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.

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.

It is one of the highlights of our trip to Copenhagen. Our guide Maria was very knowledgeable and friendly. The tour was not only a food tour but also an opportunity to learn more about Copenhagen's history and customs, Danish history and interesting facts. We sampled various local / organic products, including cheese, candy, beer, open sandwiches, honey, chocolate, hot dogs, etc. It was a very pleasant tour, and we highly recommend it without any reservations!

Highlight of our trip to Copenhagen. Not only did we enjoy all the food but we had a great walk around the city. The commentary was interesting. I didn't feel like I was being lectured at but rather talked to as a friend. The guide was very approachable and nice. Would highly recommend.
