This fall we got a tight guide of Copenhagen from Joel Alter and Ena Cosovic the team behind True Rotary Recordings. We hope you enjoy their favorite spots on your next visit to Denmark’s coastal capital.
This is the perfect spot to just relax and have a break. Enjoy some of Copenhagen’s best skaters or just watch people passing by. Den Røde Plads, in the heart of Nørrebro, is a great example of how the city of Copenhagen embraces people and creates spaces for interaction.
The Nørrebro district is where people from all over the world meet. It’s a lively environment and also probably the area in Scandinavia with the most shawarma restaurants. Our favourite is Kösem. There’s a competition every year in Nørrebro for the best shawarma and Kösem won the price the last two years. We recommend the simple pita that comes with a freshly baked bread. And don’t forget to ask for the chilli sauce.
Stefanos is a pizza joint on cozy Stefangade street run by the sweetest and most service-mindedTurkish guys we know. The pizza is great, but we love the burger. They don’t serve alcohol but they won’t mind if you bring your own glasses and a bottle of wine. And once again, don’t forget to ask for their homemade chili sauce, it’s delicious.
At Cafe Dyrehaven you can have it all. Start your day with breakfast and a coffee, relax with a classic Danish pilsner and just wait for lunch. Here you will eat the classic Danish smørrebrød. Dark rye bread with any topping you could think of. Fish filé, prawns and egg or roast beef, just pick your favorite. Later on you could have dinner or just drink more beer or cocktails while the place fills up with a lively and friendly crowd. This is where we like to just hang out with our friends.
