Where do young Copenhageners hang out?

There are many good places to hang out when you are young in Copenhagen.

Copenhagen is full of good places for young people.

Life outside

In the summer many people sit in the parks, around the lakes, or on the Dronning Louise bridge with their friends and a beer. There are often many people on places in Copenhagen that are close to the water, for example on Islands Brygge and on the Amager beach.

Bars and cafés

The city is also full of bars and cafés. The old smoky bars are often filled with young people, especially because the beer it cheap, and the atmosphere is good. You can find these all over the city.

Istedgade in Vesterbro and Blågårdsgade in Indre Nørrebro are places that are filled with young people and good bars.

In the Inner City there are many nightclubs and more trendy bars; these are often expensive.


In Copenhagen there are also many music festivals, street festivals and film festivals that attract students, for example the heavy metal festival Copenhell, the street electronic festival Distortion or the documentary film festival CPH:DOX.

You can find them on the Internet.
