Copenhagen: Honeymoon

The Paris of the North

Copenhagen Honeymoon

Famous for its romantic canals and chic design Copenhagen offers honeymooners in Copenhagen (and couples wanting to go green) the ideal city location. Small enough to be strolled around, Copenhagen allows couples to go at their own pace and simply soak up the city sun and sights such as the Botanic Gardens. Shopping lovers should head to the Magasin du Nord on Kongens Nytorv, the grande-dame of Danish department stores where you'll find plenty of high-fashion labels (including Danish labels) for both men and women. For famed home interiors head to Illums Bolighus, located halfway up Strøget. In the evening take an intimate walk through Tivoli Gardens or dine in a dimly lit Dark Ages convent-converted restaurant where the waitresses wear 19th century-style aprons (Gråbrødretorv). Bastionen and Loven is also a great dining choice and one of the most romantic eateries in Copenhagen (famous for weekend brunch). Copenhagen spoils couples for choices when it comes to dining.

Further a field honeymooning couples can visit the Louisiana Museum, only half hour away by train. Laze in the gardens, or simply take in the stunning sights of the coast. Spend at day at the beach and then stop off at the Karen Blixen Museum (author of Out of Africa). For extra romance read her love letters. Honeymooning couples can also head to the exciting castle Krongborg Slot the setting for Shakespeare’s Hamlet. Enjoy perfect views of the Sound and neighbouring Sweden.

Accommodation will normally offer exciting honeymoon packages to suit every budget and there is no shortage of amazing boutique hotels. Try the Hotel Skt Petri or SAS Radisson Royal.
