I love to get together with my friends and have Sunday brunch at Nobel Bopel, a small and charming cafè with a retro vibe at Møhlenpris. Make sure to show up early, their brunch is very popular.

Copenhagen doesn't have any rooftop bars, but there's a cemetery located right in the middle of my neighborhood, Nørrebro, called Assistens Kirkegårdenand it's one of our favorite spots in the city. It's almost like a gothic maze, without the vampires and zombies, though you should be aware of flashers lurking behind the gravestones.
