Six Spots Open Over Christmas in Copenhagen

If you’re not planning on having your meals at home on Christmas, or you’ll be a traveler in Copenhagen over the holiday (24th – 26th December), there are plenty of restaurants and places open over Christmas. You even had a broad range of food choices; from Spanish tapas to Indian, from fancy to affordable. Given the time of year, it is recommended that you book in advance.

Here’s where to reserve a table so you can enjoy yourself without the hassle of holiday pressure (or holiday clean-up!):
