    Brøndby IF / FC København

    by ValbyDK Updated May 17, 2013

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Two of the biggest football clubs in Denmark are located in the Copenhagen area: Brøndby IF (my favourite club) and FC København (FC Copenhagen).

    Brøndby IF has won the Danish Premiership 10 times since 1985 (last time in 2005) and is also many times Danish Cup Winners. The semi finals in the 1991 UEFA Cup and a first round participation in the 1998 UEFA Champions League are the best international results. Brøndby IF's home ground, Brøndby Stadium, was rebuilt in year 2000 and now has a total capacity of 29,000 spectators. The average attendance at Premiership matches is around 12,000 and normally you can buy tickets at the stadium before a match.

    FC København has won the Premiership four out the last six years and they have just won it again this season (2012/2013). They have participated in the UEFA Champions League in 2006 and again in 2010 where they reached the knockout phases before losing to Chelsea. FC København plays their home games at Parken, which has a capacity of 38,000 spectators. International games could be sold out, but in the Premiership you normally can buy tickets at match day.

    Check the web pages for fixture lists and directions to the stadiums.

    If you are visiting Copenhagen and wants to attend a football game I'll gladly try to arrange a small "VT-football meeting"...

    Trekroner - Fort Light

    by grandmaR Updated Aug 4, 2009

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    I am always on the lookout for lighthouses which are a special part of sailing and boating.

    This is an active lighthouse that is on the waterfront in the port.

    The lighthouse dates from 1926 (although the original station was established in 1836). The light is a round tower with lantern and gallery of 66 ft tall with white, red, or green light depending on direction, and is painted white

    The lighthouse is on a 19th century fort is on a manmade island located in the Copenhagen harbour which was originally built to defend Copenhagen.

    During the summer the DFDS Canal Tours Hop On-Hop Off waterbuses have a route to Trekroner Sea Fort and the Forts ferries from Langelinie Quay take only 7 minutes to get to the Fort. I had hoped to visit the fort on the waterbus, but the weather was so cold and rainy that we only looked at it from the bus (photos 4 and 5). Then later, we saw the lighthouse from the cruise ship

    If we had gone, we would have had a view overlooking the city and the Sea of Oresund and apparently there is a café in newly renovated rooms

    Billiard

    by TheView Updated Sep 11, 2007

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    At bars in Denmark there is played a game of billiard named Skomager (Shoemaker) it’s a more then 100 years old Danish game and is only played in Denmark. The billiard table for the game is a bit larger then a pool table and the pockets is a bit smaller in the centre of the table there is put up five cones, four smaller around a larger in the centre. You have a red cue ball and two white balls. The aim of the game is to get from 60 points you start with down to zero. The points is made from hitting the two white balls with the red cue ball (4 points) or getting the two white balls to hit each other (4 points) you can only make 4 points from making whites or reds in a turn, getting a white ball in to a pocket (2 points) or by knocking over the cones with the white balls after they have been into a side cushion (2 points for each cone or 6 points for the centre cone if you only knock this single one over). This is all good points that you subtract from your 60 points until you get to or below Zero, the last point has to include a cone knocked over. If you make fouls like knocking over a cone (same points as above) with the red ball getting the red ball into a pocket hitting the red ball of the table (6 points) hitting the cones direct with the red ball (6 points plus the points for the cones knocked over). This foul points is subtracted from you opponent/s score. You can play it with more players then two and its played in turns so you only get one shot at the time.

    The rules my differ a bit depending on the local custom. The normal thing is to play for a round of beer or a beer from loser to winner/s or what you agree upon.

    Keeping fit in CPH

    by skullcrusher Written Apr 10, 2007

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Since I spent about a week in town, I had to find a good gym to pump some iron at. There´s a pretty good gym very close to the train station and across the street from Tivoli on Vesterbrogade street called SATS. Not the largest place in the world, but with just enough equipment to get the job done and a friendly staff. The artificial lakes of Sank Jørgens Sø, Peblinge Sø, & Sortedams Sø (a short walk from the town center) are great places to get in a good running session ..... as well as other places. To top it off, Copenhagen is well designed for bikers and there are plenty of places around town were you can rent a bike for a day/week/etc. The quality isn´t the best, but should do if all you want to do is get around town and exercise your legs. There are also quite a few swimming complexes: a place called DGI-Byen, Tietgensgade 65, is one of the larger ones - plus it´s just a stones throw from Tivoli.

    Football aka soccer, hand ball are the thing here!

    by reverb Updated Jun 28, 2004

    The Danes are very proud of thier football aka soccer and thier handball teams. Being a football fan myself I love it. Right now it's the Euro Cup prelimbs. so the pubs are full with happy drunken locals cheering on thier favorite player's. You will find the Danish flag everywhere and people in jersey's wherever you go. Make sure to stop in a pub and join in on the excitement. Even if your not a fan it?s so much fun to just drink with the locals and meet new people. Just enjoy the cheap entertainment.

    Equipment: Wear a football jearsy and make sure it's the right one!!!!Have a smile on and a beer in one hand and I think you'll do ok. Check out the Irish Rover for a place to sit and watch the game. It's a personal favorite of mine. Tell them Jason sent ya.

    Falledparken is a park area with lots of green fields that can be used for whatever sport you like, but football/soccer would be the most obvious as there are goals set up for it. A great place to let your kids play around as well. There are also skateboard rinks, and right next to the park is Denmark's official football stadium, Parken, where both local and international matches are played.

    Bowl whilst waiting for the train!

    by Sjalen Updated Apr 30, 2003

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Bowling is always fun and here at Axelborg Bowling you can combine it with waiting for the night train as you are sooo close to the Central station. Enter through the Piccadilly bar where you pay and order drinks and off you go! As the alley is upstairs as well, you have a view of city street life as you play. DKK 200 for an hour so that's not a lot if you are several. You might have to book in advance if you come in high season and want to play late.

    Equipment: Renting of shoes for DKK 10 and you're off!
