Our apartment has tons of books, and lots of stuff for kids. It is an old apartment, neatly decorated and comfortable, on the 3rd floor of a quiet and friendly apartment building. We have a dishwasher, washing machine, clothes dryer. There is a communal courtyard which can be used for barbecuing and eating out in during the summer. It also has a sandy area for very young children, and plum trees.
We live in the heart of Østerbro. Within a 4 block radius we have 3 major food outlets, fast food places, wonderful cafes, gourmet food shops, designer clothing shops, an indoor public pool, a major public park with a lake, the botanic gardens, public buses and the local train station. You can take a 20 minute walk downtown to the heart of Copenhagen, or go in the other direction to visit the little mermaid at the harbour. Short trips on local buses can land you at the zoo, the aquarium, etc. In July the Copenhagen Jazz Festival takes place, and there is music everywhere, and quite a bit is free.
Our neighborhood can be seen here on the google map. Nearby are many parks, lakes, and major downtown attractions kastellet (little mermaid), botanisk haven (botanic gardens), the Royal family's dwellings, etc.
We are two adults, (late 40s), American + Danish, editor/teacher, IT software designer, two sons (10 + 8). Our children love school, sports, computer games, and playing in the school orchestra.
