About this listing
This lovely spacious apartment is placed only 5 minutes walk from busy areas full of trendy cafés, designer boutiques, bars and restaurants.
What we love about our home is its brightness and peaceful atmosphere.

There is such a cosy feel to the apartment, lots of corners with an arm chair or a sofa to throw yourself in after a busy day exploring Copenhagen.
If you can't be bothered to go out one night and are too tired to cook, the building houses both an organic wine bar (Sabotøren), a great take-away with healthy food (Essen) and a cosy cafe/bar/restaurant (
During your stay, you have access to all rooms in the apartment.
Interaction with guests
We will not be present during your stay but you are more than welcome to give us a ring in case you have questions.
The area is very relaxed and child friendly and at the same time only 5 minutes away from the lively "latin quarter".
1. Jægersborggade, a small street full of charming little hand craft and design shops and quite fashionable restaurants and bars. This street used to be gloomy, but during the last 5-7 years it has flourished and lifted the whole area. This is a ten minute walk from the front door. 10 min. walk.
2. Superkilen - including "Den røde plads" (The Red Square) designed by the world renowned Danish architect BIG. It's kind of kitsch but very lovely. Imagine Indonesian swings, a Moroccan fountain, a giant Japanese octopus Slide and a Saudi bus stop. And a big red and pink and orange square. Walk down Mimersgade and you cannot miss it! 10-15 min.
3. Next to Jægersborggade, you find Hørsholmsgade with the lovely café Taxa on the corner. If you want to try a high quality, tasty version of some traditional Danish "smørrebrød", you MUST try "Kartoffelmaden"! Scrummy! 10 min. walk.
4. The old cemetery "Assistensen" is surrounded by a characteristic yellow painted brick wall that you see when you reach Nørrebrogade in the other end of Sjællandsgade. The cemetery is a place for relaxation and sun bathing which always strikes newcomers as rather morbid. But you have to love it. The red squirrels, the tomb stones that date back to the 18.th century and the peace on the other side of the wall that makes you forget that you are in the middle of the city. 5 min. walk.
5. The best ice coffee at "Kaffeplantagen" on the corner of Elmegade and Guldbergsgade, Skt. Hans Torv. 5 min. walk.
6. The old bath "Sjællandsgade Bad" next to the church Simeons Kirke. You will pass it on your way towards Nørrebrogade. It has been closed down but revived by enthusiastic locals that keep it open on a charity basis. The bath and its interior stems back from a time when only a few had their own shower. Especially the male department is really worth a visit. 5 min. walk.
7. "Literaturhaus", a little old church in the street Møllegade, has been converted into a house events like poetry readings often combined with live music. Definitely worth a visit. 5 min. walk. (If the old Jewish cemetery is open, you should pop in there too. It was established in 1694 but hasn't been used for many years. Open on Tuesdays and Thursdays 15-19.)
Buses leave every 5-10th minute to the city centre. It takes max. 10 minutes to reach the centre by bus 6A (bus stop at Tagensvej, direction Rødovrehallen) or 5A (bus stop at Nørrebrogade, direction lufthavnen/airport).
Walking distance (5-15 minutes) to Sankt Hans Torv, Blågårdsgade or Jægersborggade full of cafés, bars and trendy shops.
Walking distance to the lakes or the park (10 minutes).
Finding a parking space along Sjællandsgade is normally easy but costs around 9 DKK/hour.
Parties are not allowed. Smoking can only happen in one of the yards.
