Few years back the refurbished Østbanehallen and made it more exclusive. It resembles a kind of a food hall with a few bars and restaurants. It is definitely better than it used to be, but at the end of the day... this is a part...More

It's a nice place to walk through, lots of places to get food. The prices are a bit high if you actually want to eat.

If you want to eat fast before you have to catch a train I think this is a place for you. You can choose between Italian, burgers and sushis etc.
