48 Hours in Copenhagen
I have flown many international flights, but very, very, very few of them have been in anything better than economy. For our honeymoon, we decided to upgrade to the business flights on SAS. We found a flight that had an overnight stop in Copenhagen, which for most people might be inconvenient, but Leo studied in CPH and so it kind of happened to be a perfect 48 hours in the city.
I’m pretty sure business class is the only way to travel. The service is amazing, the seats lay down, the movies are on demand, and the champagne flows like water (which is probably the best part).
When we got to CPH, we were pretty jet lagged, and we arrived very early in the morning. We took the train to the center of town and checked into the Hotel D’Angleterre. Although we couldn’t check in quite yet, the hotel gave us access to the spa, which is basically better than ok 🙂
After we got cleaned up, they offered us a glass of complimentary Pol Roger champagne, and then we were off to spend a bit of time exploring Kobenhavn. We walked the canals of Nyhavn, took some photos along the water, and made it back to the hotel.
It’s just as beautiful and scenic as you’d expect.
When we got back to the hotel, they took us up to a room, which had been upgraded.
We weren’t expecting this, but oh my gosh, the suite was amazing.
Hotel D’Angleterre upgraded us to a 1 bedroom, 1.5 bath suite with a full living room. The room had fresh peonies and a beautiful red wine waiting for us with a personalized note. The room had full floor-to-ceiling windows along the living room and bedroom that looked onto Nyhavn. The bathroom was modern and exquisite with beautiful marble furnishings.
And I can’t forget the massive Bang & Olufson tv’s. Leo was obsessed with these.
Let me tell you – I knew honeymooning would be A-OK after this.
After we dropped our bags, we decided to head out for dinner. We found a cute little place called Pluto’s that had been recommended by the hotel. We couldn’t quite figure out how to order, but it was an incredible find. Everything was family style, and the flavors were not like the typical Nordic food that you might expect.
It was trendy and fresh.
One of the most memorable dishes was the Brillat Savarin lobster roll…. oh mon dieu!
I had been to Copenhagen in 2008 to visit one of my absolute favorite au pair’s, Tina. My family grew up with Danish au pairs for years, and I was very close with many of them. But, Tina was definitely closest with our family.
Unfortunately, I would have loved to spend more time in DK to visit old au pairs and to meet their families. I hope that we’ll be able to visit again soon, because Denmark is an amazing country! Until next time CPH…
Next on the docket: Paris!
