There is no law requiring retail stores to close on Sundays in Denmark, and opening hours will vary from store to store. With the exception of small local shops, most larger stores and shopping malls in Copenhagen are open on Sundays. However, be aware that most designer stores do not open on Sundays or are open with restricted hours.
Generally, most shops on Strøget, Copenhagen’s walking street, are open on Sundays between 10 am and 11 am to between 5 pm and 7 pm. But if you’re looking for a specific store, it’s wise to check their website first for their opening times.
Strøget is a pedestrianised street running from Rådhuspladsen to Kongens Nytorv. While it’s recognised as one of the longest pedestrianised streets in Europe, it comprises several streets and squares. Strøget is an ideal destination for shoppers looking for a variety of retail options and is also home to a vibrant selection of restaurants, cafes and bars.
