If you are planning a trip to Copenhagen this summer, you won’t be disappointed, or hungry! The capital city is not only beautiful, with many sights and attractions, but it is also a gastronomic paradise. There is an abundance of amazing eateries and fantastic local dishes for tourists to try out.

Copenhagen is considered to be forward-thinking in many aspects, and food is certainly one of these things! From top-class restaurants offering a modern take on traditional fare to contemporary cafes that dish up “recycled” meals. It really is an interesting place to tantalize your taste buds.

Not only are the things we eat wonderful and varied, but so are the places where we dine. Some of the best restaurants can be found in hotels. So, you really don’t have to stumble too far from your accommodation to find a decent place to eat. You can view a great range of these hotels on But for a more casual dining experience, the city has a fabulous selection of delis, street food stalls, cafes and bars.

You must start off your first day in the city with a cup of freshly brewed coffee and a danish pastry. My favourite is the snegl (or snail in English). These are sweet treats made from a buttery cake mixture flavoured with cinnamon and shaped in a spiral (hence its name). And that’s not all. There is a beautiful layer of icing sugar on top. They are sweet, spicy, buttery and totally worth the calories!

You can’t come to Copenhagen without trying our beloved smørrebrød (or open sandwiches). (more…)
