Arnold Busck bookstore in the centre of Copenhagen was established in 1896 by Arnold Busck. The bookstore has grown into a chain of stores, but ownership remains in the Busck family, where Helle Busck - the great granddaughter of Arnold Busck, is the CEO. In our flagship store in Købmagergade you will find a large selection of English books and travel guides, as well as good quality souvenirs and beautiful postcards. Our competent staff members are always ready to give you a personal book recommendation or help you find what you are looking for. On the ground floor you will find a popular coffee shop with a good selection of coffee, tea, cakes etc.

I went into Arnold Busck to look for a postcard to send a friend, and I was impressed with their selection of English books. They also have a nice bakery!

If you like books and sweet cup cakes, this is the perfect place. I spent an afternoon reading, drinking coffee and eating a fabulous cup cake.

A great place to find English books in Copenhagen. The shop in Stroget has a large collection of English novels. There also have a huge collection of travel books in English. The shop at the Spinderiet Mall is also nice with decent collection of books.

This is the heart of old town Copenhagen, with its
blend of charming old buildings and bold new
architecture, broad avenues and tiny streets as well
as picturesque canals and a modern harbor. The inner
city is home to the Royal Danish Theatre, which
consists of three buildings, two of which are new and
situated on the harbor front. The streets, squares and
