Capital of Denmark


  • About

    In Copenhagen you always feel welcome because the Danes are very hospitable. Here is something for all ages, fun, shopping for all tastes and price levels, clubs, bars with all types of music and a cultural offering to suit everyone.
    Strøget is the main street for tourists. When you arrive, it can be nice to stroll around here and look at everything that is offered to the tourists by all street vendors and musicians, but you have to be aware that everything is more expensive than on the side streets. If you have been here a few times you are happy to look for other streets. It is enough to walk a block on the side of Strøget to find that e.g. a glass of beer can be 15 dkk cheaper. Nyhavn is a very popular pub and restaurant district. It's nice to walk around here or sit and have a beer at one of the restaurants.
    When you get tired of Ströget and Nyhavn we recommend Nørrebro, which is a little west of Nørreport station. Many small cozy shops, antique shops, small restaurants and pubs with lower prices than in the center. Especially recommend a visit to Nørrebro Brewery for those who love beer (not cheap but good). Brewery with restaurant is located on Ryesgade.
