Magasin du Nord

From draper's shop to megastore

The Magasin chain of department stores started out as a small draper's shop back in 1868. By the end of the century, Magasin had moved to considerably larger premises in the impressive Hôtel du Nord at Kongens Nytorv.

In those days, the building was fitted with 80 stoves and 600 gas lights to keep customers warm and comfortable. The second floor hosted a cycling track where ladies could try on their new cycling costumes.

Denmark's leading department stores

Much has changed since then. Magasin has become the country's leading chain of department stores. Magasin du Nord at Kongens Nytorv has direct access to the high-speed Metro.

Magasin du Nord is a premier shopping destination that enjoys an enviable location in the heart of the city. The seven-storey building boasts a huge variety of products including fashion, home design and furnishings, beauty and toiletries, books, toys, kitchenware, groceries, and a large delicatessen... If you know what you are looking for, they are bound to have it!
