Best Shopping in Copenhagen

By Verdict Staff

Henry Vibskov

Danish fashion and design have never been more popular, which is reflected in Copenhagen’s plethora of home-grown designer shops and boutiques.

Shoppers should head to areas such as Strøget, the longest pedestrian street in Europe, or Vesterbrogade, another expansive shopping area full of designer outlets.
