Top 50 Best Student Cafes & Bars in Denmark

Top 50 Best Student Cafes & Bars in Denmark

Did you ever have this feeling that after a few days of studying for your exams you simply couldn’t sit down in your room anymore? Sometimes you just need to change the environment. There are plenty of student cafes in Denmark where you can bring your books and laptop and feel relaxed even before a really stressful and important exam. We found the best places where you can study with the nicest cup of coffee. Also, we list the best bars and clubs where you can party and celebrate passing your exams!

When you have an early morning class

It is a fact that almost every student needs a cup of coffee to wake up before the lectures start. But did you know that your body naturally produces a hormone called cortisol that helps you feel alert and awake? So, if you have a habit of drinking coffee when you first wake up, you may want to wait a bit longer so that your caffeine isn’t wasted during a time when cortisol is at its highest. The best timing to have your first cup of coffee is after 1,5 hour of being awake.

Cheapest coffee on campus can be found in Café Nexus and Studenterhuset Aalborg. Visiting these places is a convenient way to kill an hour between classes or dash in and out for a drink. Coffee is actually very healthy. The studies show that coffee drinkers have lower risk of becoming depressed. Do you want to live longer and happier? Then go on and get a cup of delicious coffee!

Productive break and lunch

You have a break and decided to grab a snack? We all know that eating right can help you maintain a healthy weight and avoid certain health problems. Cut back on sugar and grab some yogurt instead of a muffin. Student cafes normally provide a wide range of snacks for lunch for a student-friendly price. There you can comfortably seat and discuss the group project with your peers.

The coziest places of our choice to study during the break are Paludan Bøg & Cafe in Copenhagen, LYNfabrikken’s coffee shop in Aarhus and Cafe Ubåden in Kolding. Are you vegetarian and always struggle to find a nice place? Then Café N is a place for you to join other like-minded!

Every place we chose to be the best study cafe has free WIFI and plugs for your laptop.

Study hard, party harder

Most of the students take their studying process seriously, spend a lot of time in the libraries and campuses. We understand that you might have put your degree before clubbing (seriously, people do that?) but everyone needs an amazing night out once in a while. We’ve rounded up the best clubs and bars in the country for a nice after-exam stress relieve or a casual beer night with your friends.
