With fantastic food and amazing sights, make the most of your time in Copenhagen.

FC Copenhagen’s stadium, Telia Parken, is located just north of the central part of the city. The closest train station is Østerport, only a six minute journey from the city’s main train station, and the stadium is a 15-minute walk from the station.

Something to eat:

Nose2tail – Acclaimed as “Copenhagen’s first sustainable gastropub,” Nose2tail is a unique dining option for the environmentally minded traveler. The philosophy behind the restaurant is to source ingredients and meats from local farms and to use every part of the animal to minimize waste. Set in a cozy basement lit with candles, the atmosphere has been widely praised by travelers. The menu features delicious eco-versions of pub classics such as pork tenderloin with mushrooms, pork cracklings and Danish rice pudding. The venue also offers a selection of great Danish beers.

Something to drink:

Mesteren & Lærlingen – Once a slaughterhouse bodega, but now stands remade as one of Copenhagen’s best watering holes. The tiled walls of this hot spot are often packed with every stripe of the city’s populace: you’ll find neighborhood butchers having a drink to relax after a hard day’s work, along with young students and locals hyped up for a long night out. Drinks and food are dirt cheap. This also happens to be one of the few remaining venues which permits smoking indoors – all factors which may contribute to the bar’s universal popularity. A rotation of four different DJs mix some great music throughout the week, making this bar a great stop at any time, day or night. Flæsketorvet 86, 1711 København, Denmark
