The Danish capital is often considered as one of the most beautiful and cleanest cities of Europe. Budget travelers may claim that Copenhagen is an expensive city, but most frequent visitors agree that you get real value for the money spent. Although considered to be a compact and small city, Copenhagen never fails to surprise travelers. While you can always find a list of attractions online, we are sharing a few relevant details you must know before making your plans.
- Apartment rentals are better. While there are many hotels in the city, you will do better in a rental apartment, which is likely to offer all the luxury facilities. You can check online for holiday apartments Copenhagen, the best of which are located in Østerbro district.
- There are many food markets. If you want to cook your own meal, head to Torvehallerne to get some really good seasonal produce and fresh seafood. For ready meals and bites, go to Paper Island and Reffen, where there are many food stalls. By the way, there are fifteen Michelin Star restaurants in Copenhagen!
- Beet is amazing. Copenhagen has some of the best microbreweries in Europe, and the craft beer scene is incredible. You will be happy to know that it is acceptable and legal to drink alcohol in public in Denmark. Spend an evening enjoying the best brews, and if you have the time, take a tour of Carlsberg Brewery.
- Copenhagen is bike-friendly. You will find dedicated lanes for biking in all parts of the city, and Danes can be pretty aggressive on the road. Renting a bike with GPS-enabled tablet is easy, and that’s the best and cheapest way to get around. Being a small city, Copenhagen is not that hard to explore.
- Get the Copenhagen Card. You can ask for Copenhagen Card at the airport on arrival. The card offers access to as many as 80 attractions in the city for free, and you can use the card for using public transport too. Considering the entry fees of each place, that is worth paying for. The entry to Tivoli Garden is also included in the Copenhagen Card.
We also recommend that you check in advance for your stay. Copenhagen is busy in most parts of the year, and in winters, the rush often doubles up. Pack your bags and get going – We promise that Copenhagen will have at least a few surprises on each visit.
