We here at Grana not only travel the globe to find the world’s best fabrics, but we also just travel a lot, period. Traveling has, and always will be, a core part of the Grana culture. With our HQ located in Hong Kong, the world is at our feet and we’re encouraged to explore it as often as we can!
The Grana family often tags on a vacation day here and there, turning weekends into adventures, getaways and learning experiences. Each time someone leaves for a trip, they bring back savvy tips; but what good is a tip if not shared? So, we’re making our tips, your tips.
For this edition of our travel column, we’ve gotten the inside scoop on Copenhagen, Denmark from Alin, our Photography Producer.
- Rent a bicycle. There are plenty of city bike stations that you can pick up and drop off bikes for 20 kroner (around 3 USD).
- Copenhagen Card. The card includes free transportation, discounts at restaurants and free entry to most of the Museums in the city (even the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art – which is a must see!!) The price of the card depends on how long you want it for but to give you an idea -a 24 hour card is around 60 USD.
Food & Bev
- Mad & Kaffe (Amagerbro) – it’s Breakfast food served in small tapas style (you get a menu to tick off dishes you want. Tick. Tick. Tick)
- Nabo (Christianshavn) – this was an accidental find, it’s ‘Modern Danish’ fine dining without breaking the bank (and omg that bread and freshly whipped butter)
- Brus (Norrebro) – Craft Beers + Simple Food (and a cool interior of course)
- Wear comfortable shoes, there will be a lot of walking / cycling – those danes are so active.
- Hot tip: Pin places on your google map so you can group them in areas and hit them all up at the same time.
- Most of the attractions are bundled in close enough areas, like Nyhavn, Ofelia Plads, King’s Garden and the Botanical Garden. Nyhavn is usually packed with tourists but you can grab a beer and snack and head over to Ofelia Plads (a 5-minute walk) near the Danish Playhouse by the water – it’s not too crowded and they usually have free entertainment.
