The Five-Point Weekend Escape Plan

Feast on Nordic Cuisine in Copenhagen


3. What to Do

Tivoli Gardens also offers daily big band concerts and pantomime theater shows on different stages throughout the park.   

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.
