Tours and Tickets

The area
Address
Neighborhood: Inner Vesterbro
This neighbourhood is home to Tivoli Gardens, a world famous amusement park and beautiful garden always worth a visit. Just west of Tivoli, you’ll find Copenhagen Central Station, from where you can reach just about every part of Denmark within 5 or 6 hours, or you can reach Copenhagen Airport in less than 15 minutes. Next to the Central Station, you’re in the middle of “old” Vesterbro, where several cultures and hundreds of languages are spoken in an area not more than one square mile. This neighbourhood is considered one of the most trendy places to live in and to visit in Copenhagen. For a real treat, visit Kødbyen ("meat town"), home to several restaurants, cafés and nightclubs, all within a short walk of each other.
How to get there
  • København Hovedbanegård Station • 6 min walk

Worth a visit
Jan 2020
Small but packed. Lovely lady runs this antique shop, so if you’re looking for vintage or antique Royal Copenhagen ceramics, this place is well worth a visit.

A treasure-trove!
Oct 2019
I had originally discovered this gem in a guidebook; following that reference up online, I put it high on my "to do" list while I was in Copenhagen, Located on a quiet street near the Glyptotek, though small in size, the shop is treasure-trove, with a heavy emphasis on porcelain, china, and crystal/glassware. I was fortunate in finding myself the only customer at that time, so I had privilege of having the undivided attention of the owner, a charming lady who certainly knows her merchandise. I was looking for a Bing and Grondahl figurine - of which she had a selection - to take home as a souvenir. It meant basically having to look through each display case (no hardship, I assure you) until I found one that would make a perfect companion piece to one I already have in my collection. That taken care, I had the pleasure of spending a good half-hour or so simply talking with the owner, and came away even more impressed - and delighted - both with her and with the her shop.

Cautionary note:: again, I stress the fact that the shop is small, and it might be best to visit at a time when you're not unencumbered with other parcels, coats, umbrellas, etc. (I was so scared that one false move of one of my arms or one of my feet would send something shattering the floor.)

Great experience, kind and knowledgable owner
Jul 2019 • Friends
I truly enjoyed both shopping and talking to the owner. We discussed Royal Copenhagen trends and history and connected on our individual appreciation of specific pieces. Visiting this shop is an experience in itself and the pieces are very reasonably priced, in excellent condition and of great variety. A true find.

Lovely store and owner
Jun 2019 • Couples
We went looking for a local antique store for keepsakes to take home from our trip. We found this little antique store and it is such a lovely store. The owner was very kind and welcoming and we loved hearing her stories about her shop and her life. The store mainly carries antique local china and figurines, but she helped us pick out some art prints that were perfect to bring home. Prices are reasonable and she packaged everything up in bubble wrap to ensure a safe trip home.

Hidden Gem for Antique Shopping
Sep 2018 • Friends
Love this place! I found some Wiinblad plates here at good price. The owner is so friendly and she really knows her stuffs. This place is not far from the train station and the museum. So if you are in the area, you should definitely stop by and check this store out.

Magical place!!!
Oct 2018 • Solo
I visited this shop in my latest trip to Copenhagen and had a very pleasant experience. Owner is very friendly and kind woman who is capable to help you with anything you need. She has rather good knowledge of every piece in the shop and is willing to tell you history behind it. The place has its own magical vibe and you can't go wrong with buying any beautiful piece there.

Treasures in the Cellar
Jun 2015 • Couples
My wife an I discovered this lovely little antique shop in the cellar of a building just behind Tivoli Gardens. This shop is filled with lots of different chinaware and all manner of esoteric items . The best part of the store is the kind and warm welcome you will receive from the owner. She loves to chat and will fill in in on the background of her many items. If you don't see what you want, just ask and she probably has it somewhere in the store. If you love Antiques, then don't miss this wonderful shop on your visit to Copenhagen.
