Don’t know what it is about benches that attract couples. Especially in the summer benches are frequently occupied by amorous pairs in various stages of courting. The long-lasting light of the nordic summer provides a Hollywood glow. Any bench overlooking a body of water is preferred or try the King’s Gardens (Kongens Have). This pursuit isn’t purely a summer one. My wife and I gravitated to a bench at the tail-end of October on the first evening of our relationship.
For a sharp bit of contrast I’ll recommend a dimly-lit table in the corner at the jazz club Lafontaine at 4am on a mid-week day where loving mumbles dance across the glasses of whisky between you. It’s the oldest jazz club in town and features live jazz on Friday-Sunday.
For the benches try the lakes surrounding the city centre or find one by the harbour.
The entrance to the King’s Gardens can be found on Gothersgade.
Lafontaines Jazz Club is located at Kompagnistræde 11
