Where to get your fix of silky, sumptuous, artisan chocolate.
Artisan chocolate is one of life’s great pleasures and an indulgence that everyone should partake in from time to time. Copenhagen is known the world over for its patisserie, and for good reason. We have some of the best chocolatiers in this city. Here are just 5 of the best places to get your artisan chocolate fix in Copenhagen.
1. Alida Marstrand Chokolade
📍Bredgade 14, 1260 København K
Alida Marstrand Chokolade has been making chocolate for the people of Copenhagen since 1930 and it’s clear that this experience has only resulted in some incredible products. Their skill with marzipan is also fantastic and currently, you can buy marzipan cigars, with nougat, cognac and dipped in dark chocolate with a crunchy hazelnut topping. Check out their website for more details, and to place an order.
2. Frellsen Chokolade
📍Arne Jacobsens Allé 12, 2300 København
Frellsen Chokolade makes and decorates all of their chocolates by hand, and the attention to detail shows. The chocolate is delicate and delicious, filled with all sorts of interesting flavours and decorated with the cutest designs. You can’t go wrong with a gift from Frellsen Chokolade, but that gift could, of course, be addressed to yourself! For more information on this chocolate shop, see the website.
3. Peter Beier Chokolade
📍Vesterbrogade 2V, 1550 København V
Peter Beier Chokolade is the place to go for the most amazing, delicious afternoon tea. This fantastic treat includes a host of tasty chocolates, marzipan desserts, and homemade ice-cream. This year’s ‘Christmas cream buns’ were beautiful pyramids of white and dark chocolate, filled with a foam flavoured with cinnamon, cardamom, allspice, ginger and orange peel. Check out their website to order or view their products list.
📍Kronprinsensgade 11, 1114 København
Summerbird makes delicious, moreish, organic chocolate. The shop specialises in amber chocolate, which has the subtlety of white chocolate with a caramel flavour and an amber colour. Their beautiful chocolate would make a brilliant gift.. for more information, check out their website.
5. Ro Chokolade
📍 Jægersborggade 25, 2200 København N
Ro Chokolade is an amazing little chocolate shop. Behind the scenes, it is manned by one man, Rasmus Olsen, and he is incredibly talented. The shop has a lovely, relaxed atmosphere and the flavour combinations are truly delicious. Therefore it would be a shame not to try Ro Chokolade’s chocolates at least once, and once you have you will be hooked. To read more about this delightful shop, check out the website.
