Danish capital is brimming with a whole host of breathtaking localities.

So pack your thickest coat, and book a ticket to the trendy Danish capital as soon as you can as we go through 10 things everyone should do in Copenhagen.

1. Papiroen


Copenhagen is spoilt for choice when it comes to restaurants and cafes, so don't waste valuable sightseeing time picking that perfect place. Instead, dine at Papiroen (Paper Island), a cheap eats place lined up with food trucks serving an eclectic range of cuisine from around the world.

The culinary creativity on display is truly mindblowing, with everything from vegetarian Columbian food to fiery, spice tingling Korean chicken wings served in 8 uniquely designed food stalls that look out onto the river. 

Typifying the New Nordic Kitchen which the Danes are at the forefront of pushing to the rest of the world, the popular hangout spot is a perfect way to catch a quick bite or end a day of sightseeing. 

However, for those wanting to get in on the local cuisine, Danish pastries line the windows of local bakeries, while a burgeoning coffee culture sees Danes often have a chat over a warm mug and a sweet snack. In many ways, there is still the same al fresco culture at coffee shops as in warmer places in Europe, but Danes often come prepared with a blanket over their legs and a warm coat!
