Week 22: 5 things to do in Copenhagen this weekend
Wow, these last couple of days have gone by fast, and a lot has happened!

Bottom right: Yesterday I ventured into Christiania for the first time ever and I had a blast with wine in the sun and a crazy concert at Loppen. Great burgers, too!
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

A different city walking tour – Lucifertour

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