"Centralværkstedet" is a railway workshop founded in 1862, it was permanently closed in 2009. Even though the buildings have left their workshop days behind them, the aesthetically pleasing raw look of Centralværkstedet draws positive attention. It is a building with lots of character and "big city"-charm like no other. A lot of the original details have been kept, like the doors and floors, which adds to the characteristics of the place and makes it great for dinners and parties. 

Restaurant "Smedien" is made up of the perfect balance between intimate coziness and the raw design Centralværkstedet is known for. At Smedien you will find direct acces to a nice little yard perfect for a little air and chit chat between the delicious courses.
