Where to relax: DOKK1

Ulla Rasmussen: “DOKK1 is a public library – and so much more. Here, you can read newspapers, books, join public events, have a coffee or sit down and watch the panoramic view of the seaside. Furthermore, it’s a great place for children – their playground and indoor toys are highly popular. Like all public libraries in Denmark, DOKK1 is free to enter. Don’t miss the café, which has a wide range of delicious coffees and fresh bakeries.”

The innovation hub: Godsbanen

Else Flytkjær: “Godsbanen is a former freight train station that’s buzzing with life and creativity today. It has many workshops, specialized in everything from jewelry to wood or textiles. In addition, they have a small theater, Katapult, that puts on many interesting shows. Outside, you’ll find graffiti and tents for meetings, that give the place an urban, rustic feel. People are friendly, so you’re welcome to have a look around. Godsbanen is open from 8-16 on weekdays, and entrance is free.”
