Copenhagen Street Food

For a complete cultural food experience in Denmark, head over to Papirøen Copenhagen Street Food. From the outside, it looks like an abandoned warehouse, but inside it is food truck heaven with cuisines from all over the world! Since living in Copenhagen, we have gone several times in warmer and cooler weather; and while both are great there is a very large outdoor seating area on the canal with exquisite views of the the Royal Residences, Royal Library, and the Opera House that is best enjoyed in warm sunshine! These outdoor areas can also be utilized during colder temperatures, but definitely stay near the heat lamps! There is also plenty of seating indoors as well. The photo above is taken from the outdoor seating area at Papirøen Street Food–how beautiful?!

Once inside, you’ll snake around all the different rows of food trucks until you find one you like! To name a few, there is Mexican, Italian, Korean, Chinese, Brazilian, American, Mediterranean, Middle Eastern, Danish, and even vegetarian options! The prices range from 80-120DKK. In addition to food, there are trucks serving coffee, cocktails, beers on tap, and desserts!

Our personal favorites include the Brazilian churrasco and the Chinese crispy duck, and of course- Oreo Cheesecake!

Also, it’s a popular place to go during happy hour, with a live DJ and music pumping through the whole building. It’s definitely a locals place to go, but shouldn’t be missed by tourists visiting Copenhagen!

What to do at Buckingham Palace

Going inside and taking the guided tour is obvious, but there are other things you can do on the grounds of the Buckingham Palace, see photos and captions below for some insiders tips!

Us in front of the caption for an obligatory couples’ shot 😉 Notice the flag is flying high, which means the resident is home (aka the Queen!)

No photos are allowed inside, but once you exit you will see The Garden Cafe. Take a moment, have a tea and cake and relax overlooking the perfectly manicured grounds.

Once you leave The Garden Cafe, don’t exit the grounds, walk around the gardens on a self-guided tour and take in the beauty of the palace and its surroundings.

And, before you leave, take a moment and buy a single serving of Windsor Castle ice cream. Have a seat on a bench and enjoy, whats the hurry when your surrounded by such beautiful nature?!

Eiffel Tower…

…You must go in the evening, grab a bottle of wine and a snack and enjoy the view from the lawn! Bring a blanket (dew will definitely make the ground damp!) and some plastic wine cups are clutch! We found ours at a sports/camping store in Copenhagen but most stores sell plastic wine cups. 

TIP: At 8:00pm the tower starts sparkling for 5 minutes! It does this every hour on the hour through the evening so you must see this, it’s stunning!!!!
