Copenhagen

It's no wonder that Copenhagen has been named the world's most liveable city several times. Copenhagen is characterized by its proximity to the water, impressive architecture and extensive parks. The city simply has everything your heart desires! And you can explore it all comfortably on the back of a bike in one of the best cycling cities in the world.

dear(travel)diary,

Copenhagen blew me away! In my personal city ranking, the city has therefore easily catapulted itself into first place. Not only did I find Copenhagen beautiful, but it's also a city I would live in!

Why? It's all in the mix! In Copenhagen, you're close to the sea and the forests. There are beautiful old and industrial buildings. There are lots of parks to relax in, but you can also go out. There are gourmet restaurants and stylish bars, but also cozy cafés and quaint pubs. Much of the city is modern, but it also has a historical touch. In short, Copenhagen has everything in one place.

As you can see, I love the city! So if you're thinking about where to go on your next city trip, then definitely put Copenhagen on your list! You certainly won't be disappointed!

Accomodation

We booked a room in Didac and Evi's private house via Airbnb for our time in Copenhagen. The room wasn't very big or luxurious, but we had everything we needed. Our hosts were also both very nice. You can feel at home with them. We were also able to park the car for free in their street and take the metro into the city.

  • 2 nights Airbnb in total: 94€
  • Bike rental day 1: 12€ p.p.
