Bremen Teater in Vesterbro will screen all three Denmark matches during the World Cup 2018 and without an admission fee. So, if you want to see Denmark playing against Peru (16.06), Australia (21.06) or France (26.06) in the historic theatre’s hall, make sure to book a seat in advance.

Tivoli Gardens

Tivoli Gardens will show 21 matches during the World Cup, including Denmark’s match against Australia. A 30-square-metre screen will be set on the open-air stage to broadcast the football matches from TV2. Even though the 10,000 free tickets that Copenhagen’s amusement park offered are now sold out, you can still watch the game in the majestic gardens by paying the Tivoli’s admission fee.

As the name implies, Pub & Sport is a place for those who like watching sports with a cold beer in their hands surrounded by people who share the same enthusiasm. The centrally located bar has 12 different TV screens that show all kinds of sports and games from all over the world and has a great selection of draft and bottle beers for all tastes.

Den Glade Gris

Bar, European, Danish

Den Glade Gris is one of the most popular bars in Copenhagen known for showing all kinds of sports on its TV screens. So, we weren’t surprised to hear that they will screen all football matches during FIFA World Cup 2018. Being voted the city’s best sports bar three times on AOK, it comes as no surprise that ‘The Happy Pig’ attracts the city’s most enthusiastic crowd during varies sports events.

Ørsted Ølbar

With a selection of 20 different beers on tap and 200 bottle beers and big TV screens showing all the major sports events, it’s no wonder Ørsted Ølbar occupies the top place on every football fan’s favorite-bars list. The cosy bar with the wooden tables and the relaxed atmosphere is located in the city centre, a stone’s throw away from Nørreport Station.

Cafe Guldhornene KBH always shows the Danish football team’s matches, so this year’s World Cup isn’t an exception. There are several TV-screens all over the bar, affordable drinks and usually, a loud crowd screaming ‘Skååål’ whenever the Danish team scores. If that sounds like the place you’d like to watch FIFA 2018, make sure to reserve a table for Denmark’s first game against Peru.

Another cool place with ice-chilled drinks and big screens broadcasting several games of the World Cup 2018 is SKAAL, a centrally located bar known for its large selection of different beers and its great variety of tasty snacks and Danish delicacies. It’s located in the heart of the city centre, close to the Round Tower.

What better place to watch a football game than in an authentic Irish pub? The Globe Irish Pub in Copenhagen’s city centre will show each one of this year’s World Cup games, so it’s the place to be if you don’t want to miss a single match while visiting Copenhagen. Irish delicacies, tasty burgers, fish and chips and of course high-quality Irish whiskey are some of the things you’ll find on the popular pub’s menu and the reason The Globe Irish Pub is a real favourite among locals.

It's the personal contact, the personal experiences. I love meeting people from all over the world... I really like getting to know everyone and feeling like I'm traveling with a group of friends.


I have so many places on my list, but I would really lobe to go to Africa. I consider myself an “adventure girl” and Africa feels like the ULTIMATE adventure!
