Grab a hot dog to go

If you're on the go, then have a quick break at one of the many hot dog stands that are scattered around the country. This is considered the original Danish street food and beloved by the locals.

Pack a picnic

If you want to save on your food budget, we recommend you buy your food and drinks in local shops or supermarkets. And if the weather permits, you could go for a picnic in green surroundings. Several attractions even offer designated picnic areas, often covered, where you can enjoy your food.
