Explore the deliciously unique flavors of this culinary capital with a private guide


Join a fellow foodie for a culinary journey through the heart of Copenhagen and get a delicious taste of Denmark. From its traditional roots, the culinary scene in this small country has evolved into a world-renowned cuisine with 22 Michelin stars in Copenhagen alone! On this tasty tour, we will visit some of the best places in the city to experience the more traditional Danish flavors, while learning about food culture past and present and exploring its connection to hygge - that enviable Danish coziness.

Along the way, you will taste the original Danish pastry, sample traditional sweets, discover the unique Danish hot dog, savor local cheeses, and enjoy New Nordic-style smørrebrød (open-faced sandwich) accompanied by a local craft beer or juice at a Michelin Bib Gourmand restaurant . Our final stop will be the fabulous Torvehallerne Market, where we will explore local stalls and products before trying a delicious chocolate treat.

A Recent Review of this tour

If you like your food then this tour is for you - bring an appetite!!! An absolutely first rate tour of Danish food with a guide that can not only bring a knowledge of the modern and traditional cuisine of Denmark but also provide some historical context which expands upon the experience. Cannot recommend highly enough.
