There seemed to be less tourists and more locals when we visited. We ordered the small lunch tasting menu which was delicious except for the cheese. The cheese wasn't that great, or it might be an acquired taste. Even the locals sitting next to us chuckled and said, "we don't even eat that." But we did get free schnapps. The... More

Looking for a traditional open sandwich and atmosphere. A busy place we were in lunch and scored a lunch time table. Helpful and attentive waiters with prompt service and advice about the choice of one of 140 Snaps to go with our meal.

A MUST when visiting Copenhagen. Make reservations ahead of time and get ready for a fantastic Danish lunch experience. Service is impeccable the food is fresh, flavorful and beautifully presented. Between the two of us we sampled pickled herring, roast beef, a fried fish and everything was excellent.

Schønnemann has some of the best and most delicious smørrebrød in whole Copenhagen alongside a large variety of snaps and beer. We visited this place for lunch for two, with friends and did even celebrate our wedding with 30 guest here. It's a must-go if you are into smørrebrød, but you need to book a table in advance.

Traditional looking place. We ordered a sandwich teller and a meat ball (hakkebøff) for EUR 80, so it's not directly cheap. But the food tasted good. They also offer liquor, where the glasses are really filled to the rim and even a bit more. They said that they surcharge for credit cards, so we paid in cash. This is something... More

What wasn't clear when we booked is that this lunchtime only restaurant in fact operates 2 sittings, one at noon and the other st 2:15pm. We chose the latter and built up an appetite which you will need. There are over a hundred choices of smørsbrød as well as a schnapps menu that will further confuse you but our waiter... More

Great, old classic smorrebrod joint. We had a herring dish which was very good with aquavit, though one would have been enough for 2 people to share. The shrimp pyramid was as nice to look at as it was to eat. A real work of art.

If Schönneman had not already received a series of prizes from newspapers and guidebooks,it would be unwise to reveal it here:might be trickier to get a table.However,since the story is already out,this is simply the very best smörrebröd restaurant in Denmark.Open sandwiches are often art,here they are masterpieces.A fried plaice is light and crispy,the amazing veal breast is accompanied by...

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.
