    My favorite is Ishuset at Marselisborg Harbour, it is worth a visit.
    And also Dolce Vita at Trøjborg.

  2. Mikkel

    Vaffelbageriet in Fjellerup is missing from the list.

  3. Niels Jørgen Korsholm


    You need some current pictures of Denmark's Best Ice Cream Parlor.

    1. The editors

      Hi Niels. That is true, we just need to visit the place first.

  4. Niels Jørgen Korsholm


    Doesn't the pictures of Det Blå Ishus need to be changed to pictures of Guf & Kugler?

  5. Oliver Bugg

    Chris and Marios in Nexø and Gudhjem beat them all. They use pure ingredients, no filler. Greek tradition + the sunshine island = pure love.

  6. Adam Milborg

    Wrappers! New, good and delicious concept of homemade pancakes being rolled! Check out the page and see!

    Guf og Kugler in Nibe. Unmatched service. Definitely a first place for this lovely place.

  15. Jane

    I haven't been able to vote for Ismageriet. Neither yesterday Wednesday nor today?
    Hope that in the future there are only places that make their own ice cream in the poll. Otherwise it's a little silly :)

  16. Jane

    I'm not able to vote today, thursday?

  17. Susanne

    We love the ice cream from Frederiksberg Chokolade.
