Pedestrian Malls/Streets

Strøget - Europe's longest pedestrian mall:

The Strøget pronounced [stroyet], is the main pedestrian mall in the city, connecting Town Hall Square with Kongens Nytorv.

Strolling all the way down Strøget, you will notice how the street gradually changes its character.

From the fastfood outlets and cheap clothing stores at the Town Hall end of the street to the high-profile brand name stores near the Kongens Nytorv.

On your way down Strøget, you will pass through a number of squares, one of which is Amagertorv. From there you can chose to take the Købmagergade Street, another major pedestrian mall.


Købmagergade is packed with clothing stores, shoeshops, bookshops, music stores, hotdog stands, you name it!

The Købermagergade pedestrian mall runs between Strøget and the Nørreport Metro and S-train station.

About halfway you will find one of the oldest landmarks in the city: the Round Tower (Rundetårn), from where you get stunning views of the streets and alleys of the old inner city.


Fiolstræde, another beautiful pedestrian mall running parallel to Købmagergade, is closely associated with books.

Here you will find a huge number of second-hand and antiquarian bookshops, popular book cafés, and even a section of the University Library, a red-brick edifice with an interior of cathedral dimensions.


The Strædet pedestrian mall is another great option. From Amagertorv, this narrow street runs parallel to Strøget. There are no megastores here, but a great variety of cafés and small shops selling handicraft items, designer clothes, shoes, and antiques.
