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.

Copenhagen Street Food

Taste an organic beer from Danish micro-breweries at “Stormly” or – for the hungry ones – enjoy a steak marinated in cider for 24 hours at the Berlin-siblings’ Comptoir du Cidre. Here your group can visit the 25 food trucks, stalls and containers for lunch, or spend an afternoon or evening with the local Copenhageners in an international atmosphere.

Copenhagen Street Food is located on Papirøen, next to charming Christianshavn and the old hippie-village Christiania. Just opposite is the Royal Theatre, and across the canal, you see the Opera; this venue offers one of the best views of the harbour. The venue is suitable for groups of all sizes; if you are seeking a casual, cosy place right at the centre of the city, Copenhagen Street Food is the place to go.

It is a great place for groups to sit back and relax while enjoying the view of the harbour with a cold, organic juice and a platter of charcuterie, while others might prefer having a seat inside at one of the food stalls, tasting Il Matarello’s homemade fresh pasta, or yakatori at the Japanese street kitchen, Yatai.

The high season begins on April 20. Want to know more about Copenhagen Street Food and how we can plan your visit? Please call Ebbe Kiær on +45 33 45 45 11 or contact him by e-mail at :ek@bdp.dk.
