Best place for gift shopping in Copenhagen is one of the many Christmas markets. I have listed my favorite markets for this year below.

If you don’t have time to visit one of the markets but want to find a special gift, search beyond the overcrowded main shopping streets in the city center. In Nørrebro you find a wide selection of stores with unique and sustainable products on Jægersborggade and in the area of Elmegade- Guldbergsgade. Vesterbro’s coziest street Værnedamsvej offers a few beautiful shops and lovely atmosphere. Visit Torvehallerne for fresh delicacies and flowers.
