5. Students Only!

Try visiting The Black Diamond library at night ; there is no need to bring your reading books.

The beautiful building by Slotsholmen hosts meetings, concerts and other events for students. The bookings are impressive – examples are the artist Dario Fo and author Julia Frank.

Visit the Students Only website to become a member. It’s free, just like the admission for the arrangements.

4. Christiania

In Christiania, the night is quite different to the free town's touristy atmosphere before the sun goes down. But inside the small concert venues and cafés, the relaxed atmosphere makes for a fun and peaceful evening. Unquestionably worth visiting are Operaen and Loppen.

Don’t forget the annual Christmas market, when the Christmas spirit abounds. Here, you might even find gifts you actually want to give to someone.

3. Movie club

For DKK 125 you can join the Cinemateket movie club for one year. As a member you can see one movie for DKK 40, which is approximately the same price as if renting a movie to see at home. Included in the membership are a news magazine and exclusive movie offers.

2. Concerts

Big names in small venues. On a student budget, you may feel like concerts are not cooperating that well with you. Try Loppen in Christiania, Drone in Nørrebrogade or Huset in Magstræde – concerts with Copenhagen’s local heroes performing for their enthusiastic local audience. The prices are hardly ever over DKK 100!

Other small and cheap venues are RUST, Ungdomshuset, and of course Studenterhuset.

1. Trendy meatpacking district

Kødbyen, the old meat packing district, is University Post's choice for the top night spot in Copenhagen. Located in Vesterbro, this is the best place if you want fun guaranteed without having to rent a party island.

Apart from the classic clubs Jolene and Karriére Bar, the area offers everything from tranquil restaurants like PatéPaté and Fiskebar, to upbeat nightclubs like Kødboderne 18.
