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.

Very enjoyable tour and food tasting. Maria was a friendly informative guide. We had already been in Copenhagen for a few days but this took us to places we had not found.

This was a spectacular tour. It was interesting because we saw many parts of Copenhagen as well as being tasty. We went back to some of the places and bought the food we really liked. We had the best open-faced sandwiches in Copenhagen on this tour.

Loved this organic food tour. The place where we met was the food market halls and it was great to find out they were there. We had food from upscale and street level venues, all organic, free of pesticides and strange stuff not supposed to be in our food. Thank goodness the Copenhagen people have their farmers united to carry out their noble ventures and feeding its population well.

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!
