Copenhagen’s new Nordic cuisine restaurant Noma, regaled as the best restaurant in the world by the prestigious San Pellegrino top restaurant list and Britain’s Restaurant magazine, is changing the image of the Danish capital. No longer is Denmark just the city with the Little Mermaid statue. Copenhagen has so much more to offer from cuisine to culture to quality of life. In Copenhagen from Momondo + Noma the city’s story is told from new perspectives, revealing many of its marvellous hidden gems.
“Copenhagen is a city in movement. Looking at the city today, it doesn’t make an idyllic or orderly impression. If you’re strolling through the streets and alleys of Copenhagen on a regular Sunday morning, it’s obvious that this is a city that people live in and use. A humble pile of empty pizza boxes, road mending, and youngsters on their way home after a wild night out. This is also the charm of Copenhagen. It’s a city where life is lived. There are stories to be told,” says editor, Anne Gry Daugård.
Noma is a melting pot. The restaurant’s staff members - who come from all corners of the world - are the fulcrum in the guide where they give a new and exogenous insight into Copenhagen’s many facets and distinctive places.
“We have collaborated with Momondo on this book because we think it is both fun and relevant. Noma is a Copenhagen-company blessed with a dedicated staff that hails from around the globe. Why not share their insider-tips to Copenhagen? Because of their diverse backgrounds, they each experience the city differently, seeing it from angles that may even surprise a local native. It has been an enjoyable process creating this book. We’ve discussed and rethought Copenhagen, and we’ve gotten to know each other much better,” explains Noma’s Managing, Peter Kreiner.
The guide is a leather-bound pocket-size book designed to be turned and twisted in the hands of the reader when exploring Copenhagen. All locations are thoroughly described and plotted on 5 chapter maps as well on a large fold-out map of the entire city. Accompanying the chapter maps are 5 inspiring routes, which include the highlights of Copenhagen’s different neighborhoods.
Copenhagen from Noma + Momondo is a practical guide that’ll make you feel like an explorer.
