STAY: First Hotel Skt Petri. Some people might say Skt Petri has lost its charm. They’re full of it. A big hotel with a boutique hotel style design, you get a spectacular view of the city, and rooms decorated in a very chic, very modern way.
SHOP: streetmachine, a phenomenal skate and streetwear store based in Copenhagen’s inner city. Founded in Paris in 1988, the Copenhagen location opened in 1996. A must hit for sneaker freakers and hypebeasts or anybody else who talks about how excited they are about the new Bape lookbooks.
SHOP: Norse Store. The home shop of Norse Projects, the famous Danish luxury brand, is in Copenhagen. One of the most eminent names in streetwear for the last few years, Norse Projects gets by on classic minimalist designs. Definitely worth checking out for those of you looking for a more grown-up look.
SEE: FC København, the city’s football (soccer to the rest of us) team. Formed in 1992, FCK are babies compared to some of the other teams in Europe, but have gotten by on scouting young talent and a game that focuses on ball movement. Pay attention to Mustafa Abdellaoue, a Moroccan-Norwegian hoped to be the future of the Norwegian national team.
