NileGuide Expert tip:

Visitors to one of Slotsholmen's six museums (incl. Christiansborg) can grab a discount here Mon-Wed.


This lunch restaurant has become something of a landmark in Copenhagen, having been around since 1852. It serves traditional Danish open sandwiches or 'smørrebrød,' specializing in the archetypal herring dishes usually enjoyed with a Danish shot of schnaps. With a real old-fashioned, dark wood decor, the cafe does not open in the evenings; and being the only restaurant close to Christiansborg, Kanalcafeen is popular with politicians taking a breather from the nearby Parliament.
