MORE ABOUT COPENHAGEN

Danish cuisine
Danish cuisine

Smørrebrød and Aebleflæsk are most traditional Danish foods. While there are many meat dishes, fried pork with parsley sauce and potatoes is the most preferred and popular among tourists.

For the uninitiated the experience is akin to Spanish pinchos.
Copenhagen is also ground zero for the new Nordic cuisine, where geniuses work wonders with molecular processes and emphasise the quality of regional ingredients.

Shopping in Copenhagen
Shopping in Copenhagen

There are a number of shopping districts around Copenhagen, Denmark, where you can find high-end fashion houses, department stores, shopping malls, as well as bargains from flea markets.

It’s among the largest pedestrian malls in the world and even if the prices aren’t for the faint-hearted. If you want to find some independent shops then follow Strøget into the Old City and then try one of the narrow side streets.

Explore Nyhavn
Explore Nyhavn

New Harbour in English, this historic waterfront area is next to a 17th-century canal where old wooden ships are still moored.

On both sides of the canal are tall painted houses dating to the 1600s and 1700s, the ground floors of which house bars, restaurants and cafes with outdoor seating.It’s hard to believe it now, but for most of its existence this was a seedy part of town.Now it’s one of the best places to linger of a coffee or beer in summer.

 It’s a big literary landmark where the house numbers 18, 20 and 67 (marked with a plaque) were home to the author Hans Christian Andersen at different times.

Night out

A fine starting point for a night out in Copenhagen is on one of the many side streets that branch off Stroget. Here you can drink with locals and prices are a little lower than the Nyhavn.

On weekends this can be your launch pad for a fun night out in a city where clubs are cool and unpretentious, and live music is a way of life. Younger visitors can party all night at clubs in Nørrebro  that stay open ’til five in the morning and represent all sorts of scenes. 

There’s also a guided tour to enjoy the nightlife: Copenhagen Pub Crawl (Carlsberg, Pubs, Nightclubs, & More).
