I walked the Stroget every day when I was in Copenhagen during my 10-day trip. I walked it in the morning, afternoon and night. There are lots of options for food, coffee, drinks and shopping along this pedestrian walkway, and they range from cheap to expensive. As a frugal traveler, I found the China Box and schawarma stands to offer really good value for my money. The meals were filling and tasty, and came in at under 40 DKK. You'll find a few souvenir shops, ATMS and places that sell baked goods along here as well. This versatility makes the Stroget a good place for a stroll, as it has pretty much anything you might need.
What I really enjoyed about the Stroget is that all of the side streets that intersect it are also filled with great shops, restaurants and cafes. It's well worth strolling the Stroget and wandering off one of these side streets to just explore and see what there is to see.
It tends to get very, very crowded during the afternoon and early evenings, and on the weekends it's packed day and night. Watch out for cyclists and the occasional vehicle (there are intersections where vehicles drive across the walkway, and garbage-collections, police and ambulances sometimes drive right down the Stroget themselves). Be especially mindful of the tourists cruising around on the free city bikes, as many of them probably haven't ridden much, especially in such a crowded environment.
If you're traveling with young children, you may want to avoid this on weekend evenings, as there are lots of bars on and off the Stroget. I witnessed one fistfight, some drunken arguments, people urinating in public, throwing up, etc. Everything you'd expect from an area where young people and tourists go to drink, get wild and party. This is especially true after midnight on the weekends during spring and summer. Other than that though, during the day, this is a very pleasant place to walk about, check out the latest fashions, eat some food and generally just enjoy the laid-back atmosphere of Copenhagen.
