Smørrebrød, Bacon, Hyper-local gastronomy, and everything in between

A Nordic Foodie Paradise

Smørrebrød, Bacon, Hyper-local gastronomy, and everything in between

Danish Food

Denmark is known as the epicenter of the New Nordic Cuisine movement and for good reason: Denmark is home to 28 Michelin-starred restaurants, 15 of these in Copenhagen, 4 in Aarhus and more across the Danish countryside. This emphasis on seasonal produce merged with great aesthetic care has established Copenhagen and now the rest of Denmark, too, as a global foodie destination. Just don't forget to try Smørrebrød, open-faced sandwiches piled high with delicious toppings. And if you prefer something on the go, do as the Danes and try a Danish hotdog from one of the many hot dog stands.
