ABOUT THE Copenhagen Food Tour

Calling all foodies! Danish cuisine has experienced a surge in popularity in recent years and has become renowned for creativity, quality and innovation. But what is Danish food? This 2.5-hour food experience in Copenhagen will take you to five of the best and most inspiring local venues the city has to offer.


Your Copenhagen Food Tour starts at Espresso House Rådhuspladsen and finishes at Torvehallerne food market. Discover how both traditional recipes and modern cooking methods are used to create some of the most interesting dishes you have ever tasted!


Traditional Danish food

This tour will ensure you have the best food experience in Copenhagen. You'll start off with the basics. Try the original Danish hotdog with everything on it – mustard, ketchup, onions and of course remoulade, a traditional cucumber and cabbage mayonnaise. Have a taste of the fried Danish fish ball and bite into a Smørrebrød (the famous open-face sandwich). For dessert, enjoy the sweet treat that is a Danish pastry!

Copenhagen’s creative kitchens

With a growing interest in producing organic foods, the Danish food industry has found new and exciting ways to prepare traditional meals and use popular Danish ingredients to create original dishes. Learn about how some of the world’s best restaurants opened in Copenhagen and get an insight into how traditional cooking has not only survived, but influenced modern Danish kitchens.

Danish beer tastings for the over 18s!

Denmark is becoming world-famous for its beer scene, so we won't let you leave without trying a few local brews! Taste two different beers on this tour and decide for yourself which you like best! The five stops and beer tastings add up to a light meal, so make sure you come hungry for both knowledge and food!

Taste the best that Copenhagen has to offer!


You can see the beautiful sites of Copenhagen, and hear the local sounds, but no trip here would be complete without tasting some of the local culture too!

Our tasting experiences take you to bars, restaurants, pubs and beer gardens to taste the local food and drinks, and experience the local culture, atmosphere and flavors of the city!

We believe in supporting local communities, which is why we take you to local establishments on all of our tasting tours. All our tasting experiences have a fixed ticket price and include food and drink specials. Some of our tasting experiences have a maximum capacity so we recommend booking in advance, either during a Free Tour or online.
