Copenhagen: Shopping Holiday
The Paris of the North
Copenhagen is a hotspot for world-class shopping. The city takes shopping to a new level offering something for everyone. There are several shopping districts such as the world famous Strøget the main pedestrian street and home to top international designers such as Gucci, Burberry and Louis Vuitton. The side streets around the Strøget are also a great place to find boutiques, speciality shops and alternative shopping choices. Local fashion, arts and crafts shops can be found scattered throughout historic Copenhagen near the Town Hall Square and H.C. Andersen Boulevard. The Kronprinsensgade is also a promising area, as is Nansensgade, located on the outskirts of the old town. Norrebro is great for second-hand shops, and caters to a youthful clientele. Former red light district Vesterbro also offers good bargains and is home to gourmet food shops and art shops. Copenhagen offers shoppers unique home and interior design, Danish fashion, and flea markets full of antiques in the summer. Copenhagen also has an up and coming market for second-hand and vintage boutiques. If you’re looking for a mall head to Fisketorv Shopping Centre situated on the waterfront.
