Are you scouting for restaurants in Copenhagen? We have a tip that works for all meals of the day – Café Dyrehaven!
Down in Copenhagen’s Meatpacking District, also known as Kødbyen, there are billions of places to eat. Okay, perhaps not billions, but there are so many! Wether you’re out for a burger, luxury or a pub, this is the place to go to. We tried out a local favourite that’s been here for some time – Café Dyrehaven. This place is open for breakfast, lunch and dinner, and we were not disappointed. The interior feels old but not outdated, and it suits well with the whole hip feeling you get in Kødbyen. The kitchen closes as 21.00, but the pub is open until 02.00 in the weekends. Perhaps this is not the place for a romantic dinner for two, but if you’re a group of friends travelling you’ll probably love the noisy atmosphere. You can stay for a drink after you’ve eaten, since this place more or less turns into a pub after the kitchen closes. The main courses costs from DKK 150 – 250 and the menu can be found here. You’ll find Café Dyrehaven on street Sønder Blvd. 72 in Kødbyen.

If you’re heading to Nørrebro, you can’t miss out on the cosy street Jægersborggade! This street has quickly become one of the hippest streets in Copenhagen. Jægersborggade is not very long – it’ll take you five minutes just so walk up and down. However, it’s filled with cool bars, art galleries, vintage shops and cafés. Among them the wine bar Terroiristen and Michelin-starred restaurant Relæ. During spring, the streets hosts a fleemarket. Keep track on dates on their Facebook-page. Here you can see what restaurants can be found on this hip street.
For the spring 2017 we have chosen to launch a couple of new tours in Copenhagen to meet the public’s requests. From next year, you will be able to join us for an alternative walking tour of Copenhagen, in Christianshavn, or choose to join one of our two new bus tours. One of them goes out to Christianborgs Palace and Botanisk Have, and the other one is more a panoramic drive through Copenhagen. You can read about each tour by clicking the links!

Time to snuggle up and get cosy, it’s Christmas time! We celebrate by looking at Christmas decorations, eating Christmas delights and by going to Christmas Markets, one example is the one at Tivoli Gardens in Copenhagen. If you’re in Copenhagen during the Christmas season – November and December that is – it’s kind of a must to head over to the amusement park Tivoli’s Christmas Market. Here you can fill up your christmas spirit real good. Not only will the entire park be decorated with christmas lights, there will be light shows in the Chinese area of the park, and of course the 60 stalls where you will be able to purchase christmassy things. The stalls will be filled with food, Christmas decorations, crafts, knitted products and much more. The icing on the cake? The rides are open as always!

Frederiksborgs Palace, located approx. 50 minutes north of Copenhagen, will show an exhibition made by Marco Grob the whole autumn. It consists of 70 iconic portraits made by the photographer, who’s born in Switzerland. Among the portraits that Marco Grob has taken – and that will be displayed in the Danish palace – there are personalities like George Clooney, the Danish Royal Couple, Lady Gaga, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. Most of the portraits has been published in big magazines such as Vogue and Times. Besides from the exhibition, Frederiksborgs Palace is an experience on it’s own. It’s located right by a beautiful lake and has tremendous amount of history and interior that tells you a lot about Denmarks history. The exhibition by Marco Grob is shown inside the The Museum of National History, which is located in the palace. More information about the museum and exhibition can be found on The Museum of National History’s website.

From the 14th of October to 6th of November, the amusement park Tivoli in Copenhagen opens up for it’s Halloween celebrations. It’s a tradition that the amusement park has had for long. The park is – obviously – transformed into a scary amusement par filled with ghosts and pumpkins and lots of activities. The carousels open up after a pause from the summer – on the 31st of October you can even go two for one, when the park offers double rides. For the kids, there’s also activities; they can count the pumpkins in the park to mention one. For the elders, there’s two activities out of the ordinary… On the 29th of October it’s time for “Monster’s Night Out” – a parade through the park with zombies, ghosts and other scary stuff. On the 5th, it’s time for “Tivoli Midnight Run”, a race through the park in the dark. You can read more about what’s happening in the park during Halloween on Tivoli’s Website.
