One thing that the Danes definitely know how to do is baking. Danish pastries and cookies are enjoyed worldwide and ostekage (cheesecake) has been around in Denmark for a very, very long time. Whether you’re looking for a simple slice of vanilla cheesecake or something decadently chocolatey, Copenhagen’s cheesecakes certainly don’t disappoint.
Cakenhagen sits right at the entrance to Tivoli and it’s just as delightful as the park itself. The classic cheesecake with its biscuit base is perfectly creamy and if you’re looking for something with a tangy kick then try the raspberry swirl. Chocolaholics simply must indulge in the triple chocolate cheesecake too!
