Strøget is the longest pedestrian street in Denmark, and when it opened, was the longest in Europe. It is a necessary stop if you want to window shop. Originally designed to relieve congestion in the Danish capital, the shopping street is for pedestrians and pedestrians only, and in a city where cycling is ubiquitous, this is an important detail.
Stretching over more than a kilometre, it is hard not to find something among the many decoration and fashion shops, from international brands (e.g. Benetton, Zara, Vera Moda), to local labels (e.g. Gina Knitting, a competitor of H&M).
As a family, the Lego shop is well worth the visit. The well-known Danish toy brand opened a shop in 2010 where, advised by a smiling staff, you can admire giant representations of Copenhagen and acquire, thanks to the ‘Pick a Brick' wall, any piece individually. An ideal opportunity to revisit childhood.
