Copenhagen on fire: Guide to Sankt Hans 2021
The city is big and the possibilities are endless. So where do go with your loved ones in hand when the fire is lit? Read our guide to Sankt Hans in Copenhagen below.
On June 23, it’s Sankt Hans once again, and this year the thought of standing in the smell of bonfires, singing unknown bonfire songs with a plastic mug in hand doesn’t seem that bad at all. It’s the night of all the things we have missed. Laugh, sing and put your arms around the shoulders of friends. And for that, you’ll need to know where to eat a good bite too. Read our guide for Sankt Hans in Copenhagen below:
In Tivoli, Sankt Hans will be celebrated until late in the evening. The program is filled with activities for children and adults, and it ranges widely with several forms of dance and music. Many of the park restaurateurs have prepared a special Sankt Hans menu, including Gemyse, who ‘snobrød’ in the beautiful garden, and Påfuglen (The Peacock in English), who has white asparagus, hand-peeled shrimps and mousseline sauce as part of the menu. The fire will be lit 21. 30 to the sound of Drengekoret.

Nordhavn is in the Sankt Hans-game as well. At Göteborg Plads there are kiddo activities planned too, food stalls will be set up and there will be community singing as the night falls. For takeaway pick up pizzas from Corsa Pizza, sushi from Letz Sushi, tacos from Sanchez, or pita from Garbanzo, which all are placed just around the corner from the square.
The event is free.
The midsummer party at Banegaarden will take you to the woods. From 15.00-17.00, you can drop by for a fermentation class in collaboration with Aarstiderne. Just bring your own greens! Later on
Fiskerikajen has a real summer plate ready, with fresh net-caught mackerel and crispy salad.
The evening ends with fun around the bonfire under the green treetops in Vildhave Syd. All the food stalls will be open all day and the bonfire tunes are also taken care of. Maupa serves pizza, PMY makes tacos and ceviche, Havblik serves goodies from the sea, and drinks can be bought in the café.
