Food and coffee around the city

This is some of the places that may be worth a visit. To get inspiration and find good deals on the day for two people, you can also look at www.earlybird.com. If you want to try Danish lunch, go for Danish open sandwiches - "Smørrebrød" – slices of rye bread with different traditional toppings. You can also try pork roast sandwiches - "Flæskestegssandwich" - which is like a burger but with pork and red cabbage
In the summer we suggest visiting the food market Reffen. It is a lot of outdoor food stalls with food from around the world. People eat and have drinks, there is lounge music and a really nice atmosphere. It is located next to the sea, just opposite of the little mermaid. It is not the best location on windy days. There is a skate park next to it – popular with both children and adults visiting Reffen.

Amager Bakke (Copenhill) is a really nice experience on a sunny day. It is a hill on the top of a power plant not far from our house. You can either walk to the top or take the lift and the view over the sea and the city is really good. There is an outdoor bar at the top and there is no entrance fee.

A lot of foreigners have heard of this community (within the community) which was founded back in 1971 by a group of people who did not want to be part of the established society. The place has a very nice atmosphere. It is fun to just look around and see the home-built houses of the residents. If you visit, be prepared that there may be instant police raids against the people selling drugs. If you bring children, it may be a good idea to warn them that not everything taking place is legal.

Local Activities

We have the beach right outside the door. It is ready for walks, talks, kites, swimming, cold dips, picnics, sand castle building and so much more. If you like roller skates, skateboards or scooters, the beach park is a good place to bring these. The main walk through the park is made from concrete and there are several large areas that work well with wheels.

Christmas in Copenhagen

You can look for Christmas markets online on visitcopenhagen. Here you will find a selection of markets, some of which are in the city. Others are outside Copenhagen and can be reached by car. Danes eat loads of “æbleskiver” around Christmas. Directly translated it means “apple slices”. It is balls of pancake dough that (in the old days) used to have a slice of apple inside. It is eaten with sugar and jam. “Gløgg” is another thing to try. It is hot red wine with spices, almonds and raisins. Apart from this, Danes eat “flæskesteg” (pork roast with crackling) and “risengrød” (rice cooked with milk) with butter and cinnamon or made into “ris á la mande” (rice pudding) with cherry sauce. Some of these things can be tried if you go for a Christmas platter or “julefrokost” (Christmas lunch).
Walking around Copenhagen you will get a lot of Christmas feeling. There is normally a market at the square Kongens Nytorv (Kgs. Nytorv) which is also one of the main stops on the metro when visiting the city center.

At Kongens Nytorv is also Hotel D’Angleterre which - depending on the financial situation – has nice Christmas decorations at the front of the hotel. Before COVID we would always go to have a look at this.

Our favourite market outside Copenhagen is Gurre Julemarked which is busy, cold, and cosy. It is mainly visited by Danes, but should you decide to visit we suggest arriving early if you want the less crowded version - or around dusk if you want the most atmosphere.
