Geranium, Copenhagen

With its panoramic park views, this luxurious restaurant feels as if it is inviting the outside in, yet it’s unusually located on the 8th floor of the National Football Stadium. Modern techniques and the finest organic and biodynamic ingredients are used to create beautiful, pure and balanced dishes.
