Things to Do....

Torvehallerne

Food Hall with fresh grocery and tons of food stalls.  Fresh fish food stall had amazing selection of ceviches and fresh salads.

Copenhagen Street Food Market @ Paper Island

Waterside food hall and marketplace with food stalls & trucks. It is on Paper Island, which got it's name as it used to be the home of the Danish Press.  But when they left, the halls were ready to be filled with food and drink.  It is a bit more hipster of a vibe than the other food halls.

Freetown Christiania

Christiania is a is a self-proclaimed autonomous anarchist district, right on the outskirts of city centre.  Car free and home to the famous green light district, selling all types of cannabis.  This hippie district is made up of 1,000 inhabitants and is definitely something to see.

Copenhagen Street Food Market

Waterside marketplace featuring independent food stalls & trucks selling snacks, meals & drinks. The island is home to the grey industrial halls that served as paper storage for the Procurement Association of the Danish Press for many decades, hence the name Paper Island. When they terminated their contract, the halls were left empty - ready to be explored and experimented with.
