The capital of the world’s oldest kingdom has undergone significant gastronomic and architectural developments in recent years. We review the best places to visit during a short stay in cutting-edge Copenhagen.
Copenhagen is replete with restaurants offering excellent cuisine and beautifully conceived interiors. After a day of exploring the city, these converted waterside warehouses reward visitors with dinner in a choice of restaurants. New location 108, has quickly won acclaim from critics. A spin-off from the world-famous Noma, the restaurant that put Nordic cuisine on the map, 108 focuses on locality as well as seasonality. Specialising in pickling and fermenting, it has already earned a Michelin star. Meanwhile, in the 18th century warehouse that once housed Noma, diners will find Barr.
New Copenhagen showroom Menu Space is a must for design-conscious visitors to the city. Design firm Menu collaborated with renowned Norm Architects to create this elegant space, combining a showroom, office and café. Here, visitors can enjoy a cup of coffee with their design inspiration. It is situated in Nordhavn, an area now flourishing following the conversion of The Silo by COBE architects and recent launch of The Krane. If time allows, we recommend visiting the West Indian Warehouse. Once used for storing sugar and rum, today it is home to The Royal Cast Collection; over 2,000 plaster sculptures.
