Most Colorful Spots in Copenhagen

January 9, 2018

I am continuing the blog posts from our European adventure by sharing the most colorful spots in Copenhagen. We flew in from London for three nights of exploring, eating and shopping (the design stores were INSANE) in this cozy, bike-friendly, capital city. Before I share the most colorful spots in the city, let’s talk about where to STAY:

WHERE TO STAY:
The Scandic Front was the PERFECT home base for exploring. It was located just a block from Nhyaven, offered beautiful canal views, and had an insanely amazing breakfast buffet. It’s part of the Scandic Hotel Family.

One of my favorite things about the Scandic Front was there’s so much to explore within walking distance. Check out my video for a complete recap of our adventures in the city, then read on to see my top three colorful spots.

TOP 3 COLORFUL SPOTS IN COPENHAGEN

1. Tivoli Gardens
The second oldest operating amusement park in the world, Tivoli Gardens opened in 1843. Everything is so close together in Copenhagen, so it was an easy walk. The moment you arrive, you notice the cozy old world feel of the park. Case in point – they have actual fire pits where you can roast marshmallows while snuggling under blankets!

2. Nyhavn
My second must-see in Copenhagan is Nyhavn. The neighborhood was only one block from our hotel, so we were able to walk through and admire the colorful buildings every day. We discovered Kira CPH, a beautiful textile shop, and Graham indulged on a chocolate and sprinkle-covered waffle on a stick! He said that it tasted as amazing as it sounds. 

3. Superkilen
Another one of our favorite spots in Copenhagen was Superkilen, a public park near one of the city’s most diverse neighborhoods. The colors, patterns and graphic elements throughout the park are a photographers dream! I mean look at this rainbow spiral bike rack….!
