Copenhagen's food and dining offerings are considered among the most innovative in the world, with high-end, experimental fusion cuisine, traditional Viking dishes and sustainable farming contributing even to casual eateries. It's the home of the New Nordic wave, which has been going on here for years. Fish and beer are at the centre of the city's foodie culture, but this DNA contributes to a wide range of different cuisines. 

Copenhagen is famed for being a green, sustainable city, and this influences the cuisine as well. You'll experience fresh foods with organic produce that's locally grown. You'll see green methods, sustainable packaging and very minimal food waste while still enjoying delicious food at surprisingly affordable price points. From hot dogs to 50-course menus (no exaggeration), you'll find outstanding food of all kinds here.
