Match Made in HEL: Designer Henrik Vibskov’s Guide to Copenhagen

8.7.2016 at 06:30
See Danish fashion designer Henrik Vibskov’s top tips for visiting Copenhagen, the city of more bicycles than people.

Vibskov suggests getting to know beautiful Copenhagen also outside the hustle and bustle of the city centre. Keep these three places in mind when visiting the city:


“You can rent a little boat down here, row around a bit and look romantic. Then, why not walk up to Christiania and have a cheap falafel for a snack. I would just hang out a bit here, in this area. No need to go to the inner city.”

Statens Museum for Kunst

“Statens Museum for Kunst is like the main museum in Copenhagen. On weekends, they have a kids' workshop open. I go there with my kids, and we build strange things with glue guns, matches and ice cream sticks. I think it's like a little, fun universe, and you can paint and do all kinds of things.”

H.C. Ørstedsparken

“In the middle of the city there’s a park with a tiny lake. It’s called H.C. Ørstedsparken. There's also an old train bridge construction going over, it's very romantic. The park is a good hangout, and that’s why there is always a lot going on… Kids playing, people sunbathing and having parties.”
