The Walking Street
The walking street, or stroget, is not something you would miss, because it goes through the centre of town. It is filled with shops and cafes, but my main reason for going there is its cozy atmosphere. It's one of the places that makes copenhagen what it is. During summer, it is crowded with the cafes' outdoor seating, as well as loads of street performers. During christmas time it is beautifully decorated as in the picture. (Actually decorations start in the beginning of november or even earlier).
A street dedicated for pedestrians, facilitating visitors to shop arounds. Some shops selling amber impress me so much. That is the first time I see insects "trapped" in gemstones. The more and larger the insects are, the higher the price of amber are listed.
Strøget and Latin Quarter
Strøget, said by many to be the longest pedestrian street, is essentially the heart of the city. The combination of the posh shops, familiar places (e.g., McDonald's, 7-11), and the downright touristy, in one of the most (arguably) architecturally beautiful and harmonious places in the world make for a day spent in and around Strøget and Latin Quarter to be well worth it.
This is supposed to be one of the longest shopping streets in Europe. I have to say that it certainly wasn't like Oxford Street in London and therefore appealed to me more.
At the time I was only able to window shop as I was on a restricted budget. Those were the days when I was a poor junior accountant. I must go back sometime and take some spending money!
I believe this is the longest pedestrian walkway in all of Europe, it is actually 5 different streets but you can't tell, it seems like one very long street with no vehicles. A few churches on the street or very close by, many shops and some restaurants. There is a large monument/fountain about two thirds along the way.

Take a walk on 'Stroget', the walk street traversing part of the city. Lots of shopping for those that are in the mood.
Last time I visited there was an outdoors Botero exhibit all over Stroget. On one of the squares there is an iceskating arena in the wintertime. Rental skates are ok and run you about $4 for an hour.
Strøget is Copenhagen's main shopping avenue, a lengthy pedestrianised street that runs from the Town Hall Square. This is where to shop for chunky Danish sweaters, pricy Bang and Olufsen stereo equipment, or Lego merchandise for the kids back home. Look out for the royal warrants indicating that Denmark's royal family is a customer. If you get tired of shopping, there are plenty of cafés and bars to duck into.
I ampled down this street many a time. Always plenty of window shopping, people to watch, and street performers of all sorts.
Just walking in Stroget
I have spent only a weekend in Copenhagen. Mostly I was walking in the down Town, stoping sometimes for glass of drink ( very expencive there). It is nice just to look around.

STROGET EQUALS TO OXFORD STREET
Shopalcoholic paradise in Scandinavian countries. Claimed to be the longest shopping street in Europe.
This is "Strøget" which is the major pedestrian street in central Copenhagen. It is full of all kinds of stores and is very long. Shop 'til you drop!
Copenhagen Central - 2
So, crossing this road you enter the shopping lanes other side. I was waiting for the signal. Danes are fond of fast food which is agreeable by the proud presence of Burgerking.
Much of central Copenhagen is closed to traffic. Hundreds of shops line the pedestrian streets, and I think I've been to all of them :)
