Any big city holiday involves a little shopping, and if you are going to Copenhagen, it may be a good idea to leave some room in your bags for the trip back. With all the many different shopping options, Copenhagen is a shoppers’ paradise! So go crazy on Europe’s longest walking street, or let yourself be swept away by the quaint goods of the small niche shops on the narrow streets of Copenhagen and in the colourful neighbourhoods.

    You can also go all-in and visit Copenhagen’s many shopping centres, where you can quickly lose all sense of time and place, with over 100 shops and eateries tempting you with fantastic offers.



    From budget-friendly shops to some of the world’s most expensive brands

    • Shoppers
    • Luxury

    Strøget is Copenhagen’s iconic shopping area, and with its 0.7 miles in length, it is actually Europe’s longest walking street. The street extends more or less in a straight line from the City Hall Square (Rådhuspladsen), past the famous Storkespringvand fountain to Kongens Nytorv, where you can find The Royal Theatre, Magasin and the beautifully-decorated hotel D’Angleterre.

    Along Strøget, you can find everything from women’s and men’s clothes shops, souvenir shops, jewellery shops and toy chains to ice cream bars, pancake houses, restaurants, cafés and bars. You will find international brands like Prada, Max Mara and Louis Vuitton as well as more budget-friendly stores like H&M, Vero Moda and Zara. At Christmas, the beautiful lights of the walking street add to the Christmas spirit, and they are definitely worth a look!

    Location: Frederiksberggade, 1459 Copenhagen K, Denmark

    Open: Monday to Thursday from 10 am to 6 pm, Friday from 10 am to 7 pm, Saturday from 10 am to 4 pm and Sunday from 12 pm to 4 pm.


    The Latin Quarter

    Shop on the Piss Trench (Pisserenden) – it is nicer than the name implies

    • Shoppers

    The Latin Quarter is a charming area in Copenhagen, which goes by the less charming nickname “Pisserenden”. The Piss Trench (Pisserenden) is the popular name for the old part of Nørre Kvarter in the Inner City. In this colourful quarter, you can find a large number of niche shops, where you can buy socks with patterns and clothes in bright colours, which you didn’t even know you needed. You will also find lots of second hand and vintage shops, which offer an entirely different shopping experience than your normal DanChurchSocial (Kirkens Korshær) store.

    If you are a bit of a nerd when it comes to music, comics or role playing, you can find small shops in the Latin Quarter with original comics, records and role playing equipment.

    Cosy street environment and niche shops on Copenhagen’s old dock road

    • Shoppers

    Læderstræde is a cosy street in inner Copenhagen, behind Gammel Strand. The street was originally a dock road, but today it is home to lots of small and peculiar shops selling hand-made jewellery, ceramics and so on. Here, you can also find charming book stores, lovely dress shops and Danish interior design.

    Læderstræde is particularly known for this cosy street environment, where you can also find various cafés and eateries and sit at a small table-and-chair set on the street enjoying a warm cup of coffee or a light meal.

    Make a unique find and support a good cause

    • Budget

    Go treasure hunting at DanChurchSocial (Kirkens Korshær), and find a second-hand gem within vintage clothing or retro furniture – while supporting a good cause run by the national church. In total, there are four DanChurchSocial shops in Copenhagen: one in Frederiksberg, one in Østerbro, one in Nørrebro and another on Amager.

    The second-hand shops in Copenhagen are important parts of the social work that different church associations perform in the city and the surrounding area. For example, the profits from these stores go to providing beds for the homeless or help for needy families, so that they can buy a pork roast or a small gift for their children for Christmas Eve.
