My Place by Armin Tehrani: Copenhagen
Copenhagen is what it seems. With its famed design scene and eccentric food and restaurant culture, Copenhagen's “small big city” feel is dense with creativity and innovation across all industries. The population is driven by a sense of coolness and confidence that lets the world know why it is the happiest country in the world and that is mainly due to the people and places that push its boundaries.

The best bakery in Copenhagen. Luckily, I happen to live two blocks away and my absolute favourite treat is to get the cardamom bun, which is baked to perfection and always fresh out of the oven. Make sure to come early if you prefer not to line up.
A wonderful museum that hosts both classical works as well as more contemporary art. The back section of the building is the newest part of the architecture and makes a great space for seeing the sculptures or just to sit down and read a book.
Not literally a natural lake, but man-made bodies of water that were used as a defence tactic back in the day. The Lakes serve as a common meeting place for residents in neighbourhoods such as Nørebro, Østerbro, Indre By, and Frederiksberg. Sometimes in the cold months, they will freeze over and there is a magical environment of children playing, people skating, and maybe even some bike action on the ice.
This market is located in the centre of the city and is usually filled with tourists, but also with locals as well. You can find the best of everything from well-known restaurants and cafes, as well as fresh produce and fish. In the summers, the outdoor tables make the perfect hangout spot.
I’ve never been to Japan before, but I am convinced this is the tastiest ramen outside of Asia. With it’s quirky, yet minimal design and neon sign, this ramen bar nails it with both aesthetic and quality of its noodles, cooked in house and lead by a former Noma chef.
Andersen & Maillard
This is the spot on Saturday mornings for me where I work on a lot of my freelance stuff. It gets quite busy, but I like the vibe and the design atmosphere is on point. Also, let’s not forget the great coffee and delicious baked goods.
This little spot serves incredible natural wine from all over Europe by the glass or bottle. Not only is everything high in quality, the price is at a standard of 50 DKK per glass (which definitely runs below the average in Copenhagen). A great atmosphere whether you want to feel a vibe before going out or having a cozy night inside.
A beautiful street filled with houses of all colours. I love to walk or bike down here on my way home from work and fantasize about eventually owning one of the homes.
