Guide to: Østerbro

Insider’s Guide: With its numerous greens and parks and short distance to the centre of Copenhagen Østerbro is a popular place to live for reasonably well-off families with small children.

This neighbourhood is home to many embassies, Denmark’s national stadium, Parken, and a flurry of quality shops, restaurants and cafés in the best end of the spectrum.

Right on Trianglen, the central square of Østerbro, you find the ingenious design store Normann Copenhagen in a refurbished old cinema building. This place is huge and always has tremendously interesting displays and styling and offers a great selection of extraordinary design, fashion and shoes for men, women and children.

A few steps around the corner you find the charming Nordre Frihavnsgade – the perfect break from the busy Østerbrogade. In number 13 is Pour Quoi a great shop for classic – and often quite expensive – fashion with a touch of luxury bohemia and plenty of sequins on top. Now that you are here, you might as well visit the tiny store Voigt, which is crammed full of an impressive selection of mainly Danish high-end fashion brands.

If you managed to pay a visit to the beautiful Hirschprung Museum with its wealth of Danish 19th century art in the picturesque Østre Anlæg park just opposite The National Gallery of Denmark, you then ought to go and have a modern Danish lunch at the restaurant Aamanns Etablissement on Øster Farimagsgade just near by.

Surfing the wave of the new Nordic kitchen head-chef Adam Aamann has with great culinary skill reinterpreted the Danish open-faced sandwich and lunch. You can have open-faced sandwiches with beer and snaps or hot lunch courses with excellent wines. The restaurant is super cosy and very small, so book in advance. Prices are in the low end of mid-range.

Behind Fisher is a chef, whose Danish heart beats for rustic Italian cooking. Following two years in the kitchen of a three-starred Michelin restaurant in Rome he took over Erlands Pub on Victor Borges Plads by Nordre Frihavnsgade – the square that locals have dubbed Hjertepladsen – and opened Fisher, which he calls a ‘pasta pub’. Fisher has retained the pub’s oak tables and the slot machines as well as the laid-back atmosphere. Try the homemade pasta for 135 kroner or an entire menu. In the summer you can sit outside on the romantic square, and it is advisable to book in advance. Always open for lunch and dinner – Sundays as well.

Park Bio is the only cinema on Østerbro. But the small cinema with 250 seats makes it a point of honour to provide a perfect visual experience for its audience. With their experience in 3D and light technology Park gives the bigger cinemas a good run for their money.
