That site is translated to English, isn't it? "written by locals, translated by robots"... that was the point ;-)

Lot's of places to drink beer. Be sure to visit this place: http://www.mikkeller.dk/index.php?id=41&blog_id=143&land=0

 

Viktoriagade 8BC, kld.
DK-1655 Copenhagen V
Denmark

 

The place is driven by one of the top Danish breweries. They have, off course, some of their own beer, but also lots of other brands. Draught beer...

 

Also make sure you hit this spot. Actually this could be 1. choice as it's right in center of town and theres room for many costumers. (the other one is a bit small and intimate)... This is a belgian bar, but you can read for yourself, site on english :-)

You don't come from Belgium to Denmark to go to a Belgian bar wink_face.gif

 

But I can't recommend any other beer places than Nørrebro Bryghus that I mentioned before as I'm no beer drinker.

No, you don't. You are so right nc. Any not belgians out there? floatsmile.png

 

Belgian...ok. don't expect too much of beer in Denmark, generally. But I think the first place I mentioned, could be for you.

 

There was a hype in 2007-2010- about "micro breweries" in Denmark, lots of them good, some of them just there... If you want to try good Danish beer, be sure you taste the big Hancock. They have been around forever :-)

Well, there are more good places for beer.

 

If it's just beer you're looking for:

Charlie's Bar in Pilestræde (right in the City centre) is the best of British beer you can get in Denmark. They serve Cask Marque beer and regularly change up the selection.

Ølbaren - literally translates as 'The Beer Bar' - in Elmegade in the neighbourhood Nørrebro has a good selection of locally brewed beer from all over Denmark. And they do Happy Hour from each day until 8pm, which is good if you can't handle regular Danish prices.

 

If you want food and beer, Nørrebro Bryghus has already been suggested. In this vain Brewpub on Vestergade, right in the City centre is also a good choice.

 

When it comes to Audio Shops the choice is limited, but Lydbutikken at Frederiksberg Allé is the obvious suggestion.

 

Apart from beer and sound equipment, what are you into? Architecture, design, food, arts, museums, shopping or something else entirely? We are a few locals who can no doubt come up with some good suggestions here :-)

post #53 of 65

Thanks all again for all the food & drink suggestions, I'm gonna be busy :-)

 

The gf is interested in architecture and design a lot, of course there will be some shopping (but there's one main shopping street right?)

What I'd like to discover most are the real copenhagen non tourist things. Nice places to see or to be at with good atmosphere

 

I've been pretty busy but I'm gonna try to make a list of things to see and do this weekend

 

Thanks again, I really appreciate it!

@Design:

There is of course the Danish Design Center at H.C. Andersens Boulevard, right next to City Hall and Tivoli. But to be honest it's not especially interesting unless the specific exhibit is right up your alley. http://www.ddc.dk

Of more interest are perhaps the show rooms of classic design companie like lamp makers Louis Poulsen at Gammel Strand (makers of many PH classic PH lamps) or Stelton at Christianshavns Kanal.

Kunstindustrimuseet - Danish Museum of Art and Design - at Bredgade have permanent exhibits with decades of Danish design and some interesting non-permanent exhibits. http://kunstindustrimuseet.dk/en

 

@Architecture:

The Danish Architecture Centre at Strandgade is an interesting place.

If you want to do some sightseeing of particular buildings I can come up with some ideas for this as well; like Nyboder, the old navy officers' quarters and of course Frederiksstaden, which is the area surrounding the Amalienborg Castle.

There will probably be a spring meeting but that will be in Jutland, probably Kolding or Esbjerg. Next Copenhagen meet will be in the autumn.

Kolding is probably 200 km or 2 hours by train. Esbjerg would be 300 km or 3 hours by train.

Damn, should have known about this. Have a Beyerdyamic A1 and an 880/600ohm manufaktur I could have brought with me. 

Next time maybe.

  • Chruches (Frelserkirken on Amager, Holmens kirke, Marmorkirken)
  • Museums (National museum, national art gallery, Ny Carlsberg glyptotek, Thorvaldsensmuseum)
  • Must sees outside Copenhagen reachable by train from central station (Frederiksborg palace in Hillerød, Kronborg castle in Helsingør (Shakespears Hamlet), Vikingship museum and Cathedral in Roskilde)
  • Nyhavn where you must have lunch in f.ex. Nyhavns Færgekro (you must try the herring buffet, typically Danish)
  • A good place for dinner and to try some Danish beer could be Nørrebr Bryghus (they brew their own beer on site and incorporate it in the food as well, reservation essential most days)
  • Another good dinner place (if you can get a table, might be easier for lunch) is Noma that has just been named best restaurant in the world. But it is EXPENSIVE.
  • If you get a nice sunny day and like to see old rural building go to the open air museum (Frilandsmuseet in Sorgenfri)
  • The Cistern glass museum in the old water cistern under neath the big lawn outside Copenhagen Zoo.

 

All of this and a bit more I did in 4 days together with anthonyfirst when he visited me in August.


Please elaborate, preferably with photographs.  biggrin.gif

 

Just how many ways of serving herring are we talking here?  (I like a good pickled herring...)
