The area
Neighbourhood: Indre By (Inner City)
This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which consists of three buildings, two of which are new and situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and venues of the inner city and its surrounding neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.

    Lovely part of the city
    We wandered through this part of the city enjoying the magnificent architecture and high end shops with something for everyone to either buy or look at through the windows. Plenty to look at and enjoy. There are cafes too with lots of lanes to explore.

    Main shopping/pedestrian street
    Stroget is the main and pretty long pedestrian shopping street in downtown CPH. I always rate such streets 3 stars, average, as more or less they're pretty much the same everywhere: plenty of outdoor cafes and restaurants, shops of medium range chains, street performers, etc... The only difference here in CPH is this one's much more expensive than most others.

    Worth seeing
    Stroeget is located in Old Town Copenhagen. The beautiful architecture is great for photography. I’ve often found myself window shopping and people watching. Several high end, high dollar shopping stores. Strolling through here and you’ll eventually come across Nyhavn. We mostly take advantage of the numerous restaurants.

    Stretch good enough for shopping , dining and walking
    This is an almost 2km stretch starting from Nyhavn and ending at the main plaza, or is it the Tivoli gardens amusement park. In this walk you could pass by restaurants of international choices , shops from local designer to the extreme luxury, and even fountains, churches etc. Even with a long stretch you could hardly notice that tiring experience since everything seems to be a feast for the senses.

    Underwhelmed
    Long pedestrian only area with high end shopping and bevy of restaurants. If you are walking, you can start at Nyhavn and end up at City Hall or Tivoli Gardens. Other than its length (about 1.5 miles) it isn't much different than many cities pedestrian only shopping streets!

    Not what it used to be...
    Strøget (the walking street) feels more and more like a tourist trap with each year that passes. I only manage to get to Copenhagen once every five or so years but I guess that's how I notice the gradual changes. From feeling like a rather exciting street in the early 80s with cafés, restaurants, and bars intermingled with shops, it's now almost all shops. A restaurant I ate at 5 years ago is gone. A lovely café at Amagertorv that was there for decades is being replaced by Louis Vuitton (it's already across the square but moving.) The experience of sitting in a café with linens and silverplated cutlery (verus a paper cup and plastic spoon from a coffee chain) overlooking Amagertorv is priceless. But that's disappearing. Obviously, it's capitalism that rules but I am surprised the local government does not do more to preserve the atmosphere of the area. Thank goodness there are still a few gems in Copenhagen if you look for them. Just not at Strøget.

This street is a super long street. It is the same one I walked down to get to Nyhavn. On both side of the street it's lined with both restaurants and stores. Some high-end and some fairly cheaper local stores .yet all expensive. It is a lively street and at all times filled with pedestrians going to and from the most popular area....Nyhavn.

This delightful urban artery bisects a safe, beautiful part of Copenhagen with upscale shopping and dining. Vehicles are prohibited on Stroeget, which is perfect for livability and comfort. Even with rain all afternoon, I enjoyed my stroll past great architecture and business. Will obviously return on my next trip to Copenhagen!
