La Banchina (The Pier) is my favourite cafe in Copenhagen, located beautiful on Refshaeløen, facing Copenhagen harbour, this place offer great coffee, homemade baked goods . For lunch and dinner La Banchina offers season’s best organic and/or biodynamic vegetables and seafood. (small dishes) No meat served. excellent natural wine.
If you like beautiful architecture and want to escape the city for a few hours, head north of the city along the coast. Bellevue beach is one of the most popular beaches in the Copenhagen area, on the northern outskirts of the city. The Beach is a sandy beach, approx. 700m long, and feature characteristic blue-striped lifeguard towers and a geometric kiosk, all designed by the Danish architect and furniture designer Arne Jacobsen in the 1930s. The beach is used by everybody – from young families to nudists, they all share the same space (this is Denmark after all).
If you take the coastal road up to the beach you will pass the Skovshoved Petrol Station designed by the same man. The functionalist style Petrol Station built in the early 1930s is still in operation. Whilst the pumps still functions as a petrol station, the building now functions as a cafe. The roof of the station is oval-shaped, hence the nickname ‘The Mushroom’, and is illuminated at night to highlight the beautiful designed building.
Super easy, healthy and affordable lunch and dinner takeaway. As a tourist in Copenhagen it is a nightmare to find affordable food. The popular downtown areas are flooded with crap food tourist traps and it's hard to navigate through the bullshit. Smag means "taste" in Danish and their ryebread sandwich with salmon, green pea puree and peanuts is a treat.
When in need of some inspiration The Design Museum is an obvious choice living in Copenhagen. What is not that well known to the visitors is that the Design Museum has a great poster collection not open to the general public. If you plan your visit and make an agreement with the Museum beforehand, you will be able to visit the collection archived in the attic above the Museums’ library (which is also a must-see, but expect to be ‘shushed’).
The Design Museum has since its founding in the 1890s collected posters, and the collection documents commercial, cultural, and political developments in poster history both in Denmark and around the world, from the boom in posters in the 1800s to today. And all of the stars of poster history are represented. The curator of the department will be able to find posters relevant to the subject you are interested in, and is very knowledgeable of both printing techniques and cultural history.
