Recently, ForbesLife caught up with Sarah Britton, founder of the award winning healthy food blog My New Roots to discuss healthy travel tips and how her home city of Copenhagen has transformed into one of the world’s most progressive green eating cities (read the full interview here).
She also spent time selecting her top 6 hotspots, which health aware visitors of Copenhagen will surely welcome on their travels. Read on for Sarah’s green Copenhagen picks.
1. Simple Raw
I first went to this raw restaurant for brunch (which is delicious!) but they also have an amazing lunch and dinner menu, plus desserts and snacks to take away. The interior has a cool vibe and it’s easy to meet like-minded people here over a green juice.

2. Botanisk Have
Copenhagen’s botanical gardens are stunning, with so many private little nooks and crannies to hide and read a book or take a nap. They also have a fantastically humid greenhouse that is wonderful escape during the winter.

Although most people stroll down the main street and turn around, Christiania is the most beautiful area for walking in the whole city. It takes some exploring and an adventurous spirit, but the multitude of pathways through the stunning Danish forest will make you feel miles away from the city, even though you are right in the heart of it. Check out the homes all along the lake – most are built out of recycled materials, are completely off-grid and some even have living roofs!
