Found this restaurant by chance. A little hesitant to enter the small basement, with the stairs going into a not so shiny place. Luck favors the brave. We had to wait 15 mins until we get a table (booking is highly advised). Mostly known by the locals. While waiting we observed the awards on the wall, and thought "this could... More

Eating out in Copenhagen is expensive but this restaurant serves comforting traditional danish food for a fair price. I had pork loin with mushroom cream sauce and pickled cucumber for lunch and it was delicious. My friend had danish meatballs (don't have a picture!) which were really soft. The atmosphere in the restaurant was very chilled and cosy, a perfect... More

There is always a relaxed and nice atmosphere at restaurant Kronborg. And what I love Kronborg for is the rye bread. Many other lunch restaurants in Copenhagen use really boring rye bread. Im pretty sure at Kronborg they bake it them self. The smørrebrød is very classic. For me that is perfect. The prices are compared to others low. But... More

We stopped at the restaurant for lunch, it looks tiny from the outside as if you're sitting in the basement. We had to book a table and wait over thirty minutes (silly us thinking it would be less busy on a Wednesday) but it was worth the wait. I had pickled beef with horseradish and pickles The other half had... More

Booked this for a quick lunch before catching a flight home. We ordered 2 open sandwiches (one beef with onion and horseradish, one pork with red cabbage) which were both delicious. Also managed a slice of almond cake for dessert. Lovely atmosphere, very friendly service- a great place to try Smørrebrød! Highly recommend- a real must when visiting Copenhagen!

Went here on recommendation from someone we had met in a bar last night and we were not disappointed. Lovely selection of fish and meat dishes in typical Danish style. Very cosy, informal restaurant, book ahead, it was also very busy. I can´t say the service was good, or very good as it was actually excellent. Christina our waitress was... More

Kronborg is a traditional Danish restaurant where you can enjoy real Danish HYGGE. The menu is traditional and when you choose lunch at the restaurant, you have to try their traditionally SMØRREBRØD, which is really original. The raw materials are high quality, it is beautifully presented and the service is friendly and smiling. It's a good idea to make a... More

After googling the best places for open sandwiches in Copenhagen this one struck me as as the most comfortable option. Looked rather rustic and traditional from the photo's. Most places where you have to head down stairs too is ususlly a good bet. We came with a pram, which to be honest was bought for being light weight and small... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Indre By (Inner City)
This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its blend of charming old buildings and bold new architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which consists of three buildings, two of which are new and situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and venues of the inner city and its surrounding neighborhoods, are alive all year round with everything from jazz festivals to outdoor ice skating rinks and parachuting at the lakes right in the center of the city. This compact area boasts beautiful old castles, tranquil parks, and bustling squares where you can always find a bench to stretch out your legs whenever you need a break.
