Street Food markets: A favourite among locals
Do you want to eat somewhere surrounded by locals while having a large variety of cuisines to choose from? Then we recommend refuelling at a street food market. You'll find street food markets in Denmark's big cities, such as Reffen Street Food in Copenhagen, Aarhus Street Food by the bus station in Aarhus, Storms Pakhus in Odense, and The Lighthouse Street Food in Aalborg.

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.
