Strøget#12 in Best Things To Do in Copenhagen
- 4.0Food Scene
Situated in Indre By between H. C. Andersens Boulevard and King's New Square, Strøget is one of the longest pedestrian streets in Europe and Copenhagen's largest shopping area. It contains a series of interconnected streets that are lined with numerous boutiques and cafes. You'll find upscale brands like Burberry, Gucci and Louis Vuitton here, so make sure to bring your credit card.
If you're not looking to splurge, you can always window-shop along the way. You'll also run into many entertaining street performers along Strøget, but be wary of hustlers selling counterfeit goods and doing the old "guess which cup the ball is under" trick.
Visitors have mixed feelings about this shopping thoroughfare. While some say it offers a charming atmosphere (think: historic buildings and sidewalk cafes) and a wide array of stores, others lament its lack of smaller, more local options and suggest skipping it.
Nyhavn, the Round Tower and Christiansborg Palace are all within walking distance of Strøget. Street parking is available nearby, or you can get to the area by taking the metro to Kongens Nytorv station or the No. 1A, 10, 14, 26 or 350S bus. The street is free to visit 24 hours a day, but hours and prices vary by shop and restaurant. To learn more, check out Wonderful Copenhagen's Strøget page.
