Stroeget, Copenhagen

3.5
#2 of 7 in Neighborhoods in Denmark
A shopaholic's dream come true, Stroeget is a large, traffic-free shopping area in the center of the city. Clear of motorized traffic since the early 1960s, this is one of the longest pedestrian-friendly streets in Europe. Bookended by two major public squares, the street opens up into a number of side alleys, each one dotted by upscale shops, bars, and restaurants. Bustling with tourists and street performers, the area attracts nearly 100,000 daily visitors at the height of the tourist season and about half that many during the colder months. Start your stroll or bike ride at the area's famous porcelain store, located inside one of the city's oldest houses.

    We strolled along Stroget and focussed on design which was interesting. Of course you also find all the brands you'd find anywhere else.  more »

Where to stay in Copenhagen

Most of the hotels in Copenhagen are located in the central Vesterbro or hip Indre By areas, though there are many more adventurous (and somewhat more affordable) places to stay during your vacation. As in the rest of Denmark, accommodations in Copenhagen are quite expensive. If you're traveling on a tight budget, consider camping along the Mølleå River or staying in one of the city's many backpacker hostels. If you prefer an inexpensive hotel, explore options in the Helgolandsgade and Colbjørnsensgade neighborhoods. For a taste of Denmark's art scene, head to the up-and-coming Kongens Nytorv and Nyhavn areas. Travelers who like to stay outside of the main tourist areas should set their sights on one of the city's suburbs, like the northern section where you can stay at a beachfront hotel or on a houseboat.
