Smørrebrød - a walkable feast

Eat and walk your way through old Copenhagen.

Smørrebrød are the Danish Open Face sandwiches. Little food sculptures on rye bread. Traditional for family reunions, business lunches, or the plain lunchbox version. This food item came about in the bustling 1880’ies, but is rooted in older traditions.

Below the relish decorations we find old medeival and peasant food traditions from an age where food preservation was the key to survival in the North. Guided by hunger and curiosity we embark on an exploration of Culinary Copenhagen.

Smørrebrød can be pronounced smeurr’broud - or just say smorrebrod. It’s the same kind of food as the Swedish Smörgåsbord (smeurrgoesboard)

The tours comes in a regular version (3,5 hours), a luxury 5 hour version, and a diet version of 3 hours (with tasters only)

Tours should start at 10 or 11 PM, as Smørrebrød is lunch food.
