Copenhagen gay guide

Vilkommen to the city of Hygge (cosiness) and laid back attitude. Copenhagen is often labelled as an expensive city – and yes, prices in bars & restaurants are a bit higher, but so is the standard of what & how it is served. Danes show attention to detail & give service with a smile.

In May 2014, Copenhagen will host the Eurovision Song Contest.

Gay life is well integrated into Danish society and being gay is a non-issue. That's probably why you won’t find typical gay streets or areas in Copenhagen. Although the gay scene may look limited, Copenhagen gay life is very alive and compact and you’ll find well dressed and trendy gays all over the place.The Danes love to meet up and be cosy so going out starts early evenings in cafe’s. If you wonder if the spot is popular, just count the number of gay guys smoking on the doorstep (smoking inside is forbidden)Nighttours features a complete guide to Copenhagen gay nightlife. Nighttours list the most popular gay parties, bars, clubs and saunas in this capital of Denmark. Make sure you take a look at out interactive gay map of Copenhagen.
