Redmolen Strandbar: A great beach bar in Copenhagen

Redmolen Strandbar: A great beach bar in Copenhagen

I like cafés and bars at surprising places. So when I first heard about the beach bar at Redmolen, I was thrilled. Redmolen is the name of a small area in Nordhavn, one of Copenhagen’s most expensive and boring parts of town. It’s full of newly built buildings and to be totally honest – no...

Escape Room: Solve a mystery in 60 minutes

A month ago Guide to Copenhagen received an e-mail. Escape Room, which recently opened at Østerbro, invited us to come and try their concept. After a quick look at their website (which told us that Escape Room is an activity for friends, where you should break out of a room by solving a mystery) we...

Østerberg Ice Cream: Great ice cream with natural ingredients

There is a new ice cream bar in town. Or at Østerbro, to be more precise. Østerberg Ice Cream opened this summer, and I saw several photos of delicious ice creams at Instagram from the place before I got an opportunity to try it on my own. The happy Instagrammers that wrote about Østerberg Ice...

Café Pixie: A café that reminds you about Paris

Almost all my friends in Copenhagen live at Nørrebro and Vesterbro. That means that there are certain parts of town where I don’t come that often. Østerbro is one of those parts.

Svanemøllen Strand: A small beach a few stops away

My favorite beach in Copenhagen is Svanemøllen Strand. Some might find this odd, since it’s much smaller than some of the other beaches that Copenhagen can offer. That doesn’t matter for me. It is small, yes. But I think of it as a “city beach”, with a small boat harbor on one side, houses on...
Olufs Is: The best ice cream in Copenhagen

Olufs Is: The best ice cream in Copenhagen

All sunny days in Copenhagen are good days for ice cream. My favorite ice cream place is called Olufs Is and is situated at Østerbro. At Olufs Is they make Italian ice cream sticks. I’ve been to Olufs Is many times. I’ve been there with friends, with colleagues and with the Film Critic Guy. It’s...
