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 Kongens Nytorv 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 some of Denmark’s best-known department stores such as Magasin du Nord and Illum. Continuing further down Strøget towards Kongens Nytorv, you may also encounter exclusive fashion brands like Louis Vuitton, Gucci, Bottega Veneta and Mulberry.
