Copenhagen is definitely one of the coolest and hipster-est (I know, I made that word up) city I’ve ever been to. There are amazing things happening all the time there. During our visit, there was a huge skateboard competition happening and even though the weather was unpredictable, everybody was still very lively and optimistic. We met so many friendly people who basically told us where to go and now I’m sharing it with you guys. If ever you’re going to Copenhagen in the future, I hope this can be your guide to knowing what you want to see and where you want to go.
When we went to Superkilen, a unique public skateboard park in the Norrebro district, we met Fred Mortagne– this talented photographer from France who took amazing black and white photos and he took photos of us too! Apparently he was there for the competition as well.
Christiania is definitely a place to visit. It’s actually called Freetown Christiania because it’s a self-proclaimed autonomous anarchist distric. There was a group of hippies back in 1971 who occupied some abandoned military barracks on the site and developed their own set of society rules, completely independent of the Danish government.
Inside Christiania is a mix of workshops, art galleries, music venues, and there’s even a skateboard park too. The area is open to the public so I went there with Nana but was scolded for taking pictures when you get to the middle part of the compound, specifically in the area where they have hash dealings. It’s illegal in Copenhagen but for some weird reason, they sell it inside Christiania and everyone knows about it– you just can’t take any photos. There are rules inside so make sure to follow it for your own safety! Jægersborggadem, according to Vogue, is a street where all the cool spots are. Sadly most of the shops were closed during our visit (maybe because it was raining?) but we did get to buy really cool artworks and got to see the neighborhood. Even if the weather was a bit gloomy, I kind of understand why most people go here. All the nice brands and cafes are here!
If only I can bring all these home with me. Check out this place CMYKKLD. I think I got two artworks here!Torvehallerne food market is the bomb. We wanted to try all the dishes there!!! If you love to eat, this is the place to be.
