1. Christiania
The anarchic centre of 'alternative' Denmark, Christiania was founded in 1971 as a direct result of the student uprisings of the 1960s. Today Christiania is home to some 750 'outsiders' and is a Free City, meaning it is not part of the city, the country, or the European Union. It is a place full of atmosphere, but also of contradictions. One of the original ideas was to have a 'no car town', but nowadays the inhabitants have trouble finding parking spaces outside the district because of the multitude of tourist buses. Visitors should be aware that the sale of drugs is legal and that rabid-looking dogs run around freely. Guided tours can be arranged.
Address: Prinsessegade Copenhagen K

2. Israel Plads
On Saturdays between May and September the parking lot on Israel Plads makes way for an abundance of little shop owners and private citizens who set up shop and sell everything from teddy bears to shoe stands (as long as it is old and about to break)...
Address: Israels Plads Copenhagen K 1361
Opening hours: 8am-2pm Sat
Neighbourhood: Centre (Copenhagen K)

3. Nørrebro
Along the walls of Assistens Kirkegaard (the Nørrebro cemetery that also functions as a lively park), the locals set up little, spontaneous stands and sell whatever belongings they might not need. Or they will try to resell items bought last week, at a profit. The area is nice for a walk, and definitely a very authentic Copenhagen experience.
Address: Nørrebrogade Copenhagen N 2200
Opening hours: 8am-2pm Sat from May to Sep
Neighbourhood: Nørrebro (Copenhagen N)


1. København K
København K is the name of the inner part of Copenhagen City, but also of a second-hand shop situated in a hidden place (through a gate and past a yard) in one of the hottest parts of Copenhagen. The collection in this shop consists of the trendy worn clothes that have suddenly become fashionable because of their authenticity.

With the state of the clothes in mind the prices might seem high, but clothed with items from this shop you are sure to feel prepared to meet the Danish underground.
Address: Studiestræde 32 b Copenhagen K 1455
Opening hours: 11am-6pm Mon-Thu; 11am-7pm Fri; 11am-5pm Sat
Telephone: +45 33 33 03 60
Neighbourhood: Centre (Copenhagen K)
Nearest train: Nørreport Station

2. Green Square
This place is well out of Copenhagen's inner city, but the trip to Amager might be worthwhile if you really want to shop big. Here size definitely does matter as the building boasts a 70,000 sq ft shopping area with fine and rare European antiques of almost any style and age. The price range is mid to high-end.

The shop specialises in Chinese antiques, being best known for its Chinese furniture and wedding objects in red and black. As well as these oriental objects you will find a large selection of Danish antiques from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.

You can pay in cash, cheques or with Dancard.

3. Lauritz Christensen
Everything is beautiful at Lauritz Christensen. Situated by Dronning Louises Bro bridge, overlooking the Copenhagen Lakes from its Belle Époque mansion, the surroundings are just right for this large and closely packed selection of fine European antiques. Christensen specialises in entire dining-rooms, chandeliers, mirrors, and chests of drawers mainly from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries. Even more surprising, then, are the relatively moderate prices. The only credit card accepted is Dancard.
