Shopping in Copenhagen

Amagertorv, Near Stroøget shopping district in Copenhagen, Denmark

During our trip to Copenhagen, I was most excited about the shopping. I have to confess that I saved up a good deal of money to spend during our trip, but am also proud to say that I did not spend it all (Thanks, Summer sales!). Almost every store we walked into felt like home for me. I can’t say that about being in the United States. There are some stores where I find a good deal of items I like, but none that really resonate with me to the full extent.

Hay Shop at Strøget in Copenhagen, Denmark

Strøget
Strøget is located in downtown Copenhagen. It was very easy walking distance from our hotel, but at 1.1KM in length, it is one of the longest pedestrian shopping malls in Europe. Don’t be fooled if some of the places seem small from the outside, when we walked into Illum I was amazed to learn it was actually a huge department store / mall type place. Strøget can be a very busy place, so relax and take your time.

Fisketorvet Mall in Copenhagen, Denmark

Fisketorvet Mall
This mall is located just a 10 minute walk from Copenhagen city center. Our hotel was near so it made an easy walk for us. It has three levels, a good selection of stores (including grocery and beauty supply!), and the interactive map is perfect to get around. There is even a play area and a fish tank that the boys really enjoyed. Fisketorvet is located at Kalvebod Brygge 59, 1560 København V, Copenhagen, Denmark.

Emporia Mall in Malmö, Sweden

Emporia Mall
This is a little outside of Copenhagen, but worth including in this list. To get here you will need to take the train to Malmö, Sweden. It is a 30 minute train ride, but it doesn’t seem that long since the train ride across Øresund bridge (connects Denmark and Sweden) is quite interesting. Photos don’t quite do this mall justice, as it’s architecture seems gravity defying. Emporia is located at Hyllie Boulevard 19, 215 32, Malmö, Sweden.

Shopping in Copenhagen is one of my all-time favorite activities, even if it’s just window shopping. Everything is beautiful. There are obviously a lot more places to shop and enjoy in Copenhagen and Malmö, but these are the places that we were personally able to visit and enjoy.

Do you have any favorite places to shop near Copenhagen, Denmark?

  1. Guh. Copenhagen is high on my list of places I’d like to visit. Don’t know if I’d necessarily go shopping there, but you make a good case. 😉

  2. Copenhagen was the very first stop on our Europe trip, where we flew into, when we backpacked around for a couple months a few years ago. It was SUCH a good “welcome to Europe” intro! We didn’t really go into any shops because we were careful about spending as we needed our money to last as long as possible, but we did walk up and down the huge shopping street!

  3. Oooh Copenhagen is on my list of weekend trips for the year. This is a great post, I’ve saved it so I have a list of approved places to shop when we go.
    Your photos are gorgeous xx

  4. Glad to see you enjoyed the city I call home. It truly is a great place for shopping! 🙂 If you get the chance to visit again, you should check out Nørrebro where there’s sooo many small unique stores.

    1. I am still trying to convince Steve to move there. 🙂 We did go to Fælledparken via Nørrebro but didn’t stop at any shops along the way as we rode bikes from the Zoo and were on a mission, haha. I can’t wait to go back.

  5. I love Scandinavian style -I probably would have wanted to buy everything in sight! Your photos capture this magical town so beautifully!
