Copenhagen 'Hygge'

When the weather is dreary and the winter feels endless, we make sure to squeeze in short one or two-day getaways to fill up on energy and inspiration. 

One of our favourite boltholes in Copenhagen, which isn’t more than an hours drive. During our last visit, we had the pleasure of checking in to Sanders, the city’s very first luxury boutique hotel. Conceived by Alexander Kølpin, formerly one of Denmark’s most celebrated principal ballet dancers, Sanders is located just opposite the Royal Danish Theatre, Kølpin’s prior professional home since 1981. 

We particularly love the cosy rooms, outfitted in a modern take on Danish colonial style by London studio Lind + Almond, and the shower – like stepping right into an intense session of light therapy – are to die for.
