When I first arrived in Copenhagen I struggled to figure out what to call the water channel that divides the island of Amager from central Copenhagen. It is counter intuitive, but the name the Danes have for it is the harbor, and a harbor it is....

Vandkunsten 5, 1467 København, Denmark
This tiny street is one of the oldest in Copenhagen and is, in my opinion, also the city's most charmingly beautiful little lane. Lined by historic houses painted in distinctly Scandinavian hues, Magaestrade is charming no matter what time of year...

Sortedam Dossering 9, st, th, 2200 København, Denmark

Dronning Louises Bro, 1371 København, Denmark
I love exploring a new city by running through its parks and streets. And early morning runs offer a whole new perspective on a city. In Copenhagen, the path around the city's five lakes is a perfect four-mile running loop. The water is so still...

I don't really know quite how to describe this place. It is full of character and quite unusual. The shop, situated at Ny Adelgade 12, was opened in 1987 and currently serves as a studio, a boutique, and an exhibition space. If you're in the area...

Kultorvet 5, 1175 København, Denmark
The Hvide Lam has been where it is forever. A tiny bar, it often has live jazz on evenings with crusty old performers playing the classics. Out of all the jazz bars in Copenhagen, this is my favorite. In part, because it's not so much a jazz bar...
