“Great Shopping District in Central Copenhagen”
Reviewed October 14, 2013

The Stroget was an excellent experience. All the usual shops were available, but the best place we visited was a local art gallery, "Gallery Lb," which we discovered while walking the streets of the Stroget. We met a wonderful local artist, Ulla Hauer, and were able to purchase her artworks after learning about the process she used to create her photographic art installation. The installation was even more special because much of the subject material centered around Copenhagen and Denmark.

“My trip”
Reviewed October 4, 2013

Dont forget to visit "Christiania" a world of its own, and very interesting! The place is completely self sufficient and was not always looked at with approving eyes. Anyway, I always wanted to go there and finally did. It was worth it, met some wonderful people and stayed there for half the day.
It has proberbly changed over the years as everything does, but the place is still going strong obviously, so these people must be doing something right - a different way of living that we could learn from, but is still in minority as far as opinions are concerned...

“A Tourist's Dream street!”
Reviewed September 28, 2013

Pronounced, 'Stroll' this car-free lane has every tourist gift possible in many stores, with cobblestone street in the center. Whether you are on foot or bike, you can get trinkets for the whole family, then finish up with a delicious Shwarma and ice cream for dinner.

“Go exploring! There's more to this area than just shopping.”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

The longest and oldest (apparently) pedestrianized street system in the world starts from Kongens Nytorv (at the end of Nyhavn) and cuts through the district of Indre By (City Centre) right down to the older part of København. Be brave and take off down some of the quaint side-turns - there are some typical Danish street scenes to discover (see photo), and it's not hard to find your way back to the 'main drag.'
The first part of Stroget opens out onto Amagertorv, where you get a great view of Christiansborg Slot - and in our case, a revised concept of the city's relative layout! There's a gorgeous coffee shop, Café Norden, on the corner of Amagertorv and Østergade - it's pricey but if you fancy a treat, grab one of the sofas or comfy chairs on the first floor for a coffee and a spot of people-watching.
Carry on down Amagertorv and you will hit the Old City, including Gammel Torv (Old Market). Or if you are looking for bookshops, take a left from Østergade on to Købmagergade and keep going till you get to the area around the Rundetarn (the Round Tower - itself well worth a visit but that's another story); there is a cluster of bookshops in this part of town. This is the Latin Quarter, and you may like to round off your explorations by strolling round this area....

“Lots to do around Stroget”
Reviewed September 20, 2013

This is Copenhagen's largest shopping area and supposedly a "Pedestrian" street. Beware though, delivery trucks, cars and cycles use this as a thoroughfare and are not kind to pedestrians.

The street is about a km long and full of great stores and eating places. A major department store, Illum, has a few entrances on Stroget and is a great store. The "Round Tower" is just a few blocks off Stroget, as is Nyhavn and City Hall.

If you like pastries, do not miss Lagkagehuset Bakery, the best bakery and pastries in Copenhagen, and maybe Europe.
