A day with secret ingredients of culture through time and true Danish Hygge! The Adentity team decided to take the train over to our neighbouring country for an inspiring day with a journey of culture, inspiration and culinary delights. Follow us on our handpicked tour of the gems of the Danish capital!
A hygge breakfast
Through cobbled streets with its colourful houses, we started our day with breakfast in the spirit of true Danish Hygge. We went to the warm and inviting “Café no 11”, charmingly located at Sankt Annæ Plads in the heart of the city. Served light natural food and artisan coffee in an Instagram friendly surrounding, we enjoyed a delicious breakfast in the sun.
Copenhagen is a great city for art lovers and home to internationally acknowledged art museums, as well as boosting some fantastic themed and historic museums. We went to visit Glypoteket and their newest exhibition Animals and People featuring internationally acclaimed contemporary artist Tal R. Glypoteket was founded by the Carlsberg brewer Carl Jacobsen and contains two main departments of art – the department of antiquities and the modern department. It was a delightful stroll through 35 000 years of art and history in a beautiful architectural surrounding.
A cosy stroll through the best parts of Copenhagen took us to a gastronomic experience at Gasoline Grill in the sunny weather. Gasoline Grill is originally an old gas station that was transformed into a real American burger joint. It is said to have one of the best burgers in the city and it definitely lived up to its reputation. They have mastered a fantastic burger. Grab one for the go or sit down, either way, we promise you won’t regret it.
Inspiring retail concepts
Next on our tour we headed to two interior design shops, HAY House and Beau Marché. HAY’s concept store houses two floors filled with colours, shapes and design at Strøget. They create contemporary furniture and design with an eye for modern living. From danish design to a nugget of nugget of Frenchnes, Beau Marché. In the back yard between Kongens Nytorv, Strøget, and Gothersgade, which is full of old houses, lovely little cafés and restaurants, the hidden gem Beau Marché is located. A combined French café and a stylish interior design shop. Two shops that truly inspire with their different retail approaches.
From contemporary design to contemporary art! Next up was Kunsthal Charlottenborg, one of the largest exhibition spaces for contemporary art in Europe located by Nyhavn. Here you’ll experience exhibitions and events with a strong international focus. We went to se Afgang, the annual exhibition for the graduates from the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts’ Schools of Visual Arts.
Our final destination was Apollo bar and the beautiful surroundings of Nyhavn. There we enjoyed the last rays of sun before heading back to Malmö, filled with creativity and feeling truly refreshed.
