We are so excited about this weekend, if you have met us before then you’ll know that we like loose plans that make space for magic.
So here are the details
Centrally located, easy to get to, and home to iconic Copenhagen institutions like the coffee collective, we’ll be meeting at Torvehallerne food hall on frederiksborggade, near norreport street metro station(get directions below).
If the weather isn’t great then after checking out torvehallerne’s offerings, we’ll head over to paludan’s books and cafe. It’s a lovely second hand book store and coffee shop to while away time with new friends.
Otherwise, we’ll head in the opposite garden towards the botanical gardens (botanisk have) and the king’s garden (kongens have), take some snaps, hang out and take in the beauty of Copenhagen!
Meeting point: Torvehallerne, Frederiksborggade, København, Denmark
Meeting time: 1 - 1:15pm

Public transport: An almost comprehensive guide.
A few years ago, they used to have a clip card system, which was epic because each clip card had a limited amount of “clips” or journeys, and you could use one card for a group of people. Or at least, this is what we were told by a lovely person at Copenhagen train station. Since then, a rejsekort has been introduced which is hella complicated and we don’t need to get into that here.
Ok, so the travel card you need depends on whether you are flying in for the meetup and heading home, or staying for a few days and want to cram in as many sights as you can
If you are flying in for the day, your best option is to buy a city pass at the airport office (follow the signs, they are super clear and staff are more than happy to help you out). There is an oyster card (rejsekort) equivalent, but from our own research and advice that we have been given, it works out cheaper to buy a city pass (they range from 24 hour to 72 hour). Which are available from vending machines at the airport and train station.
If you want to travel a little further, you can go for the 24 hour pass. It’s valid in the entire region of the capital, within a 50km radius...but it doesn’t include travel to Sweden.
And If you are staying for a few days, a Copenhagen card might be better suited to your needs. It includes free travel and discounts
There’s a calculator on their site to show you how much you will save, based on the attractions you would like to visit (they will tell you if you won’t save anything, which is handy!) and you get unlimited travel on trains, buses, metro and harbour buses throughout Copenhagen and to and from the airport.
