Copenhagen to Paris -- where should we stop for a visit?

We'll be in Copenhagan at the end of March with a flight out of Paris a week later.  What is an interesting "off the beaten path" location to visit between the two?  We can fly or take a train.  Interested in history, food, and culture. . .

Oh there are so many interesting cities in between. A week is a tight timeframe but doable if you spend only 2 days in Copenhagen (it's a small city, you don't need more). I'd suggest that you research train option first to determine the middle city, but out of the top of my head I'd suggest HamburgDusseldorf or Cologne in Germany, AmsterdamBrugesGhent or Antwerp in Belgium. Especially Bruges and Ghent are such beautiful cities.

I think Freetown ChristianiaFreetown Christiania is a very unique and interesting community to check out. You can take the metro to Christianhavn and walk 10 minutes. It's a very alternative anarchist community that has an artsy and grungy feel. There are bars, shopping stalls, some industrial museums, and the have strict rules like you're not allowed to take photos or run, once you set foot in the area. Nørrebro is also a hipster and ethnic neighborhood with a lot of cheap and delicious kebab food places, especially on the street, Nørrebrogade. For history, basically, the Københavns City Center is full of architecture and museums that are great for that. Even though it's the tourist area of Copenhagen, there's so much to see. Oh, forgot to mention Vesterbrogade, the meatpacking district of Copenhagen. A neighborhood that also has some really good food places. There's a very popular and local brewery there called Mikkeller ApS if you're interested in beer.

The normal train route between Copenhagen and Paris would include train changes in Hamburg and Cologne.  Between Hamburg and Cologne, there are stops in OsnabruckMunsterDuisburg, and Dusseldorf.  Between Cologne and Paris are AachenLiege and Brussels.

I would suggest Aachen as it's a little smaller than some of the others, with a lot of history you can visit, especially around the Cathedral area.  I do also love Dusseldorf, Cologne, and Brussels, but they're quite a bit bigger.

We discovered Bremen, Germany by accident a few years ago and absolutely loved it. It's the perfect place to go if you're into cultural attractions and events--there are more museums and theaters than you could get to if you stayed there a month. We loved all the outdoor cafes as well. We stayed at a place called Atlantic Grand Hotel Bremen and thought it was excellent.

I would suggest a visit to Alsace.

very pretty part of northern France with a great kitchen and some fantastic wine.

Towns like Colmar Kaysersberg and Riquewihr are all super nice places.
