This week's local, Karen Sofie Egebo, has lived in 26 different places- she's a professional nomad. And as a very fitting occupation, @kseberlin is also a journalist. At the moment she lives, explores, and documents the beautiful Copenhagen, which "will alway be closet thing to home." Although, after spending some time in Germany Karen told me she "would like to inject some of Berlin’s raw madness into glossy, neat Copenhagen." I think we can all get on board with that.

Good morning! @kseberlin here, I'm ready to take you on a week's tour of Copenhagen. First stop is the lakes; they cut inner city from the areas of Østerbro, Nørrebro and Frederiksberg like the end of a palm, and they are well worth a stroll. The buildings around are beautiful, and you are likely to do a bit of people-sightseeing too. For this is also a sort of mini-catwalk... Welcome to Copenhagen!

At Dyrehaven (check geotag for exact location), they serve up traditional Danish food in hipster disguise; try the chicken salad on a fat slice of rye, the potato open faced sandwich or the eggs Benedict (yes, not Danish)...

Good morning! @kseberlin here 👋 This morning, I had my pre-work-caffeine infusion from this #Copenhagen favourite. They really know what they're doing in here, and they are always up for a chat. Plus, the café is just a few steps from Copenhagen's famous Round Tower...@democraticcoffeebar

Good evening from Copenhagen and me, @kseberlin. As the snow is drizzling outside, there's nothing better than to spend an evening inside with friends, good food and great wine. Antidote on cool Jægersborggade is a gem; they know their wine and the food is down to earth and relatively cheap without compromising the quality. Hope you have a great evening wherever you are!

Hello, @kseberlin here 👋 Nyhavn is easily one of Copenhagen's biggest tourist attractions, but it's not without reason. A stroll down this old harbour lane is full of beautiful buildings - and people watching. Walk towards the harbour and continue to the elegant Skuespilhus or take the harbour boat across the water for a beer and some grub at Copenhagen Street Food at Papirøen (Paper Island).
Greeting from Copenhagen and me, @kseberlin 👋 I know nothing better than to take in the view of a city from above. Rundetårn, or Round Tower, was built in 1642 as an observatory commissioned by king Christian IV. It's still an icon of the city and I love the hike up and the 360 degree view over this little city. Notice the green and red rooftops and the many church spires... Just don't look directly down if you're afraid of heights, like me 😵
Hello from @kseberlin 👋 I love going to @torvehallernekbh. It's a world of fresh produce, heavenly temptations and new discoveries. Located right next door to busy Nørreport Station and bustling Israels Plads, the two food halls are their own little world of food. Try a cortado at @coffeecollectif, an organic pizza at Gorm's or browse through fresh vegetables and specialties from around the world.

One of my favourite things about Copenhagen is walking around. The city is definitely best experienced by foot (or the Danish way, by 🚲). The scenery changes with each area, here my colourful hood of Nørrebro!
XO @kseberlin 👋
Yes, this photo is from summer, I wish it was this weather right now. However, taking the harbourferry to Paper Island (Papirøen) is definitely something you should do in Copenhagen. Have great world food at Copenhagen Street Food, enjoy the view towards Skuespilhuset (on the right) or walk around this once industrial little square island. Have coffee at designer Henrik Vibskov's café The Spotted Pig which is also a glimpse into his aesthetic universe. Enjoy!
They are still cutting up pork at the meatpacking district in Vesterbro. But amidst the old industry, an army of cafés, bars and restaurants have risen. I like the raw spaces, some still have meat hooks hanging, it gives a little edge to polished Copenhagen. Now, give me a drink!
Good morning from Copenhagen and me, @kseberlin - it's brunch time here, and Copenhagen has lots of great places. Some of my favourites are: Dyrehaven, Bang & Jensen and Taxa @cafetaxa. The latter is found in Nørrebro where I live. I could use more cafés out here, especially on my side of the area, the outer part. Oh well... I need a coffee! Have a great Saturday out there!
One of my favourite streets in Copenhagen is Magstræde. It's probably the oldest street in the city with houses dating back to the 1640s. Copenhagen went through some big fires in the 1700s but some of these buildings survived.
Today is the perfect weather for going up in the tower of Christiansborg, the parliament building. Access is free and the view is stunning!
