Copenhagen is an amazing city filled with tons of things to see, do, eat and drink. We have put together a guide of some less known places in the city that are all worth a visit (and less touristy as Nyhavn and Strøget).
1. CENTER OF PHOTOGRAPHY
Most people know of the art museums Louisiana and The National Gallery of Denmark, but Copenhagen is a mecca of art and design. One rather unknown museum is the Center of Photography (Fotografisk Center) in the Meatpacking District on Vesterbro. Located on one of the smaller streets, it is fairly hidden and not a place you would just walk by randomly. The Center of Photography focuses on Nordic contemporary photography and other camera based media.
2. FOOD REVOIUTION – RUNNING SMØRREBRØD
That Danes love their smørrebrød is no secret. The ryebread can be combined with a thousand different toppings and more fusion versions just keep coming. A very special smørrebrød food market is a Danish take on running sushi, only now of course we’re talking about running smørrebrød. Sit down for lunch at the restaurant Food Revolution where delicious plates of different types of smørrebrød will be served on the rolling belt next to you – just grab the ones that intrigue you the most.
How does an architectural masterpiece with fantastic art by the water sound? ARKEN holds one of Scandinavia’s lagest contemporary art collections and features artists from all over the world. During the summer you can bring your swimsuit and enjoy the sun on the beach and during the colder months you can stay warm inside the cosy café and restaurant.
