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.

Christmas shopping in Copenhagen

If you are in Copenhagen around Christmas time, where the opportunities for coming across Danish world-renowned design brands are many, what is more obvious than picking up some of your Christmas presents for your loved ones at home. So go out and explore the Christmas decorated shopping streets of Copenhagen and surprise a family member or friend with a unique piece of Danish design under the Christmas tree.
