Jernbane Café Copenhagen

Jernbane Café – Track number 7

Which door will you take? Copenhagen’s main train station has 3 entrances and here’s a treat for you after your long travels. Look for the exit with stairs going down towards the street: Istedgade.

When you enter the street, the first thing you will see is the characteristic green front of Jernbane Café. Step inside.

The place is not only a great bodega, but it has a fun and playful agenda to it. The whole room is decorated with train-accessories, casino machines and pictures of different guests hanging from the ceiling. And you can get your picture up there as well.

The winning price for drinking 17 beers is a silver medal, but if you reach number 27 and a golden medal – your picture will be taken at the bar, which will be exhibited in frames hanging down the ceiling.

Up for the challenge? Just go to the bar and ask for the first pilsner number 7 – which is Jernbane Café‘s own brand and remember to ask for a “discount card” at the bar and get a “stamp” for every beer you buy and then GO FOR THE MEDALS while you’re in town!

I prefer outside to enjoy the passing people. Also because it can get pretty smoky inside.

Bonus info: the express toy train goes around the room every hour or so. It’s a fun little event.

Winner takes it all (+ hangovers).
