With over 350 cultural events each year, Kulturhuset Islands Brygge (K-I-B) definitely has something for everyone to enjoy: the young, old, and everyone in between. Open every day of the week, and hosted across two large spaces, three meeting rooms, and its own café, Kulturhuset Islands Brygge is home to many different cultural events including movies, theatre, music, comedy and even its own flea market!

The flea market at Islands Brygge, locally known as Loppemarked på Bryggen, stretches along the quay and around the K-I-B. Over the past 15 years it has grown into one of Copenhagen’s largest and coziest outdoor flea markets with up to 150 stalls. Vintage and antique lovers can expect to find on this flea market, a variety of beautiful retro objects that Denmark is renowned for: Danish Mid-Century furniture, vinyls, pictures and paintings, glass, Royal Copenhagen porcelain, ceramics, kitchen appliances like Danish Royal Raadvad bread slicers, mirrors, lighting fixtures, books, and vintage toys. New and old clothes, as well as shoes and accessories can also be found on the premise.

The flea market at Islands Brygge is beautifully situated along Copenhagen’s harbor and around the Culture House of Islands Brygge (K-I-B). Copenhageners love to visit this area to stroll along the water, enjoy an ice cream or a cup of coffee in a green and pleasant setting, especially during the summer months. Islands Brygge is like a small village in Copenhagen and yet very close to the city centre. The metro and several buses stop close by, making this part of Copenhagen very easy to reach from the city center.

As far as restaurants are concerned, lovers of local specialties will not be left out. Islands Brygge has a pretty wide range of restaurants. And typical Danish sausage cart, as well as ice cream van can be found during the summer months directly on the harbor. In the older district around the flea market, there are cafes and other interesting shops. In the eastern part of this neighborhood, visitors will discover Amager Strandpark, a beach area that has become increasingly popular. Here is another reason to spend your Sunday strolling through  Loppemarked på Bryggen!

For those interested in the origin of Islands Brygge, it was created by repeated fillings from the 1880s of the shallow area between Amager and Zealand. The first fill closest to Langebro was used by the Armed Forces and others were used for housing and the fill south of Sturlasgade for industry. In the first half of the 20th century, the area near the harbor and the southern part of the city area was characterized by a lot of industry. In the second half of the century, these industries were largely closed down, and towards the end of the century there were many empty buildings.

After the year 2000, there has been extensive new construction on the old industrial and defense areas, so that the district now stands out with a mixture of many older homes and various shops to the north and new homes and office buildings in the center and to the south in Havnestaden and Islands Brygge Syd. The Harbor Park has been established along the harbor and is a very popular recreational area. It is a 5-minute walk from Rådhuspladsen and a 10-minute walk from Nyhavn.

"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."
