Lovely afternoon of "tapas" type food. Little tastes of Copenhagen. Best staff ever. Ask for Edda, as she will be most helpful with restaurant dishes as well as close by attractions and shopping.

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
