Copenhagen is a compact big city packed with historic buildings lining its narrow cobbled streets. Here you will find a great mix of world-class gastronomy, beautiful architecture, award-winning design, clean harbour baths, the unique, free town of Christiania, and the seat of the world’s oldest monarchy. It has been named one of the best cities to live in several times, and it was the first city in the world to be named the ‘Bike City’ by the International Cycling Union – a title to which the several hundred bike lanes bear witness.

Restaurant Peder Oxe opened in 1978 and it is therefore one of Copenhagen’s oldest restaurants. Peder Oxe lies at the historical Gråbrødretorv, which makes your visit a big experience.
