When the sun is shining, almost all the university students in Copenhagen forget about their books and goes outside to enjoy the good weather. There are a few places where people always tend to hang out at, when they both want to catch the sun and look rather cool. For people living in Copenhagen, this might be old news, but for foreigners visiting, it might be a bit fun to hear about.

Dronning Louises Bro
From April-October, people hanging out with a coffee and a beer occupy this bridge. Some people call it “Hipsterbroen”, which means the “hipster bridge”. It’s probably quite true, and if you’re bored you can pass the bridge and try to count how many Ray Bans you see. I promise you that it’s a lot.
Address: Nørrebrogade close to Søerne/The lakes, Nørrebro

Sønder Boulevard
Buy something to drink at Kihoskh, a small store having everything you’ve ever wanted to try. There are a few benches outside Kihoskh, but I rather walk over and just hang out at the grass in the middle. If you fancy some ping pong, this is also the place to go, since you’ll find several tables here.
Address: Sønder Boulevard, Vesterbro

Assistens Kirkegård
This is actually a cemetery, but many persons are hanging out here anyway. If you go for a walk, you’ll spot people having a picnic at blankets everywhere, as well as people running or working out.
Address: Kapelvej 4, Nørrebro
