The best places to brunch with a view in Copenhagen

Copenhageners love weekend brunch and the city’s arts and culture venues aim to ensure visitors enjoy an unforgettable culture and food experience. Life cannot get much better than sampling delicious food while admiring sea views or the Copenhagen skyline. Truly, the best brunch with a view places in Copenhagen.

Café Hovedtelegrafen, Post og Telemuseet

Probably the best view in town and a delicious buffet brunch. The Post og Telemuseet café is situated close to Rundetårn and boasts views over the city’s roofs, towers and spires. You can enjoy the views and the heaven sent food either inside or outside on the roof terrace. But you will have to be quick – the museum and café is relocating in December 2015.

The shimmering blue Øresund as far as the eye can see, green grass and sculptures in the grounds. Not many things can compare with the view from the Calder terrace at Louisiana Art Museum in Humlebæk, while the lunch buffet is modern Nordic cuisine at its best. After lunch, you can admire the world class art, architecture and visit the museum shop.

Arkens café is built like a ship and with a great view of beautiful Køge Bugt.


The modern art museum in Ishøj offers views over the Køge Bay seascape and rolling waves. The high ceilinged café architecture and wooden floors lend an air of being on a large sailing ship and you almost have a sense of being at sea as you tackle the classic brunch here.
