WALK ALONG NYHAVN

The 17th-century waterfront canal and entertainment district Nyhavn (New Harbour) is one of the most beautiful places in Copenhagen. The canal is located near Kongens Nytorv, Royal Theatre and ‘Strøget’, Europe’s longest pedestrian street. On the North side of the harbour, the colourful old buildings have been transformed for tourists with bars, cafes, restaurants and hotels; hence being dubbed as the longest outdoor bar in Scandinavia. The South Side of the quay is the posh side consisting of large mansions, such as Charlottenburg Palace, a prestigious home in its day. If you cross the bridge you can admire the beautiful Opera House building.

RELAX AT D’ANGLETERRE

Amazing Space. That’s the name of the new relaxing area at Hotel D’Angleterre. Space Copenhagen redesigned the spa’s interiors to reflect the minimalist aesthetic of Scandinavian design. Amenities include a beautiful new hammam (steam bath), a 33-ft.-by-50-ft. indoor pool, a fitness room, five private treatment rooms and a sauna. Make sure you stop for a drink at Balthazar Champagne Bar. Made with fresh fruit and champagnes from more than 40 producers, their cocktails draw a seasoned and sophisticated crowd. (dangleterre.com)

EXPERIENCE SCANDINAVIAN DESIGN

Combing beauty, functionality and simplicity, Danish design sets the bench mark to which we can all aspire. Founded in 1890, Denmark’s largest design museum spans applied arts across the country and Scandinavia in general. The current special exhibition ‘Learning from Japan’ presents both the museum’s world-class Japanese collection, as well as Danish handicrafts, design, posters and graphic art with inspiration from Japan. Before you leave Copenhagen, on your way to the airport, visit The Blue Planet, Europe’s largest aquarium. (designmuseum.dk & denblaaplanet.dk)
