The ultimate spa break in Copenhagen

Unwind with the help of this historical landmark

Words by Natalie Lukaitis

If you want to dive into Copenhagen’s history, start with Hotel d’Angleterre, located in the heart of the city. Founded in 1755, it’s where thousands flock each Christmas to watch the lights get switched on and where rockstars and royalty visit to ‘get a break’.

Inspired by the traditions and with a light and elegant look the d’Angleterre has been reconstructed as a new and unique experience in the head of Copenhagen.

Each of the 92 rooms has been decorated to feel like a home away from home, with modern touches complementing the traditional design, with many of the suites offering balconies, complete with views of the most beautiful parts of the city.

Downstairs, you will find a state of the art fitness centre and one of the most tranquil spas in Europe, known as the Amazing Space d’Angleterre. Here, you can lounge by the serenely lit pool and enjoy the soothing sounds of trickling water, or indulge in one of their many treatments, inspired by Asian spa traditions with a Nordic influence, designed for both body and soul.

No stay would be complete without a visit to the glamorous Balthazaar bar for a glass of bubbles, before moving into the famous Michel-starred Marchal restaurant, where you will be treated to a fusion of Nordic and French cuisines. Described as ‘modern urban food with tradition of culinary passion’, each dish is created to appeal to all of your senses, for an all-round experience.

If you fancy taking a stroll outside (we completely understand if you would prefer to simply enjoy everything the hotel has to offer), a ten minute walk in every direction will take you to where you want to visit, including the Amalienborg Palace and one of Copenhagen’s best shopping streets, Strøget, which happens to be right next door.

Rooms start from around £347 for a night.
