Nørrebro Bryghus (Nørrebro Brewery) is one of the first Danish micro breweries. It opened six years agao and they brew some nice beers. Their food isn't bad either.

Car share

One of the cool things about car share is that you can always find a parking spot. Free parking at any spot all over the city and special slots allocated to only shared cars. That's great!

Pain vs. quitting

'Pain is temporary. Quitting lasts forever'/ Lance Armstrong. Printed on the wall in DGI Byen.

I think he should know what he is talking about.

The Mountain version 2

A couple of weeks ago I posted a photo of Bjerget (The Mountain). The cool appartments in Ørestaden. This is from the other side of that very same building.

I like this photo. Old vinyl records and one of the real old fashioned record players. You can find it at Ricco's Coffee in Ryesgade.

The Irma Girl

Irmapigen (the Irma Girl) is one probably one of the oldest Danish trademarks still in use. It is from 1904 and represents the Irma supermarket chain from 1886. That makes it the second oldest supermarket chain in the world, only beaten by Sainsbury's in England which is from 1869.

Different view

Sometimes you get the chance to see the city from a different point of view. This is from a private roof top terrace in Pilestræde. The dome visible in the picture is Marmorkirken (Marble Church)

No neighbours at all

This is probably one of the most funny street names in Copenhagen. Naboløs means 'no neighbours'. I've always thouhgt that was a quite funny name.

One of the best places to buy cakes is Lagkagehuset (The Layer Cake House). I strongly recommend their strawberry pies. And on a cold morning or afternoon you probably take a coffe as well when you there. But be prepared to queue up for a while, because it is almost always as crowded as this.

Pusher Street

Christiania - or Freetown Christiania - is a self proclaimed autonomous neighboorhood in Copenhagen. It was claimed in 1971 and is one of the biggest tourist attractions in the city. However if you wanna visit it you better get started. These years the government is trying to 'normalise' the area - whatever that means.

The photo shows the entrance with Pusher Street in the background.

Fall in the Botanical Garden

From inside the Botanical Garden this morning. The thing floating on the water is part of an exhibition abouton climate change. It floats freely and goes where the wind and climate takes it. There are eight of them around in the garden and they will be there all winter.

A night of culture

Last night was Kulturnat (Culture Night) in Copenhagen. Heaps of places were open for the public all night. Great atmosphere! This is National Gallery of Denmark.

My Friday favourite

I have to admit it. Emmery's is my favourite friday morning treat on my way to work.

The Custom Authorities were having a small 'stop cheating' event today at Rådhuspladsen (Town Hall Square). One of things they focused on was counterfeit products, i.e. fake products like this bag.

The Mountain

This building is called Bjerget (The Mountain). It is a pretty spectacular appartment construction.

The wing of a wind mill

People gathering to watch the unloading of the wing for a massive wind mill. But they are not building a wind mill in the Botanical Gardens (where the picture is taken). It is just for an exhibition I was told.

Fund raising

The first Sunday in October is always the day when Danish Red Cross have their big day of fund raising. Volunteers knock on peoples doors and ask for a contribution to the NGO. I don't know the exact English word, but the dictionary insists on calling it a 'national subscription'. Let's just call it fund raising. The thing I enjoy the most about it is the chance to look into peoples homes when they open the door.

Taking the bus

Not much to say. A bus driving through the city at night. This one is bus No. 43.

Umbrella cycling

This is a very typical sight in Copenhagen. A rainy morning doesn't stop anyone from taking the bike.
