Shopping in Copenhagen

Copenhagen is the home of world-famous Danish design brands. It's a great place to pick up unique design products, Scandinavian and international fashion and that extra special gift.

Treat yourself: shop in Copenhagen 

Shopping in Copenhagen is a treat in itself. The city centre is a cosy knot of small streets with one-of-a-kind boutiques, well-known names and classy department stores. No need to traipse over a large distance looking for interesting shops. Copenhagen’s commercial heart is concentrated in the beautiful old town centre and in the buzzing city districts of Vesterbro, Østerbro, Nørrebro and Frederiksberg. So grab your wallet and make your way to Scandinavia’s best shopping city.

Strøget: Denmark's fashion high street

Many shopping trips start here on the world’s longest pedestrian shopping street. Strøget pulses through the heart of the city centre, from Nørreport Station all the way to the City Hall Square (Rådhuspladsen). It's filled with some of Copenhagen’s most historic buildings and attractions as well as exciting shops. 

At the City Hall end you’ll find young fashion brands. The stretch around the atmospheric Amagertorv, with its fountain and square, is a great place to stop for a picture and a quick drink in an outdoor café before heading into one of Denmark’s best-known flagship and department stores. Exclusive fashion brands tend to nestle down near the Kongens Nytorv end.

Torvehallerne: Danish and international delicatessen

Close to Nørreport Station, right next to the heart of Copenhagen, is the brand new indoor market area known as Torvehallerne. These two glass buildings buzz every day of the week, except Monday, with vendors and hungry shoppers. 

This is the place to head for a bite on the go; for tapas, smørrebrød, sandwiches and an excellent selection of tea, coffee and smoothie stands. It’s also a great place to swing by and pick up delicatessen, fresh fish, meat and produce for dinner. In the summer, take your bite outside and enjoy the continental atmosphere of the market’s outdoor seating area.
