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!

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

Øresundsfestival in Malmö

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