Beer Bar

“Owned by Mikkeller: The story of Mikkeller is the story of two home brewers who in a few years went from hobby brewing in the kitchen to national and international recognition. Adress: victoriagade 8b. Since the summer of 2007, the world famous brewer Mikkel Borg Bjergsø, has run Mikkeller on his own. Mikkel is a gipsy-brewer, who brews at different breweries in Denmark, around Europe and the United States and has his own beer bar Mikkeller Bar in the heart of Vesterbro. At the original Mikkeller Bar you find taps from Mikkeller and the world’s best breweries, cheese, snacks, meats and a specialized bottled selection. Most of the taps are Mikkeller’s own brew. Mikkeller also runs a beer bar at Stefansgade 35 in Copenhagen's Nørrebro area, called Mikkeller and Friends. Mikkeller has several other beer bars and restaurants around Copenhagen. You will also find Mikkeller bars in San Francisco, Stockholm and other big cities around the world. ”

Women's Store
“Most visitors know about the main shopping street Strøget in the city center, which is definitely worth a visit. But if you wish to avoid the crowds or if the weather is not for a lot of walking outside, then I recommend doing your obligatory holiday shopping in Frederiksberg Mall. The mall has won several design awards and has all the best Nordic Design shops, be it clothing or interior design and their large selection of stores caters to all price levels and needs.”

Harbour / Marina
“This is classic Copenhagen and is a great place for a walk. Walk across Inderhavnsbroen and enjoy the view. Nyhavn is very touristy and the food is way to expensive. Visit Reffen or Torvehallerne for great value instead. ”

“Relay, in Jægersborggade on Nørrebro, is proud to deliver a 'no nonsense' gastronomic experience. A creative cuisine free of the cultural heritage of traditional restaurants that go after the Michelin stars, and at the same time without being labeled as one of the usual fine restaurants, brasseries, or bistro restaurants. Relay again became a star in the Michelin Nordic Cities 2019 Guide and was ranked 39th in the list of 'World's 50 Best Restaurants' in 2017. Relay has also been named the world's most sustainable restaurant in 2016. The chefs have traveled around the world to find gastronomic delights and mouthfuls that turn their legs away from guests. The wine list also consists of a large number of good European wines. The atmosphere at Relay is unpretentious, warm and inviting and easy to feel at home in.”
