Guided tours at Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek

What – A guided tour through the collection “From block to body. French and Danish sculpture”, which includes pieces by Rodin and renowned Danish artists Sinding, Bissen and Jerichau.

Why – It might just be me, but I’m a big fan of sculptures. And if you’ve ever been to my favourite museum in Paris, the Musée Rodin, you’ll probably take the chance to see some more of his great work. Plus, I love guided tours as they always allow me to learn something!

Where – Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek, Dantes Plads 7

When – 24th-26th July, 13h

How much – DKK 15 for the guided tour (plus normal admission to the museum, DKK 75)

RAW 2014

What – Denmark’s largest clubbing event, combining mainstream and underground electronic music

Why – Over 70 artists + 8 stages + 6.000 people = 12 hours of music and party fun! (or maybe a fraction of that if you prefer)

Where – Lokomotivværkstedet, Otto Busses Vej 5A

When – 26th July, start 19h

How much – DKK 170 (standard), DKK 210 (late ticket)

Free movies at Ørstedsparken

What – For three nights in a row, MIX Copenhagen is showing movies for free at Ørstedsparken. Since MIX Copenhagen is an LGBT film festival, all movies shown revolve around the subject, with a screening of “The Rocky Horror Picture Show” on Saturday, to celebrate the movie’s 40th anniversary.

Why – Watching movies outside is always fun, and with the weather being like this, there’s almost no excuse not to go!

Where – Ørstedsparken, Nørre Voldgade 1

How much – Free

Shiny Happy People – Danish contemporary art exhibit

What – You might have heard this thing about the Danes and happiness – they keep popping up at the top of all those happiness and quality-of-life rankings. This exhibition showcases seven Danish contemporary artists to explore a bit more of why exactly the Danes are so happy all the time (although a recent study suggests it’s in the genes).

Why – If you’re interested in art generally, and Danish art more specifically, you should take this opportunity to get to know some of the contemporary artists in Denmark. Who knows, maybe you’ll find a great new painting for your living room, too?

Where – Bredgade Kunsthandel, Bredgade 67-69

When – 26th June – 16th August

How much – Free

Creative kebabs in the Meatpacking District

What – The popular Bakken in the even more popular Meatpacking district (Kødbyen) hosts a series of special food events which center around a grill and a popular “drunk food”: kebabs. Served with homemade sides as well as freshly baked bread, British chef Lee Tiernan will be preparing the traditional dish with a creative twist.

Why – If you’re into food, a bit of a hipster atmosphere, and trying new things, you should head out to Kødbyen to try one of these creations!
