Coffee in the sun
The nameless café (Den Navnløse) on Enghave Plads 6 in Vesterbro is a pretty great place to spend your afternoons. With a cup of coffee and a pastry, and the sunshine streaming in through the windows, there’s such a lovely, relaxed atmosphere. And they have a daily copy of almost every Danish newspaper out there, a great rum list, and a Ms. Pac-Man machine which works almost every time!

Backgammon at Christiania
Stroll around Christianshavn. Go down the canal and look at the old, colourful buildings. Go and explore the freetown Christiania where you can grab a cup of coffee and play a game of Backgammon in one of the cosy cafés. In the weekends, you can listen to live music and party in the famous bar Nemoland. After Christiania, you should walk by the canals to Papirøen (Paper Island), which is home to a big food hall with street kitchens from all over the world. The prices are good and the atmosphere amazing. It’s only open Thursdays to Sundays though!

Communal dining and playing
At the community house Absalon in Vesterbro (Sønder Boulevard 73), you get to experience a kind of collective, urban Danishness, where everyone is welcome. They offer a lot of great activities and events for all age groups and preferences – board games, table tennis, yoga, and excellent communal dining!
