Shopping along Stroget in Copenhagen, Denmark

Shopping along Stroget is a fashionistas paradise. Stroget is one of the most well known shopping streets in Copenhagen, tho’ it actually consists of 5 streets: Ostergade, Amagertorv, Nygade, Vimmelskaftet and Frederiksberggade. Phew! It has an intimate charm, due largely to it’s medieval origins and is both cosmopolitan and stylish. This is a perfect city break for fashion lovers who like well made quality goods.

This is also a great destination for history lovers and foodies too as you will see…

We decided to have breakfast right by Hojbro Plads, a square at the heart of Stroget along Amargertorv, in a cafe called Europa1989. The brunch menu sounded really good, and well as you can see, they didn’t disappoint!

The boys both opted for the full ‘Amagertorv’. The restaurant isn’t a looker as such, but everyone around was instagramming their breakfasts barely paying any attention to anything other than their plates of food!

Rather than all together like an English breakfast, here the components were separated.

I went for the vegetarian option and felt silly excited by the little pots and bowls of this and that. The yogurt they called Skyr was really special.

Charlotte picked and chose from the menus individual choices. Good girl, quite right. Pour that maple syrup over the bacon too, it’d be lovely!

Very satisfied we hit the streets just as the shops were opening. This meant we were ahead of the crowds. By lunch time it was really busy and you loose the feel of the place as you battle through the crowds a bit.

The vibe was cool, shabby chic with graffiti in places. The items for sale were mostly very stylish and of a high quality.

It felt quite quirky and I really liked it. Everywhere women pedalled these cargo bikes with little children in the front.

Peter Beier caught my eye. The whole family knows this will take me a bit of time and there is no point in protesting. It’s a must for all chocolate lovers who visit Copenhagen.

This box of chocolates looks perfect. Well, ideal if we were back in the UK, but even I can’t get through this many in a weekend!

After walking and window shopping we were getting thirsty. Time for some nourishment, so we head to 42Raw.

You’ve guessed it every thing is raw here. It’s very ‘in’. I’ve heard about their chocolate chip cookie, so I buy a few to try.

You can’t make an unhealthy choice here. It’s not possible.

Everything is ‘just as nature intended’. I feel I have my mojo back before we even get our smoothies served.

I felt very chuffed with my purchases. Those cookies do exercise the jaw, but I found them very moreish. Just put the Cadburys choccie chip versions out of your mind. These are grown up and guilt free!

We get our smoothies and they are extremely good. They taste super healthy but not like you are supping on regurgitated cud thankfully, instead they were sweet and refreshing.

We pass the front of the posh and swanky Hotel D’Angleterre and met a happy rich bloke.

Soon after, we find this curious ‘house’ of a Tage Anderson. It turns out his focus is to create the ‘whole’ in whatever he does. Bare with me, it’s really pretty…

The most striking feature, however, is the enormous hanging birdcage. The tweeting of these birds add another charm to the room.
