The area
Address
Neighborhood: 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.
How to get there

Best design store in The world
Jun 2019
This store is a must for design lovers visiting Copenhagen. There is simply no other store in the world able to display such a volume and variety of exquisitely curated design objects. Very easy to spend hours visiting it, Illums Bolighus is really a wonderful place to contemplate and to buy the best of Scandinavian design.

Don't bother to go in Illums Bolighus if you want to be treated well.
Dec 2019
I am sorry to say that I cannot recommend that people shop at the main Copenhagen Illums Bolighus if you want polite, friendly customer service. I searched for just one helpful, pleasant cashier in the store on December 30th and alas, none to be found. They are an expensive and elite store and I looked forward to shopping for a number of things there.
I left dismayed and journeyed on to Magasin and Artium for the same items- which I found. I was treated and respected with much more attention than at Illums. I have shopped at Nordstrom, Bloomingdales, Lord and Taylor and have never had the cold shoulder I experienced at Illums Bolighus. Interestingly - I shopped a bit at their highly regarded neighbors, Royal Copenhagen and Georg Jensen, and was welcomed and treated very well.
No excuse for such poor welcoming at Illums Bolighus.

Wonderful store of Denmark
Oct 2019
That store is wonderful and it is the top from design. You can find there everything what you remember but everything is connected with Danish desing. There are several floors full of things. Beautiful, especially before Christmas. This place is situated on Stroeget right next to Disney Shop.

Terrific department store
Dec 2019
set on the Stroget in the centre of Kobenhavn, this is a must visit shop wen in the city. The kitchen accessories shop on the ground floor should not be missed if you are an amateur (or professional) cook.

Top class department store!
May 2019
When staying in Copenhagen again, we were enjoying some retail therapy along Stroget. Whilst doing this we came upon this department store which we had visited during our first trip to Copenhagen, two years ago.
Little had changed since our initial visit. The store still had very elegant displays of top quality goods across a range of different departments. The shop assistants were still attentive without being intrusive. The prices were appropriate for the quality of goods stocked.
This Illums Bolighus department store is certainly not the largest department store in Copenhagen. However, it is one that we wouldn’t hesitate to shop in, should we visit this city again.

Wow! Just Wow!
Aug 2019 • Family
We had planned to visit the Danish Design Museum but we were pretty wiped out from walking. Instead we went to take a peek at Illums Bolinghus and ended up staying for two hours! A must see for anyone who would like to see Scandinavian design up close. Of course we couldn’t leave without making a purchase! Our teenager loved it.

Best department store for design utensils.
Jul 2019 • Couples
I haven't seen a larger selection anywhere yet. Beside kitchen utensils there is a lot for the garden and generally beautiful design objects for the household.

Shopping paradise - not to be confused with Illum the department store
May 2019 • Friends
Best described as a Scandinavian design and home goods store - it's a wonderful 4-level collection of items by varied Scandinavian designers or design houses. Everything from ceramics and glassware (of course), to jewelry, bags, Christmas decorations, art prints, bed linens, some clothing. If you love shopping craft fairs and independent makers, this store is right up your alley.

Oustanding Danish Design home furnishings to be seen
Apr 2019 • Business
If you really want to see a display of Danish design in the way home furnishings, this is the best place. Some of the well known Danish brands are displayed, Stelton, Louis Poulsen, Fritz Hansen, Arne Jacobsen are some brands that come to mind.

Fantastic store
Mar 2019 • Family
This store is the best thing in Copenhagen. It is better than a museum. It has all the classic chair designs and you can sit in them.They have a Kay Bojensen display and sale. The kitchenware is amazing. If you need a gift you will find it here. Service is first rate.
