• As some of guys probably have seen in my IG-stories, my graduation ceremony took place this week. 🎓 In September, I already knew I obtained my LL.M. degree, but after Tuesday it finally feels official. Thank you all for the heart-warming messages & support ❤️ It’s time for a new chapter in my life! And ofc, I’ll keep taking pictures, since it’s one of the things that make me most happy 😊• | Clingendael, Den Haag
• Even tho there are still 41 days left until Christmas, I really do admire the decorations in this pretty early stage! 🤗🎄 Is the city/village you’re living in already packed with lots of lights & christmas trees? :) • | Delft, The Netherlands
• Now that the colder days are coming up, I’ll be spending more time indoors. Still taking advantage of my sisters’ Netflex account up to now (🌝), so if there are any good movies/series I should defintely watch, feel free to share! • | Delft, The Netherlands
• Koi fish, bonsai trees & an oasis of serenity... my favourite gardens in the world are definitely the Japanese ones🌿☺️ • | Japenese garden Clingendael, Den Haag
• Back in the days, people often named their property when there didn’t happened to be streetnames yet, or simply because someone was proud of his/her building (and ofc, money-wise). I spotted quite a lot of them in the city centre of Delft & they were usually the most lovely buildings! If you were able to give your house a name... what would you call it? 🏠🤗 • | Delft, The Netherlands
• During one of those extraordinary autumn days when walking outside without a jacket was actually possible.. 🧐🤗 (Photo credits: @giugoh) // Even today, temperatures around 18 degrees were reached in Holland. Fall season has confused me many times this year.. Does this mean we’ll get a super cold winter? 😱 • | Clingendael, The Hague

To get straight to the point: Copenhagen surprised me in many ways. The city seems to offer something for everyone: from an incredible amusement park to a fairytale-like castle, Copenhagen’s got it all. My four-day stay in the city was too short to cover all the sights I wanted to see, but I did managed to include the ones on top of my list. And then again, this gives me even more reasons to visit the city again in the future 😉

I’ve created a list with 10 highlights of places/viewpoints I would definitely recommend including in your next trip to Copenhagen! Here we go:

1) Glyptoteket

This one-of-a-kind art museum situated in the heart of the city is definitely one of my favourite spots in Copenhagen. Do check out their stunning winter garden and grab a drink at the café!

2) Rosenborg castle

Wanna feel like a prince/princess for a day? Spend a morning or afternoon strolling through this magical castle. Don’t forget to check out the hidden treasure room to admire the gorgeous Royal jewels. Rosenborg castle is surrounded by King’s Garden, where you’ll spot the very picturesque rose garden.

3) Botanical Garden

One of the things I love to do when visiting buzzing cities is escaping to somewhat quieter areas. The big botanical garden situated close to the University of Copenhagen offers the perfect solution! Entry is free, but you do need to pay if you want to check out the Palm house.

4) Illum rooftop

I stumbled upon this place by chance when I was on my way for breakfast before exploring the city. As I walked past the Illum shopping mall, I noticed that there happened to be several rooftop restaurants at the upper floor. Right when the mall opened, I made my way up and got treated with this lush view. Definitely a great place to grab some food any time of the day accompanied with lovely views of one of the busiest streets of Copenhagen.

5) Tårnet Tower

One of the best place to catch panoramic views of the city is the tower of Christianborg Palace. The best thing: it’s totally free of charge! The elevator takes 40 persons at the time to the upper level, so no need to climb many stairs 😉

6) Magstræde

This cobbling street is one of the oldest streets of Copenhagen and super picturesque: look at those beautiful colourful buildings!

7) Frederiks Kirke

This church is also called the Marble church for its late Baroque architecture. During opening hours, it’s possible to take a look inside to admire the impressive dome.

8) Boat tour

If you’re only staying in Copenhagen for a few days, a great way to see plenty of sights within only 1 hour is booking a boat tour. I chose the one from the company called ‘Netto’. Their boarding point is close to Christianborg palace and the tour is very reasonable priced. The boat will also sail along the Little Mermaid!

9) Strøget

A street you almost can’t miss during your trip to Copenhagen: it’s one of the longest pedestrian streets with plenty of shops for all kinds of budgets!

10) Nyhavn

Last but not least: the popular harbour district you’ll spot in all the tour guides and postcards. Probably the most touristy area, but a must-visit to complete your trip! The colourful houses will make you fall in love with the city right away…

Lots of love,

Manisha ♥
