What Do Copenhageners Do on a Cold Winter Day?

10am Start your day with a sumptuous brunch, voted among the best in town several years in a row. Canteen in 52, Nordre Frihavnsgade, serves mouth-watering brunch delights till 3.30pm every day, except Monday. 11am Indulge yourself with a shopping spree in Nordre Frihavnsgade, an undiscovered shopping mecca offering chic interior stores, stylish children's clothing and toys, sophisticated second-hand fashion, glamour dresses, home-made filled chocolates and much more. Noon Continuing on, you will soon reach Classensgade Street with a wealth of designer shoe and furniture shops, jewellery boutiques, and quality clothing stores for adults and teens. A collection of special brand-name stores you won't find anywhere else! Don't go on Mondays, when most of the shops are closed. 1pm If you need to rest your well-travelled feet, Kaffeplantagen & Vin at 11, Classensgade, is a stylish option for expertly brewed coffee and "possibly the best sandwich I have ever had" as one food critic put it recently. 2pm If your shopping craving is not yet sated, stop by Moshi Moshi in 40, Dag Hammarskjölds Allé. Moshi Moshi started out selling select designer fashion, later Moshi Moshi Mind opened next door, offering organic body care products and comfortable, breathable yoga apparel. The most recent addition is Moshi Moshi Shoes dealing with brand name footwear such as Marc by Marc Jacobs and Repetto. Moshi Moshi Shoes was voted one the best new shops in town 2008. 3pm Grab your shopping bags and head for the Lakes, the city's most favoured promenade and breathing spot. Follow the right lake shore towards the centre. Cars are banned, but you will meet hordes of strollers, joggers, picnickers, and duck-feeding children on your way. In winter, in the unlikely event that frost sets in, the lakes are turned into a gigantic ice skating rink. 4pm Just before the second bridge you turn right. You are now in Nørrebro, a vibrant neighbourhood and home to some of the city's most original shops and cafés. The Sankt Hans Torv Square and Elmegade Street are perfect points of departure for a tour of the area. 5pm In Guldbergsgade Street, right in the middle of it all, you will find the Empire Bio cinema, an oasis for amorous couples, complete with cup-holders, extra leg room, and double-seated kissing rows in the back. 7pm Hail a cab and head to Vesterbro (or take bus no. 5A from Kapelvej to the Vesterport S-train station). "Lê Lê nhà hang" in 40, Vesterbrogade, is an immensely popular Vietnamese street-kitchen style restaurant with great food and affordable prices. The place fills up fast, so you may have to wait at the well-stocked bar a bit. No table reservations. 9pm Vesterbro is also home to the White Meat City, a huge partying spot jam-packed full of funky venues. Try the hip and hectic restaurant/café/bar Karriere, or the more relaxed but equally popular Jolene Bar featuring some of the city's best DJs. 11pm If you are more a beer-kind of person, and if you like a good game of pool or table football, Larsens Plaz, 43, Gammel Kongevej, is likely to be right up your alley. It doesn't get more local than this! Midnight If you are in town on a Friday or Saturday night, don't miss the Vega Nightclub, 40, Enghavevej. This is easily one of the best clubbing venues in Copenhagen! Excellent DJs make the dance floor throb and pulse. Should your tastes run to softer music and swift table service, then climb the stairs to The Vega Club located one floor up. Another excellent clubbing option is Ideal Bar, 40, Enghavevej (Wednesday to Saturday). This intimate dance venue is part of the Vega complex, but the music changes from night to night, as do the cocktail crowds. See you out there!
