What You Can Expect

Copenhagen Food Tour

Try artisan cheese on your Copenhagen Food Tour!

After meeting your guide near Frederiksborggade in central Copenhagen, stroll around the city to learn about Danish cuisine and its gastronomic heritage. Throughout the past few decades, Denmark gained quite a conservative reputation when it came to food. However, its cuisine is experiencing a food revolution and many Copenhagen restaurants are replacing the heavy dishes of bygone decades with meals cooked from seasonal, local ingredients that sing with clean and pared-down flavors.

The best place to sample the new Nordic cuisine is, of course, in Copenhagen, so let your guide introduce you to the locals’ favorite eateries. The city’s burgeoning food scene is constantly evolving, so restaurants and delicatessens may be swapped on the day of your tour. Places mentioned are just intended to give you an idea of where you may visit.

Start with a stroll to Torvehallerne covered market halls to see Arla Unika, Copenhagen’s flagship cheese shop. Sample artisan cheese, developed in collaboration with the city’s Michelin-starred chefs, and admire the pungent wares on offer before strolling to Bornholm Shop to try liquorice, caramels and preserves.

Wander through Copenhagen Botanical Gardens and stop for a sample of of Danish apple wine while relaxing in the beautiful green surroundings. Then, take a break in Aamanns café – a hotspot for locals enjoying hearty open sandwiches called smørrebrød made from sourdough rye bread and predominantly organic and free range produce. Continue to a nearby restaurant called Nørrebro Bryghus to sample three different types of home-brewed beer, and then soak up the alcohol with an organic hotdog sample from Copenhagen’s Ecological Hotdog Stand.

Finish your tour at Summerbird Chocolate. Producing Copenhagen’s most luxurious chocolate and candy, the shop is also popular for its (highly addictive) flødeboller – chocolate-coated marshmallows.

Having eaten your way around Copenhagen, return to the start point where your tour finishes.

We enjoyed our food tour so much. Rosemarie was a great guide and a wealth of information about the food, history and culture of Denmark. It was the highlight of our trip! Nice variety of food and drink samplings. Very organized. We would definitely do this again.

Rosemary was a fantastic tour guide, and was able to tell us not just about the food, but about the history and life in Copenhagen. I really enjoyed this tour, seeing different parts of the city, and popping into places spontaneously when we spotted them on the way. There was some walking, but I was more than happy with it and the pace was not too fast for me. Great stuff!

We were a group of 12 who met on a rainy Saturday morning. We made numerous stops including local markets, the botanical garden trying honey, restaurants and a microbrewery. Our guide, originally from Montreal, did a nice job of explaining where we were, the history and the types of food we were eating. She kept us on time even in the rain. We went into neighborhoods off the beaten path as well.

Very knowledgable owner/guide. Maria led us around the market place and other artisanal establishments on this walking tour. It is booked solid for justifiable reasons.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2015

So much fun!!!! This food tour was great. The guide provided a lot of history about the city and sites while sharing with us many different food and drink venues. Alternative were provided for those who couldn't/didn't want to drink the alcohol provided. The amount of food that we were given was substantial and all really authentic and delicious. The tour lasted the full 4 hours. There was a lot of strolling/walking. We covered a lot of territory. I would highly recommend this to anyone visiting Copenhagen in the future.
