At the very end of Amagerbrogade (the main shopping street of Amager) lies one of the weirdest and geekiest places in Copenhagen. Situated between a driving school and Copenhagen Airport, lies a small fast-food place where hordes of people gather whenever the weather is nice. Old people, young people, parents and their children, they all come together to participate in the fascination of flight.
The main feature of Flyvergrillen – the Airplane Grill, is that it is right next to the two main runways of Copenhagen Airport. You have a great view of planes landing and taking off. They are actually quite large when you see them this close. On top of happy children eating ice cream, you can meet the Plane Spotters. Usually there is a couple of spotters hanging out with their notebooks and binoculars, taking note of every plane coming by. I’m always surprised how fascinated people are.
The fast-food place itself is not that big. There is room for 15-20 people inside, but they have a large outdoor seating area with view over the runways. There is a playground for the kids. The food is traditional danish fast-food: mediocre burgers, pork sandwiches, hotdogs and ice cream.
