The center of Copenhagen is extensive. The long shopping street Strøget is the main artery of this part of town, but not all Copenhageners find the street very attractive as the place is packed with locals, visitors and street performers during opening hours.

Indre By (Downtown) has a lot to offer, for example the gourmet restaurant Clou on Borgergade. The Berntsen brothers serve delicious elegance in the restaurant, the wine bar and the adjoining wine store. But in Indre By, there are actually several of Copenhagen’s best gastronomic experiences. Madklubben is a rapidly growing concept with delicious food, that aren't to expensive. There are also Madklubben restaurants in other parts of town.

Nyhavn rhymes with Danish. Numerous restaurants, cafés and bars serve considerable amounts of draft beer to thirsty locals and tourists and many of these places also serve Danish classics such as “smørrebrød” and “stjerneskud”. At one end of Nyhavn is the big theatre Skuespilhuset on Kvæsthusmolen and at the other end is The Royal Theatre at Kongens Nytorv. The square, however, is closed off at the moment due to Metro construction.

One of the most popular green areas is Kongens Have ( Kings Garden) by Rosenborg Slot and during the summer season the grass is covered with sunbathing Copenhageners. Tivoli is, with more than 170 years behind it, one of the wolrd’s oldest amusement parks and the old garden is still a hit with both children and adults. In the garden there is, among many other restaurants, Nimbs Terrasse. They serve food from a Danish-French kitchen in beautiful surroundings and the food can be enjoyed on the terrace, indoors or in one of the small, half-open glass gazebos.

Torvehallerne, which are located close to Nørreport, are hugely popular. It is at huge indoor and outdoor marketplace, where you’ll find, among many other things, organic fruit and vegetables, luxurious chocolate and aromatic tea. But you will also finds Gorm’s delicious pizzas and home-roasted coffee from The Coffee Collective.

Many Copenhageners love strolling or running around Søerne ( The city-lakes). There are four of them and they are located right next to each other. There are also plenty of cafés.

If you’re going out, Gammel Strand is the place to go. You could start off with an iconic burger at Cock’s & Cows and continue the party with the cocktail experts at Ruby afterward.

If you want to spice up your night, you could swing by Culture Box on Kronprinsessegade, which has attracted the best DJs from all over the world for many years.
