- Noma: http://noma.dk/
The name speaks for itself! At Noma, you are guaranteed a dining experience like none other. Chef Rene Redzepi delivers an exceptional dining experience, one you surely won’t forget. The Nordic-inspired gourmet cuisine is carefully prepared and exquisitely presented. Noma currently holds two Michelin stars in the Michelin Guide Nordic Cities 2015. Guests have been known to fly in just to experience dining in the World’s Best Restaurant – where the wait is often (only) a few months. The produce is of course 100% Nordic from Denmark, Iceland, the Faroe Islands and even Greenland. We recommend online booking well in advance.

4. Kong Hans Kælder: http://www.konghans.dk/
Kong Hans Kælder (King Hans’ Cellar) is located in the oldest building in Copenhagen, which was at one time a vineyard. A few hundred years later, H.C. Andersen also lived under this roof. Vaulted ceilings, gothic arches and romantic candlelight are all combined to create an elegant dining room in a historic setting. Kong Hans Kælder holds one Michelin Star and its chef, Thomas Rode Andersen is also a featured writer and public figure.
Situated on a quiet urban street in the neighborhood of Nørrebro is a small and humble restaurant, Relæ. At first glance, it may not appear to be like the other Michelin-starred restaurants. But that’s one thing that sets Relæ apart. Opened only 5 years ago by chef Christian Puglisi, Relæ already has one star in the Michelin Guide Nordic Cities 2015 and also ranks number 45 in the 2015 list of the World’s Best Restaurants. The dishes are experimental and innovative, all served in a down-to-earth and welcoming atmosphere.
