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.

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!
