Østerbro is the quiet boy in class. But that doesn’t mean that this part of the city is boring. If you know where to go, Østerbro is an exciting place to visit.

In Østerbro, you will find interesting places to visit such as Geranium on Per Henrik Lings Allé, which is perhaps one of the best restaurants in the world. But Århusgade is also worth a visit if you’re hungry because here you’ll find the French inspired, ambitious Davids Bistro, which many locals think is the best restaurant in Østerbro. However, it is closely followed by Gustavs Bistro on Classensgade, which serves a solid, gastronomic experience in pleasant surroundings. If you’re hungry for pasta, the people at Hos Fischer at Victor Borges Plads are reportedly the only ones in town who know how to make pasta.

Krummen & Kagen on Nordre Frihavnsgade is definitely worth a visit as well if the sight of heavenly cakes makes your mouth water. They serve heartwarming, homemade cakes and bread of high quality. Another popular place is the cozy Bopa Plads where Café Bopa and Pixie reside. Both are very popular places among the locals.

You can of course also find designer stores in Østerbro and one of the coolest is Normann Copenhagen, which is located on Østerbrogade.

If you’re into unique movie experiences, one of the coziest and most atmospheric movie theaters in Copenhagen is located in Østerbro. The cinema, Park Bio, on Østerbrogade shows all the latest movies, just like the movie theater chains, but this jungle of strange things and movie posters has a more personal and historic feel to it.

You don’t have to go all the way to Bellevue Beach to find salt water and a sandy beach as Svanemøllestranden was inaugurated in 2010 with its 130-meter-long pier. If you’re in the mood for a refreshing ice cream, you could stop by Olufs, which some would argue is one of the best ice cream stores in the world. The store offers a wide array of tempting, homemade ice cream bars.

The only cocktail bar in Østerbro is called Kitjn and can be found on Århusgade. The bar is kitchen-themed because at house parties, people usually gather in the kitchen anyway. If you’re in the mood for beer, you could swing by Tap10 on Østerbrogade, where the focus is on Scandinavian beer.

In 2014, Østerbro got its own men’s hairdresser, Carl’s Barber Shop. The modern barbershop focuses exclusively on men’s hair and gossip magazines have been replaced by vintage comic books. When your hair is done, you could visit Gourmandiet, which is one of the best butchers in town with its world-class steaks.

And then there is, of course, Fælledparken. The 100-year-old park has 11 million visitors every year and for very good reasons. Den Franske Plads has since 2012 been a playground for both children and adults and another popular attraction is the big paddle pool for kids, which has existed for many years and was renovated recently. The traffic playground is also a hit among the youngest residents of Østerbro, where they learn about traffic rules in a fun way.
