The 500 Hidden Secrets of Copenhagen reveals these good-to-know addresses and facts and many more.  Austin Sailsbury went looking for the most wonderful places to be in the Danish capital, like a smørrebrød spot in the Torvehallerne food market that serves fresh, creative open-face sandwiches made right in front of you, a tiny arched tunnel which, every three to five weeks, is reclaimed by an artist who covers the walls with his or her own vision, or an urban development where housing units were built atop a sloping concrete parking structure, thus allowing for an artificial mountainside below and cascading, terrraced apartments high above street level.

This is a book for visitors who want to avoid the usual tourist spots and for residents who are keen to track down the city's best-kept secrets. 500 addresses and facts in total, presented in original lists of 5. Maps & index included.
