So, I’ve been here a couple of times and it’s not a big place. It’s actually an old train station, which is now being used for theater, comedy gigs, concerts, movie nights etc. I don’t know much about the place and its history, but I do love to come here.
As a visitor, the first thing you should do, is take a walk around the area of Aksel Larsens Plads. That’s what I usually do. There is so much stuff to look at, so just go out and explore the area. You’ll find lots of great Arabian food and Turkish delights or you can eat tasty Italian pizza nearby, at Tribeca.
When you reach your limit on multi-cultural foods, art and graffiti wall paintings, head back to Lygten Station and go watch whatever is on the program for the evening.
My first experience was joining in on a Japanese movie night, which was a true local experience. The volunteer workers there, had put on Japanese headbands and served Japanese snacks and sake during the breaks. They got a 100/100 score from me that night! I’ve also participated in other movie nights, very funny international stand-up and tonight, as I’m writing this article, I’m going to see another comedy gig.
It’s always fun to go, it’s cheap beers and a really nice crew behind the events. The entrance fee depends on the night, but always cheap – sometimes it’s even free.
Also, I’ve noticed that there are expat groups hanging around here …
