Already in town?
If you're already in Copenhagen and you still need a map.. tourist offices in town all provide the usual scanty quick-overview-city-maps filled with ads and without much detail.. and that‘s okay if you just need to know where you are.. but for exploring the city my recommendation is to go to ..

The best map shop in all of Denmark - and it‘s conveniently right in the middle of town. .. So when you are anyway out shopping or just strolling I encourage you to swing by at "Nordic Map Shop" in Studiestræde 26- 30, situated in one of København's most charming quarters – the lovely Latin Quarter.

It is THE place for getting a good paper map of Copenhagen or any other map you could ever wish for. Here you can take your time and try them out yourself.

The Nordic Map Shop has a website however it‘s not exactly a cornucopia of information, but once you visit them in their shop you‘ll realize, they have a lot to offer.


And if you still lost your orientation .. ask someone for direction which is a good way to come in contact with people. At first they might be a bit shy but Danes usually speak excellent English and will be able to help you. So don't hesitate to ask someone.

Happy exploring ...
