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 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 taste buds past some caramels, preserve and licorice. 

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.

The Copenhagen food tour was a highlight of my stay in this great city. I loved that it was basically walking tour with an informative narration by our attentive guide. The tour started with a good overview in a gourmet food market where we were offered regional specialties at a series of stalls, a wonderful lunch of open faced sandwiches in casual, but nice restaurant, a tasty local 'polse' at a popular hotdog stand, and we rounded up the tour in a microbrewery with a generous range of beer samples in a cheerful setting. The guide was charming, welcoming and well informed of the city's history, which added to the enjoyment of the experience. There was a lot of fast-paced walking involved, so it may not be for everyone, but is on my list of must do it again for the next time in Copenhagen. I have recommend it to friends. Like all tours, the guide is a big factor in making the same itinerary either terrific or just OK, and our guide was a winner. I would have appreciated better directions to the meeting place.

I loved this tour! It was fun, informative and oh so delicious. Our guide, Rosemary, was fabulous. Her love of the city was infectious. We learned about the neighborhoods we visited and sampled great food. The food! It was all yummy - from the honey at the Botanical Gardens to the smørrebrød at Aamanns and the amazing cheese at Torvehallerne! And there was so much more we ate! The pace was perfect and the amount of walking was just right. I'm so glad we took this tour at the beginning of our vacation. It set the tone for a wonderful trip. Thank you, Rosemary.

The old adage applies: save the best for last. My girlfriend and I only had a few days in Copenhagen, and we were excited that the Copenhagen Food Tour would be our last main event. Birgitte did not disappoint. From the first few minutes of the tour until its waning seconds, Birgitte's passion and excitement never faded. She was extremely knowledgeable about the history of Copenhagen, the role food has played in the country's development and evolution and about the city in general. For a couple of foreigners, her insight gave us a different appreciation of the city, and is something that we will not soon forget. Highly recommended!

We've had the most enjoyable Saturday in Copenhagen with the food tour and our guide Gitte. Not only was Gitte the most aimable and funny person, but fluent in German, English, Danish and Swedish! She led us through Copenhagen always making sure everyone was feeling good. We started at Torvehallerne in Copenhagen with some nice treats and walked a nice long tour through the city, visiting Aamanns, a deli where we had a very delicious choice of smoerrebroed, had a beer tasting in one of the local breweries, ate organic poelser at a local stand in the city and found other nice places, chocolate not being excluded :- Everything garnished with informative and funny anecdotes by our guide. We highly recommend the tour for everyone in Copenhagen and although this was our second visit to the city we found places and areas we hadn't been to the first time. Nordic cuisine is definitely a highlight and the tour gives you a very good first insight into it!!!

We have a wonderful experience walking around Copenhagen and tasting the best of its culinary culture. The number of people in our group was 10, small enough to meet people from around the world and large enough to have a beautiful sharing time.
Our Canadian guide was amazing!
