Winter lovers, welcome to Copenhagen! This city is the perfect spot for all of you who don’t really like sweating during summer and prefer lower temperatures. Snowy days, and Copenhagen has lots of these, will be a great setting for cosy and romantic photos for Instagram. If you do like summer, don’t worry – the weather is sunny between June and August and you’ll be able to enjoy public beaches in this city.
The capital of Denmark has had this title since the 15th century, and before that, it was a small fishing village founded by Vikings. Today, it is also the largest city in the country and it’s located on the eastern coast. Copenhagen has been ranked high among the best cities to live in – its main advantages are plenty of open spaces and city planning that allows you to walk or ride a bike almost anywhere.
This Danish city is rich in history and culture, which brings many tourists to Denmark every year. There are many interesting districts to see, with colourful buildings and cultural monuments, as well as fantastic architecture. When in Copenhagen, make sure you don’t miss the Amalienborg Palace, the Marble Church, Christianshavn, the Church of Our Saviour, the Rosenborg Castle with its beautiful garden, and much more. Of course, the Inner City, or the historic centre of Copenhagen, has a large number of landmarks you should definitely put on your map.
Once you’re done with sightseeing, you’ll probably start looking for a place to work from except for your home. A bunch of great coworking spaces are waiting for you – some of them are in the very centre of the city! Some spaces you should check out are Greencubator, KPH Projects, The Camp and Republikken. Many of them will support you and your business if you’re trying to create value that’ll contribute to their community. It can be social or cultural, even green! Some spaces have motivational phrases on their walls, some have a totally retro or totally rustic and comfy design, and some even offer free advice for those who come for the first time. If you would like a discount, you can get a free week trial for some spaces around the world with Croissant.
It’s good to know that digital nomads have evaluated Copenhagen as a happy place! The only thing they don’t like seems to be the weather, but it’s not a problem for those who enjoy colder days. According to Copenhagen visitors, the quality of life is good, they love the city’s walkability and the fact that everyone speaks English and is friendly to foreigners. You have to admit this is an important thing! You don’t wanna live somewhere where people will mistreat you. There are also great places to work from, free WiFi all over the city, and you feel totally safe at any time of the day.
Before you decide to go to Copenhagen, make sure you’ve prepared your budget for this trip. We can’t lie – it’s not the most affordable city to live in. However, if you have a steady and well-paid job, you shouldn’t worry. Start packing… and make some room for warm, cosy sweaters in your suitcase!
