Cross again over the bridge to Nyhavn, in all probability essentially the most photographed spot on the town. A stroll alongside the quayside, lined with eating places and bars, brings you to Kongens Nytorv and, on the far facet, the primary central purchasing district together with the lengthy, pedestrianised stretch of Strøget, which begins simply to the left of Hotel d’Angleterre. Here you’ll discover the super-swish Illum division retailer, the place concessions embody a number of Danish vogue manufacturers, and close by Georg Jensen crammed with supremely covetable silverware.

For quirkier independents, fork off south into Strædet, with its small ceramics and jewelry shops, or dive into the community of streets on the north facet. Hidden away amongst them is Gråbrødretorv, a gorgeous cobbled sq. with loads of bars for a mid-shop pit-stop. If the climate’s nice, Huks Fluks, on the sunny facet of the sq., is an efficient place to take a seat at one of many out of doors tables and watch the world go by.
