Staycation at Hotel Ottilia

Do I want to travel?

Do I want to spoil myself and celebrate getting through 2020?

BIG FAT YES!

And that’s is why I spent this weekend enjoying a staycation in my own city of Copenhagen at the luxury boutique hotel, Hotel Ottilia.

The hotel is fairly new and opened last year in the iconic buildings that once were used as a brewery where the world famous Carlsberg beer was made.

But the hotel is iconic in so many more ways. One of my favorite ways being their industrial design and how they have kept the original details like the big, round panoramic windows.

Take a look yourself. I stayed in the Superior Double room.

An abandoned military facility: Naturlejren Auderød

As described by Visit Denmark Naturlejren Auderød is a nature centre with pick-your-own flower fields (during the summer) and a dark treasure next to the fields. Today you can explore the abandoned military training camp Auderød where the navy and navy seals where trained. It closed back in 2008 and kept as a kind of time capsule with dusty phone books and old coffee cups still sat in their original positions.

It is also one of the filming locations for Netflix series “The Rain”.

The interesting thing about this place is that my granddad were training as a navy seal at this exact place for 6 months of his training. So this place has both a historical and personal meaning to me.

The property is HUGE and consists of several baracks, auditoriums, a church, Friday Bar and buildings which use are unknown to me. The place is scary in and of itself and you need to be careful in the buildings with pee on floors, many broken windows and long lost dolls on the floor.
