We live in the center of Copenhagen in an old and charming 3 story townhouse with a front and back yard. The area is known as "Kartoffelrækkerne", built in the 1880'ies and considered a gem in Copenhagen. The house has been continuously renovated to support the needs of a modern family, but with respect for the charming style of these houses, and many original details remain. The house is situated on a private road with restricted traffic, and children can play outside where a play house and a sandbox is situated. In the front yard you can enjoy the morning sun.
The ground floor contains a well equipped kitchen and dining room connected to a living room. From the dining room there is direct access to the porch behind the house, with a large gas BBQ. This is the perfect place to enjoy the afternoon sun and to barbecue in the evening. Further, the ground floor contains one of the two bathrooms.
Going up the stairs you will find the 1st floor with three rooms. They are furnished for our 3 kids, and provide easy space also for 3 adults.
The 2nd floor contains a living room, with access to the attic equipped with a king size bed. Further, the second floor contains the master bedroom with direct access to a bathroom with both shower and tub. There is wi-fi on all floors.
In the basement (not renovated though!) of the house you will find a washing machine and a dryer.
We have a cat, who can enter and leave the house on her own - no cat litter in the house. She will remain in the house during our absence, but we can arrange for neighbors to feed her.
From our house you are in walking distance of the Center of Copenhagen, with the pedestrian area "Strøget", lots of shopping including the newly opened gourmet arcades "Torvehallerne", as well as several parks, castles and the Botanical Garden.
At the end of our street you will also find the Copenhagen Lakes, perfect for a morning run or a stroll with an ice cream. The area has many cafes, restaurants and small shops, but it is both quiet and safe at night. There is easy access to Sweden as well.
To quote from the family we swapped with in 2012: "It really is in the center of the city!".

We aim for traveling in July 2013, during the school holidays. Early August is also a possibility.
We have been to the US many times, with the kids in Florida and in North Carolina! We prefer destinations with direct flight connections from Copenhagen - so New York, Washington and San Francisco areas.
We are Michael and Ulla, with Bastian (16), Julius (10), Elliot (2) and Hannibal (3 month). Michael is an independent engineer working with technological innovation. Ulla is a physician working in the pharmaceutical industry. We are a happy family that besides travelling are particularly fond of gourmet cooking! We love to go skiing in winter and travelling around the US in the summer. With children of many ages we love to mix city life with outdoors activities, such as swimming, kayaking, hiking and geocaching.
