Wanderlust: Nana Hagel's Copenhagen

Copenhagen has always hovered near the top of both of our travel wish-lists, and a week today we will finally set foot on Danish soil. As we eagerly put together lists of everything we will try to cram into the four days we have there, we decided that a local's perspective is always the best way to see a new city. We've been reading Nana's blog and double-clicking all of her instagram photos since before Assemblage was even the spark of an idea, so naturally we got in touch and asked if she would recommend her top ten things for us to do whilst we were exploring her city. Read on to discover Nana Hagel's Top Ten things to do in Copenhagen - and stay tuned as we take time to visit her choices whilst we are there.

Nana Hagel's Copenhagen

Mother - Great place for pizza in the Meatpacking District of Copenhagen. Go here on a Friday night and visit one of the many bars of the area afterwards, or come here for the amazing brunch buffet during the weekend.

Atelier September - This cafe is definitely one of the prettiest in Copenhagen! It's a popular spot for coffee and breakfast and the food is simple and delicious.

Keramik og glasværkstedet - A beautiful ceramics shop in central Copenhagen. Four Danish designers sell their items here, and the ceramicists work in the studio in the back of the shop.

Botanical Garden - Botanical Gardens are always inspiring to visit and the Copenhagen one is no exception! It's wonderfully peaceful and quiet in here.

Round Tower - Great architecture in the heart of the city. Go round and round till you reach the top and enjoy an amazing view of the city!

Studio - Michelin awarded restaurant serving new Nordic food with pretty interiors and even more beautiful dishes.
Coffee Collective - All coffee affectionados who visit Copenhagen should go here! Great coffee in a cool setting (Coffee Collective are all over town, my favorite spot in the one on Godthåbsvej). 

Østerberg Ice Cream - Experimental ice cream in the prettiest shop! Most of the ingredients are sources from Asia and Latin America and they're all delicious.

Glyptoteket - Beautiful Ancient Mediterranean collection. Get a coffee and a cake in their winter garden filled with palm trees and the prettiest dome ceiling.

Louisiana - About an hour by train from Copenhagen you will find Louisiana Museum of Modern Art with always interesting exhibitions and the most amazing location right by the sea.
