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.

4 hours lots of walking on streets we had not yet discovered. Good variety of food and drink. Guide read the group well. Our guide Maria was pleasant and somewhat knowledgeable, it’s hard to know when she is telling you facts you hadn’t heard before. I have since discovered somethings were not true - which in the end makes all facts questionable. Our guide was not happy that HER tour was not our first stop in the city. She recommends you do her tour on your first day in the city. The only overlap for us was the DØP hotdog stand. Loved the craft beer stop!
We wanted to get a local perspective on Copenhagen and sample local cuisine. Our tour guide was informative and friendly and we got to see parts of the city we wouldn’t have on our own in our short visit timeframe.
We had Kristina as our tour guide. She's great! I couldn't believe how much food and alcohol came on this tour - a cheese snack plate and a rye biscuit mustard, licorice, caramel, snaps tasting all in Torvehallerne. Then it was off to Aamanns for a tasting of FOUR smorrebrod. There was a walk to beehives by the botanical garden, then a longer walk to Norrebro Bryghus for beer tasting and snacks!. Then we headed back to the area by the Round Tower for a Danish hotdog, then to a traditional candy shop. We ended up back in Torvehallerne for chocolate at Summerbird. So much food! So worth it.
i have to start by saying our tour was on a very cold day, but our guide overcame the conditions with her attitude and knowledge. I think a food tour is a great way to get the lay of a city and found out some history in addition to enjoying some great food and getting dining recommendations. Kirstina was great. Her knowledge of the area, history and food traditions was fantastic. I would highly recommend taking this tour early on in your trip in you enjoy food and walking.
