the organic hot dog stand | copenhagen

I'm just popping in with an updated version of this post. New photos and a new address.

Every time I'm in Copenhagen I have several lunches here. As a vegetarian it's really rare that you can actually enjoy a real hot dog, but the Organic hot dog stand offers both a vegetarian and a vegan version and they taste GREAT. Besides the veggie versions you can choose between different kinds of traditional sausages and you can choose between the ordinary classic hot dog or the French hot dog.

All ingredients are organic and just so much more delicious than what you usually find at ordinary hot dog stands in Copenhagen.

You now find DØP in two places in Copenhagen: In Købmagergade in front of the Round Tower and on Strøget in front of Helligåndskirken.

I have to admit that I am mainly writing this blog post because of the photos. I haven't really tried the kitchen at Toldboden (The Custom House), since we just dropped by for a coffee after our walk around Nyboder and Kastellet. That said I know many friends who have been here and they all speak well of the place. 

Toldboden is located by the harbor and the place is really big which makes it suitable for kids as well. It is especially famous for it's big weekend brunch, but during summer time you should also try their harbor grill outside. 

As you can see from the photos the interior is pretty cool and although it was a bit dark inside (rainy and cloudy day) I couldn't help but take a few pics.

These photos were taken at Kastellet, which is a beautiful old fortress in Copenhagen. As a child I used to come here with my family once every year on the night before the Danish holiday called Store Bededag (Great Prayer Day). 

It was a tradition to go for a walk around the fortress on the night before the holiday and then return home to eat a typical Danish warm bread called Hveder. 

This time we took the walk during the day and it was beautiful. It had rained in the morning and everything was so green and fresh.

nyboder | copenhagen

A glimpse out of my windows tell me that I'm the only one left in Florence today. Apparently everyone else has left town to celebrate the Italian Ferragosto by the sea. I can understand why. There is absolutely nothing left to do in Florence. Everything is closed and it's too hot. 

I still have tons of photos to share from Copenhagen. Here are a few from the charming Nyboder which we passed one day while taking a long walk in Copenhagen.

torvehallerne | copenhagen

It's not like I plan it, but apparently every time I go to Copenhagen I end up spamming my Instagram followers with colorful photos from Copenhagen's new market Torvehallerne. This time was no exception.

If you missed them on Instagram allow me to spam you right here with some colors.
