We have a wonderful view of greenery, church towers and domes in this spacious, light and extremely well-situated 2-bedroom flat near the Copenhagen lakes. Cafes and restaurants abound, and you can walk into the city center in 15-20 minutes.
This sunny apartment is 136 sq.m. (1335 sq.ft). The living space consists of a living room, dining room, main bedroom (with a king size bed), guest room with a comfortable double bed, bathroom/shower, eat-in kitchen. There is available closet space in both bedrooms.
It is a corner 4th floor apartment with a beautiful, open view of treetops and the city (you can actually see late night fireworks from Tivoli from the living room windows), a short block from Sortedam Lake and its cafés, just steps from Lille Triangel (Little Triangle) and some of Copenhagen’s best cafés and restaurants, a few blocks from Nordre Frihavnsgade, one of the best shopping streets in the city. Østerbrogade (especially past Triangel) is also a great fashion street. The apartment is nested between great parks: Fælled park, where atomic physicist Niels Bohr went on his famous walk with his former German student, Heisenberg in 1941, possibly discussing issues concerning the creation of the atom bomb), unique playgrounds (in Fælled Park), the Citadel (Kastellet) on the other side of Østerport Station, where you can walk on the ramparts overlooking Copenhagen's Langelinie and the Little Mermaid; Østre Anlæg in which you'll find The National Gallery of Art and The Hirschsprung Collection. The newly renovated Botanical Gardens are also just down the block.
It's an easy walk through the parks to the center of Copenhagen.
A great starting point for joggers!
The building is from the 1890’s which means NO elevator, but the wide, elegant stairway is an 'easy' walk-up. This apartment is not good for anyone with a physical disability.
Facilities: Flat-screen TV, WIFI, fully equipped kitchen with dishwasher, combined washer/dryer in bathroom, linens and towels, 2 bicycles (his and hers) in the yard, and a baby folding bed (must be requested ahead of time).
There is a courtyard with benches and tables for your use if you wish.
By the way, there is a ringbinder in the apartment with lots of tourist information, city maps and a print out of the list of good local restaurants mentioned below.
Apart from one room which we use for storage space, guests are welcome to use the whole apartment. There is also a courtyard with benches and chairs available for use.

Interaction with guests
Either Leif or I or both will be there to greet you when you arrive and show you around. We can be reached by cell phone or email, but otherwise, you will be on your own.
Other things to note
Biking is definitely the best way to get around Copenhagen. There are bicycle helmets in the hallway. It is not obligatory, but recommendable, especially cycling in unknown territory. Make sure you use hand signals for turning and stopping. Also, it is illegal to talk or text on a handheld phone while biking.
As there is only a small cleaning fee, we hope our guests will leave the place neat and clean, as they found it. It is much appreciated if guests remove the linens.
Please dispose of all refuse when you leave. See the guidelines for how to get rid of garbage.
No coffee grinds in the sink please (or as little as possible).
Please be considerate of others in the building. No loud music. No piano-playing in the evening.
