About Guide to Copenhagen
Every time the Film Critic Guy and I travel, I turn to Google. I look for guides made by people living in the city that we’re visiting. Travel guides in newspapers online, TripAdvisor and Yelp are all good sources for information, but what I always hope to find are local bloggers sharing their favorite places to their home town. I want to know which bars they suggest to meet their friends at, where they bring their girl- or boyfriend for dinner and where they stop by for their morning coffee.
This guide is exactly that. The only difference is that this time it’s me sharing my favorite places around my home town.
I’m Swedish, but I’ve lived in Copenhagen the last seven years. Except for the first few months, my home address in Copenhagen has always been at Nørrebro. When you look around my recommendations here, you’ll see that this is where I spend the majority of my time as well. It’s my very favorite part of town, and I would always suggest you to find an AirBnb in this neighborhood if you visit Copenhagen.
Most of the places I write about include food in some way. That’s not very weird, because I work with food. I’m a self employed food photographer and recipe developer. Most of my material ends up on my Danish food blog Frk. Kræsen or Swedish version Frk. Kräsen, but I also write cookbooks and produce material for different food magazines and Danish food companies.
Being your own boss is the best, but it’s not always very fancy. So if you look for reviews from Copenhagens’s Michelin restaurants, I’m afraid that I’ll have to disappoint you. I’ve only visited one of them and that was before starting Guide to Copenhagen (and without my camera in my bag – a mistake I hopefully will not make again!).
What I can help you with, is where I go for my morning coffee, where I take my boyfriend (that’s the Film Critic Guy) for dinner and where my friends and I go for beer.
Now go out and enjoy Copenhagen!
I don’t have time to update here as much as I wish to anymore (that’s a good sign though – that just means that I’m busy with fun food photography work!). But I check in every now and then to add some information and new places, deleting old places that have closed and to make sure that the site and all my recommendations are as accurate as possible. I don’t mean to send you to places that don’t exist anymore – but if I do, I’m sorry. Hopefully there’s another great place close by to check out instead.
