Københavnstrup

With its fifty-odd stalls, Københavnstrup offers second hand and vintage items but also material for your own upcycling projects

Copenhagen is a must-see for lovers of European architecture and inventive design. It is also home to an incredible number of markets dedicated to all and sundry, from food to arts and crafts.

If after visiting Copenhagen’s favourite treasure hunt venues for antiques and collectibles like Thorvaldsens Plads, Ravnsborggade or Loppemarket i Remisen, you’re not yet done, then you might want to head to Københavnstrup flea market.

Located a few miles north from Copenhagen’s city center (it takes approximately 15 minutes to reach it in train from Copenhagen Central station), Københavnstrup is a tiny flea market located right next to Emdrup station, in a lovely residential area surrounded by old maple trees.

Every Sunday from April to October, groups of flea market enthusiasts flock to Emdrup to attend Københavnstrup flea market. “Københavnstrup” is originally a nickname which has been used for decades, if not centuries, by people from the countryside to call the city of Copenhagen.  It means basically “small-town-Copenhagen” and could be translated to “Copenhagenville” or “Copenhagendorf”.

With its five wooden shacks that used to be garages and its fifty-odd stalls filled with used items, antiques and clothes, Københavnstrup offers second-hand and upcycled items, but also material for your own upcycling projects, no matter how (un)experienced you are. No wonder why both locals and foreigners come there to find that special flea market treasure!

The vendors selling at Københavnstrup, are primarily people selling their private belongings which can be everything from furniture and lamps to clothes and jewelry – and everything in between. But the flea market also hosts a few professional vendors selling vintage items.

Københavnstrup also features 3 or 4 foodtrucks selling all kinds of food, as well as an outdoor café where the furniture is all created from used materials such as pallets, an old ladder, surfboards etc. – and even a swing made out of an old tire.

Apart from being a classic flea market, Københavnstrup is also creating awareness on recycling and environmental issue. Mainly through their facebook page but also by inviting upcyclers and other environmentalists to create small workshops at the market place.

Københavnstrup is located 500 meters north of Emdrup station. To get there take the A-train towards Farum. It takes approximately 15 minutes from Copenhagen Central station. When you get to Emdrup station keep walking in the same direction as the train (north) and signs will guide you the last 500 meters.

"Reserving flights 8 to 9 months in advance helps me manage my airfare expenses. Even in the best of times, many of the markets I follow in France don't publish their plans that far in advance. Fleamapket provides the newest information, well before I can find it online."
