Copenhagen - Post Report Question and Answers

Is this a "shopping post"? Are there interesting handicrafts, artwork, antiques, or other items that people typically buy there?

No, there isn't much to buy here and everything is expensive. I have bought plenty of stuff on my trips around Europe. Stockholm which is only a 4 1/2 hour trip by train has some excellent and reasonably priced art. - Feb 2022
