"Olufsvej on Østerbro will always hold a special place in my heart. It is such a beautiful, colorful street – in sunshine and in snow. The neighbor community here seems to be extraordinary, as if they are all quite closely related and enjoy the sense of community. I ride my bicycle past this street nearly every day, and the ambiance here is always indescribable. These cute houses make me forget that I am in the biggest city in Denmark."
Fresh air in Denmark's biggest park #Fælledparken
"Østerbro is an area of Copenhagen where many families decide to settle, and I think that the nature and outdoor areas are alpha omega. During the weekends a lot of parents meet in Fælledparken to chat with a take away coffee in hand, while the children are playing. Fælledparken is the biggest public park in Denmark, but it is definitely also worth strolling though some of Østerbro's many other green areas like the Citadel, Churchill park or Svanemølle beach."
"I feel a calm and tranquility at Østerbro that I don’t feel anywhere else in Copenhagen. After visiting different areas in the city, I love coming back to Østerbro, slowing down and feeling totally relaxed. Østerbro is also very close to Sankt Hans Torv and the diverse atmosphere at Nørrebro, which I also highly value. And then we have the lakes close by. I always get so inspired by seeing the seasons change here."
"Bopa Plads is in my opinion the best place to feel the “provincial ambiance” in Copenhagen. Here you find an idyllic atmosphere where everyone knows everyone and where the combination of trees, shrubs, buildings and colored lamps will put you in a summer and party mood - all year round. Café Pixie is a place I especially associate with many good memories: from dinner outside with my family to parties inside with my friends."
