Last week it was time for KOLIFLEUR to fly out to Denmark, Copenhagen. The city of beautiful people, the Little Mermaid, Hans Cristian Andersen and lots of bikes. But also the place to be for really good food and Danish Design.
After the long drive (across this beautiful bridge) we found ourselves in Copenhagen. Staying in a small, but really nice decorated apartment in Norrebro; a very nice neighborhood just outside the city centre. It is quiet but there a little bars and restaurants everywhere.
Of course after a long day the KOLIFLEUR team had to explore and find something nice to eat. Walking through the streets we found ourselves on Stefansgade. A very nice streets with little shops and plenty of restaurants and bars to choose from. From Stefansgade we turned onto the Jaegersborgagde, a great place to be for the young and hip people of Copenhagen (and definitely worth visiting if you are there).
Eventually we visited the Ravnsborggade, a streets just outside the city centre. It has it all and has become the street for getting a bite to eat, we especially recommend 20A, a very nice restaurant with a daily changing menu, Vinstuerne (nr. 19), a very good wine bar also serving food for a great comfort meal and Kung Fu (nr. 16), a nice place to sit down for some sushi and asian fusion. You can also find some antique and vintage shops that have it all.
After checking out the Copenhagen Design Museum the hunt for some nice Scandinavian stuff took its flight. We visited several nice shops and vintage stores. Copenhagen has all kind of vintage stores and boutiques, some better than others but there is something for everyone.
Now for the real deal! Copenhagen has all kinds of flea markets some big and some small. During the flea market season there are several open air markets that return every Saturday and/or Sunday. All of them are worth visiting, the Copenhagen people are nice and friendly. The most fun are the small markets that neighborhoods organise themselves, most of the time they are only a few stands but worth visiting.
After a weekend of driving around and visiting many markets and stores we found ourselves on the way back home. Of course with a bunch of Danish design!!
