Two things: Vandreklub and Studenterhuset. By joining Vandrekluben (the hiking club), I was able to meet other students from many institutes of higher education in Copenhagen, spend time together hiking and at some social gatherings, see many parts of Denmark, southern Sweden and even central Norway. If you like hiking a lot, I would suggest you look up Vandreklubben. Studenterhuset (the student house) is a cafe where students can come to read, meet, get a quick bite, etc. It is in the heart of downtown. Every Wednesday night is International Student night. International students from all over and a few Danish students pack the place, drink a lot, dance some, and have great conversations. I would highly recommend it! Unfortunately it is only during the academic year, so those of us who arrived during the summer for language study really had a hard time finding a place to hang out.

Studenterhuset on wednesdays is an obvious choice- and sign up to be a volunteer bartender or DJ! Rust and Vega are good nightclubs for dancing, but drinks are expensive. Friday nights are reserved for faculty Fredagsbars- cheap beers and dancing with Danish uni students! Best one is with the political science faculty at CSS, other good ones with English and History, Biology and Law.

I mostly went to parties in the hall of residence. These were organised by student committees and we also had our own bar. It was much cheaper than going to the clubs in town (which can be very expensive) and was more fun than the student house where all the international students go because there was more of a mix of people (Danes and foreign students).

There are too many to name within greater Copenhagen. There are tons of stores and cafes along Stroget, the largest walking street in Europe. Of course the best finds are on the streets just off this area. Christmas time is the best time throughout the city especially around Nyhavn, Radhuspladsen and Kongens Nytov which is beautifully decorated.

Everything in this city is worth seeing at least once. Christiania is a great place to be any day of the week. Tuesdays at the gay and lesbian night at Rosie McGees, Wednesdays at Studenterhuset for the International Cafe, thursdays, fridays and saturday, too many options to write here.

the club "Vega" is always a good choice and free before one student house on Wednesdays for meeting international students the "Istedgade" in Vesterbro is the street with my favorite cafes and bars and of course there is Christiania as a place that should definitely not be missed
