A visit at Illum in Copenhagen is a must. Several floors of Danish and Scandinavian design. Here you will find beautiful furniture, stylish lamps, porcelain, glass and gorgeous kitchen equipment. Here you can really go shopping if you have money

The Top floor restaurant has to be the restaturant in the Inner City of Copenhagen with the lowest standards for quality of food and service. As a native of the city for most of my life, i should be able to speak with some experience....More

One of my favourite two shops, probably anywhere. Brilliant range of Danish designed products, clean, bright, so well presented puts UK department stores to shame. I love being there and the resturant and coffee shops in the roof are not to be missed

Visited the rooftop bar. Awesome set up, friendly staff but 196k for a pint and a half of Jacobsen 🇩🇰🍺 is too much. Amazing set up, but far better value for money elsewhere.

Everything that is good in Danish design (and some other nations as well); the store is itself a wonderful place in which to browse. Go to the top floor for splendid views across the city and visit the restaurant - 4 or 5 different types...More

It's interesting to walk through this store and see the culture of Denmark in the streamlined designs and beautiful products.

This is a very nice upscale department store. I might compare it to Bloomingdales. We happened to be there during the summer sale so the prices were a little better. We especially enjoyed the top floor that has several different restaurants.

Great department store with all the major brands in a modern danish vibe. All the salespeople look like models and provide friendly service. Do not forget to visit the rooftop food court for a drink or a quick bite to eat. If you purchase items...More

Situated in the city centre, Illum’s department store is a must. There are the best brands in clothing. Downstairs, you will find the Holm bakery as well as the toilets. Highly recommended is the rooftop, where there are several good restaurants. Two of them, Skagen...More

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
