No matter whether you are someone seeking the unknown in a new city, or a regular tourist who wants to take back nice photos of iconic sights, Copenhagen is the place to be. As the capital of Denmark, Copenhagen is famed for the right reasons. It has incredible castles, palaces, amusement parks, and museums, and at the same time, you can spend a weekend here doing nothing but enjoying beer and Nordic cuisine. We have enlisted some of the best experiences that you must try in Copenhagen.
Copenhagen, like most part of Scandinavia, is not cheap. However, we would still recommend that you check for hotel Copenhagen apartments, instead of standard hotels. These rental apartments offer the best value for money, and you will find some amazing choices in Østerbro district. Also, when you arrive at the airport, ask for the Copenhagen Card, which offers entry to over 80 sights and attractions, besides free access to public transport. This is also a bike-friendly city, so if you have the fitness, take a GPS-enabled bike and get around. In Denmark, you are allowed to drink beer as you walk along, so that’s an advantage.
