Shopping and dining

In the old town, Strøget is actually a collection of pedestrian streets, lined with shops, cafés and restaurants, that extend from this central thoroughfare. These streets lie between the large squares, to the east by Kogens Nytorv and to the west by Radhuspladsen. You won't find the name Strøget on road signs or city maps, but if you ask Copenhagen where to find Strøget, you'll probably get a simple answer.

Eating out and drinking out is quite expensive, but the options are endless: from hot Thai curries to traditional "frikadellers" (Danish meatballs), from sushi to the typical smørrebrød served for lunch, these smørrebrød have all kinds of spicy toppings, which usually including a boiled egg and dill, beetroot, mackerel, roasted onion, cold cuts and goose or pork sauce.
