Shamballa’s gems of Copenhagen

Mads and Mikkel Kornerup are the Danish brothers behind Shamballa Jewels. They love Copenhagen, and have many favorite places in the city to take their international agents to.

Mikkel's favorite places

Tibirke Bakker, Udsigten

We have a fantastic summer home dating from our great grandfather’s time in the hills of Tirbirke, which is about 60km north of Copenhagen. There’s a special place here called Udsigten, with spectacular views of the countryside. Standing here you feel like you have stepped back into the Viking Age. Many generations of our family have run up and down these hills.

Mads's favorite places

Nimb Brasseri

My son has a season ticket for the Tivoli Gardens amusement park. So while he’s running wild, we can eat the best brunch in town at this brasserie located by the Tivoli entrance.

Skt. Annæ hotel restaurant

The restaurant here has fantastic decor and atmosphere. They serve a very traditional Danish lunch with open sandwiches piled high, beer and snaps. It’s utterly charming. If you want to have the perfect meal here, I suggest snaps, pickled herring, cured salmon and pork ribs.

Café Victor

This is the place to be for lunch. They serve good food here and there’s always a good atmosphere and loads of interesting people. One of my favorite dishes is the pan-fried flounder on rye bread with remoulade.
