Gammel Strand is a pretty, picturesque area with beautifully preserved 18th and 19th century houses, lovely shops, cafes, restaurants and an energetic vibe especially at night. This is a great place to stop for a drink, at one of the many outside cafes, while wandering around the city.

A beautiful little walking street with many shops of all kinds. If you love to watch people, sit and have a cup of coffee, enjoy a great meal and shop, this is a must do in Copenhagen!
