Food and Wine – always fine.

What do you do when the weather’s only suboptimal and you haven’t got much to do for university? You go out and try a new place for lunch. Or go to a wine tasting. Why not?! ;)

So at the beginning of the week my friends & I went to a place for lunch that we’ve never been to – Grød. This place specialises in porridge, but has other dishes on its menu as well. There are three Grøds in Copenhagen and one of them is at the Torvehallerne, which is more like a market hall with over 60 stands where you can get a lot of different things – from food to body soap to plants and flowers. It is a great hall to walk around and see all the delicious things that are offered. They even let you try a few of the things for free ;) And it’s right next to Nørreport Station, so very easy to get to.

As it was already around 1pm we all decided to go for a more lunch-like option so Sarah & I had Daal (linsen lentil porridge) and Carina went for a more Risotto-like dish. Our Daal was really good, although I have to admit that I’ve had better ones before. I think the main reason for this was that they put coriander in there and that’s not my favourite spice ;)

MenuDal

What I really really liked were the salted almonds – delicious! :) Carina didn’t like her dish but it had chicken in it so I couldn’t taste it myself – so no comment from my side :D I definitely want to come back and try one of the porridges.

Version 2

I spent the rest of the week preparing for university, going on the occasional walk and cooking. Yes, I had a bit more time for cooking and eating healthier again ;) During the past few weeks I haven’t been my usual self and haven’t eaten properly (maybe also due to my laziness and not wanting to go grocery shopping…). So I got back on the healthier side! yay! I even cooked with bulgur for the first time in my life and ate A LOT of fruits :D

Wine tasting
mentioned before that CBS has a Wine Society and I already took part in one of their tastings (Wine Tasting 101). They hosted another event this week and Sarah, Carina, Cecilia and I got tickets for it. The event was held at a wine store in the city centre, at Vinoble St.Petri. Very pretty.

Winetasting_location

We got to try 8 different wines from ‘all around the globe’ (actually 8 different types of grapes from Germany, Italy, France, New Zealand and other places). So 1 champagne, 3 white wines and 4 red wines.

Personally, I almost every time prefer a red wine over a white. This time my favourite was also a red one, organic (first organic one that I’ve ever tried), coming from Germany (more precisely the Pfalz region).

the best!

The tasting was interesting, we heard (too many) interesting things about wine, how it’s made and other stuff. Fun fact of the evening: there’s an app which tells you if today is a good day for drinking wine. The day of the wine tasting was apparently one of the best days in the month for drinking wine. yay. ;) So to sum it up – we had a lot of fun, it was a great evening with the girls :)

Christmas spirit in Copenhagen. or not.

It’s that time of the year again where Christmas markets are open!! Finally! My friends and I decided to go to a few Christmas markets in town. Unfortunately, we picked the wrong time/day as it was snowing and raining at the same time and it was quite windy as well. Very wet, very cold. However, we got to try Glögg for the first time and we could have a look at various markets.

Gløgg = mulled wine

The markets were really beautiful, the Glögg was just like our Austrian mulled wine; however, they also put raisins and almonds in it. It tasted good, though :D As we were staying inside of one of the huts (I guess it was a German stand), we got to listen to very beautiful songs from Helene Fischer (note the sarcasm). They also played a lot of typical Apres Ski hits :D Not very christmassy, but it was funny. We decided to go home after one hour due to the cold and our wet clothes. I hope that the weather will be slightly better next time! :D

For a long time I’ve wanted to go to “Det Kongelige Bibliotek” (Royal Library) and I have only seen it a few times from my side of the town. One day I was trying to be productive and had a look at it. Finally. The library is located on Slotsholmen and is (with 35.1 million items) the largest library of the Nordic countries.

It turned out to be rather unproductive after all as I only managed to read a couple of pages for one of my courses :D Also, I did not really see the whole building as I only had a closer look at the Black Diamond (waterfront extension to the old building). The place is different than the usual study places that I go to in Copenhagen and I got to see a very beautiful building (which reminded me a bit of the library from my university in Vienna).


Unfortunately, the weather hasn’t really improved since (with that I mean no beautiful snow) and it’s gone back to being just cold, windy and rainy. However, some days were quite nice and I had to take advantage of it and went out for a long stroll around my neighbourhood.

Polka dots and pumpkins.

Last Wednesday, my friends and I decided to take a train to go up north to the Louisiana Museum for Modern Arts. It is located approximately 35km north of Copenhagen, right on the shore of the Øresund. With around 500,000 visitors per year it is the most visited museum of Denmark.

In the Introduction Week of our programme one of our teachers mentioned a collaboration of Yayoi Kusama and Louis Vuitton (polka dot fashion) and a magazine photo shoot of George Clooney wearing clothes customised by Kusama. In the shoot for W Magazine, George Clooney was portrayed in a polka dot Giorgio Armani suit customised by Kusama. Most recently an exhibition about Kusama had opened, many in our programme have already been to the exhibition at Louisiana and some made plans to go there soon. So we decided to go there as well.

The exhibition is called “In Infinity” and features visual art, performance, film, literature and design, which was created by Kusama in the past 60+ years. Yayoi Kusama is a very interesting person. Born in Japan in 1929, she started creating art at a very early age. She moved to New York for some time as she was frustrated with Japanese style. Kusama embraced the Hippie movement and organised a few happenings involving naked people covered in polka dots in New York City. She moved back to Japan in the 70ies and voluntarily admitted herself to a private psychiatric hospital, where she’s been staying since.

IMG_9164

Mirror room

IMG_9183

Pumpkin infinity

A polka-dot has the form of the sun, which is a symbol of the energy of the whole world and our living life, and also the form of the moon, which is calm. Round, soft, colorful, senseless and unknowing. Polka-dots become movement … Polka dots are a way to infinity.

(Kusama, 1978)

Polka dots are a trademark of her work. Entire rooms were covered in them, especially rooms with mirrors (which she calls ‘Mirror Rooms’ or ‘Infinity Rooms’). Another interesting part of the exhibition was the importance of pumpkins. According to this source, pumpkins are representatives of her alter-ego or self-portrait.

Although Modern Art is usually not the type of art that I can truly enjoy, I really liked this exhibition. For my taste there were way too many intended phallic symbols in some of her work, and a few pieces were just plain weird. However, the light installations were beautiful, the infinity/mirror rooms were amazing and the infinity nets are something that I could even imagine having at home. So if you ever have the chance to go to an exhibition of Kusama’s art – take it, I highly recommend it :)


IMG_2971

It was snowing for the first time last weekend!!! I couldn’t believe my eyes when the tiny flocks were falling down in front of my window. So beautiful :) (I am a sucker for snowflakes). However, it did not take long for it to melt away :(

‘Celebrating’ J-dag in Copenhagen.

I was finally able to move into my new apartment (though not yet into my room) so I wanted to usefully spend my time, namely at Ikea. As Carina has also just moved into her new flat we both took one day off studying and went to IKEA and got a few things. Most of the things I got were of decorative purpose – lots of candles, candle holders and cacti. Probably most importantly we also got ourselves some cake and Köttbullar/Grøntsagsboller (veggie version of them). Cheap and yummy :)

IMG_2759

You can’t go to IKEA and not eat at the restaurant.

Besides getting stuff for my new flat I also had to prepare for my next assignment which starts on 9th November. This time I only have 72 hours to write a 10-page-paper. Therefore, I had to do all the reading beforehand as I usually don’t keep up with the readings during the semester. I just don’t see why I should do that – most of the time the professor just repeats the stuff from the book and the articles during the lecture, so if I read everything beforehand, the lecture would be extremely boring sometimes. From time to time they get boring anyway, so… whatever :D All in all I spent quite a lot of time in the library again, yay!

Friday was another ‘special’ day in Denmark – J-dag. J-dag is the day on which the arrival of the Christmas brew of Tuborg is celebrated in various bars. The Danish brewery Tuborg (member of the Carlsberg group) has been brewing a special beer for Christmas for quite some time and the beer is available only for a few weeks. The company started with this tradition in 1990 and the event turned out to be quite a success. Another special thing about this event is that the beer is only available to the public after 20.59 on that day. So you can already see the Julebryg in stores all over town but you won’t be able to buy it :D The Julebryg (Jul = Christmas –> Christmas brew) has a slightly higher alcohol concentration, is malty and apparently tastes like liquorice. Since 2010, J-dag is celebrated on the first Friday of November.

So on Friday, Carina, Sarah and I wanted to bring a bit of a change into our study sessions and went to the university café/bar, where there was an event for J-dag. The whole bar was decorated accordingly (all in blue and ready for Christmas) and Christmas music (at times other music like Michael Jackson as well) was blasting out of the boxes.

We even got a bagel for free and it was sooooo delicious! On the facebook eventpage it only said ‘snacks’ were included so we were expecting nothing like that and were quite suprised :D They even had a veggie bagel and it was so delicious!

The beer was better than expected, but I would never buy it in a bar as it was just too malty for me. At least I think this was the reason why I did not like it :D And it did not taste like liquorice at all.Though, not many people were there – lucky us. We were not in the mood for a night-out and just wanted to taste the beer and have a good conversation. we had a lot of fun and they were already playing Christmas music. So I am already in a very Christmassy mood and am looking forward to going to the first Christmas markets of the season. Stay tuned, I will definitely report on them ;)

Enjoying the last week of October.

The past week was very relaxed. My boyfriend was visiting me and as I still had to finish my exam on Tesla Motors (yay) we did nothing much exciting during the first couple of days. After handing in my assignment and due to the fact that I only had two classes during the week we had a lot of free time.

IMG_5690

Hi there.

First, we went to Christiansborg Slot as I haven’t been there yet. Christiansborg Slot is a palace on the small island Slotsholmen in the centre of Copenhagen. It is the seat of the Danish parliament and also used by the Danish monarch. It was a very beautiful day, the sun was out and it was not cold at all.

IMG_5705

Then we went to an exhibition about Tolkien (mentioned here in a previous blogpost). As we were headed to the Royal Arsenal Museum, which is also on Slotsholmen, we also came across a small beautiful garden.

IMG_8728

The Tolkien’s Universe exhibition was about Tolkien and more or less based on the movies Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit. However, it was not as exciting as we’d imagined, but we had fun nevertheless and it was free admission, so yeah. And it took us a long time to figure out where the exhibition was located. :D

IMG_8830

After the museum we went to a tower where we’d have a beautiful view over Copenhagen. The tower was also located on Slotsholmen and the entrance was free. Funnily enough, we had to go through a security check just like on an airport in order to go up to the platform. The four or five people working there seemed very happy that someone showed up as there were not many people around to go up the tower.

After spending a couple of hours on Slotsholmen, we had dinner at a Burger place near Kongens Nytorv – Cocks & Cows, which was recommended to us by a friend of mine (thanks again, Linda (: ) and which was packed the last time my boyfriend was here. The place is really nice, though a bit expensive. However, it was probably the best vegetarian burger that I have ever had!

A beautiful day in CPH

As I was about to move places, my bike had to be moved as well. We took the chance and explored my new neighbourhood and found a few nice spots. One of it was the Kalvebod Bølge (Kalvebod Waves), a promenade that was opened in 2013 and its purpose is to reconnect the city with the water. It’s worth a visit!

Later on, as we were already in Christianshavn, we decided to go to the Street Food Market on Papirøen and enjoy Colombian/Thai Food and cakes.

We also spent quite some time in a Lego store…

On Saturday (the last day that my boyfriend was in town) we had lunch at the Street Food market again – there’s just too much delicious food there! Besides, it was the very first time that I tried a Korean dish and of course I’ve already forgotten the name of it. haha. We also treated ourselves to some delicious Apple Crumble Pancakes. YUM!

Another week about cars. | Exam time.

This entry will be a very short one as I do not want to bore you with library and exam stuff. I could tell you a lot about Tesla Motors and various perspectives of consumer behaviour but I’d rather not. If you are interested in reading stuff about Tesla Motors and their e-cars, you can have a look at this article… Arnold Schwarzenegger is mentioned there. Haha.


IMG_2705

So again – lots of time spent in the library.

IMG_2707

The most interesting day of my week was probably Tuesday. Carina and I got up very early in the morning so we could enjoy a free breakfast at H&M! We also got a discount of 20% on everything. Yay :)

IMG_2674

so much food!

IMG_2676

YUM!

IMG_2677

I promise I will be able to write a bit more next week as the exam will finally be over, Halloween is coming up, my boyfriend is in town again and I will be moving into a new flat. Stay tuned ;)

IMG_8719

Spending time in the library. | Exam time

This week I haven’t had any classes due to Efterårsferie – the autumn holidays in Denmark. Nonetheless, my first “exam” of one of my courses started. It is a take home assignment, where I have two weeks to write a paper of around 15 pages on the different perspectives of consumer behaviour. The case is about Tesla Motors. Yay. Cars. Funnily enough, my sister told me two days before the hand out of the assignment that she and her fiancé have just booked a Tesla car as their car for their wedding next June. At least I have a little insight in a potential consumer of one of these cars.

In the past few days l have been spending a lot of time reading the course literature in order to apply it in the assignment. So my week was relatively boring, nothing extraordinary happened.

My university building on a rainy Saturday morning

A few words about the university buildings. CBS is not a campus university so there are several buildings across Frederiksberg. The main building (which you can see above) is on Solbjerg Plads (short SP) and this is also where I have spent a lot of time in the library and where the wine tasting took place. The other building that I mostly go to is the graduate house on Nyholms Vej (NV), where I have got all my courses. The Danish classes take place in the (I believe) old building on Dalgas Have. There is another building on Porcelænshaven, but I have no idea what the purpose of this one is as I have only been to it once and haven’t seen much of it.

IMG_2650

I could also try out a few things in the kitchen as I have had so much time on my hands and all my favourite youtubers unfortunately don’t post daily videos and one cannot always watch kittens and puppies.

Exploring Copenhagen’s cultural side.

Last Sunday Sarah, Carina and I went to a flea market on Islands Brygge on Amager. This quay is so beautiful and apparently one of the most popular areas along the harbourfront in Copenhagen. The architecture there is very extraordinary – a mixture of old buildings and modern architecture, which makes the area even more interesting. It was a very typical flea market with a huge variety of offerings for young and old. We didn’t pay close attention to them because it was way more interesting how people were behaving and in what things they were interested in, so we only got coffee, wandered around and talked a lot.

The market was also very close to a very special bridge – the so-called “Circlebroen” (The Circle Bridge), which only opened in August 2015 and connects Christiansbro and Appelbys Plads. The bridge consists of five different sized circular platforms and is a pedestrian bridge. According to the internet, the bridge should represent a ship by the quay as a reference to the shipping history of Copenhagen :D

Enjoying the view

As I have mentioned in a previous blog post, CBS has various societies, including CBS Wine. This society holds several events a year where they try to teach you some important things about wine. Carina and I gave it a go and went to one of their events: Wine Tasting 101. IMG_2531

There was even an Austrian wine connoisseur at the event and his name was Rudi (couldn’t be any more stereotypical, could it?!). We could try one sparkling, three white and five red wines from France, Italy, Germany and Australia. Some of them were really good! The event was very well organised, we even had spit buckets on the table (in case you didn’t like the wine or didn’t want to drink it all so you could pour it in the spit bucket). The connoisseurs gave us an overview of how the different types are made, what impact the glass shape has on the taste and other interesting things.

IMG_2548

Probably the most interesting part of the week was Friday night. It was Kulturnatten. This is a bit like “Lange Nacht der Museen” in Austria, which means many museums are open to the public for free. However, in Copenhagen you have to get a ticket for only 90 Kroner and there are many special events on Kulturnatten, such as light installations and dance performances.

IMG_2563

Ticket for Kulturnatten

Sarah, Carina and I only had a rough plan what we wanted to do and see, so we stumbled upon a few interesting things on the way. One of it was a beer tasting in a church. Sarah still had to get her ticket and most of the 7-elevens didn’t have tickets any more so we had to go to a church in the centre where they still had some left. Funnily enough, a beer tasting also happened to be at the same place, so why not go and try one?!

IMG_8635

The beer (dark and light) was really delicious and I don’t know why but I didn’t even look at the brand so I have no idea what the beer was. Definitely not Carlsberg or Tuborg though.

We then walked around in the city so we could have a look at a few installations so we also came across a light installation (or light show?!) of “Tolkien’s Universe” at the Royal Danish Arsenal Museum. In the inner yard was this huge light installation where you could see Hobbiton of Lord of the Rings. This wasn’t just a picture, it was kind of a video, as after some time, Gandalf came with his horse carriage and shot some fireworks and so on. It was so beautifully made!

We also wanted to go to the House of Horrors, but the lady at the entrance told us that “this is only for kids” and we should go away. Ts. We then had a peak at the Glyptotek (no bags allowed inside, so we walked out again) and waited for a bus in the freezing cold for 20 minutes so we could look at babies in jars. The official name was “Museum Saxtorphianum” and it was an exhibition at the Medical Museum of the University of Copenhagen. It is the Saxtorph collection which started in the late 1700s and consists of bones, fetuses, instruments and so on. It was very interesting to look at, but very creepy and disturbing on the other hand. I did not take pictures of any fetus or bone but there were a few other parts of the exhibition that didn’t consist of a thing in a jar.

The last station of our tour was the SMK – State Museum of Copenhagen. We only looked at the International and Danish art of the last 100 years as this part was the most interesting one to us. However, we also came across a few strange pieces.

Carina and I also wanted to go to the Botanical Garden, which was right around the corner of SMK, but it was already 11:45 and everything closed at 12 so we could only have a peak inside the Garden and we went home afterwards.

All in all, we had a lot of fun, although it was a very cold night and we had to either walk long distances, wait in lines or wait for the bus for 20 minutes… :D

Street food markets seem to be popular.

In a previous blog post I mentioned that I have already had a look at a food market here in Copenhagen. As Facebook is/was flooded with Food Market events in Copenhagen, I wanted to go to another one and another one and another one and so on.

Carina and I were pretty excited to go to one in or around the meatpacking district as it sounded so delicious. To be honest, I was pretty disappointed due to the lack of vegetarian options. However, I have already come around to the fact that there’s bacon in almost every meal and my choices are therefore limited.

I paid 30 kroner for a teeny-tiny Taco, which was the only veggie option for me (well there was also veggie pasta but I’ve had too many pasta dishes lately…). It was very good though but it made me hungrier than I had been before. However, the market was very cute – with the colourful trucks and tables – very trendy and hip :D


University was pretty much the same as during the first couple of weeks. Early classes = lots of coffee & lots of time to make travelling plans. The only two really interesting things were Society Day and the beginning of my Danish class.

There was one day at CBS where all the societies and clubs were introduced which meant there was lots of free stuff to get :) I stocked up my pen supply, got a free bag, free coffee and even free blue soft ice cream, which was surprisingly good. The variety of societies that one can join is very limited compared to the University of Sheffield (where I went on exchange during my bachelor’s) but large compared to the Vienna University of Business & Economics (where I did my bachelor’s). The annoying aspect at CBS is that you have to properly apply to become a real member of the society – with CV, motivational letter and sometimes even an assessment center. On the other hand, if you only want to take part in the fun events and don’t want to look behind the curtain (which would of course look good on a CV…) you can easily take part by just showing up or buying the tickets online. I haven’t decided yet whether I really want to join a society or just go to the events that interest me the most.

So I had my first Danish class last week. Danish classes are offered for Danish students and staff for free (actually, only if you have a permanent address and are registered properly which we haven’t, but who cares) and you even get the course books without having to pay for them.

If you have a look at the linguistic classification, Danish with around 5.5 million native speakers is part of the sub-group North Germanic, which is one of the three subdivisions of the Germanic branch. There are a some similarities to German: god = gut (good) , hund = hund (dog) and agurk = Gurke (cucumber). (Those are the ones that came to my mind and that I knew before :D ).

My first Danish class was very interesting, fun and different as expected. The most surprising thing to me was that you don’t pronunciate Danish the way you write it. WHICH WILL MAKE IT SO HARD TO LEARN. Grammar is supposed to be easy though. We will see! ;D

We had to laugh a lot in our first class due to the fact that some words just sound so ridiculous (no offense to any Danish speakers!!). Jeg hedder Christina, jeg taler tysk og kommer fra Østrig ;) I’m looking forward to the next weeks but I’m not sure yet how thoroughly I will study it.


Last Friday Carina, Sarah (from the US) and I went to another street food market which is open every weekend all year round (at least I think so?!). It is located in Christianshavn on Papirøen (Paper Island). The sun was out – with a few clouds and a bit of wind though. On Papirøen you have the possibility to either sit outside and enjoy the food overlooking the waterfront or enjoy your meal indoors in the open hall.

There were many different types of food, you could find trucks with food from all around the globe. They even had a few vegetarian options as well and some dedicated solely to sweet dishes. YAY! :) Every food truck had a sample dish somewhere so you could make a decision based on the sample which made it a lot easier to choose.

IMG_8594

Vegetarian Colombian Food. YUM

IMG_8586

So many cheesecakes!

I had a delicious Paisan dish – red bean stew with mango salad, plantain chips, rice and a fried egg. Later on we indulged ourselves to coffee and a slice of cheesecake. Sarah wanted to have a pancake but everytime we had a look at the pancake food truck, the guy had a sign that he “WENT FISHING” although he was just sitting around somewhere. So no pancakes for us. Due to the wind we stayed inside and had a nice walk around Christianshavn later.

My first visitor in Copenhagen.

Right before my departure to Copenhagen my boyfriend David surprised me by telling me that he’d already booked a flight to Copenhagen so he could visit me at the beginning of September. So I already had my first visitor from home and therefore, we had a bit of sightseeing to do. Hence a very image-heavy post ;)

Most of the days were very April-like with many changes in the weather (from beautiful sunshine to cold, windy & rainy and back to sunshine again!). However, we managed to see many sights and made some (quirky) pictures. I also asked a friend of mine if she could recommend a few nice places where we could go and have dinner/lunch/whatever. So thanks Linda for recommending so many nice places!! :)

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

We walked around in Christianshavn, paid a visit to Christiania, walked around in Indre by (Copenhagen Center) saw the little mermaid, and had dinner in Nyhavn. I’ve never had Smørrebrød before and was therefore very excited to try one! It was probably not the cheapest place (10 euros for a 0.4l beer!!). Although it looked very small (just one tiny slice of brad) it was so delicious!!

The next day we decided to stay in and make delicious porridge for breakfast/lunch. It was very rainy so what else should we have done?! :D I also had a brief phone call with my Mum as it was her birthday. However, I think she didn’t realise that I don’t have to pay for calling her so she cut me off quite quickly :D Or she was just busy :D Later in the afternoon the sun came out again so David and I went straight to a food market in the meatpacking district. However, it started raining again so we went to a Café instead :)

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

My friend gave us the recommendation to go to a very good burger place in town (Cocks and Cows) but the only free tables would have been in the garden. Due to the rainy day and we’ve been walking around for quite a while, we didn’t want to do this and went to another (student friendly) place that she recommended. It was right in the city centre opposite the University of Copenhagen. There we had very cheap and delicious dinner (Burger + Vegetarian Lasagna = YUM!). Afterwards, we went straight home as I was freezing and instead of doing something exciting, we stayed in bed and watched a couple of Friends episodes and we even played Achtung die Kurve (Curve Fever)! I won. Every single time.


On Sunday we had home-made Pizza for lunch and spent the rest of the day with sightseeing because it was very sunny and we wanted to get out of the apartment and enjoy a casual stroll through the city. We also decided to go up the Rundetaarn, which is a round tower in the city centre. We had such a great view on top of the tower, but it was so windy that it was hard to take a normal picture without having all of my hair or my scarf in my face :D

After the tower we walked around for a bit and stayed a while in Kongens Have, a beautiful garden with the Rosenborg Slot (Rosenborg Castle). The castle was built in 1606 by Christian IV. so he could have a country summerhouse. Afterwards, we had tea and hot chocolate in a Laundromat Café, where you can have drinks & eat food while doing your laundry at the same time :D

All in all we had a few great days together and I’m glad that David liked the city so he’ll come again (although he’s pretty much seen everything… :D )
