gourmet smørrebrød

Get your hands dirty, get your apron on, and start creating your very own gourmet smørrebrød

When visiting Copenhagen you must try the famous Danish smørrebrød. Even better – what about making them yourself in new Nordic surroundings at Refshaleøen?

Restaurant Aamanns’ is famous for its modern interpretation of “smørrebrød” in Copenhagen. Their amazing and industrial venue at Refshaleøen offers a workshop on how to create tasty smørrebrød for groups. You can easily combine this with a conference or corporate gathering at the same location.

When Aamanns isn’t busy hosting workshops, they run a cafeteria where businesses located on Refshaleøen come to eat delicious smørrebrød for lunch. The open space creates an undeniable community spirit between the workplaces. People gather around the long wooden tables to enjoy smørrebrød – just like in the old days. As soon as everyone is gathered at Aamanns for lunch you hear the glasses clinking, the cutlery rattling, and the summing of conversation and laughter fills the room.

The building, which today holds Aamanns, is called “The Main Warehouse”, which was once used as the old B&W shipyard’s depot. With its rustic and raw atmosphere, it is easy to picture the old working environment. The well-preserved space makes this venue particularly special for groups to visit.
