On the second day of our Copenhagen trip (read part one here) we went over to Superkilen – the colourful park which I was excited to take photos of. We had to take a couple of buses to get over there and on the second one we nearly missed our stop and I got stuck in the bus doors – super embarrassing!
After that we took a bus back into town and over to Etage Projects who had an exhibition on. But it was closed! Silly me not checking as it did look pretty cool from what we could see through the windows and definitely worth checking out if you’re there.
So instead we walked through the frosty park next to Rosenberg Castle and into town to do all the SHOPPING. It was also Jack’s birthday so he was excited to treat himself.
First we went to HAY house (of course). We’re pretty familiar with HAY as we live in Bath where one of the shops is, but this was another level of amazing. We ended up going in there three times over our stay which was a little excessive, but we both couldn’t decide what to buy! Next we went to Illum which is a huge department store and I managed to find all the Christmas decorations on sale. Then we went to Stilleben which was homeware heaven, lots of ceramics (Copenhagens seem to love ceramics) and prints. We went into Weekday, Carhartt and then went into a bagel shop where they toasted our bagels so much they turned into paninis, it was actually quite nice but unexpected! We went into the HUGE Tiger (we love Tiger in the UK), and another Sostrene Green. Also a shop called Notre Dame which had SO much nice homeware for very reasonable prices.
Then we walked over to Design Delicatessen but it was closed for refurbishment, this was over in another part of the City so we just had a wander around over there and saw some more homeware shops. It was also near Playtype which was also closed but I’m sure our bank accounts were relieved about that! Then we walked down the road to Frederiksberg to the shopping centre there and had a much needed rest at a bakery. Copenhagens do bakery treats very, very well. Then onto more shopping where we went into Bahne and spent aaages looking at all the amazing homeware. Went into Magazine du Nord which had an amazing top floor full of incredible homeware. It was all quite expensive but I fell in love with some cushions from a brand called Nomess but sadly I couldn’t justify spending £70 on just one!
After this we wandered over to the colourful cinema I’d seen on Emma Jane Palin’s blog for some photo opportunities. At this point I realised that I’d lost my day travel card which was super annoying but luckily it only had a few hours left on it anyway!
This was probably my favourite day in Copenhagen, I just loved all the shops and homeware. My next post will be our final day where we went to the Botanical Gardens and Studio Arhoj!
