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.

Maria was our guide. Maria was awesome!! Her English is flawless and she has a charming dry Danish sense of humor all wrapped up in the local ubiquitous modesty. Exceptionally knowledgeable and totally committed to extraordinary organic and sustainable Nordic food. The group size was seven. Our fellow tour takers were really nice. We started at a two building indoor food marketplace featuring dozens and dozens of extraordinary and unique stands. Foods from all parts of Denmark. Everything was better than good.
A trip to the botanical gardens to to learn about the local honey. Off to the microbrewery to sample Danish craft beer. Sat down and ate open-faced sandwiches the local lunch food which is undergoing a resurgence. Saw Danish hard candy being hand made really cool. Finished with sweets at the market. There were other things but you get the point.
We are foodies. We flew to Copenhagen specifically to eat at Restaurant Noma. Was I ever surprised to learn what a great food city Copenhagen has become. We have done other food tours including Paris. This is the best so far and Maria was the best possible guide.
