My favourite spots in Copenhagen and where to spend an afternoon

Finding charming, unique places that are not on the standard tourist bucket list takes some trial and error. Here, you’ll find a recap of my favourite spots in Copenhagen, including places to eat, shop and spend an afternoon. I’ll save you time spent rambling around the City, and maybe give you some excuses not to stay home.

To eat

GRØD: a porridge bar. That’s it. There are sweet and salad dishes (my favourite one is the Jerusalem Artichoke Risotto) and some vegan options as well. The price range is between DKK 40 and 85, and there are multiple establishments around the City. Also, it’s super convenient and cosy. I brought all my friends there who came to visit me.

MADENITALY: vegan Italian food. One of the best vegan restaurants I’ve ever tried! It’s near Nyhavn, and in case you go with friends, I especially recommend sharing their pizzas. They cost only DKK 50/60 each and are made of very fresh ingredients.

To shop

Jaeggersborggade: street located in the Norrebro neighbourhood. Not only is it full of charming vintage stores (Tú a Tú and Perfectly Worn Vintage are my favourites), but also has cafes and bakeries, such as Cafe Collective and Meyers Bageri. To present it to you even more appealingly: beautiful parks surround it.

Larsbjørnsstræde area: if you are tired of shopping in big malls and fast-fashion retailers, the streets located between the City Hall and Ørsteds Park are one of the best choices to visit. There are lovely independent and vintage stores. If you go, take a look at Episode, Wasteland and Samsøe.

To spend an afternoon

Library Garden: there are dozens of beautiful parks in Copenhagen, yet this is my ultimate favourite. Located 5 minutes away from Gammel Strand, I cross it at least once a week to get to the Royal Library, and I always take a picture of it. Also, you can see it through the window while studying in the library.

Kaffesalonen: bar located near Queen Louise’s Bridge. The best part is its pavilion with views of the lake. The prices are not too high – definitely the best place to enjoy a glass of wine and spend a late afternoon with friends.

    CBS Associate Professor starts YouTube channel on compliance: “We must communicate research differently”

    For Associate Professor Kalle Johannes Rose, his YouTube channel about risk-based compliance serves many purposes. It is both a personal tool to help him structure and explain the material as well as an opportunity to reach out to people working with compliance and for them to ask questions before he finishes a new book. He believes that researchers should think differently about how they communicate their research, and that CBS could do a better job of helping them.

    CBS professor’s review of corona measures is happy news for democracy in Europe
