Visiting a city’s bookstores always provides a nice break from the noisy, packed-with-people touristic attractions. When right next to the halls with the bookshelves, a café serves warm cups of tea and ice-cold beers, relaxation is guaranteed. Discover Copenhagen’s best independent bookstores and make sure to stop by when travelling and exploring the city.
When The Booktrader was founded in 1983 by American bookseller David Grubb, it used to sell only books written English. When Lars Rasmussen became the owner, he added books written in Danish to the already-big collection of antiquarian books. Visitors will find a great selection of history, art, architecture, photography, and music books that cover a wide range of eras and styles.
