The West end of Copenhagen is where the locals go for the best food experiences. After years of neglect, the upcoming area has now been developed into a foodie's dream. We give you an introduction to the very best eateries and food shops of the area, and season the stop-and-eat spots with the little known history of the neighborhood. Bring your appetite!
I am an archaeologist who has specialized in food. I have been a guide for over 10 years, in Italy, England and Denmark. For the last 4 years I have helped to build Copenhagen food tours, one of the most popular tour companies in Denmark, and have enjoyed meeting people from all over the world.
Directions to Starting Point
We start just outside the Central Train Station. Make your way to the Reventlowsgade entrance to the station. The tour begins outside in the street, alongside the bike racks. The station is reachable by all train lines except line F. Most bus lines will also take you there, including Lines 5A, 6A and 9A.
If you’d like to give VoiceMap tours as a gift, you have two options: choose the tours yourself, or buy a voucher redeemable against any of VoiceMap’s tours in 167 cities worldwide.
VoiceMap tours for large groups
If you’d like to provide groups of guests with access to a VoiceMap tour, you can buy a specific number of copies for a particular event or obtain a license for more regular use.
Places to stop along the way
We will guide you to the most interesting restaurants on the way, but there are several nice stops in the neighbourhood such as DGI byen, a work out center and swim bath. Fisketorvet shopping center is also nearby.
Best time of day
Lunchtime, around 1PM or even a little later. After 8PM is not advisable as there are still a few rough spots in the area, and most of the restaurants will either be full or closed by then.
Around the central train station, there are sometimes pickpockets and unsavory people hanging about. Be careful outside the back entrance. It's OK to walk past quickly, but be aware of your surroundings.
