Sure, NileGuide has all the elements you need to plan the perfect holiday: but once you’re there, it’s nice to know a little more about the place: what’s going on, what’s happening, what people are talking about. Of course, most of Copenhagen’s media is written in Danish, but here’s a rundown on where to find English news and events listings in Copenhagen.
- The Copenhagen Post. Calling itself ‘the Danish News in English,’ the Post is a well-established, weekly expat newspaper available in both a print and online version. It can be found in a number of bars, cafes and newsagents in the Danish capital, as well as at the Wonderful Copenhagen tourist office and in the central library on Krystalgade (hovedbiblioteket). In addition to covering the week’s national news stories, there’s also the ‘In&Out Guide’, a what’s on section relevant to both tourists and long-term visitors. www.cphpost.dk
- Politiken. An English version of this highly-respected national newspaper is available online only. As well as a translation of the day’s biggest news stories, there is also a number of Copenhagen guides, including restaurants in three price categories, wine bars and nightlife. www.politiken.dk
- Copenhagen This Week. This free booklet wasn’t taken too seriously a decade ago, but after some serious editorial changes CTW is now a worthwhile resource for Copenhagen’s tourists: available in print from the tourist office or online at www.copenhagenthisweek.dk
- Wonderful Copenhagen tourist office produces an impressive English version of its website that is kept up-to-date with upcoming events and news. www.visitcopenhagen.dk
