Summer is here! And even though May has been the sunniest month in Copenhagen for a long time, we are looking forward to a summer full of sunshine, happy people and cold drinks along the waterfront. June is a month full of things to do, and we just can't wait to get started. Anna, our student worker, has picked five things she'd love to do this month:
The city of Roskilde (my hometown) is located just by the picturesque fjord, a perfect day trip only 30 minutes outside Copenhagen. This is the only place in the world where you can conquer the water like a true viking aboard a viking ship. While you are there, you should also walk along the fjord or visit Roskilde Cathedral - the resting place for kings and queens.
No summer without jumping in the refreshing waters by the city's many habour baths or beaches. When the sun comes out and the degrees reach a tolerable temperature in the beginning of summer, you will find lots of people here. Our water is clean enough to swim in and even more beautiful to jump in at sunset. I'm very keen on jumping in by the mezmerizing Kastrup Sea Bath or Sluseholmen Harbour Bath.
We cannot talk about summer in Copenhagen without mentioning the new street food markets. I have been waiting for similar spots to pop up since Copenhagen Street Food on Paper Island closed down in 2017. Already, two new street food markets have opened. Broens Gadekøkken by Nyhavn and Reffen further out on Refshaleøen. These are definitely the place to be on a sunny June day in Copenhagen.
