The Danish desserts
In theory and in practice.
Starting from the assumption that an experience is as total as more senses are involved in it, we believe that by stimulating your taste buds, you will have an even more unforgettable time in Copenhagen. You maybe have a sweet tooth and you would like to try the Danish desserts. Or you are simply curious to know how much sugar and butter is generally consumed in Denmark. During this guided tour you will discover the story behind some Danish sweets such as “Spandauer”, “Kransekagen” and “Fragilité”. You will know about the curious anecdotes that hide behind their names and the ingredients that make them special. Furthermore, we will mention the delicacies that we prepare on the occasion of the most important festivities along the year. If you, for instance, happen to be in Copenhagen for Christmas, Easter or Carnival, we will make you even try those special sweets. From the food market to a small factory, from the historical pastry shop to the trendiest chocolate shop…at the end of this tour you will have been given lots of suggestions about the Danish desserts, where to try them and even how to prepare them. This tour includes also a workshop during which you will prepare yourself a typical Danish sweet, which was brought to Denmark about a hundred years ago by a Danish confectioner. Since then it has become a very popular sweet treat throughout the whole country, and it is especially popular at birthday parties and other celebrations. During the workshop you will get to pipe foam onto marzipan bases and then dip them in 71% chocolate yourself. The workshop is a unique occasion not only to learn how to prepare a Danish sweet with your own hands, but also to spend some quality time with the people you want to share this sweet experience with. Lastly, you can try and make them at home with your family and friends since you will receive a recipe after the course.
We can upon request organize workshops during which other Danish desserts are prepared.

- How does this guided tour take place?
The ideal way to carry out this tour is on foot given that we are going to focus on a quite small area. However, we can arrange it differently upon your explicit request (e.g. bicycle, private car, private minivan).
- Is there anything more I need to know?
Just consider this guided tour as an occasion to have breakfast (a little later than usual).
- I am allergic/ intolerant to something. What should I do?
You only need to let us know. In this way we will arange the tour accordingly.
- I do not like some type of food. What should I do?
We kindly ask you to be as open as possible to new flavors as you may discover new tastes thanks to this experience. If you do not let yourself be carried away by new taste experiences, you will never be able to actually know what others are discussing about as well as to afford to share an opinion on the matter.
- How long in advance do I need to let you know about I am allergic/ intolerant?
Soonest, preferably at the moment of your booking.
- Will there be time for shopping?
This visit is designed to introduce you to the city through the food tradition and to give you all the information you need to possibly return with no rush to the places that you have most liked. If you are a couple or a small group (max. 5 people), we can agree to spend some time to shopping. On the other hand, if you are more than 5 people, we invite you to do it at another time, after the tour. In any case, if the whole group agrees, we are open to change our program accordingly. We only need to know it prior the tour, preferably at the time of booking. In case you are a big fan of shopping and you want to do it during the tour, what if we create a new customised shopping tour? Please contact us so we can agree further.
- Is there anything I have to bring?
We kindly ask you to bring with you a bottle of water (possibly to be filled during the tour instead of a disposable one) as most of the tastings do not include a drink. In this way, you will be never thirsty. If you do not bring a bottle, you will be able to buy some during the tour at your expense.
- How can I know more about the price for this visit?
We kindly ask you to contact us, but before that, you can read about our rates in the section “Terms and Conditions” on our webpage.
