Hviids Vinstue Copenhagen Reviews
A part of the history of Copenhagen Feb 09, 2012
Hviids Vinstue in the center of Copenhagen is almost an institution; the place opened almost 300 years ago and has therefore been a witness to the history of Copenhagen with its to large fires in 1728 and 1795. It was also around in the wars against England in 1801 and 1807; things that people in Copenhagen hardly remember or care about if they are not minded for the history of our capital.
I have been here numerous of times and it is a well-known meting point if you are walking in the center of the city. It is especially popular around Christmastime for its gløgg, hot wine with snaps; otherwise it is a place where you enter if you want to get away from the hassle of the inner city. They sell more than 6000 liter of their gløgg every Christmas and the first glass is always served at the 11th November at 11am. (e.g. 11.11.11 – not hard to remember)
Inside it is always pretty dark with dark wooded panels everywhere, but also somewhat cozy, if you like these dark hideaways. It is not a place where you meet many youngsters but tourists from especially Sweden and Norway like this place.
They serve lunch here as well but it is not more than fair if you compare with the real lunch places nearby - it is more of a relaxing pub
