Copenhagen, Denmark

Geranium has been hands down my best and favorite fine dining experience. It is the only 3 Michelin starred restaurant in Copenhagen and has retained its rating since 2016.

The restaurant is located on the eighth floor of the Parken soccer stadium, home of FC Copenhagen. You can also find Fælledparken, which is the largest park in Copenhagen nearby, with views overlooking the park when seated inside.

See photos of the entire meal below!

At just about $400 per person, eating at Geranium is definitely a splurge, to say the least. Wine or juice pairing is separate and ranges anywhere from 1,000 DKK (~$145) to 15,000 DKK (~$2,182) for the most rare and unique wine pairing.

If you are into fine dining, you won’t regret this experience. It was truly unforgettable with impeccable service.
