This feature looks a bit weird as it was posted from my ipad.

In Christmas time in Denmark, it is tradition to drink the hot, wine based drink gløgg. Gløgg typically consist of red wine, schnapps, raisin, almonds and typical Christmas spices. Here are some places, where you can buy it in Copenhagen! (But it's also very easy to make it yourself, just google for a recipe). It also comes in a white wine version and even an apple version. Always drink it with a bunch of delicious, hot æbleskiver. Nom nom nom.

Gløgg at a wine bar

Made with quality red wine, port wine, schnapps and brandy, this is a potent gløgg. You might want to leave your bike after having this. It's made by a former Michelin star receiving chef.

65 kroner for a glass with a bowl with raisins and almons, so you can decide how much of it you want in your drink! Comes with delicious homemade Christmas cookies.

At R Vinbar, Gammel Mønt 14, Kbh. K, open tue-thu 16-01, fri-sat 16-02

The artsy gløgg

Bankeråt, Ahlefeldtsgade 27-29. Open mon-fri 9.30-24. Weekends 10.30-24.

The classic gløgg

Having been served since 1954, this gløgg is a classic one. Added port wine, cognac and dark rum. Made with red wine and raisins that have been pickled for 8 days with the wine and spices. The only sweetener in this one comes from the pickled raisins. 35 kroner for a huge glass with raisins and an almond in, no cookies,

At Hviids Vinstue, Kongens Nytorv 19 kælderen, 1050 Kbh. K. Open sun-thu 10-01, fri-sat 10-02.

The exclusive gløgg

If you are in Tivoli, pay a visit to the fancy restaurant Nimb in the garden. They have a super fancy gløgg made with 12 ingredients. For 85 kroner, you cget a glass and a huge bunch of cookies.

Do it. Tivoli is decorated for Christmas in December and its very pretty.

At Nimb, Bernstorffsgade 5, Kbh. K.


The relaxed gløgg

Events this weekend

Time for it again; Weekend!


NASA re-opening

This used to be one of the most (in?)famous clubs in Copenhagen with champagne washing extreme. Classic almost-all white interior with an aquarium-wall. The name and the surroundings will be the same, but the concept will be broader, so that the party can be bigger. The DJ will play classic club music, but also RnB and swingbeat. Gone is the champagne washing, but you might still spot a Danish celebrity or three. Cocktails and bottles sold at reasonable prices (not sure if that's to be compared with the level before the reopening? Only one way to find out!). One thing's for sure: Nasa is not just any club!

Tonight they host a re-opening party before the Grand Opening Party next friday. Write them at this email adress to get more information: The party starts at 22:00.

Social Bar opening reception

Another bar is just about to open - but for the first time. The concept is "Cocktails, Service and Art". Go to the opening reception to check it out: Friday and Saturday at 20:00 - true reception style with drinks for you.

At Teglgårdsgade 13, København.


Ice Skating

The ice skating rink outside Frederiksberg Have will open this weekend. It's not particularly big, but it's one of the nicest in Copenhagen, with cute benches and lights in the trees surrounding it. You can rent skates for 45 kroner a pair (only cash, and the closes cash machine is pretty far away, a 10 min walk each way), but you can also bring your own. If you have ice skates already, you can use the rink outside the rental opening hours! 

Opening hours: Mon-Fri: 11-19, Sat: 10-20, Sun: 12-20.


Given that a bunch of you will be partying all weekend, I suggest you enjoy your hangover. Because from next weekend, it's all about the exams to come. :))

Beautiful lanterns tomorrow at 18:00

Tomorrow at 18:00 at Blågårds Plads, Global Dignity Denmark is having a happening, where you can decorate your own lantern and get something hot to drink. At 19:30, they will gotogether to Sortedamssøen and let go the lanterns over the lakes of Copenhagen to let them shine over Nørrebro. 

There are plenty of places to grab some fast and relatively cheap food at Blågårds Gade. Go there early and have a coffee or a beer in one of the small, nice places. You should definitely go, because this is not something that's a very typical activity in Copenhagen - or Denmark. It'll be a beautiful sight!

Brænder du efter at sende en lanterne til himmels? Så har du chancen i morgen. Global Dignity Danmark – som arbejder for at fremme værdighed, skabe mere respekt, forståelse og nærhed - har udråbt d. 22. november til Værdighedens Dag. Det markerer de på Blågårds Plads kl 18. Der vil være noget varmt at drikke og man vil kunne dekorere sin egen lanterne med budskaber, løfter, ønsker - og en tegning af Superman, hvis det er det, man er til. Kl 19.30 går vejen så til Sortedamssøen. Her slipper man sin lanterne fri og sætter lys over Nørrebro. La'ternerne flyve!

Celebrating Thanksgiving in Denmark

There are some of you who would normally be celebrating Thanksgiving with your families in November. Since some of you are now here in Denmark, I thought I'd give some tips on where you can celebrate with other people who enjoy Thanksgiving, even though some of you already did celebrate (even if it's not really before the 22nd) or plan to do a dinner in the dorms.

For those of you who don't know, a typical Thanksgiving dinner is almost always composed of a whole turkey with stuffing (bread based filling you stuff inside the turkey), lots and lots of gravy. The rest of the dishes depends on family tradition and where in the US you're from. Some of them are mashed potatos, cranberry sauce, various vegetables, sweet potatos and PIES!! Pecan pies, apple pies, berry pies or the all time classic: Pumpkin pie! Om nom nom nom!

Actually, I've never taken part in a Thanksgiving dinner myself, this year I might give it a try!

Here are some possibilities to get a prepared Thanksgiving dinner, so you don't have to sweat with the turkey yourself! Unfortunately, Thanksgiving is not as common in Denmark as Halloween, for example, so the events are somewhat expensive - you can always get together and each of you could bring a dish instead.  The most important is that you are together and have a nice evening.

This turkey does not approve of Thanksgiving! But it looks delicious!

The ultra fancy way:

Guerilla dining - Thanksgiving style! The cooking team Silver Spoon make food events! And at their Thanksgiving event, you can experience the extreme-food discipline: "Turducken". A chicken inside a duck inside a turkey! Triple poultry for the hungry, and wealthy, student as the tickets are unfortunately 500 a piece and an extra 300 for drinks (but I guess you don't have to buy the fancy wine too). But then again - it's more of a food-art event than just a meal.

Time: Nov., 25th (18:00), the adress is given when tickets are purchased here:

The less fancy - but still fancy - way
American Chamber of Commerce is hosting a Thanksgiving dinner at the Marriott on Kalvebod Brygge. The American ambassador will give a speach, there will be music and competitions too. The menu will be classic but with a fancy twist. And with Californian wines and American beer too!
Time: Nov., 25th, (16-20) at Hotel Marriott, Kalvebod Brygge 5. Price: 425 kroner. Sign up here:
NFL and food
Another traditional part of Thanksgiving is football! Watching it, of course, because you are going to be just as stuffed as the turkey after eating. Thanksgiving Day Classic marks the season start and is the second largest football event after Super Bowl! 
Go to one of the following sports bars and enjoy! At O'Learys they even have a Thanksgiving menu with banana cream pie as dessert: 199 kroner.
Time: Nov., 22, (19:00) at Bernstorffsgade 14, Copenhagen. Sign up here: 33338220 or here
Hard Rock Thanksgiving
Another dinner-option: At Hard Rock Café, you can get a huuuuge menu for 199 kroner including pumpkin pecan pie and coffee.
Time: Nov., 22nd, (19:00), at Hard Rock Café Copenhagen (next to Tivoli at the Central Station side). Book a
I know being an international student is about learning from different cultures, but not only the ones in the country you study in - learn from each other. I think there are people from over 20 different countries among the international students at DTU - go and learn from each other. It could end up being a tradition you are going to keep alive yourself!
Holiday wishes,

Events this weekend

Here we go;


Unfortunately, I couldn't find any super-events this evening. So get out and check out some of the bars in Copenhagen! Tivoli is now open again, with its Christmas theme, for example.


International Restaurant Day

On this day, you can open a restaurant for the day, and sell and serve the food you want to. Register here to make your own restaurant:

Or check out all the other ones. A perfect and funny way of getting to know people in Copenhagen and have cheap, homemade food!

There are fourteen pop up places to choose from in Copenhagen on the map, but I bet you can find many more!

Legendary Coma Club Party

The last Coma party will take place at a secret location (but check out the Facebook page for more information). The Coma Club parties are legendary because they are totally insane. You have to dress to the occasion - otherwise you will not be allowed to enter! The theme for this party is "China". There will be awesome music by Sukkerlyn (dancehall), Alfredo and Emil Lange (DJ's) among many others. And about 1000 partylicious people from Copenhagen dressed in crazy outfits.

Tickets are about 300 kroner. It starts at 22 and goes on until early morning.  Buy your ticket here:

The location will be revealed tomorrow, but it's at "a central place in Copenhagen".

Dress this crazy! Not sure if it's actually possible to dress more crazy....


Christmas Markets

Yes, it's that time of the year. Visit one of the Christmas markets this weekend and find something nice for the family or friends. Ravnsborggade has a very nice one. All the antique shops, designers, cafés and galleries will have stands on the sidewalk with Christmas candy, glögg (hot wine with almonds, spices and raisins).

From 10-16 at Ravnsborggade, Sankt Hans Gade, Nyesgade og Ravnsborg Tværggade at Nørrebro.

Best wishes for a nice and calm weekend,

tirsdag den 13. november 2012

Café Spotlight #2 - Café Retro

After a tip from Marjorie from Holland, here's a post on Café Retro.
Go there and have a beer or a coffee with purpose! The café does not make any profit from selling what they do, because all the profit goes to India and Africa (true Danish style - we like to give, we like our coffee break and we like to feel good about doing something for the world in the sense that we contribute by doing what we would have done anyway - enjoy a coffee break at a nice café). You can read on the webpage, which projects the café - and you, if you go there - are supporting:
They have live music on thursday-saturday at 21. Make sure to check the event page:
There are two of the Retro Cafés (one in inner city in Knabrostræde and one in Jægersborggade (which is a phenomenon in itself - word has it that this is the hippest street in Copenhagen with eco candy and clothing shops, recycled clothing, music and art shops)).
The atmosphere in both of the cafes is really relaxed; lean chairs, hammock chairs, old-style wooden furniture and cushions (you get a feeling of a hippie-grandma’s living room), in Nørrebro part of the walls are covered with old Donald Duck-comics and one has a photo exhibition on it.
As for food, they have soups, nachos, cake and various snacks. If you show a valid student ID, there is a student discount on some of the things in the menu.
The city-Retro also has live music Fri – Sun at 21.00. One more great thing about Retro: the prices. Not even the backpacking students can say its too expensive! Plus, there is free wifi.
Find them here:
Knabrostræde 26, 1210 KBH
the far end of Jægersborggade, 2200 KBH N
Opening hours:
Mon: Closed
Thu: 12-00
Fri-Sat: 12-01
Sun: 12-23

Bar Spotlight #3 - Tjili Pop

Tjili Pop on Rantzausgade is actually also a café, but I tend to hear more about it in bar-context - and not for nothing.

It looks sooooo cute from the outside. The beer is cheap, the room is charming, the people are very nice and the food is good. They event have live music (mostly singer/songwriters, folk, pop, acoustic) on some nights too! Go go go!

Like them on Facebook to stay tuned on events:

Find it at Rantzausgade 28, 2200 København N 

Opening hours:
Mon-tue 10.00-00.00
Wed 10.00-01.00
Thu 10.00-02.00
Fri-Sat 10.00-03.00
Sun 10.00-00.00

Apologies for missing updates

Hi all!

Sorry for the missing updates. Had to deal with some personal stuff, but we're back on track now!


fredag den 2. november 2012

Events this weekend!

This weekend offers some very classic Danish events friday and sunday.


J-dag (aka Snowfall aka Snowstorm aka Christmas Is Here)!

J-dag marks the day when the Christmas-beers can be bought. It's not only Tuborg (but I do agree, they have the best marketing department), but ALL kinds of Christmas beer. Go to your nearest pub, a beer bar in Copenhagen or one of the Campus-bars, because from 15:01 it's on!

I will make some shameless advertising for Diamanten, where you can get super offers on the Christmas beer "47", which I personally find better tasting than the classic Tuborg Julebryg.

This is what you'll se on TV

This is what you'll see on the bar desk

This is what you'll see in the streets

Doktor Bombay and Hit & Hide in S-huset

Yes, tonight you can go and enjoy the best of your childhood memories in the form of the songs that never really left your brain! And they are definetely going to stay there for a couple of weeks after tonight. Tickets are 80 kroner for members of PF, otherwise 120 kroner. I think there still might be tickets and that the show will start around 22.


Copenhagen Street Festival

From 10-20 in Boblehallen, Carlsbergbyen, Pasteursvej 10, 1778 KBH V, you can go and experience free workshops, shows and live music for free! It's all street related and it's usually a great success!

BMX Jam & Workshop.

Delicious free music at Statens Museum for Kunst

At Statens Museum for Kunst, you can - for free - experience some nice music from 19-midnight. Artists including Christian Hjelm (former lead singer in Figurines and now solo), Ida Gard, Unkwon, IANDAWN and Stella Polaris Soundsystem with all their talented DJ's. Facebook-event:



Hubertusjagten is the other classic Danish event. Every year, the first sunday of November, there will be held a horseback race in the beautiful surroundings in Dyrehaven. The race starts at 10, but be there well in advance - it's an old tradition and therefore the areas where the race is going to take place are going to be stuffed with people! The most popular spot is where the riders may risk to fall off the horse into a small pond!


If you want to see people fall from horses, then it's also possible when it's not at the pond!

Sooo many people!

Demolition in Valby

If fancy horseback hunts without real hounds or foxes is not for you, then you can go to Valby, where they will demolish a huge building (108 m tall) with lots of explosives! It's going to make a great scene for a photo to send back to the family at home! :) The action starts at 12, this is how you find it from Ny Ellebjerg Station:

Best weekend-wishes,

Bar Spotlight #2 - Fidel's

This bar is in the spotlight because I've only had fun times every time I went there.

Prices are standard for cocktails! And I promise you, they are delicious. The selection is enormous, seriously! Check it out here: *drool* (Psst, try the Georgia Mint Julep - I'm never going back to mojitos again). They also have several good whiskeys if that's what you're into!

There's a dance floor and maybe a bit crowded - but in the good way! As you'd expect at a bar full of people having a good time. 

As for the usual people there, it's the right mixture of businessmen/-ladies and students/people like us, out drinking and dancing. Sort of like Kulørbar, but with better drinks and less hot in there.

And about the atmosphere - they are going for sort of a Cuban vibe (according to their website...). That's not exactly what's going on, but people are very happy and careless in the good way - I suppose that's how close we get to a true Cuban vibe at Fidel's! Either you love it or either you don't (if you don't, Vinbaren is on the corner and is also very nice!).

Opening hours:
Tue-wed: 18-00

Thu: 18-03
Fri: 16-05
Sat: 18-05

Note that you must be at least 20 years to enter tuesday-thursday and at least 23 on friday and saturday (but usually they are large with the age of the girls!).

Find them at Dronningens Tværggade 9, KBH K.

If this guy was making cocktails, the vibe would definetely be more Cuban...

Or maybe her!

Events this weekend

The weekend starts early this week!

Besides from the concert in Templet tonight, there's a party at Jolene in Kødbyen, celebrating Frank Oceans music. Today he declared on Facebook and Twitter that he's quitting music. If you believe it, is up to you. A whole bunch of DJ's will be celebrating his music tonight from 22-03 at Jolene, Flæsketorvet 81-85, KBH V. No entrance fee! YAY, free events!!!

In the free-events category, there's a very interresting one this weekend: 

Ungdomshuset's birthday (only parts of the event is free)

Ungdomshuset (literally "the Youth House") was the popular name of the building formally named Folkets Hus ("House of the People") located on Jagtvej 69 in Nørrebro, Copenhagen, which functioned as an underground scene venue for music and rendezvous point for varying autonomen and leftist groups from 1982 until 2007 when—after prolonged conflict—it was torn down, and later also for its successor, located on Dortheavej 61 in the adjacent Bispebjerg neighbourhood. Due to the ongoing conflict between the municipal government of Copenhagen and the activists occupying the premises, the building on Jagtvej was the subject of intense media attention and public debate from the mid-1990s till 2008.

Police started to clear the building early on Thursday, 1 March 2007. Demolition began on 5 March 2007 and was completed two days later.
Since the eviction in March 2007, former users and supporters held weekly demonstrations for a new Ungdomshuset, the demonstrations initially starting from nearby square 'Blågårds Plads' (and later Gammel Torv) every Thursday at 5 p.m. and going to various places in Copenhagen, the starting point being later changed to Gammel Torv in downtown Copenhagen as demonstrators said they were getting closer to the politicians concerning a solution for a new Ungdomshus at an old school.
The demolition sparked some of the most serious riots in Copenhagen in recent times. However, it ended happily, and those people are really friendly when you're not destroying their place. :)
In the summer of 2007, an initiative known as G13 announced that on the October 6 they'd stage a massive public attempt to squat an old public waterworks located on Grøndalsvænge Allé 13 in northwestern Copenhagen to be used as a new Ungdomshuset. The event, which gathered several thousand, was announced as non-violent, but was met with heavy opposition from the police who arrested 436 people and threw large amounts of tear gas. Recognizing that the event, which had received heavy public attention, had been carried out with peaceful means, on October 11 Ritt Bjerregaard—the Lord Mayor of Copenhagen—invited spokesmen from Ungdomshuset to have negotiations concerning a peaceful solution to the conflict.
The new Ungdomshuset opened successfully on July 1, 2008 in North-West Copenhagen's Bispebjerg area, after more than 16 months of weekly demonstrations.

Now it's been 4 years, which is why they are having a 4-day celebration of the 30 years with youth houses in Copenhagen (they started the party yesterday). If you want a glimpse into this world, go and check it out. People are very nice and will gladly tell you about their story with Ungdomshuset.

The new Ungdomshus

Tonight, there will be vegan gala peoples' kitchen with 3 courses (60 kroner, sign up here: There will be 2 bands and fireworks too! Reservation is a MUST. The event starts at 18:30 at Dortheavej 61, KBH NV. On Facebook:

Tomorrow there will be a giant punk-concert with 8 bands in two rooms! The price is between 61 and 69 kroner (you decide - the reason they chose these numbers is that they are the street numbers of the recent and old Ungdomshus).

Saturday will be easygoing in the afternoon with cake, entertainment, speeches, coffee and such from 16:00. From 21:00 there will be 14 bands covering hiphop, balkan, ska, electronic, dancehall and some surprises (rumour has it that the surprises will include DJ Rosa Lux (good!), Stilen R Profilen (don't know them, so it must be hip!) and Master Fatman (which means lots and lots of loooove).

Their book café will also be open all weekend.

The event poster.

Tomorrow, you can come and celebrate the club night TIPI in Kødbyen. Entrance is 50 kroner before 01:00. There will be music by DJ Alex Celler, which means dance focused house music! Plus, he's quite handsome!

Saturday, there will be bunches of Halloween events all over town, one of them in Culture Box. Dress scary! Entrance is 70 kroner, from 23-06 in Kronprinsessegade 54 A, KBH K. Here's the Facebook event:

My weekend started already!


Concert in Lyngby tonight (October 25th)

Klumben and Raske Penge will be playing in Templet (close to Lyngby Station tonight).
100 kroner and you'll be able to enter this awesome event with two of the most brightest shining stars of Danish dancehall! Lyrics are in Danish, but go anyway! I promise that it'll be a lot of fun! I'd go myself if I didn't have to work!

Only thing is that you might want to be there well in advance before the show. There guys are seriously popular. The show starts at 20:00.

Check Klumben out on SoundCloud:
And Raske Penge:

I really recommend this. Please, please go there and tell me how awesome it was!

Still from the music video to the song "Intelligent".

The guys also go by the names Klumb1 and Ras Money.

Sensation 2012 (November 3rd)

Some of you may know the Sensation-parties from where you live. Others may have heard or read about them. The Danish party will be on November 3rd. For the mere sum of 79 Euros (!!!), you can be the happy party-goer and experience something above and beyond the friday bars at DTU.

This time will be the 5th time that Sensation will take place in Parken. However, this year, the party will be without any Danish DJ's. But there are still many things that will be the same. You must be dressed completely in white to enter the party. There will be a ton of lights and decorations and a fancy lineup including Irani-American Sharam (one half of the duo Deep Dish), Riva Starr, Sander van Doorn, The Man With No Shadow and Mr. White.

Imagine this: There will be about 20.000 people dressed all in white and you'll get your photo taken at the entrance with the possibility of, all of a sudden, seeing it in giant size abouve the dancing, sweating crowd!

The party starts at 18, November 3rd in Parken.

Swedish House Mafia (November 26th)

You probably already know and I'm not the biggest fan of ESN (they are just trying a liiiiiittle bit too much), but I want to let you know that Swedish House Mafia will be performing in Forum on November 26th (monday) at 20:00. Tickets are 550 Danish kroner, so if you really want to go and do the ESN dance to live music - this is the event for you. Maybe take all of ESN with you. Buy your tickets here:

Best dancing wishes,

"Play Danish-Day" in the radio (P3 or 93,9 FM)

I've been wanting to do a post about Danish music, but this week, the annual "Play Danish Day" came up. It's name is self-explanatory. Only Danish produced music (sung in Danish, English and some of it even Spanish!). As long as Danish people have been working on it..

So do yourself a favor, turn on the radio (preferably P3, they have a very varied selection and numerous genres). Some of my favorites have already been in the air: Dizzy Mizz Lizzy (Silverflame), Lukas Graham (Drunk in the Morning) and Outlandish (Warrior/Worrier). Beautiful. I know that the spoken parts of the programs on this station is in Danish, but consider it this way: Find P3 on web radio here:

You get to practice your Danish, get to know tons and tons of Danish music and have something nice in the background when you do your homework. 

The "Play Danish Day" is also concerning the other radio stations of DR. Eventually, check out P6 Beat (web radio here: or DAB) if you rather want to know some of the underground Danish music.

Bar Spotlight #1 - Vibes Apotek

New bars are popping up everywhere in Copenhagen these days, one of the less recent being Vibes Apotek (Vibes' Pharmacy).

Situated in the Nørrebro-part of Copenhagen, the usual guests are likely to be awesome and young as yourselves. However, there's a bit of way to walk/bike if you want to continue after midnight in Central Copenhagen.

The "pharmacy" claims to be able to cure following "diseases": 

Tired and common malaise (fancy word!)
Broken hearts
Writers' block
Impatience and old love
There is a back-room with a DJ, and Persian rugs on the walls. The chairs are wooden logs and the rooms are decorated with boar-heads and pharmacy-like bottles, sirups and extracts on the wall and old vacuums for holding flowers in. The drinks are dirt cheap: black absinth, "Headfuck No. 1" (vodka and cucumber-drink), "Black Milk" and the pink "Barbie-Squirt"-shot among others. The prices are seriously student friendly (drinks from 35-40 kroner!!) and the ambience very relaxed and lounge-like. Sometimes they have different music-events. Check them out on Facebook:

Find them at Ydunsgade 5 (a side street to Jagtvej), 2200 KBH N
Open thursday, friday and saturday (19:30-midnight).

Café Spotlight #1 - The Log Lady

The Log Lady is one of my favorite cafés in all of Copenhagen.

It's very unusual to find such an unspoiled and unique café so close to Rådhuspladsen. However, that's the case with this café, which is by the way named after Twin Peaks' Log Lady. They serve amazing coffee and sometimes even cherry pie (only when cherries are in-season, but don't worry - the otther cakes are nice too). The prices are cheap and they also have an awesome organic breakfast buffet! You can also get drinks, wine etc. And the music is always nice.

The rooms are suuuuper nice. I won't ruin it for you by writing everything here - just go there and get the feeling back in your fingers after staying outside in rainy, cold autumn-Copenhagen.

Tilbage til naturen. The Log Lady er opkaldt efter den kvinde, der rendte rundt med en trækævle under armen i tv-serien 'Twin Peaks', og indretningen af cafeen er da også fuld af naturindslag, som træstubbe til at sidde på, udstoppede dyr, potteplanter og store skovtapeter. - Foto: Lærke Posselt

Where: Studiestræde 27, København K
When: Monday-friday at 13-23, saturday at 14-23. Closed on sundays.

Events this weekend

Last weekend before the autumn break can mean two things: You're going to be really busy because you have assignments/tests/exams after the break (or you're going out travelling and have to catch up with uni stuff) or lots and lots of parties!

I vote for the latter.

The events this weekend are as follows:


PF Costumed bar crawl on DTU Campus

Starts at 17:30 behind building 101 (where there will be FREE BEER!). Dress in a theme with your friends or just come in a costume. It's always a lot of fun. This year the first bar on the tour is going to be Diamanten (where there is also a trucker-theme party going on - maybe that's your costume?)!

The program can be found here:

Hope to see you all!

My team and me will be going as awesome old people!

Halloween party at Egmont Kollegiet

The PF bar crawl will gather around 23:00 in S-huset/Kælderbaren. If you rather want to go to an awesome afterparty - go to Egmont Kollegiet. They have a halloween-themed party and entrance is free. The party starts at 23:00. Read more here:

How to get there: Super easy. Go with bus 150S from the motorway next to Campus. Get out of the bus at the stop called "Vibenshus Runddel". You should see a gas station and a tall brownish building. Go to the entrance of the tall brown building.

Seriously, these guys living here have some craaaaazy parties.

Culture Night 2012

If you don't want to drink your brain out, just want something nice and cultural or just another afterparty, the culture night is on this friday.

All over Copenhagen there will be cultural happenings. Your ticket will be the KulturKit (90 kroner) and you can find the closest place to buy it here: (just enter your 4 digit citycode).

The program can be downloaded here (PDF):

There are hundreds and hundreds of happenings! And an afterparty at VEGA, where you can only enter with KulturKit (23-03).



Tivoli will have open during Halloween - from this friday and two weeks on.

Go there and see the decorations, try the rides... etc... prices are as usual. 

All the best,
