Copenhagen Airport is what you might expect when it comes to a Scandinavian port of entry: sleek, chic, efficient and chock full of good eateries and shops. Whether you’re passing through or using CPH as your base airport for regional travel, carve out some time to enjoy the terminals’ nooks and crannies.
Passing through security at CPH is one example of how machines are taking over jobs humans used to do. An electronic sorting screen directs travelers to the shortest lines, thus easing the flow of traffic at the security checkpoint. TV screens and signs display what to take out of your luggage and place into bins.
Once past security, a bevy of shops are at your disposal. Beyond the duty-free options selling Danish beer, liquor and cigarettes, stop into souvenir shops for other trinkets inspired by Danish design.
Shopping options are as diverse as the dining options, with shops like About Vintage; contemporary apparel at H&M, Gucci and Burberry; and other stores like Bang & Olufsen and Flying Tiger. Visit Arket for an all-in-one shop with clothing and housewares, plus a central café that serves coffee, tea, pastries and sandwiches.
Restaurants cater to nearly every palate, like burger lovers at Cock’s and Cows; healthy eaters at Joe and the Juice or Pret A Manger; pizza fiends at Gorm’s; and wine snobs at Le Sommelier Bar & Bistro. There’s also the Danish beer brand Mikkeller where you can have one last pint of beer before your flight.
