Rooftop bar Copenhagen

Rooftop-grade: 4/10
Prime season: May-September
Residents: 775 000
Climate: temperate

Copenhagen is somewhat of a small big city, with mainly older and lower buildings and not really any sky scrapers. Thanks to this, and a climate with outdoor season being mainly during the summer months, it is no big surprise that the city is not crawling with rooftop bars. But given the history of being a great bar and restaurant city, it is a bit strange that there is not more 5th-ish floor rooftop gardens and terraces. This might however very well be about to change, as recently two great new rooftops opened in the city (both are in this guide), and we have a feeling many more is about to follow.

About Copenhagen

Copenhagen is the capital of Denmark, located on the island Zealand, right at the water of Öresund. The city's most famous landmarks include the amusement park Tivoli, The Little Mermaid statue and the walking and shoping street Strøget. It is also home of the Carlsberg brewery. It has quite a small city center that is easy to get around in, and it is one of the world's most bike-friendly cities. Two very well known, and very different, areas of Copenhagen are Christiania, a haven for people with alternative lifestyles and famous for and open mind towards drugs, and Nyhavn, a picturesque area right by the water with colorful buildings and lots of cosy taverns. Outside of Copenhagen is Kastrup Airport, which is Scandinavia's busiest with about 2 million passengers a month.
