Copenhagen Food News (July 2022) Openings, Events & Pop-Ups

It is summer in Copenhagen, which means that many of the Danes have abandoned the city and retreated to their summer houses, and the rest of us locals have fled south to warmer destinations. Because of this, lots of restaurants close for a few weeks in July during the summer holidays. But if you’re visiting Copenhagen this month, you won’t go hungry – there’s still quite a lot happening in the city that never stops eating. Plus, it’s the best time of year weather-wise to be in Scandinavia! Keep reading to see a list of the exciting new openings, events, pop-ups, and collabs happening this month in Copenhagen.
