Copenhagen Post Christmas

We flew BOS to CPH on SAS. We bought economy tickets and bid on upgrades and won both routes. The aircraft is an A321 NX narrow body. There are 22 seats in Business, 12 in Premium and the rest econo. Econo is tight. There are 3 rest rooms for P and E. I would not pay for Business as it's cramped up there. P was the same as Business on AA for example. Service was to the point efficient and at times, stern. Flights were on time. We did use the Priority Club in BOS (Air France) which fine. The SAS Club in Copenhagen was nice but food choices marginal. The coffee bar is worth it all, fantastic barista.

We booked an Air BnB in Vesterbro and booked Villa Copenhagen using FHR bonus program through AX Platinum. Both were great. We loved Vesterbro having been before. Villa Copenhagen is x from Tivoli, a lively place we only enjoyed from the outside.

We walked everywhere; 12-22k miles a way. We had coffee at the top spots including Prologue and Wild Horse. We had baked goods at the top spots including Hart, Juno and Andersen Maillard. Every coffee and every pastry treat was over the top. Our top dining spots:

  • Aamman 1921- Smörrebrod

-Fiskebar - oysters and mussels

-Restaurant Barr - tasting menu

-Breakfast at Villa Copenhagen

-Sing Tehuis - tea service with edible tea leaves (don't ask, just go)

-Hart Bakery for Cardamon Croissant

We went back to Selma which was our favorite in 2019. 2 out of 4 courses was good. 2 fell short. It was their last day before their break, to be fair. Service and wine and schnaaps were fantastic and the vibe perfect.

We loved our NYE treat at Sofia Bathhouse. 95.00 USD for 2.5 hours of sauna, steam and hamman plus bubbles and chocolate, This was heaven.

I enjoy cold exposure for wellness so had a dip at Kalvebod Bølge. Other Danes were in the 5 c harbour swimming and plunging. It was a highlight of my trip for sure.

We love Copenhagen; no traffic, bike friendly, children and dogs are beloved, clean air, clean streets, clean harbour, mineral water at water stations along with still, super friendly, great architecture, bike lanes and respect. Cannot wait to return!

This all sounds so enticing, thanks for sharing. I've just started researching Copenhagen for a future trip and noticed the coffee and pastries are praised a lot.

Great report! Brings back wonderful memories. We just had a quick exposure on our way to Paris in 2004. We took the train into downtown from the airport, walked all over for about five hours, then back to the airport. It certainly made an impression, and would be great to go back for more time.
