About This Listing
The best reference I can give right now is that I love to live here and have worked a lot to make the place a personal place to live with art, items from my travels, potted plants etc. In summer I enjoy the view from my living room to the historic building across the street.
NOTE ABOUT BIKES and SECURITY DEPOSIT: You can use my 2 bikes, 1 male + 1 female, (free of charge!). The security deposit will only come in play if one of the bikes disappear while you use it, which should be rather unlikely after I had the bikes for several years!
Wifi, computer, cable TV, 2 citybikes (only by request and 200 euro in deposit in case of unlikely! loss), hi-fi set with good speakers, aux and docking for iphone, well-equipped kitchen, free parking 500m away or just outside for 4 euro/day. Optional a third person may sleep well on the couch in the living room, please notify me in advance. I may also supply an extra mattress to use on the floor if you like.
If I´m not travelling I would like to make contact and assist with help if you like (I'll NOT stay in the flat while you are there!). If I'm not at home you will normally have contact with my daughter Line.
So nice street to walk with lots of big trees and old apartment buildings - and street life and a laundry just 250m away. You will find many different take-aways & restaurants + the local bar Frb Ølbar and the cafe "Den Blå Hund" etc. etc. on nearby. You are 10 min walk from Nørrebro, the youngest, most ethnic & lively part of Cph.
Bike 15 min to Cph old town/pedestrian streets (remember to contact me about bikes before you arrive). Bus to directly to Town Halle Sq and Central station is just 5 min walk away. Other busses to different quarters of town even nearer. And metro is 10min away by bus (please see Guidebook)..
Please enjoy (refer to Guidebook for public transport or enjoy some walking or biking):
-a beer, coffe or meal in my favourite café Den Blå Hund or in Frb Ølbar at the corner.
-a walk or jog in Frederiksberg Have, the nicest park in Cph from where you can see the elephants and other animals in Zoo for free etc
-listen to music and chat with locals to a good draft beer in Bartof Café
-a swim in Frederiksberg Svømmehal, beautifully renovated old swimming bath with a lot of wellness options
-do some shopping or go to cinema "Falkonér Bio" in Frederiksberg Center or go by the metro from there in 5 min. to Nørreport St. (Cph old latin quarter) or Christianshavn St. with the freetown Christiania (no danger there! and the canals build by Chr. IV.
-cross the big road and arrive at colourful and lively Nørrebro town in 10 min
Please take care of the place and as if it was your own home:-) , and I don't apply any cleaning fee. And be especially careful with the floors which everybody tells me are SO nice and add a lot of atmosphere to the flat. Take your shoes off and take care not to spill beverages thank you.
I don't smoke but if needed you are welcome to smoke "out of the window". Leave it like you found it (ok, I'll clean the sheets & towels & take care of garbage and the dishwasher:-)).
Please do not party or play loud music due to the neighbours.
You may of course use coffe/tea and the spices in the kitchen/fridge for cooking.
I regret that animals in the flat are not allowed due to general house rules.
Ask for the house manual for more detailed info.
Nice and clean apartment in a quite neighborhood. Supermarket and grocery stores are in close range. Everything was as per description. Jørgen was always helpful and responded immediately to emails. He's really experienced with having guests and the flat was prepared well for our stay.
Jorgen's flat is great. The area is also really nice; Not mentioning the fact that we could use Jorgen's bikes, which made Copenhagen experience even better..
Good place to stay. Jorgen was traveling at the time but his daughter, Line, was an excellent resource. We couldn't figure out how to lower the bike seat and she kindly came over in the morning to help us out. The apartment looks pretty much like in the pictures & the bathroom really is as small as the other reviewers say. Bring shower sandals because the shower has no separating curtain/bathtub/etc - the floor gets wet and you might need to brush your teeth or use the toilet afterwards.
Jorgen's flat was a perfect base for a city escape! The flat is exactly as described; in a quiet area of Copenhagen that is just a short bike ride from the city centre. And being able to use the bikes was fantastic! Line was helpful; providing real-time directions from the airport and met me at the apartment. A great stay!
Jørgen's apartment was a lovely place to stay in Copenhagen. We found it very easy to catch buses from either end of the street. This was the first time we had used Airbnb and we didn't really know what to expect.
Staying at Jørgen's was like staying at a friend's place. It is exactly like it is in the photos.
Both Jørgen and his daughter Line were very helpful, giving us great directions on how to get to the apartment from the station and the best way to get to the airport.
The bathroom is quite small. But the rest of the apartment makes up for that.
There are a fair few flights of stairs, so I suggest you have light luggage with you. We had very heavy suitcases and it took us a while to get up the stairs with them.
Overall a nice apartment in Copenhagen and we enjoyed our stay.
Thank you Jørgen and Line for your hospitality.
We really had a great time in Copenhagen. Thanks to the many advices of Jørgens daughter we explored the city with the two bikes of the apartment. Furthermore the apartment was really clean and in a good neighbourhood. The shower was a bit strange at first but you get used to. Thanks again for letting us stay there and maybe we see you in Berlin someday. Greetings Matti and Pia!
We had a great time in jorgen's brilliant flat. Perfectly located in a nice area, the apartment was clean, tidy and extremely comfortable. Line was a great help throughout our stay, recommending us places to go and helping out when the bikes got a flat tyre (being able to use the bikes made the stay much easier - thanks!). A great apartment, would recommend.

About the Host, Jørgen
I'm born in Copenhagen and now teach science to young adults at a school in the latin quarter. I enjoy listening to music, watch movies and reading in my couch and use the city's culture and many specials along with colleagues, friends and my daughter Line. In my kitchen I fancy cooking good Danish and sometimes ethnic food for guests. As a member of the "Most travelled Peoples Guild" in DK I have met or lived with people in different continents (I speak English and can make myself understood in Spanish). At the same time I love outdoor activities in the mountains, biking and in my kayak (I used to climb and do crosscountry ski).
As a host, I am keen to get my guests feel comfortable here & in town. I'd like to help with local tips on good places and you are welcome to use my bike(s) - I use them every day for all my transport and it´s a wonderful and safe city for cycling!
My motto: Smile at the world and the world will smile to you:-)
