Architect-made swim repos at the beach; it’s beautiful in all seasons.

Eat at Stedsans

An urban garden rooftop restaurant with local seasonal produce.

The Botanical garden

A lovely old greenhouse in the city centre surrounded by a nice botanic park.

It’s very close to Rundetårn (The Round Tower), which is a classic tourist attraction; you walk all the way up to get a great view over Copenhagen.
