What You Can Expect

Copenhagen Food Tour

Try artisan cheese on your Copenhagen Food Tour!

Join your guide in central Copenhagen and set off on your 4-hour food tour of the city’s food repertoire and gastronomic heritage.

Having had a fairly staid culinary reputation, the Danish capital has recently emerged as a foodie's paradise, as local chefs turn to light, seasonal and innovative ingredients, and zingy, minimalist flavors rather than the stodgier, comfort Danish staples of the past.


Stroll around the buzzing streets and let your guide show you the locals’ best-loved eateries. The city’s boundary-pushing food scene is in a continuous state of flux, so food stops may vary on the day of your tour. The places mentioned simply give you an idea as to the types of of eateries and outlets you might call at.

Work your way to the Torvehallerne indoor market and pause at Arla Unika, Copenhagen’s trendiest cheese vendor. Sample some artisan cheeses created in collaboration with Michelin-star-awarded chefs, and peruse the goodies. Then, head for the Bornholm Shop to run your tastebuds past some caramels, preserve and liquorice. 



Meander around the pretty Copenhagen Botanical Gardens and taste some crisp, Danish apple wine, before calling at the Aamanns café – where the customers dig into smørrebrød — tasty, rye sourdough bread open sandwiches topped with mostly organic and free-range ingredients. Saunter on to Nørrebro Bryghus, a beer connoisseur’s café and restaurant. Taste three home-brewed beers, and then sink your teeth into an organic hotdog bite at the Ecological Hotdog Stand.



Finally, head for Summerbird Chocolate. One of Copenhagen’s most innovative makers of luxury chocolate and candy, this upscale chocolatier receives rave reviews from locals for its hugely moreish flødeboller – chocolate-encased marshmallows.



After getting a real flavor of Copenhagen’s culinary delights, your tour ends back at the start point.

I definitely would definitely recommend this tour. Our guide Rosemary was lovely, she went out of her way to ensure we had a good experience. You get to see parts of Copenhagen which you would not normally see as a tourist. I even went back afterwards to buy some of the products from the food tour.

With only one full day to spend in Copenhagen, this tour turned out to be the perfect way to experience a little taste of Copenhagen. Our tour guide, Rosemarie, was friendly, educational, passionate, and all around awesome. Be prepared to walk! And go with an empty stomach because we ended up eating quite a bit small bites, open faced sandwiches -- which were amazing, beer, hot dogs, candy, licorice and trying some new things. Highly recommend and we were so glad we chose to do this. Have fun!

This tour is excellent - I have done food tours in other cities with 3 or 4 stops but this tour had around 7 or 8 different food/drink experiences. Be sure to wear comfortable shoes as the tour is on foot but the pace is perfect and not a tough stretch on the legs at all. I was lucky enough to be in a tour of one which meant lots of personalized insights. My guide Iben was absolutely fantastic. She was knowledgable, engaging and the passion she has for her work shone through. In summary, this was a real highlight of the trip to Copenhagen and a great way to spend 4 hours while taking in some of the lesser known parts of the city.

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!

What a fantastic tour! My guide was exceptionally informative, a wealth of information, and extremely professional. The tour included a stop at the markets with food tastings, along with a number of restaurants, a brewery, and a candy shop. I highly recommend taking this food tour through Copenhagen - it's well worth it!

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.
