Here you find all types of typical Danish souvenir items starting from Books of Christian Andersen, CDs, fruits baskets, pickles, jams, wine, crockeries and cutleries, aprons, etc. The shop is located in one of the old houses at Den gamle By.

Bazar Vest: Not Danish at all I like it
Bazar means market in Arabic. Bazar Vest isMuslim market, from Arabic, Turkish, Indian and African culture.
Food: Arabic bread, Indian curry bread & tea, Turkish vegetable bread & desert are recommended.
Turkish fruit & vegetable stand: fresh & cheap. One can pick himself and the cost depends on its weight. I love especially tomato and baby potoato.
Turkish store: selling souvenirs and life stuffs. The quality is not good and price not low.
Music record: sell mainly cassette. Muslim stars are in different fashion.
Addition: Near Bazar there are many departments for Turks and Solmalian (due to the civil war in 1997 many Solmalian came to Denmark for asylum). Because of different culture, I feel distant with them. Solmalian people speak loud and make me somehow afriad, but I believe their nature is kind.

Badstue rock, Scavenger records: music
these 2 shops are the best for alternative music. Badstue rock also have a large selection of second hand cds and vinyl and scavenger sells a lotta vinyls u cant get alsewhere.
