Dine fancy, play volleyball, or jump straight in the water at Halvandet

A unique venue where it is possible to dine fancy, play volleyball, or jump straight in the water – whatever you prefer. Relax and enjoy a cocktail in the cabana as you watch the waves beat across the sea with wonderful Copenhagen as your primary view.

Halvandet entails all the raw and industrial details as the rest of the locations on Refshaleøen. However, Halvandet has accomplished to make their industrial halls and the outdoor area exclusive and elegant at the same time. This is a venue where it is just as appropriate to wear your bikini as it is to wear your most extravagant evening gown.

In the summertime, Halvandet is open for the public where it turns into a beach club with sunbeds, beach chairs, and the possibility of bathing in the ocean. As you enjoy a day at Halvandet music will be playing, the drinks will be cold and the food delicious. You probably won’t even believe you are still in Copenhagen when you see this place. Its atmosphere more resembles somewhere in the south; so combined with its distinctive industrial look – it truly is a place of its own.

The location is called “The Cable Halls” as they were used to produce cables once upon a time for the B&W shipyard. Halvandet consists of one very large hall and one smaller hall, which can be used for events.

Do you dare to do this?

At Urban Ranger Camp you use the same elevator, stair- and walkway during the activities, which existed during the shipyard’s existence. You are literally walking in the same steps as the B&W workers.

You can definitely expect to be challenged at Urban Ranger Camp. They have the world’s largest indoor high roping field. If you choose the high roping experience you will be doing rope activities in a height of 50 meters. The Royal Danish Theatres backdrop workshop uses the floor space for its many sets, making it even more exiting to be walking around above. We promise you that you will be able to feel your heart almost pounding out of your chest with excitement.

Otherwise you can choose team challenge activities, which are great to use for teambuilding or employee development. These activities will definitely also get your adrenaline running.

It is possible (when your pulse has slowed a bit down again – of course) to combine these activities with a corporate meeting or a small conference on location.

Urban Ranger Camp and Copenhagen Paintball share the location S1 and S2 at Refshaleøen. The biggest of the halls is S2 and has the impressing measurements of 150 meters long, 50 meters wide and 75 meters tall. Before B&W closed this large space was used to build sections for the gigantic B&W ships. Before the ships could sail off into Øresund they were assembled with these parts in the nearby dock.

Charming Danish Christmas Markets

Walking around the many old streets and squares in Denmark at Christmas time, you might stumble upon a Christmas market with everything from handmade Christmas decorations to”Gløgg”, hot chocolate and  “æbleskiver” with jam and icing sugar.

Found in larger towns as well as many little villages, the most popular markets are in Copenhagen, Aarhus, Odense and Aalborg. A short visit can be the perfect little break between work and dinner; experience Danish culture up close and have a chat next to one of the market’s huts while enjoying a warm cup of Gløgg. Don’t forget your warm coat and gloves, although many markets offer heating lamps to keep you warm.

Have you already seen the typical tourist attractions and are looking for something else? If you’re seeking an afternoon away from the crowded touristy areas, the trendy and edgy Nørrebro neighbourhood around Jægersborggade might be just right for your group.

Helle Rosborg from BDP Cruise is particularly fond of the area because:

“It’s so cool – small designer shops and coffee shops, restaurants and a few little factories making all kinds of sweets. It’s so nice there. The streets Elmegade and Birkegade close by are also great for shopping clothes, shoes and furniture.”

The neighbourhood aims to inspire and surprise with its 40 speciality shops. BDP can plan a visit for your group at Karamelleriet to experience the old-fashioned production of handmade caramels, or, for a more hands-on experience, we will organize a visit to RO Chokolade, where your group can make their own traditional, Danish ‘Flødeboller’ at the chocolate factory. We will have to warn you, though; RO Chokolade’s lime ganache and apple-cinnamon marzipan are addictive.

To arrange your group’s visit to Jægersborggade and the surrounding area, please call Ebbe Kiær on +45 33 45 45 11 or contact him by e-mail at: ek@bdp.dk.
