Copenhagen is famous for its The Little Mermaid statue, the most photographed mermaid in the world, for its delicious, open-faced smørrebrød sandwiches and for its millions of bikers.

Of course, it’s a haven for contemporary and minimalist design, as well. Plan a holiday there and you won’t be lacking intriguing locales to explore, from Michelin-starred restaurants to design studios rocking the world with their game-changing collections.



Host’s stucco brick walls and wooden framework unites simple and rustic interior design with structured architecture, and has earned the restaurant numerous international design awards, including the Best Restaurant Design Award at the Restaurant & Bar Design Awards. Its menu mixes local and Nordic food with a contemporary twist.

Vakst is full of greenery and imbued with a cosy atmosphere. Fresh, Nordic vegetables are the main affair here, but it’s also possible to enjoy a good steak, fried whole fish, or a platter of shellfish.
