Don't waste your time with the plastic atmosphere of Parken Stadium and FC Copenhagen. Brøndby is the real thing, with terracing behind the goals, plenty of singing and good, reasonably-priced beer. Brondby are currently the only Danish team playing in Europe (in the UEFA Cup group stages) and are reigning Danish league and cup champions. Manager is Michael Laudrup.
Games are normally on a Sunday. Take the S-train to Brøndby Øster, where a special bus will take you to the stadium. Alternatively it's a 20 min walk from Glostrup station.
It’s secret mostly because Google Earth’s satellite photos are so outdated that it doesn’t even exist. Copenhagen’s new riviera, Amager Strandpark, was inaugurated this year and puts a massive recreation area with beaches, lagoons and outdoorsy pursuits within a 15 minute bike ride from the city. A man-made island juts out into the sea towards Sweden from the island of Amager just to the south of Copenhagen and will undoubtedly be a popular summer destination. Copenhagen doesn’t lack great beaches. There are long stretches to the south and trendy beaches to the north, but the new beach is an impressive attempt to create new, exciting areas for recreation close to the city.
Located along Amager Strandvej on the island of Amager.
Reached by metro to Lergravsparken station and a 15 minute walk along Øresundsvej or by bus #12 from the Town Hall Square or the airport.
