Strøget & shopping, Copenhagen
Favorite thing: Very good people watching AND cakes can be had where Amagertorv meets Højbro Plads along the Strøget pedestrian street. Sure, it is where everyone passes up and down Strøget and therefore crowded (watch out for pickpockets - especially in connection with street performances!) but it does have some of Copenhagen's most popular cafes: the Europa and Norden respectively, which are great for resting your feet and enjoying Danish baking skills.
Behind where I'm standing when I took this is Stroget which is a walking street where shopping and eating is the thing to do. There are many good restaurants while walking Stroget.
To the left is one entrance into Tivoli and to the left is what appears to be office buildings.
At night, they are nicely lit.
Fondest memory: Walking inside Tivoli at night.
On the Main shopping street Str?get halfway between the City Hall Square and Kongens Nytorv where the Royal Theater is located you will find Amagertorv. It has existed since the Middle Ages when it was a fish market and later vegetables from the farms on the island of Amager - hence the name, were sold here. This use as market place ceased in 1868 and to-day Amager Torv and the "Stork Fountain" is a popular meeting place for the Copenhageners.
Strolling up and down in "Stroget" can take your whole day.. It is a quiet long pedestrain street with many shops, Cafes, department stores and Restaurants..
The street is also hosting many music players to perform their talents..
Fondest memory: Most streets in the inner part are for the people only. “Strøget” is the 1.8 km long strip between “Rådhuspladsen” and “Kongens Nytorv” including 6 different streets and squares (with their own names!). Every evening (even in the cold period) many different buskers, mimes and jugglers are filling the strip with creativity, colour and people.
go shopping in the old area. The Strøget is a long pedestrian street that leads from the City Council Square to the Royal Square. There are many interesting shops and cafés in the area. Don't forget to take a look at the last designs by Bang & Olufsen. Another must is Les Magasins du Nord, on the Royal Square: an elegant department store where you will be able to renew your closet with the trendiest clothes.
Fondest memory: The old town has also many interesting buildings: the small cathedral, the round tower and its awesome view of the city, tiny cobble streets...
Stroll along the Stroget pedestrian mall. The pedestrian zone starts at Radhuspladsen, near Tivoli and runs to Kongens Nytorv near Nyhavn canal. It is made up of 5 continuous streets.
Fondest memory: This building with a fountain located on one of the squares in this pedestrian area.
Favorite thing: Copenhagen is a walking city, so you have to go through the Stroget, or pedestrian-only street (actually, it changes its name several times between Tivoli and its terminus near Nyhavn). There are many shops and sights along the way. This picture was taken at the northern end near Tivoli Gardens.
Favorite thing: Kobmagergade is a main shopping street in Copenhagen...there were plenty of expensive shops along here. :)
Favorite thing: You have to do a walking tour through Strøget. There are shops, restaurants, museums, landmarks, and lots and lots and lots of people!
