Denmark

Copenhagen is a charming city with delicious food in charming venues.  We enthusiastically recommend the Free Walking Tour of the city. We stayed at the Westin Grand, where we used our points, and used the well-run Copenhagen Metro to get around. Save your appetite for Laura’s Bakery 17 Linnesgade, a special dining spot in the culinary mecca, Torvehallerne Market. Fabulous morning pastries, kanelsnegle (intensely spiced cinnamon rolls), and Pop-Tart-like hindbaersnitters. You will never want to leave this inviting spot. Fredericks Have Restaurant in Frederiksberg, a short walk from the Metro, is delightful and has delicious food.  We ventured forth to Klampenborg to dine at Den Rode Cottage,  reached by a 17-minute train ride from Copenhagen followed by a short walk through the woods and set in a pretty forest.  When we got off the train, a man wearing a Marimekko shirt greeted us warmly and gave us directions to Den Rode Cottage. With its well-deserved Michelin star, this tiny treasure, run by two talented partners—the chef and the manager, serves creative cuisine with spectacular desserts.  Anita Klemensen and Lars Thomsen specialize in the new Nordic cuisine, which has many admirers. Dinner at Den Rode Cottage is a truly magical experience.
