Whether you’re feeling thrifty or thirsty, our guide for a mindful 24 hours in Denmark’s capital covers the lot.

Best place to grab a coffee

As a certified B Corp member, Coffee Collective is committed to using business as a force for good. Along with making promising Carbon Emission and Transparency pledges, the company takes its responsibility to its partners in coffee farming and trading very seriously. Swing by for the most delicious espresso and a pastry.

Stop for a quick bite

Reffen is an organic street food market and urban area for start-ups, innovation and creativity. The stalls use compostable food service, along with organic and locally sourced ingredients whenever they can. Waste is sorted so that it can be reused as much as possible, too.

Go vintage shopping

Located in central Copenhagen, Time’s Up Vintage is the place to find archival designer fashion and vintage classics dating back to the ‘60s. Chanel, Hermès, Vivienne Westwood…you name it, this boutique has got it.

Head for dinner

BÆST is passionate about raw milk cheeses, artisanal butchery and award-winning pizza. The restaurant is certified 60-90% organic and has its own dairy where it makes burrata and ricotta. Just 50km away is its ‘Farm of Ideas’, where chefs and farmers work daily to respectfully sow, care for and harvest vegetables.

A green hotel to sleep

Found in the heart of the buzzy Vesterbro area, this charming boutique hotel blends a penchant for Parisian interiors with “a Danish sense of space and time”. Focused on doing things the green way, Coco Hotel is covered by sustainable energy from Coco’s own solar park. All towels and bed linens are made from organic cotton and you’ll find no plastic bottles in the mini bar. Plus, the entire building was fairly recently renovated with energy and water saving solutions.
