EAT in Copenhagen: noma
The chefs in Copenhagen obviously know how to be awarded with Michelin Stars. There are about 10 restaurants in Copenhagen with at least one star to their name. noma managed to do this by cooking solely Nordic gourmet cuisine. Lobster from the Faeroe Isles, Icelandic deep-sea crab and musk-ox from Greenland. And as a side serving you get all the local produce; vegetables, cheese and cereals. Refined, creative, and well worth every Krone that you'll part with. In noma, you can enjoy top-notch Nordic cuisine. The restaurant has now been named as the best restaurant in the world by the British ?Restaurant Magazine'.
SHOP in Copenhagen: Cop Ceramics
Bente Skjøttgaard, Steen Ipsen and Martin Bodilsen have known each other for quite some time and have one thing in common: they work with ceramics. Furthermore, they are based in Denmark - a country which is internationally renowned for its ceramics. But the three artists wanted more and decided to provide a platform for aspiring and established ceramicists in Frederiksberg near Copenhagen. That's exactly what they did with Copenhagen Ceramics. They are not sure what the future will bring for this platform. At the moment, however, they host ten exhibitions by contemporary ceramicists ranging from Bodil Manz, Turi Heisselberg Pedersen to Michael Geertse. Potentially Copenhagen Ceramics will turn into a pop-up installation after the scheduled show program is over. It also might become a permanent gallery. In any case, the second floor of an old factory with whitewashed walls is an inspirational frame for the colourful artworks that are presented.
STAY in Copenhagen: 71 Nyhavn Hotel
Perhaps the most romantic hotel in Copenhagen is situated where there were once easy women and sea dogs at work. Nyhavn is no longer brutal and instead is now a lovely, charming area for tourists and locals to mix. You can easily spend a day here having a drink by the canal. The hotel is a former brick storage building which has been lovingly and tastefully restored by the owners. If you manage to get away from this lover's nest, then you should definitely go to a sunny square and check out the colourful goings-on down by the canal.One night in a double room is available from approximately ?175.
SEE in Copenhagen: Superkilenred|guide Copenhagen
It's not Disneyland Paris or Phantasialand near Cologne - it's not an amusing park at all. However, Superkilen stimulates smile and brain muscles. The walk-in art project by the Copenhagen architects BIG, German landscape architects Topotek 1, Danish artists group Superflex and the communication office Help encompasses a black marketplace, a green park and a huge playground in pink - adorned by street furniture from more than 50 countries: Brazilian telephone booths, Armenian picnic tables, neon ads from the U.S. and Japanese cherry trees. The multicultural design doesn't come by chance - more than 70 percent of Nørrebro's population comes from abroad. The design concept was developed by designers in hand with the residents. The result is a walk-in art work which has been under construction since 2012. The pink square is already finished.
