Best smørrebrød and other traditional Danish food

A truly Danish food experience, you can get at lunch time in Copenhagen with the renowned smørrebrød (open faced sandwich). But at dinner you should treat yourself to some other Danish classic dishes too. They might claim less internatinal fame, but are loved by locals - for good reason.

Add to my trip

Invariably based on rye bread, smørrebrød can have an almost limitless number of different toppings, from herring, to raw beef, seafood and egg.
