I went Strøget Shopping Street twice because the first time was rainy day and it was cold (5 degree celcius). The shops on this street sells clothes, accessories, souvenirs, food, drinks, toys and etc.

You can also find some souvenirs too. The price of each shop are differ. I bought souvenirs from this shop. I think goods are reasonable price comparing with other shops. I bought keyrings. Popular souvenirs are Little mermaid statue, Royal guard.

In fact, visiting National Museum of Denmark was not in my itinerary but I purchased a Copenhagen card so it's free admission. The location is not far from Copenhagen City Hall and shopping street. When I entered to the museum, I think it's over my expectation, worth to visit here but I had less time. The exhibition was great and interesting. You can explore the history and enjoy the display.
