Returns to original departure point
Join your guide in central Copenhagen and set off on your half-day food tour of the city’s food repertoire and gastronomic heritage.

Having had a fairly staid culinary reputation, the Danish capital has recently emerged as a foodie's paradise, as local chefs turn to light, seasonal and innovative ingredients, and zingy, minimalist flavors rather than the stodgier, comfort Danish staples of the past.

Stroll around the buzzing streets and let your guide show you the locals’ best-loved eateries. The city’s boundary-pushing food scene is in a continuous state of flux, so food stops may vary on the day of your tour. The places mentioned simply give you an idea as to the types of eateries and outlets you might call at.

Work your way to the Torvehallerne indoor market and pause at Arla Unika, Copenhagen’s trendiest cheese vendor. Sample some artisan cheeses created in collaboration with Michelin-star-awarded chefs, and peruse the goodies. Then, head for the Bornholm Shop to run your taste buds past some caramels, preserve and licorice. Meander around the pretty Copenhagen Botanical Gardens and taste some crisp, Danish apple wine, before calling at the Aamanns café – where the customers dig into smørrebrød — tasty, rye sourdough bread open sandwiches topped with mostly organic and free-range ingredients. Saunter on to Nørrebro Bryghus, a beer connoisseur’s café and restaurant. Taste three home-brewed beers, and then sink your teeth into an organic hotdog bite at the Ecological Hotdog Stand.Finally, head for Summerbird Chocolate. One of Copenhagen’s most innovative makers of luxury chocolate and candy, this upscale chocolatier receives rave reviews from locals for its hugely moreish flødeboller – chocolate-encased marshmallows.After getting a real flavor of Copenhagen’s culinary delights, your tour ends back at the start point.

Experience Copenhagen and enjoy local food with a knowledgeable guide!

Insight from a local about Danish food. We learned about the changes in Danish food over the last few decades. We stopped by several local restaurants and experienced the new Danish food, while getting a tour of Copenhagen! I loved the new style smorgasbord sandwiches and the Danish beer tasting! Our tour guide, Kat offered us a personalized and local view of Copenhagen. The street food was great, too. This tour offers a wonderful introduction to Copenhagen, it's people, and food.
Amazing tour! Kat was so...

Great tour!

Great tour! A bit on the pricier side as far as tours go but well worth it if you like food and drink. Knowledgeable and friendly guide, good eats. Was interesting to learn about the history and culture through food. Highly recommend. Good for solo travelers - everyone on my tour was solo.
Fun, delicious, informative

wonderful tour

Wonderful experience! We greatly enjoyed to the tour. We liked the variety of food options. Highly recommend it!
More than a culinary experience
, Mar 2020
Maria is a true local that had all the inside knowledge one would want on this tour! We started at the old market square and went to several more stops! Micro brewery included! Everything was wonderful and truly enjoyed the background info and history with all the stops. We also stopped at a candy store that is the last one to make the candy by hand! Organic and seasonal are a big thing here so that was a bonus as well! A must do while here!
