Danish Culture

Copenhagen has one of the most homogeneous cultures in the world. The city is inhabited almost entirely by ethnic Danes. Danes are well-educated, charming, and friendly folk. They are extremely proud of their heritage and strive to preserve their unique culture. Denmark elected to keep their national Kroner in circulation rather then adopt the Euro despite pressure from the rest of the European Union.

Danish have a distinct style. By western standards, the Danish are one of the most attractive races. Ethnic Danes are typically tall with blonde hair and blue eyes. Danes are liberal minded and have a fashion sense all their own. Copenhagen is celebrated as one of the world’s great design capitals. Perhaps due to Denmark’s wintry climate, Danes fully appreciate coziness and have perfected the art of creating it.

Danes have a great appreciation for music and literature. The Royal Orchestra is one of the oldest in the world and who hasn’t heard of Copenhagen’s famous literary son H.C. Anderson.

Settle in and enjoy Copenhagen’s warm Danish culture.

Copenhagen Shopping

Copenhagen’s famous shopping area is located on and around the pedestrian only street Strøget that runs through the city. Walking along Strøget you’ll find everything from the latest Danish fashions to tacky souvenirs. Strøget is crowded day and night. Consequently there is no better place to take in Danish culture. There are, however, a number of other popular shopping areas. The area around the Latin Quarter is perfect for antiquing. Then there is Copenhagen’s largest department store, Magasin du

Nord. Here you’ll find goodies ranging from clothing to dinnerware. Before concluding your shopping spree, be sure to check out one of Copenhagen’s popular flea markets. One of the more popular is the Israels Plads located in Norreport.
