Shopping/dining in Copenhagen

We found a series of delightful cafe/restaurants in the square by Oksnehallen in the Meat Packing district which is where we were staying.

Carlton became our favourite and we came here night after night - the food was adventurous, well presented and delicious

We loved sitting out in the evenings as the weather was warm and it did not get dark until after 11:00, so it was a delight sitting outside in this quiet square, people gazing while we ate delicious food and drank some wine.

This was our view

and it changed to this when it got dark.


We came upon this flower shop (that strongly reminded me of the ones in Amsterdam), in Humblebaek on our way to Louisiana. So stylish.

The hydrangeas were stunning.

The shop windows were imaginatively dressed: this is an opticians in Kobmagergade.

A very stylish clothes and accessories shop

every feature inside the shop was from a reclamation yard

look at those cupboard doors - not even painted

and isn't the use of these lockers, clever?

On Saturdays there is an antiques flea market in the square by Oksnehallen

with some very good antiques and vintage items rather than the usual tat you tend to find these days. We were lucky and picked up some nice things

Another flea market on Bertel Thorvaldsens Plads - not so good this one, and much more expensive.

Bitter and Rand, in Nyhavn

the shop being as stylish and elegant as their clothes

a temptation to shop but I resisted.

A shop selling vintage on Larsbjornstrade

Ken looks sooo bored.

Illums Bolighus on Stroget

Style and elegance - Danish design at its best

the shop looks good too

one could spend hours here

and we did - on a wet day when we'd had enough of the rain

they sell household goods, furniture, clothes and lots of kitchenalia of impeccable design.

Georg Jensen on Stroget

this staircase is the first thing you see as you enter the shop

very stylish


  1. And thank you so much for thinking of us as you shopped...what a stunning present.
