Copenhagen: micro guide

Copenhagen might be the coolest city in Europe. The Danish capital boasts more hip cafes, concept stores and coffee joints than you can shake a stick at. And its residents may be the best looking race in the world…irrelevant but good to know, right?

Book your stay at CPH Living. Essentially a floating hotel, this stylish bolthole basks in classical Danish design. Think white walls, immaculate designer furniture and porthole windows.

To fuel up for the day ahead, take a morning amble over the river to Dyrehaven (Deer Park) for a great Danish breakfast. Previously voted for best breakfast/brunch by AOK, this wooden-clad joint serves up traditional dishes executed with a welcome contemporary edge. The avocado and cheese sandwich comes highly recommended and the eggs benedict will not let you down.

Shopping in this city is pretty dangerous. When The Manual visited, a leisurely browse turned into a full-on spree so attempt to be as discerning as possible with your purchases. Some of the best menswear stores include native streetwear brand Wood Wood on Grønnegade and multi-label boutique Goggle PRIM on Elmegade in the hip area of Nørrebro, where you’ll find Swedish and international brands with bags of street design credibility, such as AO. Acne fans should continue a little further down the street to the Acne Archive store for a mixture of sample and archive pieces from the Swedish brand for up to 70% off.

The Manual recommends spending the rest of the day in Nørrebro, where some of the hippest locals while away the evening hours drinking, socialising and scooting from watering hole to watering hole by bicycle. Beeline for Jægersborggade. This awesome street boasts some of the city’s best dining and drinking hotspots. If you arrive before 6pm, stop in at the Keramiker workshop and check out Inge Vincents amazing hand-thrown ceramics. The lop-sided paper-thin porcelain designs appear to have been thrown and left to set.

For a meal to remember, head to Relae. The menu is deliciously Danish, inventive and seasonal; The Manual couldn’t get enough of the cheese Blå kornblomst and green herbs. End the day in typical Copenhagen-ite style, sprawling outside of pubs and in parks with a few friends and beers. Café Lyst is a great option if it’s hot out and Nørrebroparken is rife with laid-back congregations of trendy (seriously good looking) locals.
