EAT
Geist
Danish cuisine having a moment, and if you can’t decide where to eat, we suggest Geist, where you’ll find dishes like potato mash with brown stone crab and salted butter. For dessert, try the salted wasabi cream toffee, which sounds strange, but is absolutely amazing.

SEE
Louisiana Museum of Modern Art
This contemporary art museum may be a 45-minute train ride from Copenhagen, but trust us, it’s worth it. Not only is it in a breathtaking seaside setting, it has one of the best collections of contemporary art that includes pieces by Pablo Picasso, Lucien Freud and Alexander Calder.
