Go Local Special Treats & Perks All Around the City

Copenhagen and Aarhus are both buzzing with cool spots and experiences all around. But if, like us, you’re always looking for that unique experience – something a little different, something a little more local – then read on!

We’ve rounded up a special list of spot-hitting local experiences in both cities! In Copenhagen, there's a selection of over 30 different partners in each neighbourhood that our boutique hotels are set in. In Aarhus, you can find spots all around town as part of BOOK1 Design Hostel. No matter where you visit, you can explore a unique selection of the best local food, drinks, fashion, design, interior, and culture. We call it: GO LOCAL.

We’ve put this together for two reasons: to create a unique experience for you and to support our local hoods. And this is not just another list of recommendations – oh no, that’s not really how we do things around here. We’ve taken it up a notch! Each one is carefully handpicked by us based on the premise that they, in different ways, are contributing positively to the neighbourhood. They are, what we call ‘local heroes’. And from to time, you will also be able to experience collaborations around events, pop-ups, tastings, etc. - so make sure to keep an eye on what's on.
