Ok

Nice enough. Bit of a wander, bit of shopping and a drink or two. Not worth going out of your way for but its so central you'll pass by without realising it.

The area is a continuation of the charm of the walking street although it is wider. Its best landmark is the statue of Absalon, the Danish bishop/statesman. It is majestic and well kept.

Gammel Strand is along Strøget in Copenhagen City(pedestrian walk). The street with its old buildings now houses lovely shops, cafes and restaurants. This is a great place to stop for a drink at one of the many outside cafes if you are tired from walking Strøget or while wandering around the city.

One of my Grandmother's most prized possesions were her eight Royal Copenhagen Christmas Plates which the company used to put out yearly.Her oldest one was made in 1927. I loved these plates as well and found myself in RC Christmas place heaven among the vendors on this street. I had to exercise some control, but I still left the city... More

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.

This was a pretty place for a stroll despite the building site of the metro extension. There are nice shops and cafes as well as lovely views of the canal and Christiansborg palace.

Unless the metro station construction is hiding everything I personally don't see why this is listed. To me its a non descript street albeit in the style of Copenhagen.

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!

Staying in Indre By (Inner City)

Neighborhood Profile
Indre By (Inner City)
This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which consists of three buildings, two of which are new and situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and venues of the inner city and its surrounding neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
