Bang & Olufsen This über-stylish, sleek store is a high-tech marvel for shoppers looking for the latest media gadget.

Bredgade (Bredstreet) A veritable playground for antique collectors, with ample opportunities to sleuth for the best classical pieces. Don't miss street numbers 2, 21 & 32, where Klassik's interior (above) feels like an sleek lounge straight from the 1960s. A few doors down, you will find Design Museum Denmark and its shop, which offers a range of pieces by Danish design icons.

Dansk Design Center Located on the famous HC Andersens Boulevard, next door to Tivoli, you will find the Danish Design Center, which features innovative exhibitions and a gift shop full of contemporary design objects.
