Address: Hedegaardsvej 73 – on Amager, next to Femøren metro station, which is 12 minutes away with the metro from Nørreport. Follow the metro-wall north 100 meters, enter through the gate “Haveforeningen Engdraget” and find house 73 (call 2711 2111 if you get lost). The venue is a Danish “kolonihavehus”.
