Where to shop in Copenhagen

In Copenhagen, you'll find many clusters of trade and shops dotted around the city. This makes looking for something in particular, whether it is Danish interior design or the latest fashion trends, even easier. We take you through some of Copenhagen's most interesting areas and streets that are particular great for shopping.


Copenhagen's main shopping street is the longest pedestrian street in the world, running from City Hall Square to Kongens Nytorv station in the centre of the city. Strøget is the perfect place to pick up big brands, both Danish and international, and to visit well-known department stores such as Illum and Magasin du Nord.

Torvehallerne, the Danish and international delicatessen

Close to Nørreport Station, right next to the heart of Copenhagen, is the indoor market area known as Torvehallerne. These two glass buildings buzz every day of the week, except Monday, with vendors and hungry shoppers.

This is the place to head for a bite on the go; for tapas, smørrebrød, sandwiches and an excellent selection of tea, coffee and smoothie stands. It’s also a great place to swing by and pick up delicatessen, fresh fish, meat and produce for dinner. In the summer, take your bite outside and enjoy the continental atmosphere of the market’s outdoor seating area.


A charming and quieter alternative to Strøget is Læderstrædet, which runs one street behind Strøget and contains unique jewellery, clothing and interior boutiques, as well as lovely cafés to take a break in.


One of Copenhagen's coolest streets right now sits at the edge of Assistens Cemetery at Nørrebro, where author Hans Christian Andersen and other famous Danes are buried. Jægersborggade is full of cafés, second-hand and other curiosity shops.

The Latin Quarter

The area around Larsbjørnsstræde, Studiestræde and Sankt Peders Stræde in inner Copenhagen, close to Copenhagen University, is a hub for avant-garde, underground and up-and-coming labels.


The streets around Copenhagen University are the place to head for new and antique bookshops or to sit in a café and relax with a good read.


A stroll around this street and its surrounds will take you past the windows of some of Denmark’s biggest names and brands in fashion and design such as Malene Birger, Bruuns Bazar, and Hay.

Kongens Nytorv

The area in and around Kongens Nytorv (The King’s New Square) buzzes with cutting-edge Danish fashion brands and interior design shops. You’ll find Bang and Olufsen’s flagship store here. Please note that a new metro line is currently being built here, so it is not possible to access the square itself at the moment.


This grand street runs past the royal palace of Amalienborg and contains the city’s finest antique art and furniture dealers. Pick up classics from Arne Jacobsen, Finn Juhl and many other famous Danish designers here.


This district next to the lakes and Østerbrogade has some lovely small boutiques to offer, exclusive to Copenhagen, as well as the Danish design powerhouse, Normann Copenhagen (located in an old cinema). 


A cosy area with many small boutiques. Head to this district to grab a bargain on Royal Copenhagen Porcelain at the Royal Copenhagen Factory Outlet located in the old factory from the late 1800s. The Frederiksberg Centre is also located in this district right next to Frederiksberg station. Here you can browse in a wide selection of 65 shops, including a large supermarket and cafés. 


This area, previously a little rough around the edges, is now the trendiest part of the city. Head to Istedgade and its side streets for small, edgy boutiques. Also swing by Vesterbrogade and find interior design and furniture stores like Designer Zoo and Bolia as well as a wide range of restaurants and bars, if in need of a break on your shopping spree. 

Copenhagen (Kastrup) Airport

If you didn’t have a chance to grab what you wanted in the city, Copenhagen Airport has an excellent selection of Copenhagen’s biggest brands, so you can pick up what you need before you board.
