Helena Christensen’s best Copenhagen tips

Helena Christensen may spend more time in New York than Copenhagen these days, but the Danish capital is still very close to her heart. Here are five of her favorite places.

The King’s Garden

Kongens Have, the King’s Garden, is a beautiful, magical garden in the middle of the city with a fairytale castle, a lake with swans and a glorious rose ­garden.

Freetown Christiania

The city’s alternative, green, car-free neighborhood, established in a disused army barracks by a community of hippies in 1971. It operates ­independently of the government and is a very interesting and cool experience. Go to Spiseloppen for dinner and then walk around the lake and enjoy all of the unique houses.
