Hello and thank you for coming all this way to read us.

Today we're telling you about a crush we had on Copenhagen. We've been wanting to go to the pearl of the Baltic for over 2 years, so on a whim we left, and it was in this very nice Airbnb that we criss-crossed the city in the company of our two youngest, Brune and Billie.

We arrived on Thursday and spent our first day discovering the Vesterbro district. We won't spoil the rest by telling you that this is our favourite neighbourhood. Everything has been designed with families in mind: cafés by the parks, kid-friendly shops, very few cars and dozens of cycle paths.

As the days went by, so did our visits to the different districts and our favourites: Indre by, Frederiksberg, Nørderbr, Vesterbro. Here's a short, non-exhaustive list of places to stop off at:

Enghave kaffe. Before taking the (very clean and recent) metro to Enghave Platz, stop off for a cappuccino in this café. The selection is top-notch, and there are outdoor benches for a cosy moment. Another café for purists this time: April (and you can take the opportunity to walk along the canal, a little touristy for our taste but still very pretty).

Designmuseum. It's well worth a visit to get a better idea of Denmark's place on the international design scene. Interactive

Louisiana. Museum of Modern Art, so beautiful! Walk to Copenhagen's main railway station (Københavns Hovedbanegård), past the old abattoirs that have become alternative restaurants and bars, and take the little line that runs along the seafront towards Humlebæk St. The journey takes around 40 minutes and is great fun. And don't forget to stop off at Humlebæk station for a coffee - it's really cute. A few minutes' walk will take you to the Louisiana museum, and now I'm at a loss for words, it's crazy (we even dipped our feet in the Baltic Sea!).

The HAY house: here we're not necessarily fans of the now famous furniture and decor brand. But we have to admit that what they've done in the centre of the Indre by district is pretty crazy. Spanning 3 floors, you're bound to fall in love!

Gourmet bonus: Apotek 57 and the sublime Frama boutique next door, Juno the Bakery for the best cardamom rolls in the world, and Donda eatery for a romantic dinner.

And last but not least, book your bikes - there's a shortage of them in Copenhagen!
