What do you love about Copenhagen?

— So much, but to sum it up I would say the food, the architecture and shopping. It’s not a coincidence that I started at Nobis Hotel Copenhagen. The hotel offers the very best when it comes to dining experience, design and architecture.

What is your favourite season here?

— I do love all of the seasons, winter with all the Christmas decorations and markets, spring when the gardens bloom, summer with all of the many outdoors cafés and then the autumn when our parks turn yellow and red.

Why is Copenhagen such a liveable city?

— It’s the mix of people that you usually find in big cities such as Paris and New York… we have the same international vibe here in Copenhagen.

Best place for business lunch?

— Of course, our own hotel restaurant, but I can also recommend Fiskebaren in the vibrant meatpacking district or Restaurant Almanak on the harbour front.

Favourite place for a Sunday stroll?

— Around the lakes or in Fredriksberg gardens.

You have a burning desire to spend over 10,000 Kroner — which shops are you heading for?

— I would head for Illums Bolighus to buy Danish design features.

A hidden treasure for the food lover?

— Torvehallerne is a great market where you can get all kinds of things, from gourmet chocolate to spices to whatever. You can grab a nice bite there too.

Your favourite nature escape?

— I love to go to the beach all year round with my family.

Which galleries and museums do you recommend?

— Glyptoteket and the Danish Architecture Centre… both of them are just two minutes-walk from the hotel.

What would an ideal day in Copenhagen look like for you?

— Right now, the ideal day in Copenhagen is spent at the Nobis Hotel. I just started here and I have so many ideas that I want to get started with asap!
