Travel blogging takes us to many places we feel an immediate connection with. This happened recently when we took a trip to Copenhagen. We instantly fell in love with the city’s friendliness, unique atmosphere and outlook on life. Not to mention its extraordinary architecture, hip nightlife, fashionable districts and world renowned culinary scene. Here’s our photographic journey through the cosmopolitan Danish Capital:
Christianshavn is a very trendy district of Copenhagen and with its canals and colourful gabled houses it has a feel of Amsterdam. Head there for top-end restaurants and cool cafes and shops.

Nyhavn is an iconic area of Copenhagen and is a great place to kick back at one of the attractive bars or restaurants.
This is the iconic Nyhavn scene which many visitors to Copenhagen capture. It’s can be touristy but it’s an unmissable part of the city.
One of the many colourful bars in Nyhavn, each building is painted brightly in a different colour which makes the area very picturesque.
Christiania is a self-governing free state in Copenhagen which is famous for its alternative culture. Some of the murals and graffiti are superb and the area is surreally photogenic.
This colourful mural can be seen at the entrance of the hippy free state Christiania.
The Meatpacking District was inspired by New York’s trendy area of the same name. You’ll find abandoned butcheries and former meat processing plants turned into ultra-cool hang outs and stylish restaurants.
Karriere is a popular place in the Meatpacking District. It’s a cocktail bar, restaurant and art gallery all rolled into one.
