Meet the Locals #2: Cathrine Østerberg

Ice Cream Scientist and Flavor Artist

One of the things that I love about living in the city is that there is so much available right out your doorstep. Copenhagen affords a social support system that allows small niche ideas and businesses a possibility to survive and in fact, thrive. Now ICE CREAM may not be a niche market per se – but Copenhagen local, Cathrine Østerberg, has scooped one out within this very popular and tasty market.

Danes like ice cream. They make damn fine ice cream. It’s true. And there are many purveyors to choose from. But Østerberg Ice Cream on Rosenvængets Allé is unique. As Cathrine explains,

“it is Danish exotic ice cream.”

Copenhagen Denmark Snow

Copenhagen in the Snow

Winter in Denmark can feel long, dark and damp. When the little white lights of a perfect Dansk Jul are boxed up and put away ‘til next… October, the limited daylight of January and into February here can be challenging. But if you are lucky and like manna from heaven, the city becomes blanketed in fluffy white flaked goodness – watch out – Copenhagen’s charm shifts into overdrive. Snow. Snow. Snow! Sne in Danish.

The cutest little street in Copenhagen

And the award goes to… Olufsvej!

I fell in love on a wrong turn back in August last year. I was exploring on a recce visit while my husband was working in Aarhus. I had no idea at the time that this quiet little full of color and charm street would be in my very own neighborhood. Oh to bike home to one of those brightly painted little row houses on a coming grey day. In summer they are a bloom with tall and brilliant hollyhocks and roses and lavender. (One of the Top 10 reasons I love summer in Copenhagen!)
