I know, I know, if you're from the USA you haven't come to Copenhagen to go a shopping mall! But if you ever face a rainy day in Denmark - and it could just happen - the shiny new "Fields" center in Ørestad is a good place to get some of your gift shopping for the folks back home.
What to buy: All the standard stuff
What to pay: Lots of Krøner, but who's counting?
Europeans and Americans has long had a thing for shopping malls. Now another of these malls has opened just outside Copenhagen. Bigger than ever. With it's very own highway intersection, and close to the airport: Fields
When at Kastrup airport, and you intend to look for some shopping, look no further as there is a large shopping center a couple of train stops away from the airport with much better choices and prices. Virtually just tobacco is cheaper at the airport.
From the baggage hall at the airport, you walk straight ahead through the terminal until you see the exit on both sides to the train. By a ticket for 2 zones either in the machine or at the desk (just ask for Field's shopping center). Walk down to the train stop. Make sure you chose the exit NOT marked Malmø, or you'll end up in Sweden. If the train is marked Nivå or Helsingør, you are on the right track, literally.
Ride to the second train stop called Ørestad, and you're at Field's shopping center.
If you have time to spare, you should forget about shopping at the airport, as the prices are outrageous on most items.
What to buy: Field's is an enormous mall with all sorts of shops. For something really danish, try the supermarket and look for food items.
Danish made cookies and chocolates are nice. Winegums too. Fish lovers can buy nice pickled herring in jars. A fast lunch on the street should involve a traditional hot dog from one of the street vendors.
What to pay: Scandinavia is not cheap, but looking for local products will get you a nice price.
Hello, I have just checked it and unfortunately there is no C&A story in Copenhagen. I have checked it on their website and also I don't remember having seen or come across their logo. Normally, when I see a logo I would recall it. But there are hundreds of other similar shops you may want to check out. For example, check these: http://www.fields.dk/ (huge shopping mall), here is another one http://fisketorvet.dk/en/. They have lists of all shops you may want to check out prior our trip. Good luck!
What to buy: pretty much everything you can thing of
What to pay: varies
