This authentic, old-fashioned sweet factory is found not far from Nørreport station, specializing in 'bolcher', a type of hard candy. Sømods Bolcher is hidden at the back of the courtyard and recently celebrated 120 years of hand production. Enter the little shop on the first floor (prams and strollers must be left in the courtyard) and, after marvelling at the myriad of colors, sizes and varieties of candy on offer (and perhaps even a few free tastings) you can ask to go into the back room, where the sweets are still made much as they were a century ago, with old rollers and boilers: Tours run Mon-Fri from 9.15am to 3pm (when the last one starts) and it's free to participate.
