Strøget

Copenhagen, Denmark

After a walk through Tivoli Gardens (which we'd visited at a more leisurely pace during other trips to Copenhagen), we headed for Strøget, Copenhagen's pedestrian shopping district.

Strøget is a series of traffic-free streets that run from City Hall Square to Kongens Nytorv, a parklike square at the edge of the Nyhavn district. Its total length is 3.2 km or 2 miles, and it's said to be the oldest and longest pedestrian shopping zone in the world. As you walk north along the Strøget, you'll pass shops in all price ranges, restaurants, fast-food outlets, and Copenhagen's top department stores.

  • Tip: One of Strøget's department stores, Illum, has a small Cruise Lounge (co-sponsored by Illum and Cruise Copenhagen) where cruise-ship passengers can show their passenger ID cards to sit, get a free cup of coffee tea, and get answers to questions about shopping or sightseeing. The Cruise Lounge is in the main department store, not in Illum Design (an annex that's located south of the department store). It replaces older cruise lounges that are mentioned in out-of-date guidebooks and Web sites.
