Festive treats in Copenhagen

If you are lucky enough to be visiting Copenhagen soon, the Tivoli gardens reopen for the festive season. They will be dressed for Christmas with a Russian theme So expect Father Frost, fireworks and Tivoli’s trademark spectacular decorations. There’s also performances of the Nutcracker with set and costumes by Denmark’s Queen Margrethe.

The way to make a visit to Tivoli really special is a meal at Herman. One of Copenhagen’s 11 Michelin starred restaurants, Herman really puts on the style. Oil-infused oysters are showcased on a sculptural stand of seaweed. The turbot comes on a delicate medley of vegetables and leaves. The unexpected delight is the dill and cucumber chocolate and meringue dessert, but even that is eclipsed by the signature symphony in black. It is a pure work of art where the flavour released by its destruction is the ultimate pleasure in fruit and liquorice.

For a really decadent city break, check into Nimb, the hotel which hosts Herman. Stylish and comfortable in the way the Danes excel, Nimb is housed in one of the Tivoli pavilions, so you get the best of the two worlds. Retreat into Nimb’s elegance from a nerve-jangling ride on a Tivoli rollercoaster or after sampling the sights of the ever-wonderful Copenhagen. [– FL]
