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.

Michelle was an excellent tour guide. Not only did we gain an understanding about Danish food, organic production and a no waste mentality ... we also learned a lot about the Danish economy, the Danish people and culture. Two thumbs up in every way for this tour.
In case you're wondering, the food samples were plentiful and filling. A light breakfast is all you need before you embark on this tour.

Maria was a wonderful tour guide for this most delicious tour of Copenhagen cuisine. We did a lot of walking, went into the park and walked by some very interesting places, learned a little history...all while enjoying a large variety of the food that Copenhagen has to offer. It was all delicious, and in the few places that would be difficult to get back to, we had an opportunity to purchases items during the tour. Fantastic tour...highly recommend.
