When the sun is out, the Copenhageners are out. Luckily, the Copenhagen harbour has plenty of perfect places to soak up some sunshine while enjoying stunning waterfront views and delicious foods. Here are some of our favorites.

It does not get more waterfront than Restaurant Vandvid – the restaurant is actually placed on a boat in the Copenhagen habour. The boat’s big window gives you a stunning view over the water, and during the summer, the boat even has outdoor service on the deck.
