But now, the weekend is approaching fast, so here’s my list of things to do if you’re in Copenhagen!

It’s Lagersalg season!

What – Shopping, shopping, shopping! Lots of brands have clearance sales going on right now – for example Samsøe & Samsøe, Acne or Dryberg/Kern

Why – Because you can definitely get a bargain!

Where – all around Copenhagen

When – different days for different brands

How much – strongly depends on what you take home with you!

Øresundsfestival in Malmö

What – A music festival, mostly featuring lesser-known artists from Denmark and Sweden, but also e.g. Nabiha and Mads Langer

Where – different venues across Malmö

When – 30.+31. May, 17h – open end

How much – 1 day ticket 290 DKK, 2 day ticket 500 DKK (includes train tickets and admission to clubs after the festival)

More music: All-day house festival “Free Your Mind”

What – An all-day event with house music of all sorts, on Refshaløen

How much – free admission

More information – on the festival’s Facebook page


A different city walking tour – Lucifertour

What – An open city walking tour focusing on the spooky and occult, “following the devil’s footsteps”. The tour only takes place when there’s a full moon, or on other significant dates. Attention: the tours are in Danish unless otherwise stated, but English tours can be requested.

Why – Because it’s a different way of seeing the city – guaranteed!
