Niels, 54, KINDERGARTEN TEACHER
I want to recommend the Open Air Museum (Frilandsmuseet) at Brede, just north of Copenhagen. It gives you a special insight and understanding of the history of Denmark. And it’s located in the most beautiful natural surroundings. You can wander at random among the old houses and put your imagination into use. I really enjoy it!

PIL, 29, ETHNOLOGIST
Go for a walk in Hans Tavsens Park on Nørrebro and then head off to Gilt, a short walk away on Rantzausgade, for the best cocktails in the city!

ALEXANDER, 25, STUDENT
Go sailing on the canals of Copenhagen. You can rent a small boat or hop on a classic guided boat tour. I love the waters of Copenhagen, especially in the summertime!

ANNE-BRITT, 55, EDUCATION ADVISOR
The Museum of Copenhagen always has a lot of exciting things going on. I highly recommend the exhibition Becoming a Copenhagener, to tourists as well as locals.

TRILLE, 48, DEVELOPMENT CONSULTANT
There’s a really great buffet at the café at the National Gallery of Denmark (SMK), which also offers a beautiful view across the park of Østre Anlæg. The way the new and the old building meet is magnificent, and is in itself worth a visit!

SOLFINN, 35, SOMMELIER
Copenhageners have an amazing way of interacting with the city in the summer. Stop by Queen Louise’s Bridge (Dronning Louise's Bro) and enjoy the sun and the atmosphere. Or try Fafa’s Falafel on St. Kongensgade 18.
