About Copenhagen Shopping
All prestigious cities boast their own distinctive products, and Copenhagen is no different. In fact, Denmarks capital sets the standard for regional shopping, offering a well-rounded selection of hometown options. Thanks to the citys relatively small footprint, shops and boutiques are easily accessible, no matter where you are. Even better, Strøget Europes largest, uninterrupted pedestrian strip is a veritable treasure trove of retail temptation, and the streets that branch off of it offer additional possibilities. For characteristically Danish goods, look to Royal Copenhagen Porcelain, which builds its reputation on exquisite, hand-painted items. Georg Jensen sells superb silver wares, including jewelry, gifts, and table settings. Several shops specialize in amber, incorporating it into jewelry or carving it into decorative accents and souvenirs. Other eye-catching goods include glassware, Carlsberg beer, and sleek, well-crafted Danish Modern furniture. Since the Øresund Bridge opened in 2000, many Swedes now make the drive to Copenhagen to take advantage of its extensive fashions and luxury items. As a result, visitors find Copenhagen a busy retail city, abundantly stocked for whatever they may need or desire.
