GoBoat Cruise

Everyone should treat themselves to experiencing Copenhagen from the water. Since 2014, GoBoat has been leading the way in offering you the chance to be your own captain. Now, they have launched a new concept called “GoBoat Cruise.” You sail in larger luxury boats with comfortable cushions, speakers, and a cooler for beverages.

The boats also run on electricity. The concept includes your own captain on board, so you can focus on enjoying time with family and friends. You’ll be sailed around and outside Copenhagen Harbor, wherever you wish. An insider tip is to ask the captain to find a swimming zone or sail outside the harbor where you can jump into the water.

Christiansborg Palace is not just a castle, but also the heart of Denmark’s democracy. Centrally located in Copenhagen, it houses the Danish Parliament (Folketinget), the Prime Minister’s Office, and the Supreme Court. In addition to these institutions, visitors can explore Christiansborg Palace Chapel and the impressive museum showcasing parts of Denmark’s history. It is important to check the Danish Parliament’s website for opening hours and access rules. One of the highlights is the tower, offering a fantastic view over Copenhagen. The tower symbolizes Denmark’s grandeur and proud democracy, where history meets the present in a unique architectural gem.




No summer is complete without a game of pétanque. But why not combine it with a good dinner or a delicious drink? The Swedish concept Boulebar offers just that in the heart of both Frederiksberg and Copenhagen. Boulebar Allegade is just a stone’s throw from Frederiksberg Gardens, making it a perfect combination. We love the cozy, French-inspired atmosphere. It’s truly an experience to visit this place. Their pétanque guides are particularly noteworthy; they not only share tips and tricks but also help kickstart the mood in a group. Boulebar has become extremely popular in the city, so it’s a good idea to make a reservation.

Bibliotekshaven og Botanisk have

The best metropolises in the world all offer beautiful oases that invite tranquility and coziness, and Copenhagen is no exception. Among our favorites is Bibliotekshaven, located near Christiansborg. Today, the garden is characterized by blooming flower beds and large, shady trees. Here, you can also see the sculpture of the world-renowned philosopher Søren Kierkegaard. Strangely enough, there are rarely many people in the garden, which we might ruin by including it in our guide.

You should also not miss a visit to the Botanical Garden, home to Denmark’s collection of rare plants from around the world and known for its iconic Palm House.


Creative Space

Even though Copenhagen is arguably the coolest city in the world, it’s no secret that there can be a day or two of rain. This makes it perfect to visit Creative Space. Creative Space is Denmark’s first Paint-Your-Own-Pottery café, founded in 2011 by Iben Restorff. In 2022, she passed the business on to her daughter Kira and son-in-law Karl. They started with great success on Gammel Kongevej, where they are still located, and have expanded to Østerbro, Aarhus, and Odense.

Kira and Karl have developed and expanded Creative Space based on their fundamental vision: that creativity is for everyone. It is a fun experience for all, but note that their prices are on the “overpriced” side.


Sonny has in recent years solidified its position as one of the most popular coffee bars in Copenhagen. Their focus on quality shines through with their homemade breakfast, lunch, and selection of cakes and croissants. The coffee comes from La Cabra, and you can find Sonny in both Copenhagen K and on Frederiksberg Allé. The café was created by the local couple David and Sara, and it offers not only good food and drinks but also a delightful atmosphere.

Remember to make a reservation.


Rowboats in Frederiksberg Gardens

A hidden gem in Copenhagen is the rowboat trips in Frederiksberg Gardens. Visitors can enjoy a relaxing ride on the lake with an experienced guide at the helm, while hearing stories about the park’s fascinating history. Learn about the history behind the Chinese garden and the royal family’s vacations in Frederiksberg Gardens as you glide through the beautiful landscape surrounded by green trees and tranquil water. The rowboat trips provide a lovely opportunity to see the park from a different perspective and soak in the peaceful atmosphere.
