Flea Market Remisen
Even in April the weather can still be chilly and wet in Copenhagen. So what is there to do that will keep you in the warm and dry? Check out the Flea Market at Remisen which is near Trianglen at Østerbro.
This indoor flea market is a popular place to go on a Saturday or Sunday and you will be able to mix with locals as well as a few tourists. The atmosphere is very relaxed and you will probably find quite a few families as well.
As it is a flea market you can expect a huge variation in what each stall is selling with everything from clothes and shoes to fixtures and fittings- basically whatever the Østerbro people can find in their attic. So keep your eyes peeled and you may find some hidden treasure.
The market is on every other weekend and opens its doors at a very civilised 10am, so you won’t need to worry about getting up early, plus it’s free to get in. Østerbro is a little way out of main Copenhagen but is still easy to get to. Your best bet is probably to head to Kongens Nytorv and get the 1A bus which goes directly to the Trianglen.
Right next to the market is the Cafe Trianglen which serves up some tasty local food and often has live entertainment too. If you have noticed the unusual shape and decor of the building this is because it used to be the waiting room for the tram stop and goes by several cute names locally – “The Bee”, “The Turtle and “The soup bowl”.
The Remisen Flea Market is good for a bargain shopping fix or to mix with the locals away from the main city.
