Shopping and strolling in Strøget

Strøget is the longest car-free street in the world and the most popular shopping area in Copenhagen. But in addition to a large number of shops, Strøget also offers numerous other attractions and is the perfect place for an afternoon stroll.

In the 1960s, Copenhagen gradually became busier and more congested and the small streets were unable the handle the amount of traffic. The region was made a car-free zone and named Strøget. The zone runs from Radhusplads to Kongens Nytorv and encompasses various streets, alleyways and squares. The selection of shops ranges from expensive brand stores to small boutiques and everything in between. The great advantage of Strøget is that one can easily combine shopping with some sightseeing. The region boasts many fine examples of Danish architecture. A variety of street artists create a lively atmosphere.

A look inside the cathedral

The Vor Frue Kirke, the cathedral of Copenhagen, is Denmark’s national cathedral. The current building dates back to 1829, but the history of this church already begins in the 13th century. Over time, the church burned down several times and was rebuilt again. The cathedral is famous for its sculptures of Christ and the Twelve Apostles, created by Danish sculptor Thorvaldsen.
