Street food – only open in the summer:

Reffen – Copenhagen Street Food 

On Refshaleøen you will find Reffen aka Copenhagen Street Food, which has no less than 41 food stalls and bars spread over 6,000 square meters. You can sit at long tables or throw yourself in beach chairs and enjoy the view of the Port of Copenhagen, while enjoying delicious food and ice-cold drinks. The raw and industrial setting offers a skate park, craft shops, live music and parties – so there is plenty of entertainment for all ages. And you should not be intimidated by the distance to Refshaleøen, you can cycle, drive, take bus 9A, or sail with the harbor bus 991/992 to Reffen.

Broens Gadekøkken 

Right by the Inderhavnsbroen you will find Broens Gadekøkken, which serves tasty food and drinks from all over the world in 13 food stalls and bars. Here you can also hang out at long tables and in beach chairs, and with a central location on Christianshavn, Broens Gadekøkken has become a popular spot – whether you need a quick bite to eat or warm-up for a party.

Food markets – open all year:


A stone’s throw from Nørreport Station you will find Torvehallerne, which is Copenhagen’s largest food market. The market halls consist of two market halls, which together have over 60 stalls with fresh food, and a wide selection of food with take-away, specialty beers, wine and drinks. There is a limited number of seats at the food stalls, so the opportunity to sit and hang out outside or at Israel Square increases significantly when the sun is shining and in the summer.

Tivoli Food Hall 

Tivoli Food Hall is located on the corner of Vesterbrogade and Bernstorffsgade, and whether you are a guest at Tivoli or just a little hungry, it’s open to everyone. Tivoli Food Hall consists of a number of small food stalls and a common dining area overlooking Tivoli – and in summer also a fenced terrace towards Tivoli. All meals can be enjoyed at the food stalls, as take-away or taken out to Tivoli, if you have an entrance ticket. Unlike Tivoli, Tivoli Food Hall is open all year round, so there is plenty of opportunity to try the 15 food stalls.
