An Instagram photo journey through Copenhagen

An Instagram photo journey through Copenhagen

Last week I was in Copenhagen for Wondercool winter festival and I just wanted to show you a quick peek at what I was up to. Despite the cold, Copenhagen turned out to be one of my favourite cities in Europe (bold statement I know!) and Wondercool was incredible so I’ll be writing all about that soon.

Sometimes a picture speaks a thousand words and I hope you enjoy this photo journey through Copenhagen…

1. Fashion blogger, Kjetil, approves of the oysters at Restaurant KUL.

2. Plenty of coffee and cake stops were needed to warm up!

3. Stone age food served at Palaeo in Torvehallerne food market.

4. This was a ‘healthy hot dog’ from Copenhagen’s street stall DOP where you can find healthy, organic junk food. Winner winner.

5 & 6. The traditional open sandwich is still a firm lunchtime favourite in Copenhagen. Cafes, restaurants and bars line the counters with open sandwiches with a huge variety of tasting toppings.

7. Sipping hot chocolate while watching the world pass by.

Carlsberg logo used to be a swastica

The Carlsberg logo has changed a few times through the years but did you know that the second Carlsberg logo was a Swastika? This was long before it became a Nazi symbol and was originally an Indian symbol which literally means ‘good’ and represents wealth and prosperity.

I love the photo of the water frozen over. We went to Copenhagen in November for a friend's birthday and I fell in love with the place - amazing food and Danish people are so friendly and warm!

Beautiful photos! The first one is my favorite as that seems to be a popular picture to take in the summertime with the sun shining and the boats lined up against the colorful buildings. Love the winter perspective with the ice!
