Copenhagen Fashion Week may be well behind us but the city’s excitement lives on. Copenhagen, the capital city of Denmark, is more lively than the fashion capitals and the top tourist destinations of the world. For those heading to Copenhagen, you’ll feel right at home and not because of the restaurant and store chains you’re familiar with. The allure and moderately fast pace locales offer excitement for those seeking the rush of the city’s hustle and bustle while the calm and relaxation hidden within the city bring a zen that’s much needed on your vacations and work trips. Skip London, Paris, Rome, and Berlin, if you’re looking for a fun place to journey to for a memorable vacation then bet on Copenhagen.

We’re familiar with the city, but we’ll admit that we’re not experts. We turned to a great designer and good friend of ours, Henrik Vibskov, for the best the city has to offer in art, culture, booze, and hanging out.
Best Restaurants:
Noma - of course 
Manfreds - in Jægersbrogade, little snacks for lunch.

Best Places to Relax:
Out on the water in a boat, or svimming at the Kastrup Søbad – a wood construction out in the sea like Helgoland in Germany, same thing but bigger and with a sauna
