Sip local brews at Nørrebro Bryghus, a multiple-medal winner at the 2010 World Beer Cup. Attend a tasting with beer ambassador Kasper Larsen ($16), then ascend to the second-floor dining room for North Sea–fish bouillabaisse and Pacific Summer Ale, a Danish malt ale made in collaboration with Brooklyn Brewery.
Order the seven-course “Picnicbox” ($25) a day in advance from Meyers Deli, a Gothersgade outpost just outside the city’s oldest park, King’s Garden. Find a spot on the lawn overlooking the seventeenth-century Rosenborg Castle and share Nordic snacks like salted salmon and liver pâté.
Wander among free ballet performances and classical musicians at Tivoli Gardens, a refined amusement park in the city center that dates back to 1843 ($15). Grab a gourmet hot dog from the Løgismose stall near Andersen Bakery—the organic pork sausage with chanterelle sauce on a marbled rye bun is a favorite ($6)—and find a seat for the 11:30 p.m. laser-light show over Tivoli Lake.
