Add a food tour in Copenhagen
Join a Copenhagen Food Tour with your tailor-made tours to this Scandinavian Capital.
Adding a food tour is a great way to learn about Danish cuisine, history and some landmarks in Copenhagen.
On one of our included local food tours, your guide Maria will meet you at 10am in front of the food halls near Norreport Station.
The tour starts with tasting some Danish cheeses followed by famous Bornholm rye crackers with jam. At the Bornholm Butikken you also had a chance to try some liquorice and aquavit. Just a taste as it was still only after 10am.
From here you walk to the Botanical Gardens and to the museum island. All the way you will learn some interesting facts about Copenhagen and the food history.
Taste Smorrebrod, Danish open sandwiches. Taste a variety of these famous sandwiches of herring, roast beef, chicken and meat pate. Service size is usually 2 pieces, but you will have smaller tasting sizes in order to taste all the varieties.
After lunch wander to the lakes and to the Norrebro area. Here stop at the local brewery to have a beer tasting - three different boutique beers made on the premise.
After the beer tasting, it's time to walk back to the city and to the Old town. Again learn some history of the areas while walking.
Denmark is famous for hotdogs or Polser as locals calls them, which you will taste when we arrived at the Old town. You can find a hotdog stand on every corner. Try organic and local sausages such a pork, beef or vegetarian.
Next is one of the oldest bakeries in Copenhagen, Sct Peder’s Bageri. They are well known for “Wednesday cinnamon buns”, only baked and served on Wednesdays. It’s a tradition in Copenhagen to get some cinnamon buns for your friends or work on Wednesdays and this tradition began from this bakery.
Before the tour finishs, you will visit a candy store opened at 1891 where they still make the candies at this location in the traditional way. Nothing has changed except the credit card machines. From here return to the market halls, where you have a chance to buy some of the items with the help of the guide.
All food you taste on this food tour of Copenhagen follows the new Nordic food manifesto movement and made from organic and local products.
It’s a good way to learn not only Danish but also Scandinavian cuisine. Take good walking shoes with you. Also remember to ask for some cooking recipes from Bornholm Butikken to learn how to use sweet liquorice syrup for cooking.
