Good range of beers, including the all-important cask ales (essential if you don't care for lager) and an authentic small pub feel to it. A very welcome place to visit if you like drinking bitter, but also if you just want to sit in the...More

English pub atmosphere with great real ales. A real gem. Only draw back is it's so small! Won't put us off coming again next time we are here.

Still one of the best beer palaces in Copenhagen, but I was very disappointed to learn that a staple, Schneider's Aventinus on tap (only place in Denmark) had been cancelled. Not wise. Well, Charlie's still rule.

This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its
blend of charming old buildings and bold new
architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well
as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner
city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which
consists of three buildings, two of which are new and
situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and
venues of the inner city and its surrounding
