Make friends and enjoy fine dining as you explore beautiful Copenhagen | The Sun
AS everyone at the table lets out an exuberant “Skål”, I tuck into the first of five courses.
I’m at an evening of “social dining” at Gro Spiseri, Denmark’s first rooftop farm, with sunset views – and 24 strangers.
A fairy-lit greenhouse with wood-burner keeps things cosy as we feast on mushrooms on toast, cured halibut and birch tree ice cream.
Host Rhea explains any kitchen waste from tonight will be scoffed by the farm’s chickens – and their waste will fertilise the veggies, many of which are donated to local families.
It’s an eco dream! Five courses cost £65 (Grospiseri.dk).
Home for the weekend is the Ibis Styles Copenhagen Ørestad, which opened this year and is a cool, sociable place to stay, with bright banquettes and graffiti art.

Even better, doubles – with views over Amager Fælled woodland – cost from just £115 per night (All.accor.com).
The next morning, I fuel up on cinnamon buns and salt muffins from the breakfast buffet, washed down with home-made ginger shots, before the Metro stop outside whizzes me into town in under 15 minutes.
Sail of the century
You’re never far from water here, so exploring by boat is a no-brainer.
With Green Kayaks, you can borrow one in exchange for collecting litter as you go (Greenkayak.org).
