It’s not always sunny in Copenhagen, but when it is we want to take advantage of it, and the best way to do that is to sit with a delicious drink looking out over one of our gorgeous waterways. If that sounds good to you then there are plenty of places to find that experience. Whether you want to be right in the centre of Copenhagen or would prefer a quieter spot somewhere further out. Here are our top picks for waterside terraces:
📍Ben Websters Vej 3, 2450
This lovely restaurant is literally located on a boat. So, you can’t really get more ‘waterfront’ than Vandvid, and during the Summer months, they serve food on the deck so you can enjoy the view even more. All of the food is locally sourced, and sometimes you’re even allowed to swim in the water by the boat, which is generally very clean. You can read more about this fantastic place on the website.
